Frequently asked questions
Can you marry us legally?
I am delighted to say that I can! I am a member of the Earth Spiritualist Foundation, a beautiful non-denominational group of like minded individuals based in Cork but with members throughout Ireland.
This term refers to the indigenous spirituality and culture of the people and the land.
Our core belief is simple; Kindness to self, others, nature and all living things. This ethos coupled with my own personal mantra; 'Let Love Lead' makes for a beautiful basis for marriage and indeed life.
The HSE in Ireland
When a couple arrange their notification appointment, the HSE will issue them with a Marriage Registration Form (MRF Form). This document is then passed onto me on the day of their ceremony, and myself, the couple and their two witnesses will sign the form. This is the link for more information https://www2.hse.ie
Why shouldn’t I just use a Registry Office?
You could decide to attend a Registry Office with your partner and 2 witnesses and get married legally. However, you need to do it at a date and time prescribed by the office not of your choosing. I can marry you on the date of your choosing and while there are one or two restrictions on the location for a legal wedding you will still have many many options.
Are you a wedding planner?
No but I can direct you to lots of excellent wedding planners. If you are planning to get married in Doolin and want to plan it yourself, I have lots of contacts that I am happy to share with you.
Having said all this I have been known to create a bridal bouquet from my garden, sort out a grooms suit hire when he's on the other side of the world, provide whiskey glasses for the toast, set up and tend to a fire pit...But no I'm not a wedding planner!
Any tips on keeping calm on the day
I have a background in Yoga and Aromatherapy so rest assured I’ll have something to hand to relieve the old nerves! Whether it is the calming aroma of lavender and rose essential oil or simple deep breathing exercises that we do together or simply some soothing words, I will be with you every step of the way. The last thing I want is my clients feeling stressed or worried on the most joyous day of their lives.
