Spiritual Ceremonies - Dan Collins

Average Rating: 5.0 stars (based on 13 ratings)

Dan Collins is an Officiant of the Spiritualist Union of Ireland. He is registered as a solemniser with the General Registrars Office in the Republic of Ireland.

We need more than 5 stars or words to describe how fantatsic our celebrant on the day was. Dan Collins was absolutely amazing. From our intial meeting right through to the big day, Dan really took the time to get to know us as a couple (and our families) and to listen to what we wanted during our ceremony. He was so well prepared for the ceremony and made everyone feel at ease on the day by allowing us to take time to soak things in but also prompting us about what we had to do next to help settle the nerves. He had such an amazing calming, warm and friendly presence. We never felt rushed or that any element of the ceremony was copied and pasted. Our guests have made many comments on how amazing Dan was and how it was the best ceremony they had ever attended! Thank you Dan and Spirtual Ceremonies for creating such a special ceremony filled with love, joy, meaning and lifelong memories for us!

Dan was great, he worked very closely with us in the weeks leading up to our wedding. As we were living in another country, he really did put our minds at ease regarding what to expect on the day. He listened to us speak about what we wanted and spoke about us throughout the ceremony as if he had known us for many years.

Many of our guests mentioned to us in the days after, of how relatable Dan was and we are truly grateful that he shared such an important part of our day with us.

We are so delighted that we chose Spiritual Ceremonies for our wedding day.

Myself and my husband got married in April 2022 and we had the best time. The celebrant we had was Dan Collins. He was absolutely amazing. From the first time we spoke I just knew he was going to be great. He couldn’t have done more for us leading up to the wedding. He made us feel at ease the whole time and the ceremony was fab, all down to Dan. People were talking about him for the night saying how nice he was. I would definitely recommend Dan for anyone. If I could give him more than 5 star rating I would. 😁

We got married on 23rd July 2022 in Springfort Hall, Mallow.

Dan Collins was our celebrant for our Spiritualist Ceremony. There aren’t enough words to express our gratitude towards Dan. He is genuinely one of the nicest, kindest people you could meet. From our first meeting to the day of our wedding he was always so helpful, professional & nothing was too much bother for him. He was very supportive and guided us and made the whole process feel easy. He created a ceremony that was everything we could have wanted.

On the day he was so enthusiastic, energetic, positive and he has such beautiful energy. Everyone commented on how beautiful the ceremony was and how lovely he was. He made our day so special and we could never thank him enough. He is a true gift to anyone who is lucky enough to have him as part of their ceremony. Thank you. Lorraine & Michael Dwyer.

Dan was extremely accommodating from the first day. He made everything so easy. We wanted a small quirky wedding and he helped make it better than I could have ever imagined. His attention to detail and ability to make every little part special went above and beyond. We will be forever grateful.

Our story is a long story , due to covid, siblings abroad etc it took us a while to find the most perfect wedding date and venue. When I got in touch with Dan, I knew he was exactly the person we wanted to do our ceremony. Dan is incredibly calm, relaxed and has a great sense of humour. His ability to put us at ease, giving us guidance and being a kind soul made our wedding day so incredibly special. He is honestly one of the most genuine, caring and fun people you could meet. Our ceremony was filled with meaning, love,joy and done in such a relaxed manner. Our two children with us, Dan absolutely went above and beyond for us. We are very grateful for Dan,his time and patience. I could not recommend Dan more highly.

Thank you so much Dan for working with us to create the ceremony that we knew we wanted. You guided us with such ease through all the preparations and advised on how best to integrate into our ceremony elements such as our own vows, the Celtic hand-fastening tradition amongst other things.
You were such a pleasure to deal with and you were never too busy to get back to any of our questions despite the time difference working with us in New Zealand. You really put our minds at ease when you met with us at the venue to talk us through how the ceremony would go on the day.
You guided us all through the ceremony itself with such ease that we felt so relaxed and we loved the light sense of humor you brought to it.
Our guests complemented us afterwards as to how lovely the ceremony was. We are so thankful Dan that we chose you as our celebrant and thanks for being there with us on our special day!

I will never have enough words to thank Dan! What a truly amazing ceremony! All my guests both on the wedding day and still weeks later are still gushing about the beautiful ceremony and the sentiment and light heartedness that Dan brought. Its not very often that your guests will speak so highly of your ceremony and celebrant but I knew from the day we spoke to Dan and met him afterwards in person that he would be really liked by my guests and most of all myself and Chris my now husband. Dan from the bottom of our hearts a million thanks for your warmth, honesty and gentleness that you brought to our big day but most of all for your genuine spirit that shines from you.
With all our Blessings on your life’s travels and adventures. .
Warmest regards

From our first contact with Dan months before our wedding we just new we were in great hands. Dan was always on the other end of the phone for any queries and always happy to help. When it comes to our ceremony there aren’t enough words to describe how amazing of a man Dan really is. Both myself and my husband were quite nervous and Dan was so calming reassuring and took his time with everyhthing helping us along the way. The ceremony he put together was so much more than a ceremony for us, we felt as if we knew him all our lives as he guided us into our marriage. He was so patient with our 3 kids and looking back at our wedding pictures Dan always had a smile on his face. Our families and guests had the highest of praise for him. We will forever be grateful to have had Dan as our celebrant and have already recommended him to a number of friends. 10/10 from us

We were blessed to have the amazing Dan Collins as our celebrant for our recent wedding, on April 8th 2022. Where do we start? When we first met with Dan Collins, we were so taken back by how much time he took in getting to know us both, how we met and the journey we had both taken.

With all this Dan was able to put to words and talk so personally and confidently about our journey in front of our family and friends at the ceremony on our wedding day, which was delivered so naturally and beautifully. The ceremony itself was incredible, there were little to no nerves on all sides due to Dans calming and guiding nature. He was truly spectacular.

Everyone at the wedding spoke so highly of Dan Collins and how he kept everyone smiling and laughing throughout the ceremony whilst equally delivering the official aspects of a wedding.
A balance that can be hard to find, but you’ll find it all and more with Dan Collins.

An absolute credit to his profession, and to Spiritual Ceremonies Ireland.

Thank you so much Dan,
