Aine Brosnan OSUI
Aine was lovely to work with for our wedding. She went out of her way to ensure everything was in order when we had some issues with the paperwork afterwards.
Aine officiated our ceremony in June of 2022. She was fantastic every step of the way. We were able to have a beautiful ceremony but thanks to Aine it felt very personal relaxed and intimate. Her constant reassurance and support meant we were never worried and she was a wonderful calming influence on the day.
Aine was a great asset to us and helped us right through the whole process of our wedding ceremony. Aine told our story to perfection with the way she interpreted into the ceremony everybody laughed and cried in equal amounts. I would have no problem in highly recommending Aine to perform their ceremony.
Áine was amazing in the lead up to our wedding. She produced an incredibly detailed ceremony draft and included everything we asked for. She is a very easy person to talk to and she showed a great understanding of our personalities and the ceremony reflected that. We were delighted with the ceremony and would highly recommend her to any couple.
Aine did a really lovely ceremony for us. She worked closely with us in advance to plan a ceremony that was really personal. She gave us great guidance and we were delighted with how it all came together. Thanks Aine.
Brian and I just wanted to express our gratitude and thanks to you for making our day so special. You have such a relaxed manner we were so at ease throughout the ceremony. It was far beyond our expectations and we enjoyed it so much. Our friends and family said it was the nicest ceremony they were ever at❤
I cannot express my gratitude for the ceremony on Friday. You brought such a sense of reverence and spirituality that is exactly what I wanted. Being brought up Catholic, I struggled for many years with various different aspects of the church. I have since found my own spirituality grounded in Celtic beliefs and Early Christian aspects. I thought it would be extremely difficult to find someone who would be able to conduct the ceremony exactly as I wanted it, but you did it all.
My whole family, who are very spiritual like myself, just felt like it was a beautiful experience.
It was a pleasure to have a woman conduct it, and I just want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for your understanding, your patience and your kindness.
Thank you again!
I hope our paths will cross again in the future,

“Áine put us at ease and delivered a beautiful ceremony with great calm and sensitivity. She encouraged us to do what felt right for us, which was a great comfort.”
Aine, thank you so much on the beautiful ceremony for myself and Richard and our five children. We particularly enjoyed the sand ceremony. It was so special and the children felt so included.
Aine was the celebrant at our wedding on 4 October 2019. Working with Aine was a pleasure from start to finish. We met a few weeks beforehand to discuss details and she was very helpful in sending us ideas, especially ones that involved our three children. Deciding on the format of the final ceremony was effortless as a result, and she was also really helpful in accommodating our musical interludes. On the day itself she made us feel so comfortable and was wonderfully calming and sincere. She generated a delightfully warm aura during the ceremony, which made it a memorable event for all and set the tone for the whole day. Gurbh míle maith agat!
Words can’t express how fortunate Julia and I were to have you perform our ceremony on a day at Slea Head that could not have been more perfect. The time to coordinate everything was very short due to our part. From your first email to the skype call we felt sure you were the right person. Once in Ireland traveling from U.S. you met with us face to face to go over the final plans for the ceremony. You were very understanding to our needs and made us feel comfortable. On the day of our wedding we had forgotten the ribbons at the hotel for the hand tying part of the ceremony. Being that you wanted our day to work out the way it was planned you had a back up set of ribbons for us. Your care to see that we would have a day we could never forget came to be. Thank you so much for all you did to make our day prefect. We will never forget. Le Grá agus Solas, Wesley and Julia
Áine was our celebrant at our wedding in O Donovans hotel in Clonakilty on Sept 6th.She was fantastic. Her easiness and professionalism helped us all relax and enjoy it. She also translated about half of the cermony into Irish for us. She helped us and was completely open to us putting our own style into the occasion. We had a great day and really enjoyed the cermony. Us, Thaddeus and Sam.

When we decided on a spiritual ceremony and started to reserach celebrants, Aine Brosnan was recommend to us on several occasions. We were thrilled to learn she was available for our date and she did not disappoint when we met her in person. She really has the balance of professionalism and endearment.
Aine made herself very available to us from start to finish and guided us in every step to making our cermonry unique, intimate and personal to us.
On the day she unexpectedly went to effort of briefly checking in on us both just before hand and this really did put my nerves at ease and genuinely helped us both to take in and enjoy our ceremony.
Aine we can’t thank you enough for making our unity memorable not only for us but for our family and friends too.
As I mentioned, Aine was recommended to us, thankfully!! And we have absolutely no hesitations in recommending her to others.
Miriam and Kevin,
Aine Brosnan presided of our wedding ceremony in the Gap of Dunloe in July 2019. Coming from the US to marry in Ireland definitely could have been a stressful nightmare, but with Aine’s help it was anything but that. Her contact with us began with Skype calls, we grew a familiarity with each other so that next few months of planning were easy and fun. She was readily available to answer any questions that we had and help guide us through planning the ceremony aspect. Aine was even so kind as to help scout out the perfect location in the Gap of Dunloe for the ceremony, and she was spot on! The location couldn’t have been more beautiful. We were so thrilled with the help she provided and the work she did to ensure we had a memorable wedding, we could never thank her enough!
Áine Brosnan officiated our wedding in September 2019. From the first time we met her she put our mind at ease. She went through all our options with us and let us decide ourselves what we wanted to include/exclude in our wedding ceremony. On the day itself Áine called to me before the ceremony to make sure everything was ok and to settle my nerves. She did a wonderful job, everyone commented how personal and lovely our ceremony was. We got our dream wedding outdoors by the sea…thanks Áine
Thank you so much for marrying us, honestly from the moment we meet you we know you were perfect, so relaxed helpful and a lovely gentle manner.
We loved how the ceremony was delivered you let us be our best , and we will never forgot that, thanks you for making our special day so amazing. I would highly recommend you.

We got married in The Great Southern in Killarney on the 25th of October 2019. Aine Brosnan was our celebrant for the occasion.
Aine met with us during the summer in Kerry to introduce herself and get to hear a little bit about us before she made a start on drafting our ceremony.
Aine made sure our ceremony was just what we wanted – personal and unique to us and working with her guidance we were able to co-write our ceremony with her which made it the “story of us”.
We involved James’ two children by including a sand ceremony and they were delighted to be able to pick their sand colours from a photo of sand colours that Aine had sent to us. This was a lovely thing to include and we have wonderful photos of that part of the ceremony in particular.
Many of our guests had only ever been to Church wedding ceremonies and have since said to us that our ceremony was full of laughter and happiness from start to finish. There were lots of light hearted moments which made everyone smile.
Aine was not just a legal solemniser, she is a genuine celebrant in that she really wanted to celebrate our story as a couple on the occasion of our marriage.
We will be forever grateful to Aine for our beautiful ceremony. She was a pleasure to deal with.
Ciara Burke and James O’Halloran
Hope all is good with you.
Just wanted to say thanks so much for Friday. I loved the ceremony so much. It felt so so special. And a lot of that was down to you. It felt really honest and authentic. I know it wasn’t easy with the midges on every each of our skin! But I wouldn’t change anything.
Thank you, thank you, thank you for being a wonderful part of our celebration.
Love and thanks,
Clare and Rob
