Meet Breda

Hello, my name is Breda Gavagan, and I am based in the heritage town of Athy, Co. Kildare, Ireland.  I am an independent Celebrant accredited by the Irish Institute of Celebrants (IIOC). I can create the ceremony of your dreams that reflects your personality and preferences.

My background is in intellectual disability and general nursing and I worked as a Manager in the Central Remedial Clinic Firhouse for over 23 years, before I took early retirement and trained as a Family Celebrant which is exciting and exhilarating as I get to meet people at one of the most loved up and happiest times of their lives.  I am a modern celebrant, flexible with time and location, imaginative, dependable, creative and a good communicator.

Playing a role in any wedding is exciting, but to be the Celebrant is a huge undertaking and one that I am passionate about.

To create your dream wedding ceremony, the dress is not the only thing that needs to fit – your Celebrant should too.
