Testimonials

"Kerrigan and I want to sincerely thank you for being a part of our very special vow renewal ceremony.  We took a blind leap of faith when we reached out to you the very first time and since Day 1, you have been attentive, patient, understanding, a great communicator (the list can go on!).  You were honestly a blessing to a very special day for us.  Both you and Niall will forever be a part of our lives and many, many years from now, we hope to tell our children about you and this very special moment we had, celebrating our wedding anniversary in Ireland.

I hope you continue being a Celebrant (and drummer!) for many more years to come because I know you will be a blessing to many future couples." 

Jennifer & Kerrigan,  Drimnagh Castle, September 2017





Kevin & Edesio: Testimonial

While we searched online for a celebrant and were therefore concerned that the service would be impersonal, it was anything but.  The service from the beginning was very professional but engaging and the celebrant, Tim, was superb.  He showed the human/personal touch required on such an intimate occasion.  He has an easy going/humorous personality and made us feel very much at ease on the day itself.  Many of the guests remarked afterwards how they had enjoyed the ceremony and how Tim had handled it.  I would highly recommend this service based on our experience.
