Ailish Neville is an Officiant of the Spiritualist Union of Ireland. She is registered as a solemniser with the General Registrars Office. Ailish is also able to perform naming ceremonies and funerals.
Ailish was an absolutely wonderful wedding celebrant from the time of our first communications right through to the finish. She was extremely efficient, courteous and very pleasant to deal with – she made everything easy. Everything was done smoothly and well in advance of time, which greatly reduced any potential stress or worry that is common with weddings. Ailish was also a very warm, genuine, authentic person and celebrant which shone through in our ceremony and which many guests pointed out later in the day and also what a beautiful ceremony it was. Any amendments needed were also no trouble to Ailish. I would highly recommend her to anyone booking their wedding as to sum up she made the process easy, stress-free, but most importantly her genuineness made the ceremony so, so much more meaningful and beautiful.
Ailish was just spectacular. From her first email to us, meeting with her up to the ceremony date she was amazing. She answered all our questions and met with us one to one for well over an hour. We had so much fun at our meeting she really got to know us as a couple and translated that into our ceremony. She listened to what we wanted and came up trumps.
Everyone on the day were complimenting Alish and how relaxed she was.
We have had other couples request her details they were so impressed
Thank you Ailish for everything you did for us. We will never forget the effort and work you put into making our day amazing.
From the moment we met Ailish we knew she was the perfect fit for us. We immediately bonded and felt very relaxed in her company. She guided us through the process in a calm and professional manner offering her expertise where needed. She welcomed all our thoughts and ideas on our perfect ceremony and was always efficient in responding with her script updates. Ailish is a kind, genuine and lovely lady. She played a very big part in our wedding day. We would highly recommend her to other couples who are planning their wedding. Thank you Ailish for for taking part in the beginning of our very special journey. Best wishes, From Sinéad & John Corkery
Simply put, Ailish is WONDERFUL! She communicates regularly but even better, she is open and willing to make your ceremony as special and personal as you would like. Ailish and I went through about 4 drafts of our ceremony. When it was all said and done, we had crafted the perfect ceremony for Franky and me that included vows, remembrances, poems, scripture and a handfasting ceremony. She is so kind, thoughtful and gracious. The weather did not cooperate with us on our wedding day so we had to go to “Plan B” which worked out well. Ailish was flexible and had no problems making the new plan work! If you are looking for someone to conduct your ceremony who invests time, thought and energy into your special day, then definitely consider Ailish.

Ailish is amazing. I cannot recommend her enough. She is kind, caring and a fantastic listener. She has an unbelievable talent of being able to make you feel like you are having a conversation with a close friend and turning that conversation into the most amazing ceremony. Both our families commented on how beautiful the ceremony was. Ailish is so professional and went out of her way to meet with both families before the ceremony and even had words of reassurance for the groom and best man when I was delayed with the photographer. The ceremony was very relaxed and this was down to Ailish, gently guiding everyone through their roles including us.
I loved every second of it and was really able to enjoy the ceremony and day because of the confidence I had in Ailish.
Thank you Ailish for making our day so special.
Ailish was honestly a dream to work with and planning the wedding ceremony with Ailish was probably the easiest part of planning the wedding!
Ailish is an excellent communicator and relayed all the information we needed to know without it being overwhelming or confusing. Ailish was always flexible, responsive and welcoming to our questions, and always very understanding even if we took weeks to reply to an email.
Ailish took the time to get to know us as a couple and helped us figure out what we did and didn’t want in the ceremony. Ailish also made some fantastic suggestions for our ceremoney that we would never have thought of ourselves and fully embraced us having our dog bring up our rings.
Ailish made our wedding day special and many of our friends and family have since complimented Ailish, and the ceremoney, and expressed that they felt like Ailish knew us for years and that the ceremony really felt like it was made for us (which of course it was thanks to Ailish).
Thank you again Ailish for your professionalism and warm on the day and for all the time and work you put into preparing our ceremony script 🙂❤️
On behalf of myself and my husband and our families I would like to thank ailish for not just a wonderful ceremony but for her time, dedication and patience, ailish performed a beautiful ceremony, it was so personal and meaningful to us, ailish also included our 4kids which we admired it added such a beautiful touch 🥰. We have been asked by alot of our guests who attended for ailish name, ailishs ceremony gave the impression she has known us for a long time, she performed so naturally and honestly I cannot express enough of our gratitude for such amazing ceremony it meant so much to us as a family, we are extremely thankful we picked ailish , our hearts were full and for that I could not recommend her enough ❤
Ailish was incredible from start to finish, we were unsure on alot of the proceedings and she was more than happy to run over everything with us prior and made us feel extremely comfortable. She was extremely kind and patient, as with living abroad/having busy schedules we weren’t always very quick to respond to her in regards to some of the ceremony details. This was really just the tip of the iceberg, Ailish comes into her own with her creative writing. We were in complete shock as to how accurately she could summarise nearly 8 years of relationship into her speech from meeting us a few months before. All while adding her own sense of humor and wit throughout. She had our crowd laughing then tearing up then back to laughing. So many of our guests commented on how lovely and unique our ceremony was. It was personal, heart felt and very inclusive for our nearest and dearest. Myself and Gerard can not begin to thank her enough for her contribution to our special day and the memories we will have for a lifetime. Go raibh mile maith agat 🙂
We planned a small intimate wedding with close family and friends and Ailish just added to the ceremony. The ceremony exceeded all my dreams. From first meeting with Ailish she put us at ease and put together a script that captured us perfectly. Ailish was friendly, efficient and great at putting words together – lots of guests commented on how nice the ceremony was. It was a Great start to a Great Day and this was thanks to Ailish.
Ailish was an absolute gem to work with. From our very first meeting right up to after the wedding she was a pleasure to work with. Very professional but more importantly great at putting you at ease. She wrote the most beautiful ceremony. So many wedding guests commented on how friendly she was. Having Ailish as celebrant was the perfect start to our wedding. Such a beautiful and relaxed ceremony. We loved it.
There aren’t enough positive words to describe Ailish and the ceremony of our dreams. We found this lovely lady only a couple of weeks before our big day when our original celebrant didn’t work out. We met Ailish for a coffee and she not only took into account our answers to her questions, but also observed our body language and was able to create the most perfect, personal script and such a beautiful ceremony. Our guests are still complimenting Ailish on such an amazing start to our day (one friend even said our ceremony was much better than his own!) and as a bride I felt every emotion possible. I will never forget Ailish and we are so grateful to have found her. Thank you a million times
Without a doubt Ailish was a pleasure to have as our celebrant. She was friendly, kind and helpful in every way. She did a wonderful job on our script and made the whole process simple yet incredible. We are so grateful to of had Ailish on our special day and would 100% recommend.
We had our wedding 28/10/2022. From the first contact we had with a phone call from Ailish we knew we had made the right decision in choosing her. She kept heart contact with us via email, Nothing was a problem she put my mind at ease.. our ceremony was so unique to us. The room was filled with love and joy it was such an emotional magical ceremony and that was thanks to Ailish. I would highly recommend this kind warm hearted lady to be a part of your very special day as she truly made our ceremony special. We have had so many comments about our ceremony from our guests who have all said they have not been to such an intimate and beautiful ceremony

From our very first communication Ailish was just a pleasure to work with. We were so happy with the advice and guidance that she gave to us along the way.
We were including our kids as part of ceremony and she made them feel so welcome and didnt mind when they got up and moved around the place.
Everything that we wanted to be included in our ceremony was but she added these little extras that made our ceremony so unique to us and our family.
For a lot of our family this was their first time being at a Civil Ceremony and everyone found the ceremony to be a thoroughly enjoyable experience and extremely moving.
As the bride I especially appreciated when Ailish came out and met me before the ceremony, I was very nervous and she gave me a few words of encouragement and that really helped me throughout.
I cant recommend Ailish enough for whatever your ceremony might be, her kindness, patience and wisdom made the whole experience easy and a joy for all present to witness.
Ailish was an invaluable part of our ceremony. She was such a pleasure to work with and made the entire process so easy. It was clear that Ailish truly cared about her work and about making our day special. We felt so confident every step of the way and by the time we actually got to meet (the day of the wedding) it felt like we’d known each other for ages. We received so many compliments on our ceremony and of Ailish especially! Multiple people came up and said how fantastic she was – it was all absolutely perfect. Ailish, we truly cannot thank you or recommend you enough!
Ailish what can I say only “wow”, you went above and beyond for us on our special day and we couldn’t be more grateful. Even suffering with a sore leg you still had the highest standard of professionalism and gave a magical ceremony for us. Everyone was raving about how beautiful and personal the ceremony was.
Thank you so much
Mr and Mrs O Halloran
We couldn’t have been happier with how our wedding day turned out (despite the rain!) it was absolutely perfect! Thank you so much again Ailish for being a part of it and helping us create such a memorable and special ceremony. I’m glad you were able to see and experience Newtown Castle as well, it definitely is a very special place!
Ailish is an amazing marriage celebrant. We were delighted with her professionalism and her kindness. Couldn’t have imagined a better fit for us on our special day.
She listened to all we wanted and gave us so many hints and suggestions. Would wholeheartedly recommend her to any couple for their day:)
Joe and I really enjoyed working with Ailish on the ceremony. She was great to deal with and was very responsive. Nothing was too much trouble in the lead up. Ailish made great suggestions for readings etc. Overall we were really pleased with the ceremony – would 100% recommend.
From start to finish Ailish was the most perfect choice . We felt so lucky that we got Ailish to marry us. the work she puts in to make people’s day special is second to none. Whatever we asked of her she came back to us straight away with an answer and solution. she really took the stress away from all the planning and would recommend her wholeheartedly to anyone. Thanks again Ailish we had the most magical day.

Ailish was a dream to have as our wedding celebrant, June 2022. She was so friendly and organised, helped us at each part of the ceremony script. On the day she brought her calm and friendly presence, very helpful and attentive! It rained half way through our ceremony so we had to dash indoors for part 2. Ailish was flexible and knew what to do in that situation, keeping the group informed and the atmosphere relaxed. Thank you so much Ailish, would highly recommend.
Ailish was our celebrant for our ceremony in June 2022! We found her to be so accommodating, she met us at night due to our differing schedule’s and nothing was too difficult. Ailish posed some questions to us in order to get to know us better which we were very grateful for as we were a bit lost on how to go about it. We were absolutely blown away by how she incorporated them into the ceremony telling a story of our journey together.
Once all the information was gathered and we chose our ceremony items, the speed at which we received our drafted ceremony was amazing! We had so much time to read it and make sure it was exactly what we wanted. Ailish offered invaluable advice along the way and we found her so kind and pleasant to deal with.
We couldn’t recommend Ailish enough!
Ciara and Lauren!
We had Ailish as our celebrant on 27th December 2021 and we just couldn’t recommend her highly enough. We just had the most beautiful perfect ceremony in every way we imagined.It was everything we could have dreamed of and more.
Her attention to detail is second to none and she left no stone unturned in uncovering everything we wanted from the day or even when it came to involving people in our day from our moms/Dads to our two boys and everyone in between!
We couldn’t thank you enough Ailish!!

Ailish made planning our Naming Ceremony for our son so easy to plan! She created a beautiful script for the ceremony that incorporated both his Polish and Irish Heritage!! I knew she was always at the end of an email or phone if I had any queries!!
On the day itself she was there to greet us before the ceremony and let us run through the script and put us at ease!!!! Ailish was so professional and created a relaxed.athmosphere, Even with an energetic toddler 🙂
We would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a celebrant to host their naming ceremony!
Ailish officiated our ceremony at the Cloughjordan House venue in Tipperary. We planned our wedding from the States and Ailish was beyond wonderful to work with! Prior to arriving in Ireland, she was so patient with answering all of our questions via email/video calls. In the weeks leading up to the wedding, we were able to meet with Ailish in person and go over the ceremony script. She really took the time to get to know us and made sure our ceremony was a perfect reflection of our love story. On the day, her relaxed energy was contagious as she gently guided us through the ceremony. It was perfect! Thank you, Ailish!! 🙂
From the minute we met Ailish, we knew we were in safe hands. She is so kind and patient. She worked closely with us to finalise our weddibg script. She offered us advice throughout and always replied promptly to our questions. We are getting so many compliments about our ceremony, our guests loved it and so did we.
Thank you Ailish for helping us to make our day special ????
Having Ailish as our celebrant was a pleasure and joy. She is so easy going.
From the very first call to discuss our wedding she had us laughing and stress free. We got to involve all our five kids with having a sand ceromony.
From the way Ailish spoke about myself and Dave on the day of our wedding it was like she new us our hole lives.
Ailish interacted with our kids, getting to know them and waiting by the window with my 5yr old for my arrival was such a suprise.
Even when our 2 yr old was running around or our 5 yr old not leaving our side, Ailish manged to incorporate the 2 of them into the ceremony with out hesitation.
We honestly could not fault Ailish even if we tried, highly recommend.
Ailish was the celebrant at our wedding on 5/2/22 and she was a pleasure to work with right from the start. She was so warm & friendly and made the whole process so seamless. She advised us with the draft ceremony, what was required & what we would like to include. On the day she guided us through the whole ceremony which was truly lovely & just so easy & relaxed.
Thanks again for a truly wonderful ceremony,
Theresa & Paul
Ailish was the celebrant for our wedding on the 22/10/21. From the outset Ailish was amazing, she heard and took on board all our wishes and presented us with a draft of our ceremony, with so much choice, to ensure it was personal for us and our family, ( including the unusual ring baring tractors )
Our ceremony was better than we could have expected it was amazing. Ailish gave us a calm, personal ceremony with some laughter & a few tears of joy.
All our guests commented on how beautiful and personal the ceremony was.
Thank you Ailish & Spiritual Ceremonies for the fantastic day.
It was the most amazing experience from start to finish. Ailish Neville married my husband and I and I can’t say enough about her. She was truly amazing. I didn’t always respond quickly to her emails and she was patient and understanding. I only had a few months to organise the wedding with Covid etc. I wanted an intimate ceremony with lots of emotion and that’s exactly what I got. The groom forgot the unity candles and flowers and Ailish was so good to have some spare to use for the ceremony. So thank you for such a wonderful experience ❤️ Anne Marie & Andy Sept 2021
We had Ailish as our solemniser for our wedding on 11/09/2021. Ailish was fantastic, she completely personalised our ceremony to us and made sure we were 100% happy with everything before the day. She was such a warm, calming presence on the day, making sure our ceremony went smoothly and that our children were included throughout. We are so glad that we went with Spiritual Ceremonies and had Ailish as our solemniser. Thanks again for everything, it was a fantastic day.
