Advantages of a Celebrant-led Wedding

  • There is no legal paperwork on the day.  All the legal paperwork is done in the couples’ local HSE registry office (giving three months notice, bringing the required documentation, and then making another appointment to return after the three months, with their two witnesses to sign the Marriage Registration Form, the registrar will then register the marriage, making it legal).  The couple can get copy of their marriage certificate within a few minutes.
  • Celebrants can officiate at same sex marriages.
  • The wedding celebration can be held almost anywhere, and not just venues that are registered and authorised by the HSE for civil weddings.
  • Celebrant led weddings are very personalised, unique and meaningful. The couples love story is the beating heart of the ceremony.
  • The couple can choose their own music, readings and prose.  I can help with these.
  • The couple can choose their own wedding enhancements which are symbolic rituals that add richness and flavour to their ceremony.
  • There is no need for witnesses.
  • There is no need for guests or they can have as many guests as they wish, the choice is theirs.
  • Couples can choose to include some religious or cultural elements if they wish.  Some couples include the ‘Our Father’ and ask that their parents to lead the guests in prayer.
  • The wedding celebration can be held any day of the week.
