About Edel O'Connell

Hello I’m Edel . . .

. . . Not everyone gets the chance to work at something they truly love … but I do!! Several years ago, I attended my nephews civil wedding and I was literally blown away.

I had wanted to change careers for some time and lets just say this was my moment of inspiration !

Since then I have trained as a wedding celebrant and at present I am an Interfaith Minister in Training and as of Aug 2019 I will be on the Hse Register of Solemnisers.
This means I can Legally Solemnise marriages in Ireland.

I love getting to know you, your personalities, your hopes and dreams for the future and together creating a truly fantastic occasion.

Having been mother of the bride for my two daughters, I know just how much work goes into planning a wedding.

But when it comes to planning your ceremony, well, that’s where I join you to guide and advise, helping you to make the choices and decisions needed to create a ceremony that reflects you, a ceremony that is personal to you.

I believe that your ceremony should be filled with love and laughter, and be a day you can look back on with fond memories.

Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. It should be incredibly special, meaningful and memorable.

Every couple’s relationship is unique and your wedding ceremony should reflect your relationship in all its aspects.

Choosing an independent celebrant to host your ceremony ensures you have a wedding ceremony that is as individual as you are; a ceremony that reflects your personalities and the love you share.

Without the constraints of church or registry office, you have the freedom to choose a venue for your wedding ceremony that is special to you.

It might be a beautiful location that you love to visit, a windswept beach, castle or historic public building.

Using a wedding celebrant means that you are not bound by tradition and you are free to let your imagination inspire you. Your Order of Service can be as secular or as spiritual as you wish.

I really enjoy the experience of working together with a couple and seeing their Wedding Ceremony evolve. Poems and readings are suggested, music is chosen, vows are written and gradually their dreams take shape.

The joy and excitement you feel on starting married life together is captured and shared with all your family and friends. I am happy to include any special elements or family traditions .

So, now that you know a little about me, I hope you feel more at ease reaching out and sharing details about you and your big day plans.

I'd love to hear from you!
