Highly recommend Romy! She was so nice to deal with from the very beginning, and guided & supported us through every step! The energy she brought to our ceremony was incredible, she created such a buzz! She really took the time to get to know our story and it was very apparent during the ceremony that she had put a lot of work into it! We are so grateful! She really made it so special for us! Thank you Romy!

Romy was so helpful from the outset. She was clear and concise when helping us with the legalities and she was so much fun when helping us plan the ceremony! The perfect balance of what you need. I think every single person at our wedding commented on how much they enjoyed our ceremony, how personal and relaxed it was but all the while capturing the importance of why we were all there! We couldn't recommend Romy any higher and are so glad she was recommended to us also.

I can’t say enough good things about Romy. From the first day we contacted her, she has been great. Always there to answer questions and give advice. Our ceremony was absolutely perfect. Better than we could have imagined. It was so personal, special and relaxed - everything we wanted. We laughed and cried a lot. Everyone came up to us afterwards to tell us how great and unique it was. It was just beautiful and it was all thanks to Romy.

We would 100% recommend Romy as a wedding celebrant. We live overseas so didn't meet Romy until our wedding day but knew from our very first skype chat that she was the celebrant for us. The ceremony was everything we wanted it to be – a lovely balance of emotion, warmth and humour. Several guests commented that it was the most emotional ceremony they had ever witnessed! It was also the first humanist ceremony for a number of our guests and they all loved how personal and touching it was. Romy's joy, warmth and enthusiasm shone through in spades and set the perfect tone for the rest of our day. Romy was also really informative both before and after the wedding and helped steer us through the process and paperwork. We were so glad to have Romy be such a big part of our special day and urge anyone who is still trying to find their perfect celebrant, to reach out to Romy. You won't regret it.

Well where can we start.. Romy is just outstanding and very talented at what she does, she is compassionate and genuine! From the moment we contacted Romy she made the process seamless and personable! She made our day so unique to us as family and I felt like the guest were very much part of the ceremony, she will be the enduring highlight of our wedding day long after the event! Thank you Romy for all the ways you go above and beyond to support us and to make it memorable for us and our guests. I can’t recommend Romy highly enough!!

Romy is the perfect celebrant - professional, warm, knowledgable and supportive from the moment we first spoke with her. She made the entire process of planning the ceremony a breeze for us. We were left in awe during the ceremony as we, and our guests, laughed, cried and felt surrounded by love. Romy, thank you for the care and attention that you put into our ceremony. We (and all our guests) loved every aspect of the celebration and we couldn't have asked for anything more. We will forever cherish the memories that you helped us create. With love, Ruth & Bob

Romy was absolutely AMAZING! We had our wedding outside in the Fitzgeralds Woodlands Adare and the ceremony was beyond anything we could have ever asked for! So simple yet so personal to us. Anything we asked Romy to bring into the ceremony she did without any hesitation. We wanted a quick ceremony of 30mins and she did just that. Our guests we're singing her praises and the style of how she did the ceremony. Absolutely 10/10. We wish we could do it all over again!

Romy delivered such a beautiful, personal and relaxed ceremony for us that was the highlight of the day for so many of our guests! From the start, Romy is organised and so professional when it comes to helping plan a ceremony, especially when it's all new and you've no idea where to start! I don't think I stopped smiling and laughing the whole way through the ceremony, and with the way Romy delivered it, it brought our story to our guests so it felt like they were included too on the day. Romy is such a beautiful relaxed presence to have on the wedding day and really made me feel at ease!

Romy did such an incredible ceremony for us. She created such a relaxed and comforting environment and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect, personal or beautiful service. Everyone said how amazing it was and we really felt the love in the room that she created. We would highly recommend Romy and you will not go wrong if you choose her for your ceremony. She was incredible. Thanks again Romy, Jenny and Alan

Romy was an absolute pleasure to deal with from start to finish - from the moment we chose A Beautiful Ceremony, through numerous lockdowns and a postponment we knew we were in safe hands. On the day of our wedding she really set the tone for what was an amazing day with a ceremony that was both personal and memorable in equal measure. So many of our guests raved about her and its easy to see why. We could not recommend Romy highly enough - she is a true professional.

I don’t even have words to express how grateful I am that I found Romy to do our ceremony! She is the nicest person to deal with and completely customises your ceremony to you. She helped me so much during the planning process and really put me and my partner at ease. Romy has such a lovely, bubbly attitude and is just a fantastic person all round. Everyone was raving about Romy and our ceremony and how personal it was we couldn’t have been happier. I would recommend Romy to anyone she really is an earth angel!

Romy made our wedding day an absolute day to remember. She is so experienced and gifted at what she does. From the moment we met her we knew we had made a wonderful decision. Her personality is so warm, bright and friendly, we were completely put at ease at our zoom meetings. Throughout the uncertainty of Covid, her communication and advice was so helpful, and she didn’t bat an eyelid when I only sent my vows on last minute! Romy has a serene and calming presence and was on hand that morning to help with pinning last minute buttonholes but injected a healthy dose of fun to proceedings as well. Many of the older guests who would not be used to a ceremony outside of a church went out of their way to let us know how personal and beautiful they thought the whole service was. We had so many people comment that it was the best wedding ceremony they had been to, and I have to agree! The ceremony was without doubt my favourite part of the day, I had a big smile on my face for all of it (when I wasn’t laughing or wiping away tears!)

Gabrielle gave us the most beautiful, touching and love filled ceremony. It was more than we hoped for; it was funny and so personal to us. Our guests laughed and cried with us and we even had two couples ask us how we managed to find her and what sort of ceremony it was so they could start planning for their own weddings. Romy was so responsive and helpful and both ladies managed to keep me calm when panic mode set in. I can't thank Gabrielle enough for giving us a truly beautiful ceremony.

Gabrielle was our celebrant for our wedding. The ceremony was written beautifully, it was very personal to the two of us which is something we really wanted. We felt that Gabrielle had taken the time to get to know us and understand us as a couple. All of guests commented on how amazing Gabrielle was and that it was the best and nicest ceremony they had ever attended. Thank you so much Gabrielle for making our day so special.

When we set out to plan our wedding we were set on having a very quick ceremony with not a lot to it. Thanks to Gabrielle, it was actually the highlight of the day. She helped us compose a wonderful and very personal ceremony that created such a tremendous feeling of warmth and joy. Even going as far to spritz the ceremony room with lavender before the ceremony. Lavender was a huge part of our theme and we didn’t even ask her to do this. It just goes to show that she will go the extra mile for you. She was also an extremely calming and supportive force throughout the planning and on the day. Our guests told us it was the most beautiful and personal ceremony they’ve ever attended. Thank you Gabrielle!

Romy was our celebrant in June 2021 in the K Club for our micro-wedding. We had the most wonderfully meaningful but also super-funny ceremony! Romy made everything so personal and special. Our guests were part laughing and part crying happy tears during the ceremony. My mum was skeptical of us having a non-religious ceremony but Romy really and truly won her over!! We had an original date of March 2021 before having to postpone to June 2021 due to COVID. This was no hassle for Romy who was fully flexible and very understanding of the stresses of trying to plan a wedding during the pandemic. Romy was very helpful in the run-up to the wedding and answered all our questions - not just about the ceremony, but various wedding day tips and dos and donts! she accommodated all our readings, music and desired rituals into the running order. She was even kind enough to stay after the ceremony and help us with our photographs - it was a slightly wet and windy day and she helped our photographer and us with some giant umbrellas! Romy's website was also a godsend for inspiration for readings, vows, rituals and promises and our ceremony would definitely have not been the same without this guidance! We wish we could get married again so we could meet and work with Romy one more time! Would recommend her to anyone.

We had our beautiful micro wedding ceremony with Romy during level 5 restrictions. Even though it was a very uncertain and stressful time, planning the ceremony with Romy was very easy and enjoyable. We could pick different vows, rituals or readings from a huge variety of ideas on her website. Romy was able to adapt our plans so that we could include the family members who were there on the day. We did a candle lighting ceremony which included everyone (6guests) instead of just the two mothers. This worked out really nice! Whenever we spoke or emailed Romy in the weeks leading up to the wedding, when we didn't know what numbers would, or what the ceremony would look like with 6 guests, Romy reignited our excitement with her enthusiasm for our special day. We never envisioned having such a small wedding but it was perfect. Romy lights up the room with her positive energy and will make any couple feel very loved and special on their wedding day.

Our wedding took place in Rathsallagh Wicklow private wedding chapel by Romy mc Auley. She was very natural with the ceremony and included everything we wanted we did a candle service who everyone lit a candle to join both our families together. She knew exactly how to do it. I felt from the first time I contacted her I knew that she had the whole ceremony in control. I nearly didn’t contact her because she was using a address but she is completely based in Ireland. Our first wedding venue was to be in Connemara and she had no problem going there but we ended up having to change everything due to Covid and she worked with us every bit of the way. I felt she made our wedding day that little more special.

From the moment we first contacted Romy through email, we knew we had made the right choice! She is genuinely a breath of fresh air....During what was undoubtedly a hugely stressful time due to the looming further lockdown restrictions, Romy was like a ray of sunshine and hope. She was so reassuring and positive, it was exactly what I needed! Her attention to detail throughout the ceremony was second to none. Our guests couldn't believe that we had never met her in person prior to the wedding as she has a great way of obtaining lots of info from the bride and groom before the big day and uses this so cleverly throughout the ceremony, making it truly personal and in my eyes, magical!! I would 100% recommend Romy to any future couple. You are in safe hands and will not be disappointed!

From our first contact with Romy and Gabe we were met with genuine enthusiasm and support. These women really love what they do! They’re professional as well as warm and friendly. Organising our wedding during a pandemic inevitably led to uncertainty and changes in plans. Romy and Gabe supported us while we made difficult decisions and were flexible and understanding as we pushed our wedding day back and then brought it forward again! They were extremely helpful in answering any questions we had and gave us the guidance we needed to prepare our ceremony. Their website members’ area provided us with plenty of ideas and possibilities for readings and rituals to customize our ceremony. Before our wedding day, Gabe spent time getting to know us and listening to what we wanted. On the day, she delivered a personalized and beautifully written ceremony with warmth and sincerity, leading to plenty of laughs and just a few tears! Gabe was kind, calm and reassuring to both of us as well as our guests, making everyone feel comfortable and involved in the ceremony. Thanks to Gabe and Romy, our ceremony was more than we could have hoped for and will be remembered as one of the highlights of our day.

Our day wouldn’t have been the same without Romy. From the moment we met Romy to finally making it to our big day, she was our biggest cheerleader! Having to cancel our original date 5 days before the big day just as the pandemic was really kicking off, and a further 2 cancellations, there was never a moment where we had to think that she wouldn’t be there... Romy was just as determined to be there on our big day as we were! Romy truly gets to know each and every one of her couples and then makes the most personal ceremony you could think of. It’s like being married by a family member really and that makes the day so much more special (especially when most of our families couldn’t be there with us). There was never a dull moment throughout the ceremony and both the husband and myself felt totally relaxed. I personally had never been to a civil ceremony so I hadn’t a notion what to expect and I wouldn’t change a thing. From the moment Romy came to see me in my room before hand to see how I was doing, to her laughing with us throughout the ceremony, to pulling over her car to get another photo with us as she was leaving... honestly such an amazing person. You know you picked the right person to be part of your day when she is one of the main memories that brings a smile to your face.

Romy from A Beautiful Ceremony provided the perfect ceremony that myself and my husband were looking for. We wanted a tailored, personal, and small ceremony to share with friends and family. From the moment we met Romy she was extremely helpful, supportive, kind and put our wedding nerves at ease with her wisdom. There was no question too big or too small to ask. Romy provided us with a range of ideas for the structure of the ceremony, readings and rituals. Both family and friends commented on how lovely and personal the ceremony was and how they felt Romy's warm, humorous and professional presence brought it all together. I cannot recommend Romy and A Beautiful Ceremony enough to other couples, she really did put me (the bride) at ease on what turned out to be the best day of my life. Thank you Romy!

Romy truly was a god send. Due to the pandemic it was our third attempt at a wedding and a change in the rules, caused us to have changes again before the big day. Romy helped us throughout the process and made sure that our day went off without a hitch. We ended having a very small ceremony. The service was warm and thoughtful and she really made the day special. I would highly recommend A Beautiful Ceremony and Romy to anybody planning a wedding.

We ended up having a very intermate ceremony (just 4 people) but they truly made the experience. We plan on having a renewal ceremony next year and we can't think of anyone other that Romy or Gabrielle to do this. If you are looking for a Celebrant 100% go with a Beautiful Ceremony.

Romy is fantastic to work with and we are so grateful for everything she did to help us. Having to change the wedding date 3 times due to COVID, she was a massive support and nothing was a bother to her. She kept us right with all of the documents and the paperwork and made everything so clear. The ceremony was so personal, it was completely unique to us and that is a total reflection of the time and effort she put's into the work that she does. Romy is incredible at her job and she made our wedding ceremony so special. She strike's the perfect balance of humour, sentimentality and love with her ceremonies.

I can’t rate Romy and Gabrielle high enough. From the start of our planning through to the ceremony itself I felt like I was in safe hands. We chose a micro ceremony and felt supported throughout while also knowing we were able to set the tone we wanted on the day. They are a joy to work with and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending them to anyone who is looking for a celebrant to marry them.
Response from Romy McAuley - OSE Registered Solemniser
Thank you Katie & James!! So lovely to be a part of your gorgeous day in the Shelbourne! I know we only had a very quick little chat after the ceremony ourselves... but it was lovely to be able to meet you too! Gabe absolutely LOVED helping you both. from the both of us, thank you again!!! xx Gabrielle & Romy

Romy was amazing. She met us the day before our ceremony to legally marry us. She did not charge anything extra for this service. Her ceremony was so thoughtful and it was clear that she had spent a considerable amount of time preparing. Everyone said that our ceremony was so special. She was super professional and helpful. We would 100% recommend her for anyone getting married and looking for someone who will put together a very personal and lovely ceremony.

On of our very few couples who persevered with their original 2020 wedding date - and I am soooo pleased you both did! What an absolutely fantastic day with your family & friends at your family home for the ceremony. It's always so special to have that added bit of meaning to your day. THANK YOU BOTH Eleanor & Eamon soooo much for asking me to help with your amazing garden wedding ceremony. x Romes

We were so happy with all of our interactions with Romy, she was an absolute pleasure from start to finish. We managed to turn around our ceremony in a matter of days thanks to her. She was available night and day by phone and email to answer all my pesky questions. She was amazing in the lead up to and on the day itself - and made it all so easy and straightforward. Her personality on the day was so warm and lovely in addition to ultra-efficient and flexible - very unusual combination in my experience, but invaluable given the circumstances. She also has a lovely calm aura which really helped when things got a little stressful at the last minute? She has a great sense of humour too and really fitted in to our tiny covid ceremony. I can’t recommend her enough!

Nothing about our day went as we intended except for the fact that we actually got married. We also had to plan it with one of us was in the states and other one here. Originally, Gabreilla was to marry us but the whole world came to a shut down because of COVID and up until 2 weeks before the wedding, we had no idea if it would even be allowed. Through the whole process Romy was right there for us every step of the way, she even found a venue for us that were willing to make it work for us and be within all the travel restrictions. We had no clue what we where doing from the start and she provided us with information and ideas to really make the ceremony about us. I cant thank her enough for how personal she made the ceremony and the extra little bits she put into it all. Considering we had a micro wedding and where not allowed family, she ensured that everyone watching on the laptop had a beautiful view of us and the venue. She dealt with so many adversities to ensure that our ceremony and day was special and for a moment we forgot Covid even was a thing. We are having our "big" wedding day next year with family and we have asked Romy to re preform the ceremony so all our family and friends can enjoy it the way we intended. Thanks so much for everything.

I know you've written some beautiful and just lovely words to me... but i am absolutely lost for words when it comes to how much I appreciate what you have said. There was stress, worry, heartache - but you both worked SO hard and persevered and absolutely would not let this day pass. In the moment of you both saying your vows to each other, even with your family only able to watch on via a computer screen, everything in the outside world just melted away, and the only thing that mattered was you two. I will always hold a very special place in my heart for your very intimate micro ceremony. small in size, but huge in love. THANK YOU. x Romes

My husband and I planned our destination wedding in Ireland at Kilkea Castle from Texas. Planning a wedding overseas can be quite stressful, but with the help of amazing vendors it is so worth the effort. Wes and I have been trying to find the words to fully express our gratitude for the role Romy played in our wedding day. The ceremony was beyond beautiful and far exceeded all of our expectations. We can't thank Romy enough for all of the hours she spent leading up to the day talking with us, getting to know us, learning about our love for one another, and crafting a ceremony that was absolutely perfect. She was kind, personable, and professional throughout the entire process. We have gotten so many nice comments from our guests on how eloquently spoken she was and how tailored the ceremony was for us, and we couldn't agree more. We have enjoyed reminiscing on that day, and wish we could go back and re-live March 14 over and over. We must also give Romy a huge thank you for showing up for us as COVID-19, a global pandemic, began to shut the world down. We highly recommend Romy.

Although it was ever-so-slightly changed with some of original plans due to Covid... if we're going to shutdown - might as well go out with a fantastic celebration! And what a day it was.

Where do we begin.... Romy was recommended to us by close friends after they attended a wedding in August 2018 where they were simply blown away by how beautiful it was and really could not speak higher of the celebrant. Fast forward 12months and we are that couple praising Romy and a Beautiful Ceremony (its all in the name really)! From our first telephone discussion I knew this was going to be something special, Romy sent us a few questionnaires both as a couple and individually where we could give her feedback on one another, we met in November around 8wks before our big day and from there she created the most beautiful and memorable celebration, one we will treasure forever! Although we're only married a little over 2wks I've had so many wonderful compliments from family & friends who attended the day, I wish I could share all of our pictures from the ceremony to show just how much love and laughter was in the room - all made so very special by Romy. If you are getting married and want a celebration that really outlines YOU as a couple, so personal and loving then please please make the right choice and contact A Beautiful Ceremony, you will not be sorry! We're anticipating our video so we can relive it all over again. Much Love always, Aimee & Stephen xx

We cannot speak highly enough of Romy as a celebrant. We live in London so all of our contact in the run up to the wedding was over Skype video call, email etc. This did not stop Romy understanding exactly what we were looking for, and we felt like we knew her by the time we met on the day. She had a wonderful way of putting people, us, the audience, everyone (!) at ease, and we had the perfect combination of warmth and informality that we wanted as part of the ceremony (though still incorporating several formal/ traditional aspects). Many guests complimented the service being one of the best they had attended, in particular noting Romy. We were delighted we chose her for the ceremony and she will forever be part of that happy memory.

It was an absolute pleasure to work with Romy throughout the entire wedding process. I really wanted our Solemniser to see who we were as a couple and to reflect that in the service. Romy spent alot of time getting to know us and I really felt that came through in the service, it was not in anyway forced or generic. I spent a lot of time researching different celebrants throughout Ireland and knew Romy was the best after the very first conversation (even though she lived furthest from our venue-we really wanted her). She made me feel instantly at ease and gave us so much guidance and flexibility over our service from start to finish. She balanced our ceremony beautifully; it it was light and humerus at times (without being silly), romantic, emotional and incredibly memorable. She diffused all of that pre-ceremony tension from the room immediately. We have had so compliments about our service in the past month, saying how beautiful and relaxed it was. It was definitely one of my favourite parts of the entire day, and I am so thankful to Romy for making it what it was. I could not recommend her more.

We couldn't have asked for anyone better than Romy. She orchestrated the best day of our lives and it wouldn't have been the same without her. She kept the both of us calm and was able to inject some humour into the ceremony while keeping it very professional. She was also kind enough to stay behind after the ceremony to help the photographer with some of his shots. We chose Romy after some recommendations we had found and we couldn't be happier.

If you want a very personal and at the same time uplifting ceremony then book Romy. We met her once 2weeks before the wedding and filled in her questionnaire and that resulted in guests asking us how long Romy knew us because she made the ceremony sound like us being friends for a long time. Everyone commented on how touching the ceremony was but also how funny and lighthearted. Romy stayed around for a long time afterwards just chatting with everyone and they all loved her. She is so easy going and checked in with us on the day to make sure we know what will happen and we’re relaxed, she fixed the flowers for the grooms party and asked everyone very nicely to put the phones away so when I walked in I could see everyone’s face instead of a sea of phones and I will never forget this experience. From the bottom of our hearts: a big THANK you to you, Romy!

Our celebrant was Romy and from the beginning to the end, the service was amazing. I have always assumed that the ceremony part of the wedding would be very cumbersome and difficult to plan out, but to my suprise Romy was with us every step of the way. I could not be more happy with how our ceremony turned out, extra steps were taken to wrap our crios and our wedding ring pouch. Our certificate was placed in a protective envelope to keep it safe while we traveled, it's all in the detail and Romy got all the details right.

Romy was such a sweet delight to work with. What I really enjoyed and appreciated most about her was that she was incredibly invested in and eager to ensure that our ceremony was perfect for us as a couple and not just something cookie cutter. She provided a ton of resources, was always available to schedule a call when we felt like we wanted to chat something through, and was open to any feedback that we had on the script as she took no request for modification personally. In the end, she surprised us by reading a few of our own words about each other, which I'm pretty sure left no dry eyes in the house. Afterwards, a number of our friends and family came up to us to tell us what a wonderful job they thought she did.

Where can we begin with the service offered by A Beautiful Ceremony on our wedding day. Since we met Romy at the wedding fair , we had a strong connection and seemed that we knew her for a long time and there was no doubt we were going to pick ABC as the celebrant of our special day. Romy is so professional and she knows exactly how to make you feel special. From day one she emailed us all the details required for delivering the best ceremony and she was in contact with us to make sure that everything will go according to the plan. She was so friendly and we felt that she was part of our family as she tailored the ceremony to match our love story. There are no words to express how we felt that day and how our families felt too. We would highly recommend ABC for any type of ceremony as they are very flexible and they make the experience unique to every couple as it is not just a standard ceremony, it is a personalized ceremony that they put together and deliver it in a royal way. We could not thank ABC enough for all the effort (but I know there was no effort as everything is a pleasure to ABC) and the thought that went in to create a fairy tale moment.

The wedding service was tailored so uniquely to ourselves and our relationship. Many of our guests commented on how special it was.

We approached Gabrielle and Romy about 10 months before our wedding, and from then on our experience with them was second to none. We live in the UK and when we came to Slane to do a food tasting at our venue, Gabe met us to discuss how we might like the ceremony to go. What was scheduled for a short chat ended up with us talking for almost 3 hours! We talked about our individual stories and those of us as a couple, our loves and interests, and those of our families and friends. Gabe took us through all the ceremony options and we discussed readings and music. It was such an enjoyable and warm experience, we really felt so comfortable and familiar with Gabe from the outset. We had lots of communication back and forth in the interim, with Gabe being super patient with our sometimes slow responses! On the day of the wedding, Gabe arrived hours early to get a feel for the venue and the ceremony space. She met with me (the Groom) 2 hours before the ceremony to go over everything and make sure we were all comfortable, before meeting with the bride to do the same afterwards. The ceremony was just stunning. We lost track of how many comments we had from guests afterwards about how beautiful, personal and uplifting it was. We went for a non-religious ceremony, but Gabe helped us to sprinkle references to religion in there to make those religious members of our family feel welcome and part of the ceremony (my dad read a religious prayer of the faithful, for example), and this was remarked on so positively by those family members. We couldn't recommend Gabe and Romy highly enough, and we will 100% be recommending them to any friends getting married in the years to come.

I had to organise our wedding in “shotgun” style with just days to the 3 month notice requirement. Romy was the first celebrant I spoke to & I think I laughed & smiled through the whole call & beyond. I knew I didn’t need to make any more calls. She was the one. Romy was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. At very short notice she agreed to come out to meet us at our venue & set out all that needed to be done in a very relaxed and calm manner, taking on board all our thoughts & ideas and making it all seem possible. My skeptical groom was instantly convinced and reassured. We worked together around hectic schedules to get our ceremony order and wording just right for our unique set up and when the day came, she managed minor set up & equipment changes with ease & grace, helped pin buttonholes, reassured us at key moments, chatted with family & friends & just became part of our intimate group with zero fuss, & delivered our ceremony with charm & heaps of good humour! Our photos are evidence to this - I didn’t stop laughing all day. It was perfect in every way. Given the tight turnaround we hadn’t planned on anything more than a registry office signing (with a more traditional wedding to follow at a later date) but Romy helped us transform it into the most perfect day, one which all our guests agree would be hard to beat! Thank you Romy for giving us this most precious day and a truly Beautiful (& unforgettable) Ceremony!

I will always have fab memories of our little "private" ceremony in the park... outside the cafe, eating ice-creams, and bubbles floating about us.. through to having that amazing personal ceremony back at the house. Having your dad being able to share the day with you.. made it so special. And i'll never forget the impromptu song as you walked downstairs, sung by your entire family & clan. "You're, going to the park and you're, gonna get married.. going to the park and you're, gonna get married!!!"..

I cannot thank Gabrielle and Romy enough for the very heartfelt and beautiful ceremony they orchestrated for our wedding day - it really was delivered from the heart, by the wonderful Gabrielle, who carried all our guests along with her fun and cheerful personality. All our guests were asking after Gabrielle and commenting on how personal and relaxed the ceremony was. The daunting prospect of organising a wedding ceremony seemed like a breeze with Romy on hand for suggestions, to edit and make changes right up to the last minute. I would recommend these ladies for any ceremony or service - I can't wait to work with them again :)))

From the moment we spoke to Romy McAuley we knew we had found the perfect Celebrant for us. She took time to understand us, made suggestions we would never have thought of and created a wonderful ceremony, which on the day was truly amazing. Our guests were engaged and involved in the ceremony, filled full of love and laughter - exactly what we wished for. Everyone said how superb and special it was; for us memories we have forever. Thank you Romy from the bottom of our hearts xx

Romy was the perfect celebrant for us and we can’t imagine our ceremony now with anyone else. From our first telephone conversation, we knew Romy would bring the perfect combination of friendliness, warmth and professionalism to our day. Everything she did was so thorough with lovely little touches such as a pack of memories and records of the day for us to take on honeymoon to read. So many of our guests were commenting on the ceremony and saying it was the best wedding ceremony they had ever been part of. On the day, Romy was amazing, even chipping in to move some chairs when the groomsmen got distracted! She was brilliant with all of the guests, family and our bridal party including our 2 flower girls under 6. During the ceremony, we cried, we laughed and we enjoyed ourselves so much! We would not hesitate for a moment to recommend Romy for this award.

From start to finish Romy was bliss to work with. We decided to get married with only 3 months notice and Romy was able to accommodate us 100%, nonetheless! Romy has really efficient methods for getting to know the couple in order to allow her to able to write a personal ceremony, that truly reflected our personalities and our relationship. On the day itself, she was so organised and she was there well in advance of when she needed to be, popping up to both the bride and grooms room to run us through everything and ease us into the day. We received so much good feedback about our ceremony, with people saying it was one of the best they had been to. Her professionalism, delivery and gentle voice was the pefect combination for our ceremony. We cannot recommend her enough. If only we could do it all over again!

Romy was nothing but amazing from the first Skype call to the day of the ceremony. She really helped us to navigate and decide on what we wanted in our ceremony. She turned our ideas and wishes into pure poetry. There was not a dry eye at the ceremony and it was as if Romy was an old friend reciting our love story. She really takes the time to get to know you as a couple and that's why the ceremonies she performs are so heartfelt. Several guests commented that it was the most beautiful ceremony that they had ever attended and it wasn't just the amazing views of the Cliffs. Romy has a way of tying everything together so beautifully while still staying true to the couple's personality. We cannot thank you enough for giving us our perfect ceremony. Love Jordan and Ryan

We were married recently and we couldn't have asked for a more special and personal ceremony, thanks to Romy. When we met Romy she was so lovely and had great ideas for our ceremony. We were able to create a ceremony that was exactly what we wanted under her guidance.She helped us to incorporate the music we wanted. She was a calming voice of reassurance when we met her and on the day itself. Our guests all commented on how different and special the ceremony was, which was really nice to hear on the day. They were all so impressed by Romy and a particular aspect of our ceremony was commented on by everyone, and that was all her idea too. I think she knows exactly what you are looking for and tailors it from there. We were so happy with our ceremony and Romy's wonderful words that meant so much on the day.

Romy worked with us to deliver a naming ceremony for our twins. We LOVED working with her. Romy met with us initially, to get an understanding of the type of ceremony that we wanted. She then helped us to refine our ceremony over the next few weeks, so that the cermony turned out exactly as we had hoped. The ceremony was delivered at our house and she was utterly professional on the day. Romy is superb to work with and brings her; warmth, kindness and fun to everything she does.

Dealing with Romy was an absolute pleasure from start to finish. She was very accommodating and made the whole experience completely stress free. We planned the ceremony from overseas and had a number of Skype calls to get everything in order. The choice of services offered from A Beautiful Ceremony is outstanding. We could choose from traditions from all manner of cultures and customs. We chose to tie the knot with a handfasting ceremony and got to take home the material used, still bound as it was during the wedding. A fantastic touch we will surely treasure. Cannot recommend highly enough!

Romy married us in December 2017. The most important thing for me is she is a very natural person, easy to talk to and ask advice from. On the day of the wedding she was very calm and professional and that permeated to everyone attending. She also was able to sort and position the wedding party into their places so subtly and went beyond the call of duty to enquire with our venue about a shortage of chairs at our ceremony. So many of our guests told us the ceremony was beautiful, different, enjoyable. Thanks for keeping us calm Romy and thank you for adding so much to our big day.

If you’re looking for a fabulous, well guided, and personalized ceremony then you must absolutely go with A Beautiful Ceremony. My wife and I travelled to Ireland for our wedding ceremony and got married at the Falls Hotel in Ennistymon. About 6 months before the wedding we began searching online for celebrants and talked with many different companies. Some of the companies seemed too Corporate for what we were looking for and others just didn’t seem like the right fit. We found A Beautiful Ceremony and set up a Skype call with Romy. The second we began speaking with Romy we knew we had found our celebrant. She was very personable, warm, and engaging. She was everything we were looking for! The months preceding the ceremony Romy was on point sending us information and documents to help us select the format of the wedding. She provided excellent guidance and was by far our favourite vendor to work with leading up to the big day. A Beautiful Ceremony offers any type of ceremony your looking for and will personalize it to your tastes. We made our selections and sent her our own written vows which Romy had prepared for us the day of. On the day of the wedding we made the decision to go with an outdoor ceremony on the front lawn of the Falls Hotel. There were about 20 friend and family that travelled with us, so it was a nice smaller ceremony. The morning of we were an absolute mess, running to nearby towns to pick up tuxes, the wife hurrying to finish hair and makeup, issues with the sound system, etc. Romy arrived right on time (after a 3-hour drive!) and very patiently prepared us amidst all this chaos! She was a very calming rock during this stressful time and we greatly appreciated it. The ceremony started, and Romy took the reigns with total grace. She made the wedding very personal and special by guiding us through the knot tying, vows, and ring exchange beautifully. Her words were moving, and she did an excellent job keeping everyone engaged. The ceremony was absolutely wonderful, and I don’t believe it could have gone any better! At the closing of the ceremony we signed our documents right there on the lawn and said our goodbyes to Romy as we were headed off to take pictures by the coast. Both my wife and I didn’t want her to leave as she is such a joy to be around! In closing, you just cannot go wrong by choosing A Beautiful Ceremony as your celebrant. They cater to your tastes and guide you through the process, from start to finish, like true professionals. If you go with A Beautiful Ceremony you have nothing to worry about!

We chose Romy from 'A Beautiful Ceremony' to be our celebrant at our wedding. From the moment first contact was made we knew we made the right decision. Romy is so lovely to talk to that our Skype chats went on for hours! She listened to every crazy idea we had, made suggestions and recommendations and went on to create a wedding ceremony that we will never forget. She made the ceremony so very personal it felt like I had known her for years! And I feel now I have made a friend for life. If you are getting married I strongly recommend her because what she delivered was truly a beautiful ceremony.

Being from what would be called a 'mixed' religion couple, we decided to go for a non-religious and a bit more unusual ceremony. We found Romy at a wedding fair. Her joy and smile won us over straight away. Romy even went WAY above and beyond as I had a surprise reading planned from my (now) husbands favourite author. Romy emailed and printed not one, but two versions of the ceremony, to keep the surprise special. She gave us a beautiful moment we will cherish forever. Thank you Romy x

The sky was the limit regarding our options and this was so fantastic. No matter how often I mailed Romy, she always replied with positive feedback, new ideas and suggestions. Most of all was her calmness and direction on our big day. We didn't have to worry about a thing because she had everything organised and under control, even the readings with the BIG print:-) Every part of the cermony was us and thats what we loved. Romy is extremely professional and will make your cermony unforgettable. Thank You Romy

I cant thank Romy enough for all that she helped us with in the weeks and days coming up to our wedding, she was fantastic. On the day itself, she was so incredibly positive, supportive and calm. When we first decided to have a non-denominational wedding, we were totally at sea and quite anxious about how it would all work - we were in safe hands, the ceremony was wonderful. Thanks Romy, you were instrumental in making our day so special
