My name is Ruth Healy and I am a registered solemniser with the HSE Ireland and accredited with The Humanist Association of Ireland to preform legal wedding ceremonies in Ireland.

I have worked for the past 20 years as a professional florist in the wedding & events industry and prior to this taught speech & drama and effective communication to both children and adults.

In essence I have been storytelling all of my working life, portraying human emotion through the medium of flowers, theatre and words. Creating a portal through which personal expression can be shared and enjoyed.

A Humanist wedding ceremony is a non religious ceremony crafted in celebration of your love story.

Your ceremony is the beating heart of your wedding day and it is my job to help you design a ceremony that reflects who you are as a couple and portray it in such a way that you and all your loved ones experience the emotional beauty of this new beginning.

In essence a Humanist wedding ceremony is sheer joy.

There may be music and poetry and laughter and nerves, there may be missing rings and excited kids, there may be rain there may be sun there may even be a few tears but amidst all that there will be fun there will be joy and there will be love .

It would simply be a privilege to be a part of it all .

Quality of service

We had so many guests who hadn't witnessed a Humanist ceremony before who really loved it and many more who complimented Ruth on how charismatic, heartfelt and personal herself and the ceremony were, it really set the tone for the whole day going forward.

Ruth was very active in helping us prepare the content for the ceremony and we were able to meet with her a couple of times prior to the wedding to go through what she needed and what to expect. These meetings where very easy to arrange and Ruth was very accommodating.

Ruth Healy is very easy to recommend if you are looking for a Humanist wedding service and I'm sure you will not be disappointed if you choose her for your special day.

Ruth was a pillar of knowledge, support and reassurance throughout our ceremony planning journey. Ruth invested interest, time and kindness into the process and it was an absolute privilege to have her marry us. Ruth's calm demeanor, patience and guidance made the process stress free and enjoyable. On the day of our wedding Ruth held the room in a loving and touching way, with every guest commenting on how beautiful our intimate ceremony was. Thank you Ruth for both your professionalism and generous contribution to our special day, it will never be forgotten.

I am so happy Ruth was our celebrant. Our ceremony was my favourite memory of the day and Ruth was a massive reason why. When we got of our first zoom meeting I instantly knew I did not need to worry or think any more that part of the day because it was in safe hands!!! She took in everything about us as a coupe and put it into beautiful words for us all to enjoy on the day, Co ordinated the musicians , family and us so seamlessly - she is truly gifted in what she does xx

Ruth was an incredible celebrant and we couldn't have wished for a better person. She was so kind to us, so happy and helpful all the way through. I had seen that Ruth had become a celebrant and I knew she was the perfect lady for the job. We had the most beautiful day and she made the ceremony utterly magical. She made it exactly as we wanted it and the allocated time was absolutely perfect. Ruth is a gorgeous person inside and out, highly, highly recommended.

I don't think a short review will do justice to the incredible job Ruth did on our wedding day. The ceremony was without a doubt (and unexpectedly) our favourite part of the whole experience and that was down to Ruth's inspirational words. Ruth set a very relaxed tone making us and all of our guests feel at ease from the start. She delivered a ceremony that was full of humour and was so personal to us as a couple. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, Ruth had the difficult task of getting to know us as a couple. She made this experience so easy through zoom calls and made us feel so relaxed with the whole process. Ruth has the ability to be so professional while also making you feel like you are chatting with a good friend. Ruth was mentioned many times on our wedding day and for weeks after, with people complimenting how personalised, heartfelt and meaninful the whole ceremony was. I cannot recommend Ruth enough.

Ruth was professional in her approach, reliable, punctual, and well-organised. She had an understanding of the legal requirements for a marriage ceremony and was able to handle any necessary paperwork efficiently. We had a beautiful day and the ceremony was perfect thanks to Ruth, it was everything we could have asked for and most importantly it was made easy and plain sailing by Ruth. She delivered a personl, intimate, beautiful ceremony without any stress put on us and was very understanding when we had to cancel first time round, would highly recommend Ruth.

Thank you Ruth for our beautiful ceremony.

We had the pleasure of having Ruth Healy as our wedding celebrant in September.
She took the time to really get to know us prior to the wedding and tailor made the most personal, heartfelt and fun-filled ceremony which absolutely set the tone for the day.
We feel so lucky to have had Ruth play such a big part in our day and I couldn't recomend her more highly.
If you want a ceremony filled with happy tears, laughter and love, Ruth is the celebrant for you.

We feel extremely fortunate and grateful to have had Ruth as our wedding celebrant!
From the moment we asked Ruth to marry us, to the ceremony itself, Ruth guided us through every step with professionalism, efficiency and confidence, whilst maintaining a very relaxed and approachable attitude, Ruth accommodated our needs, taking into consideration that we live in England, providing a super flexible service with zoom calls/meetings and working around our busy schedules!
Despite inevitable emotions and nerves, Ruth helped us both feel at ease. The invaluable piece of advice she gave minutes before the start of our ceremony "smile and enjoy" is evident in our photos! Ruth created the most beautiful atmosphere for our ceremony, incorporating our individual words and chosen enhancements, filling the room with love, laughter and joy! Our family and so many of our guests commented that it was the best ceremony they've ever witnessed! For a truly unique and memorable ceremony, we highly recommend Ruth as your celebrant. Memories we will certainly cherish forever. Thank You!

Ruth really helped make our wedding day even more special. She brought warmth and humour to the occasion and really helped calm my nerves. Everybody thought the ceremony was the highlight of the day.

My journey with Ruth from the first phone call to the closing of our wedding ceremony was by far my favourite. Ruth had us us laughing with her witty humour one minute and crying tears of deep love the next. She wrapped a tender arm around my daughter when she cried during her poem and equally beamed with pride when my eldest sang. It is very easy to get caught up in the surroundings, the aesthetic and the non essentials.. however it?s the feeling created that counts. When you find someone, like Ruth, who aligns herself to that .. grab her !!
