Description

I started working in Event & Wedding planning, co-ordinating, and managing large-scale special events in 1996 - before becoming a Celebrant in 2009.  With over a decade of Celebrancy experience, numerous Awards, I have officiated ceremonies all over Ireland, as well as in Northern Ireland and Internationally.

I give you the chance, guidance, expertise, knowledge and resources to create a beautiful, personalised ceremony.
I very much appreciate having the opportunity to help you with such an important moment in your lives.

I just want couples to have a really loving and beautiful day.  I always say that it is an honor to be there with you - and it really is! I feel very privileged to be asked to be a part of this day.
I can talk until the cows come home and I'm also a bit of a perfectionist... so I really look after my couples!
I've been there and done this too... I know what its like to be standing at the end of the aisle, waiting to walk in and see my beloved - the nerves, the excitement - it's brilliant!

We'll laugh, maybe cry (I have tissues!), and you'll have an AWESOME ceremony!
I look forward to helping you both.  x Romy

      Romy is the perfect celebrant – professional, warm, knowledgable and supportive from the moment we first spoke with her. She made the entire process of planning the ceremony a breeze for us. We were left in awe during the ceremony as we, and our guests, laughed, cried and felt surrounded by love. Romy, thank you for the care and attention that you put into our ceremony. We (and all our guests) loved every aspect of the celebration and we couldn’t have asked for anything more. We will forever cherish the memories that you helped us create. With love, Ruth & Bob

      Romy did such an incredible ceremony for us. She created such a relaxed and comforting environment and we couldn’t have asked for a more perfect, personal or beautiful service. Everyone said how amazing it was and we really felt the love in the room that she created. We would highly recommend Romy and you will not go wrong if you choose her for your ceremony. She was incredible. Thanks again Romy, Jenny and Alan

      I can’t say enough good things about Romy. From the first day we contacted her, she has been great. Always there to answer questions and give advice.

      Our ceremony was absolutely perfect. Better than we could have imagined. It was so personal, special and relaxed – everything we wanted. We laughed and cried a lot. Everyone came up to us afterwards to tell us how great and unique it was. It was just beautiful and it was all thanks to Romy.

      So glad we found Romy to help us on our big day and make things official! She was so lovely to work with before the wedding and always so comprehensive with her responses which made things very easy for us. On the day itself, Romy helped put us at ease and she helped with lots of “little” things we didn’t even expect – she really goes above and beyond! Our guests were all asking about the ceremony after and many of them thought we knew Romy before the wedding as she had created such a personal ceremony for us. I definitely wouldn’t hesitate to recommend A Beautiful Ceremony to anyone looking for a solemniser for their wedding day 🙂

      Romy is the best. We had the most perfect wedding ceremony we could have asked for. Everything was tailored to our own tastes and preferences which just made the day feel extra unique.
      I’ll always be thankful to Romy for the pre-wedding chat we had, without it I might have just been a bag of nerves.
      Romy is so professional, funny and genuinely wants you to have the best day. I can’t recommend her enough.

      We had the best wedding we could have envisioned and Romy at “A Beautiful Ceremony” is to thank for this. Her costs were very low compared to the quality of the experience we were provided with. The ceremony was simple, beautiful and custom-made to our specifications and preferences. Everyone in attendance was in admiration of the tastefulness of the event. While our event was simple, we were given a large choice of options for rituals we could have completed and that many couples would love, and Romy was open to any ideas we had too.

      Moreover, Romy was incredibly pragmatic and helpful from the get-go. From our initial meeting, it was like a course for Weddings 101. We met initially for coffee and communicated by email from there, always receiving quick and detailed replies. No questions were too basic. She is so experienced that anything you may consider or forget to consider has been thought out for you. She was helpful in sending gentle reminders of paperwork deadlines and checklists of all necessary items.

      We can only highly recommend A Beautiful Ceremony for your wedding day.

      Romy from A Beautiful Ceremony provided the perfect ceremony that myself and my husband were looking for. We wanted a tailored, personal, and small ceremony to share with friends and family. From the moment we met Romy she was extremely helpful, supportive, kind and put our wedding nerves at ease with her wisdom. There was no question too big or too small to ask. Romy provided us with a range of ideas for the structure of the ceremony, readings and rituals. Both family and friends commented on how lovely and personal the ceremony was and how they felt Romy’s warm, humorous and professional presence brought it all together. I cannot recommend Romy and A Beautiful Ceremony enough to other couples, she really did put me (the bride) at ease on what turned out to be the best day of my life. Thank you Romy!

      I am so grateful to have found Romy to solemise our wedding! I honestly couldn’t speak highly enough of her. From the moment we met her I knew she would be perfect for us, her bubbly, bright, positive attitude is exactly what you want on the day of your wedding! The ceremony was so magical for us, and honestly, was the highlight of the day and we have Romy to thank for that. She was wonderful in the build up to the wedding too, always available for a zoom chat to help ease our minds (after covid hit) and to help us in any way she could. She really went above and beyond. Five stars!!

Behind the scenes Romy put in so much work, between meeting us twice, rescheduling, advice etc etc! Her online resources to help plan your ceremony are a godsend.

This woman was a rock and a guide to me from day one. She made us feel so at ease. The ceremony was everything we could have asked for. I laughed, I cried and loved every minute of it.

      Romy truly was a god send. Due to the pandemic it was our third attempt at a wedding and a change in the rules, caused us to have changes again before the big day. Romy helped us throughout the process and made sure that our day went off without a hitch. We ended having a very small ceremony. The service was warm and thoughtful and she really made the day special. I would recommend A Beautiful Ceremony and Romy to anybody planning a wedding. Michael and Katie

      Romy, you are so fantastic to work with and we are so grateful for everything you did to help us. Having to change the wedding date 3 times, you were a massive support and nothing was a bother to you. You kept us right with all of the documents and the paperwork and made everything so clear. The ceremony was so personal, it was completely unique to us and that is a total reflection of the time and effort you put into the work that you do. You are so good at your job and you made our wedding ceremony so special. You strike the perfect balance of humour, sentimentality and love. I couldn’t recommend you enough and I know for certain that for any future weddings in our family, that we will be seeing you again. Thank you so much.

      We wanted to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for being our celebrant. The ceremony was everything we wanted it to be – a lovely balance of emotion, warmth and humour. Several guests commented that it was the most emotional ceremony they had ever witnessed while a number of others assumed we had flown you over from Australia – you were just that good! It was also the first (multi-faith) ceremony for a number of our guests and they all loved how personal and touching it was.

      Your joy, warmth and enthusiasm shone through in spades. Keep doing what you’re doing! We haven’t got all our wedding photos yet but here are a couple from the ceremony so far…

      Thank you also for your help and guidance both before and after the wedding. Jen & Ben

Her warmth and sincerity is evident from the very start. Romy has such an attention to detail and makes sure the ceremony runs so smoothly, which is such a relief on the day.

      We cannot emphasise how lovely and personal Romy was able to make our ceremony back in February this year. It was filled with emotion, laughter, joy, inside jokes, readings and even a hint of celtic traditions.
      As two Australians, we had to have a fellow Aussie as part of our day and we are incredibly glad with our decision. Romy was helpful not only on the day of the wedding but also during the lead up.

      Romy married us in May 2018, and she just did the most wonderful job. From the time I first met Romy, to the day itself, she was such a delight to work with. We chatted on the phone for about an hour one day as she gave advice on vows, ring giving words and generally what to think about to align our personalities with our ceremony. On the day itself Romy had such a calming presence and got lots of laughs from the crowd. One cousin (who is already married) asked so many questions about her, where we found her, and commented on how personable her service was. Another family friend said that if she was to get married again, that our ceremony was how she would do it. Romy was so conscious that myself and Paul have some photos at the top of the “alter” and stepped out of the way at the right time during all key moments so the photographers could capture the perfect shot. She was also so nice to hang around for photos after the ceremony, discretely leaving our ribbons and certificate in our room for us at the end. I can’t recommend Romy highly enough, she was the perfect choice for our wedding day. Thank you! Jen & Paul Xx

      We chose Romy to be our celebrant after deciding we wanted a more intimate personal ceremony instead of a church wedding. From the minute we got in contact with Romy she was the nicest warmest person and she helped us with any questions we had from the beginning. Romy helped us to create the most magical wedding ceremony where everything was chosen by us and tailored to suit us as a couple. So many of our guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony was and many had never experienced a ceremony like it. We can’t thank you enough for giving us the most amazing wedding day that we will treasure in our memories forever.

She does everything from helping us pick the rituals we wanted to incorporate, to recommending songs, and even helped us write our own vows. She took the love my wife and I have for each other, our friends and family, and incorporated it into a ceremony and helped make it the best day of our lives. We cannot recommend Romy enough.
