Congratulations! You're about to get married. And you want your weddingday to truly reflect you as individuals and as a couple, starting with yourlegal wedding ceremony.
As it is your wedding day, you want to choose not only the date, but also the day, time and place that suits you. Indoors or outdoors, (almost) anything is possible.
Elegant and traditional or laid-back and quirky; by chosing your own readings and music and writing your vows in your own words, this is all in your own hands. I will then make sure that in the rest of the ceremony your personalities will shine through.
When creating and delivering your ceremony I am working from my personal belief that all people are created equally and are worthy of unconditional love and respect. This means that all my ceremonies are not only created with you in mind, they are also aimed to transcend cultures, gender, age and sexual orientation.
Registered with the HSE as a solemniser, my wedding ceremonies are legally binding.
Thank you for making our ceremony so special. We are truly grateful for all the work you have done in the lead up to our wedding and how relaxed and personal the ceremony turned out to be.

Where do we even begin to start thanking you for the most incredible, warmest and most special of wedding ceremonies on Saturday 9th August. You out-passed any and all hopes we had for our ceremony. It was so moving and so special and so genuine. Ruairi and I felt that every word you spoke was imbued with sincerity and love.
So many of our guests have contacted us to say what a unique and special ceremony it was and that they felt really moved by it.
But you were just wonderful - not alone the words you spoke but how you spoke them. They were perfect and really resonated with us and our lives. In fact, the whole ceremony felt perfectly in tune with us. It was clear you kept us in mind the whole time. Thank you so much.
Eimear and Ruairi
We were delighted with our ceremony and service. Absolutely brilliant and you made not just our day but our journey over the past 12 months. Many of our relations and friends have commented on the quality of the contents and the manner in which you delivered the ceremony. We really had a great time thanks to you.

Marike, thank you so much for providingng the perfect wedding ceremony for myself and Kevin. We loved everything about it and also the way in which Eva was included.
Paula and Kevin
We had a wonderful time in Ireland and the ceremony was exactly like we wanted it. Everything turned out great and everyone is still talking about how perfect the ceremony was. Thanks again for making our day very special.
Marie and Tony Santiago
Our ceremony was short, personal, appropriate and very much as we had requested. We met Marike during the process and felt our wishes were very much incorporated into the ceremony. She worked hard to add a personal touch to the ceremony which was very apparent on the day. It was exactly what we wanted and added to a wonderful experience and occasion. We would be very happy to recommend Marike to any couple wanting a very personal ceremony with just the right amount of formality. Many thanks from both of us.
Anne and Ken
Marike was calm an focussed and helped out on various tasks (how to pin flowers to lapels!) throughout her time with us. Our ceremony was beautiful and magical, with a lightness of touch and an atmosphere of love x.
