​Our ceremonies bridge the gap between church and civil or humanist wedding services and can be spiritual in nature if you require but not aligned with any particular religion.

We have no agenda with regard to your ceremony, it can be as spiritual, secular or atheist as you choose, using whatever language, music and readings you choose.  

We also have no requirement to speak about any parent organisation during your ceremony. We have taken a vow of inclusivity and we welcome diversity of gender, orientation, colour, nationality, ability, culture or any other reason- within the bounds of Irish law.

Because we are authorised to carry out ceremonies for couples of all faiths and none we are listed on the HSE Register of Solemnisers as religious Solemnisers, as opposed to secular.  This classification has absolutely no bearing on the content of your ceremony.

Our focus is on inclusivity of all and we welcome diversity of gender, orientation, colour, nationality, ability, culture, faith .
