Just wanted to say thank

Just wanted to say thank you so much for giving us the most wonderful ceremony that we could only have dreamed of yesterday. It was a long wait to get to have our day but it was worth it for every second in the end. I don’t think we could have asked for a better person to marry us. From your incredibly calming, reassuring presence to all of your considerations and details it was more than we could have asked for. I have to say I really loved the personal piece at the beginning of the ceremony as it helped relax me a lot with the humour and the fact that I wasn’t aware of what exactly the content was going to be. It’s a really nice touch. So many of our guests were full of compliments for you and so many said it was the nicest ceremony they’ve ever been to. What more could the new Mr and Mrs ask for?😊xx

Carol was absolutely brilliant

Carol was absolutely brilliant to deal with from start to finish. She really took time to get to know us and put together a personal ceremony for us.

Loads of our guests complimented us specifically on the ceremony afterwards and we were thrilled with how it went.

Carol kept in touch with us in the lead up to the wedding day and she was a very calm presence on the morning of the wedding and she took time to speak to us both before the ceremony which we really appreciated.

We couldn’t recommend her highly enough.

On Sunday 11th July we

On Sunday 11th July we got married in Castlemartyr Resort and Carol Cotter was our celebrant.

We can’t say enough good things about Carol – she is nothing short of amazing. From the moment we met her on Zoom, it felt like we’d always known her. She radiated a warmth and kindness that put us so much at ease. After that, we were in regular contact. Carol suggested we set up a WhatsApp group between the 3 of us and it was the best idea. Carol was always available to answer our many questions no matter when we text or called her. She listened and guided us every step of the way to make our ceremony so special and personal to us.

We have a 2.5 year daughter, Mollie. The way Carol included her in to the ceremony is something we’ll never forget. As with all toddlers, they don’t perform on queue! Mollie stole the show, but while we were panicking inside and anticipating her next move, Carol kept things so relaxed and calm. She was an absolute natural. The ceremony was delivered beautifully. It was everything we wished for and more.

Like us, our family were blown away by Carol. She was the topic of conversation for several days after.

We could not recommend Carol more. She is an absolutely beautiful soul, a true professional and was made to do the job she does. If we could change one thing it would be that Carol could’ve stayed with us for the whole day!

We wish we could do it all again Carol.

Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

Much love,

Fiona, Cathal & Mollie xxx

We were delighted to have

We were delighted to have Carol marry us at the weekend. From our initial contact with Carol she has been a pleasure to deal with and made the whole process very easy. Any query we had she replied to us very quickly.
The ceremony itself was amazing, it was so personal and emotional Carol made us feel at ease and she is so well spoken there wasn’t a dry eye in the room.
I couldn’t recommend Carol more she will make your wedding day so so special.

Myself and my new husband Gary had the pleasure of having Carol Cotter as our celebrant on Friday 2nd July last. Carol was fantastic and made us both instantly relaxed. Carol made the ceremony very personable and we really enjoyed it . Both our families commented how lovely Carol was and how intimate and wonderful the ceremony was. Highly recommend Carol and any couple would be lucky to have her.

We couldn’t recommend Carol highly

We couldn’t recommend Carol highly enough. From our first phone call (due to Covid) Carol put us both at ease. She explained everything so clearly, went through every aspect of the ceremony, giving us all the information but letting us ultimately decide on what we wanted for the day. She also provided great support to us, calling us to check in, meeting us both just before the ceremony, which really helped calm nerves!

During the ceremony Carol put everyone at ease. It was the perfect mix of formal but relaxed. We all laughed. She delivered the ceremony beautifully and kept everyone engaged. Also, including our son in the unity candle part was one of the most special moments for us, and We are so thankful that Carol suggested it.

We honestly couldn’t recommend Carol enough. Thank you for helping us make our day so special.

After booking Garryvoe Hotel and

After booking Garryvoe Hotel and a local east Cork church for 130 plus guests covid hit. We had already rebooked and changed dates before the dreaded corona virus hit and we genuinely thought we’d be OK. We decided if we had to cut numbers a civil ceremony might be nicer (still hoping for the 100 guests) we were put in touch with Carol through spiritual ceremonies. After speaking with nearly 7/8 different celebrants from different companies and backgrounds I knew Carol was for us, and that was only after a phone conversation.

Everything she had in mind was exactly what we wanted but we couldn’t put it into words.
From the vows to the remembrance candle to helping us to include our daughter she really thought of every detail. Her communication and response to any query we had was imminent.
Carol rang me the week of, incase I had any last minute issues or changes and kept in constant contact.

On the morning of, she had a chat with my now husband and really put him at ease she then called up to me in the suite and it was so lovely to have a one on one with her as she really was the most important part of our day.
Nothing was a problem and everything was so relaxed. I can honestly say she is amazing at what she does. A true sweetheart. The way she spoke about our relationship was very touching. Even though we only had 6 guests it was all i could have asked for and more.
Everyone complimented on how beautiful the ceremony was. I wouldn’t have changed a single thing. Thank you Carol.

Hi Carol. Me and steve

Hi Carol. Me and steve just want to thank you again for yesterday. You were amazing and you are such a lovely person. After meeting you yesterday we think we actually met you before at a wedding fair in kinsale and we think you had told us then about the sand ceremony we hadn’t heard about it before and we thought it was amazing and we remember thinking at the time of the wedding fair about how much of a beautiful person you were so it really worked out amazing that you were part of our day. Also we hope we are right that that was you but we think it was anyway ?? We can never thank you enough for making our ceremony so perfect and at such short notice also. Thank you so so much xxx❤️❤️❤️

Carol was absolutely amazing!! We

Carol was absolutely amazing!! We knew she was the perfect celebrant for us the moment we met her. She is so friendly, warm and down to earth! Carol checked in on us so many times in the lead up to our big day, making the uncertainty around covid restrictions so less stressful! She put the most beautiful, personalised ceremony together for us and had everyone saying how beautiful it was, and how lovely she was at the end. We honestly couldn’t have asked for more! We loved our day and would recommend Carol and Spiritual ceremonies in a heart beat! ❤

Couldnt have been happier

Here’s our review from myself and Brian 💕 we honestly couldn’t have been happier so thank you again.

My husband Brain and I count ourselves extremely lucky to have been assigned Carol to officiate our wedding.
We had only ever been to one spiritual ceremony and weren’t exactly sure what was involved. We both just knew we wanted something personal to us and seeing as we aren’t particularly religious it seemed like the best fit for us. We couldn’t have been more right!

From the very start of our planning in Australia Carol was preparing us and giving us all the different ceremony options. We even had a chat over the phone to get to know each other before we moved back home a few months before the big day.
Unfortunately we were one of many couples that had to postpone due to covid but Carol couldn’t have been any more supportive and her positivity about going ahead with our big day with six guests really put our mind at ease.

We never got to meet Carol before our wedding but because of her constant checking in on WhatsApp and Zoom we felt so relaxed and she made everything so easy.

The ceremony was absolutely perfect, better than we could have ever imagined.
It was so personal to us and she added an amazing piece about us that had us all laughing and crying. Carol is so down to earth and made the whole experience and day fun and enjoyable.

Thank you again

Carol, We just wanted to

Carol, We just wanted to say thank you so much for everything on our wedding day and in the lead up to it. Everyone loved you on the day, they all commented on how friendly and welcoming you were and I think there wasn’t a single person you didn’t introduce yourself to before the ceremony making everyone at ease from the start. You made us feel so relaxed throughout the ceremony and we really couldn’t have asked for a better celebrant.
Thank you so much for everything,

So lets set the scene,

So lets set the scene, booked the wedding early in 2020, thinking normality would be restored by the time Jan 2021 came around, basically a pandemic wedding and getting married the second time round for both of us and being clueless!

You’d think scary times to plan a wedding but not with our solemiser Carol Cotter! This lady is fantastic. We are living in Limerick but for family reasons, married in Cork. We met Carol when restrictions were lifted a few months before out big day, no idea what to expect. Carol put us both at ease. She’s probably the nicest and most professional person you could ever meet.

She was always an email away, and when I panicked, she was a friend reassuring me, that everything would work out. She was 100% right. Even when I thought I’d have to change my wedding day, she was on board and so accommodating and nothing was too much!

This woman will give you the personal touch to your big day and for that I thank her. Lots of answered emails and phone calls, above and beyond. The ceremony, thanks to Carol, had some funny aspects in it which calmed us down as we were a bit shaky. It was just a beautiful ceremony. I thought second time round would be a bit robotic but Carol made our wedding ceremony, romantic, intimate and all about us and our family, which made it out of this world special

I met Carol the morning of my wedding and she gave me some great advice, initially I was surprised but she gave the hotel staff strict instructions and voila…. you’ll have to book her to get that advice…sorry but well worth it❤❤❤

Thank you Carol for being our rock during such a tough time. I would say I’ll definitely book you again but probably not the best thing to say at this But in all honestly, thank you so much. We genuinely hope we somehow cross paths with you again in the future.

All our love, Mr & Mrs Hayes”

Spiritual Ceremonies and in particular

Spiritual Ceremonies and in particular Carol Cotter ( our Celebrant )come with a very strong recommendation from us. We want to let you know how much we appreciated her contribution to our Wedding last Thursday. She had a professional and caring approach to the planning and the execution of our beautiful ceremony. We were put at ease at all times, and words fail to express how much we enjoyed it all. Our families and friends loved sharing our special day with us. It surpassed our wildest expectations.
Thank you Carol.

Carol, you made our day

Carol, you made our day amazing with your attention to detail and calming presence. The very sight of you before the ceremony instantly calmed my nerves. How you managed to tailor a ceremony that completely reflected our personalities with only one meeting, ( due to circumstances unforeseen ) is beyond us. There was not a dry eye in the room all guests fully enjoyed the ceremony of course we had some laughter too. We cannot find the appropriate words to convey how grateful we were to have you as our celebrant so we will just say thank you from the bottom of our hearts and hope you know how much we mean it!

Carol would make any one feel calm and relaxed which is exactly what you need on your wedding day.

You are a beautiful woman Carol & we will always be grateful that we had you as our Celebrant. Thank you for everything ❤

We could not have been

We could not have been happier with how our wedding ceremony went, and the majority of that was down to Carol. She made it so personal and was so professional and friendly from the first moment we made contact. We have had so many compliments on how beautiful our ceremony it was – people asked how long we’d known Carol (as they thought she was a personal friend!) Thank you so much, Carol, for making our day so special x

Carol was an absolute pleasure

Carol was an absolute pleasure to work with through the entire process of planning and executing our wedding this December. Not only did she take the time to meet with us and answer our questions in person before the big day but was also extremely responsive with questions leading up to the wedding. We had some anxiety with getting married abroad (we are from the U.S.) and Carol checked on things to make sure everything was legal and easy for us. Finally, we would like to say that she made the ceremony itself very special. She took fun stories from each of us and wove those into ceremony and even have a beautiful reading piece that she shared about marriage. It was absolutely perfect and we were so pleased with our experience!

Please put this review on

Please put this review on Carol Cotters profile as she is a beautiful kind lady)

I would like to thank Carol Cotter for our beautiful wedding ceremony, It was magical in every way and Carol performed a beautiful and calm atmosphere
for us throughout the whole journey, We are both quiet nervous and shy and we wanted a calm and relaxing environment, Our wedding party was intimate with very close friends and family. Carol connected with us both and her intuition and perception of what we wanted and needed was immediate.She guided us through the ceremony and suggested ideas which would help create a simple but effective and beautiful blessing. Her calm and gentle approach helped us both as we were both very nervous with tears and laughter too.

Thank you Carol , everyone at the blessing said you were wonderful and performed a beautiful ceremony and atmosphere, You should marry everyone! xx

Carol Cotter we cannot thank

Carol Cotter we cannot thank you enough .We met Carol in a hotel in Youghal in April to discuss our ceremony. From that moment we met we knew it was going to be amazing. The morning of our wedding Carol popped up to my room to settle my nerves,it was like I had know her all my life.The ceremony itself was breathtaking. We had tears and laughter and most of all we had all the people who we love under one roof . For many of our guests ,it was their first Spiritual wedding and the amount of comments regarding their love of the ceremony was unbelievable and only highlighted what we thought ourselves. Thank you for making our dreams come true.
