Ordained in 2003 I am deeply respectful of everybody's unique values and beliefs. I have had a successful practice as a legal wedding celebrant since 2009 and am known for my calmness and support as well as a willingness to explore new ways of creating ceremonies and also ceremonies in other languages.

So far I have conducted ceremonies in Irish, Welsh, Spanish, German, Portugese and Romanian, and French. I particularly love working in other languages for couples who may come from other countries. Formerly a family lawyer, I bring a long experience of working with you to co-create a ceremony which is respectful of your personal beliefs and provide personal support during the (sometimes stressful) period running up to your marriage as in the case of a lockdown wedding celebrated at Dublin Airport in October 2020 - [ Click-For-Link-To-Video ]

A sizeable part of my work as a minister has been with families or couples who have been bereaved and I feel particularly drawn to support all clients who have experienced loss of whatever type.
