Who I am. What I do.
My name is Mary O’Donovan and I am a Professional Independent Wedding and Family Celebrant. I specialise in personal wedding, baby-naming and vow renewal ceremonies. I am an accredited member of the Irish Institute of Celebrants (IIOC) and have had extensive professional training.
My services will appeal to those who wish to have a unique ceremony written specially for them and delivered any time or place they wish!
I am committed to creating and delivering a warm, personal ceremony that reflects the couple’s lives and relationship. I can supply samples and offer help with readings and vows if needed. Your ceremony can include choices from many beautiful enhancements, such as unity candle, sand ceremony, Celtic handfasting and ring warming. You have complete freedom of choice when it comes to venue and content – for example, a wedding anywhere of your choosing, inclusion of spiritual or religious references, etc. – whatever is important to you. I will work with you to craft your own unique love story to share with you and your guests.
I’ve been in the wedding industry for 14 years as a videographer and editor in our family business. This experience has given me a great insight into what couples want and, indeed, don’t want on their day. This insight led me to become a celebrant. I consider it a great honour and privilege to be part of a couple’s wedding day. It is so amazing to be in the presence of such love and absolute joy. I am always so excited to deliver a ceremony that reflects a couple’s love and uniqueness and to help create the perfect atmosphere for a wonderful day which you will remember for the rest of your lives.
