Testimonials

Miriam, we just wanted to say thank you so much for helping to make our big day so special. The time and effort you put into making sure that our ceremony was personal to us and yet included everyone was really appreciated. From the moment we met you to prepare, we knew we could not have chosen better – you managed to combine the dignity of the occasion with just the right sprinkling of humour to keep us sane. Many of our guests said afterwards that they had never been to such a beautiful ceremony. It certainly was everything we could have hoped for and more. Once again a million thanks and the warmest of wishes… Barry & Lorcan

Hi Miriam, Hope you are well. We just wanted to say and massive thank you for our wedding celebration. We truly had the most amazing and happy day. The ceremony was perfect – you really managed to make it personal and include everyone in the room. From the bottom of our hearts thank you!!! We had a great time at home and although there was a little bit of homesickness (on my behalf) on coming back to Melbourne, we are settled again in Australia. We are still riding the high I suppose and it’s a big deal to say ‘my husband’ and ‘my wife’. Take care and hope we see you again in the future for some other celebration! Ciara and Scottie

Hi Miriam. I didn’t get a chance to say goodbye after the ceremony, I was so overwhelmed by it all! You were more than welcome to stay for dinner if you had wanted, sorry I didn’t get a chance to say that to you. I can’t thank you enough for the wonderful ceremony , it was perfect. I was on cloud nine from the moment i arrived, that everything we had practise went out the window! But I enjoyed every minute of it. So many people have complemented us on the ceremony and how lovely you were. Thank you so much for working with us coming up to the wedding day and all the organising you did prior to the wedding and on the day of. All the best. Kind regards Roisin & Conal Higgins

From day one we knew Miriam was the best choice to officiate our ceremony. On our first meeting we clicked with her right away. We felt really comfortable and at ease with her.

She had a genuine interest in what we wanted and made sure that it was personal to us. She spent a lot of time and effort getting to know us and making sure that our ceremony personal and unique.

On the day itself, Miriam could not have been nicer and made every effort to keep us calm and relaxed. Every person commented on ceremony and on how beautiful and personal it was.

A number of our friends and family that attended the ceremony have since used Miriam for their ceremonies as they were so impressed.

We now consider Miriam a friend and would recommend Miriam and Spiritual Ceremonies to everyone!

Laura & Gillian

Hi Miriam,

Thank you for such a wonderful spiritual ceremony.

It was a beautiful day and it added to the experience for us.

You right when you said I wouldn’t be able to let her hand go.

It was quite difficult. J

Thank you so very much.

Hi Miriam,

Just a quick email to say thank you so much for such a beautiful ceremony-all of our family and friends remarked on how personal and special it was-which is exactly what you promised us.
Of course,Charlie stole the show.
We had such a wonderful day but it went by so fast and wish we could have pressed pause at so many times during the day.

Thanks again,

Just a quick note to say thanks very much for all your help with our ceremony. Everyone thought it was a lovely ceremony and they were all particularly impressed with the Sand Ceremony as they had never seen it before! We had a great day. Thanks again.

Fions & Seamus

Hi Miriam, I just wanted to thank you for doing such an amazing job officiating our ceremony last Saturday. It was absolutely perfect! All our guests kept telling us all night how beautiful they thought the ceremony was – most guests saying it was the nicest, most meaningful ceremony they had ever been to. Tomas and I certainly felt that way and it made the day truly special for us. The breaking of the glass was definitely a perfect way to end the ceremony! Thanks again for all your help putting the ceremony together and for everything on the day! Best,Rachel

Rachel

Hi Miriam Hope all is well with you. We are just back from Honeymoon since yesterday and are literally only catching up with ourselves this evening. We were in Thailand for 2 weeks after the wedding and had the best time. It was brilliant just to get away and relax for a few days together after the madness of the last month. The whole things seems like a dream now. We just wanted to to drop you a note to say thank you so so much for making our ceremony so special. The rest of the day was amazing. We were incredibly lucky with the weather and everything went really smoothly, but throughout the whole day everyone kept coming up to us telling us how beautiful they felt the ceremony was and how relaxed you made them all feel. It was perfect Miriam. It could not have gone better as far as we are concerned. You were so helpful and such a pleasure to be with. We really appreciate all your time and hard work. We wish you all the very best with all your future ceremonies and lots of luck, love health and happiness!! Thanks again Sharon and Cillian

Sharon & Cillian

Hi Miriam, I just wanted to drop you a line to thank you for a beautiful ceremony that you conducted on our wedding day. Everyone including Tony and I commented on how personal you made the ceremony for us and how beautiful it was. Many if the guests were never at a ceremony like this and they felt the originality of such a service was unique.Also I personally want to thank you for coming up to see me in my hotel room. You probably don’t realise that you really reassured me that everything was going to be fine, believe me you were the only one that could do that for me that day, there were a few failed attempts previous to your success :-).Once again thank you so much and I do hope we meet again. You are a wonderful person. Jenny and Tony

Jenny & Tony

Miriam Now that the dust has settled and we are getting back to normal after the wedding and honeymoon, we just wanted to say thanks.The ceremony was really lovely, and meant a lot to us. All your work in preparing us in the weeks beforehand, and on that morning, meant that we were both more relaxed during the ceremony. And the tissues were there just in case also…. Lots of our guests commented that you were very good, and that the ceremony was lovely also. So many thanks, you are definitely in the right job. Caroline & Mark. Ps, that fire alarm at the end, was my father calling to say “well done everybody”.

Caroline & Mark

Dear Miriam, Elaine and I would like to thank you both for a wonderful day. Everyone thought that it was really lovely. I hope the new year brings you health and happiness. Best wishes, Sean

Dear Miriam, As we have had a couple of days to reflect I would like to thank you for all your help and input into our marriage ceremony. I have no doubt that we were very lucky that you were available this day. You made it such a comfortable and moving experience for us. A day we will never forget. So many people have spoken of the ceremony and how lovely it was. We are now taking break and looking forward to our future. Your contribution will always be remembered. Best wishes, Geraldine and Predrag

Geraldine & Predrag

Miriam, Myself and Dave wanted to thank you so very much for giving us the most beautiful wedding ceremony we could have hoped for yesterday. From the first time we met you right up until the day itself, your warm spirit, genuine interest in us as individuals and as a couple and true sense of what’s important, helped us shape what was a fantastic ceremony. Although we were a little nervous to say the least, your sense of calm helped to put us at ease and you were the utmost professional. A big thanks to your husband too! We had so many comments about how personal and touching the ceremony was, and how people really enjoyed the experience. We’re only sorry we didn’t get to talk to you longer after the ceremony, the day went by in a blur! We just think you’re a genuinely wonderful person and we wanted to wish you every best wish for the future. Thank you for all that you did for us,Love, Liz and Dave Elliott

Edel & Eamo

Dear Miriam, A huge thank you for making our wedding ceremony so perfect. You were just lovely and made Mårten and me feel so at ease! Your input into the ceremony was so helpful and everybody commented that it was the most personal, heartfelt ceremony they had ever been to. I’m so sorry that I didn’t get to see you after, I thought you might have wondered up to the hotel but I realised that I went to get pictures without saying to you or saying goodbye. We had a truly amazing day and would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for everything you did. I know there was a last minute dash with the archway so thanks for your help with this. I hope you enjoyed the rest of your break with the family and I wish you all the very best for the future. With love Jenny and Mårten x

Maggi & Declan

Hi Miriam, We didn’t get a chance to say thank you properly on Friday! We’d like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts for creating such a wonderful wedding ceremony for us. Our guests absolutely loved how personal and heartfelt it was and said it was the most beautiful wedding ceremony they had ever attended. Seán’s Dad (my new Father-in-Law!) said that he had attended many weddings in the past and felt they were either drawn out or that the priest was simply going through the motions and didn’t seem to care about the importance of the day. But he said that you really seemed to enjoy being there and respected how important everything was to us. He said it was the first time he actually enjoyed a wedding ceremony! (And he’s a hard man to impress!) Words cannot express our gratitude. Thank you again, so very very much! Lisa and Seán xx

Lisa & Seán

Hi Miriam, We are just back from honeymoon and the first thing I wanted to do was send you a message to say thank you. Our ceremony was so beautiful. I will never forget it. It was without a doubt my favourite part of the whole day. I didn’t want to end. Thank you so much for making it so special for us and for putting in the extra time with us to make it so perfect. My family and friends were so impressed they couldn’t believe how personal and perfect it was. My sister cried through the whole thing!! I cannot wait to see the video. I am so honoured you could be a part of our special day. So a big warm thank you from myself and (my husband) ? Andre Olwen xxx

Hi Miriam, It’s been a few months and you’ve probably forgotten us by now but we just wanted to send you a mail to thank you for helping us to celebrate our marriage back in April. You were such an absolute pleasure to deal with. Having never even been to a spiritual ceremony before we really didn’t know what to expect but the way you spoke and put together our comments about each other was just beautiful. So so many people came up to us after the ceremony and said how beautiful, personal and intimate it was. We’ve recommended you personally to loads of people as your personal touch really made a huge difference. Thank you so much!Geraldine & Frankie

Hi Miriam

We just wanted to send you an email to say how happy we with our ceremony 2 weeks ago even though you couldn’t officiate it in the end your husband John Fitzgerald did a great job at stepping in the last minute. It was still everything we hoped for and will always be a special memory for us.

Thanks so much again and we hope you are feeling better now!

Hi Miriam,

Sorry only getting to thank you now. We only got from honeymoon last night.

Thank you so much for your lovely ceremony and for calming Paddy down a small bit ?

We never got a chance to talk to you after the ceremony because we went straight for photos.

Everybody loved the sand ceremony and it is taking pride of place in our sitting room ?

Thanks again from us both.

Caroline & Paddy

Caroline & Paddy

Hi Miriam,

We’d just like to send you a message of thanks for the lovely ceremony you performed for us at Waterford Castle.

We both really enjoyed it and the way you made is so personal to the both of us. Every guest who spoke of it were also really moved by it and commented on how lovely it was. One couple recently married said if they’d have know it was possible to get married that way they would also have done it.

It was so different to any ceremony we’d seen before, everyone loved the two ceremonies, and again how personal you made it.

Thanks for all the preparation you put into it as well, and the help with the Irish for the speech, it went across really well….

Thanks again,

Chris and Tara

Chris & Tara

Hi Miriam,

My apologies for the lateness of this email, I’m only coming down from cloud 9 now! ?

Thank you so much for our beautiful ceremony. It was everything, and more, that we had hoped for. You made both myself and Daryl feel much more relaxed from the moment we saw you. I know my father and the best-man Jay were also very grateful for your presence.

All of our family and friends have been complimenting the ceremony and yourself. They especially loved how you mentioned that our wedding rings were made from the same piece of gold ?

For me, the ceremony is a bit of a blur but I do remember how you took your time doing it and making it feel very personal for us. Thank you.

We would both highly recommend yourself and spiritual ceremonies to anyone.

A massive thank you again for making our special day so perfect.

Take care,
Kindest regards,

Thank you so much for everything.
I was so comforted on the day knowing that you were presiding over our marriage as I’ve come to truly love and respect you and also hold you in the highest esteem.
Ciaran too was equally impressed with every part of your wonderful service and rapport.
I was disappointed not to have seen you later that evening but know you had to slip away at some stage.
I really hope our paths will cross again Miriam.
You were wonderful.
Much love,

Colin and I just want to say a massive thanks to you for Friday. The whole day was amazing. Although most of it went by in a blur for us, one lasting feeling we have is of overwhelming happiness!

Everyone commented to us that day that they loved the ceremony, the personal touches, the relaxed atmosphere and Colin doing the exact opposite of what you had told him to do!!!
It was a first non church wedding for quite a few of our guests and so they really enjoyed aspects like the ring and sand ceremonies.

Once again, we would like to tell you how much we appreciated your calmness, humour and support on the day and for starting us off not only our wedding day but our married life together!

Love and best wishes,

Eimear And Colin Rutter!

Dear Miriam,
David and I just got back from honeymoon and I have to say I thought about you a lot while we were away and my family all commented on how amazing you were at our ceremony. I am so grateful you were there to greet myself, Mum and Caroline when we arrived. I didn’t realise I would suddenly feel so nervous, scared and emotional! Having you there was so comforting and reassuring I thought I was going to fall apart but then you were talking to me and I didn’t – truly Miriam thank-you. The ceremony in our eyes was flawless, so personal, so special and you were absolutely brilliant. Everyone commented on how incredibly intimate, spiritual and romantic it was. You literally made our ceremony the best experience and we loved every minute.

Hi

Myself and my partner would just like to thank Miriam Fitzgerald for a beautiful ceremony on the 28th June in the Delphi Mountain Resort. Our ceremony was done beautifully and was very personal to us! The best thing about Spiritual Ceremonies are that they are to suit the couple rather than any particular religious belief etc….Our guests also never experienced this type of ceremony before and were full of compliments about it,

Hi Miriam,

Just a quick email to thank you for the fantastic ceremony you performed for us on the 2nd August. I don’t know if you remember but we were late getting started (due to my brother forgetting his shirt and tie!) but you were so helpful and calm and put everybody at their ease.
We didn’t even get a chance to thank you afterwards, which I felt bad about as I was seriously stressed beforehand and can’t even remember chatting with you properly. I hope I wasn’t too rude?
Anyway, the ceremony was beautiful – very meaningful and just really nice. Everybody was saying afterwards how they enjoyed it. Even my grandmother (who’s a real traditionalist) said it was beautiful – and she wouldn’t be an easy one to impress! We had a great night afterwards and we’re just back from honeymoon in Germany/Austria, which was fantastic ?
Anyway, we just wanted to express our gratitude. Again, I’m sorry things were so rushed in the end. Aoife and I both thought you were excellent and we’ll certainly recommend you to any prospective wedding couples!
Hope you’re enjoying the nice weather! Thanks again,
Cathal and Aoife.

Dear Miriam,

I just wanted to write and say what a wonderful ceremony you preformed at Maeve & Gerry McManus’s wedding in Adare Manor on the 23rd of July. I thought you were so eloquent and you are brilliant at what you do.

Best wishes to you.

Gerry & Maeve

To whom it concerns
Just to say a huge thank you to Miriam for our beautiful wedding ceremony on 2nd August. It was the first non-Church wedding either of us had attended so we didn’t really know what to expect. But from our first meeting with Miriam, we knew we were in safe hands. She was so warm and friendly from the outset and talked us through every step. She built the ceremony around us and we felt it was very personal and special.
On the day itself, there was a delay of about half an hour as a member of the bridal party was running late. I thought Miriam would be put out, as it threw her schedule off completely, but instead she was incredibly kind, understanding and supportive. We really felt she cared about us – we didn’t feel like clients, we felt like friends.
The ceremony itself was beautiful. Miriam paced it really well and everyone there was impressed – even the elderly members of our families, some of whom are very traditional! If you can win my grandmother over, you’ve done something right!
All in all, we both loved our wedding ceremony and couldn’t recommend Miriam highly enough. If you’re considering a spiritual ceremony (and if Miriam is available) you will be in the best hands possible. A wonderful person and our only regret is that we didn’t get a chance to thank her properly on the day. So, thank you Miriam ?

we can’t thank you enough for making Sunday so special. Your personal brand of awesome is a gift. From the moment we first met you we loved your calm & your chat.

Everyone commented on how you performed the ceremony, how it felt so personal & how it seemed at all moments that we knew you & you knew us.

You absolutely did all we could ask for and more. Your words about my brother Josh, your ease & your direction were all instrumental in making our day.

So so grateful.

Hi Miriam,

I just wanted to pass on our HUGE thanks for Sunday. It was absolutely fantastic.
It was fun and intimate and lighthearted and personal and funny………just what we wanted!!!
Everyone has come to us and said how great the ceremony was, and we are so delighted. There was laughter and a few tears and all smiling faces. As we said we had been at a wedding 3 weeks ago and it was so impersonal and it was in such a stark contrast to ours. You were great at keeping me calm and not too nervous just beforehand too!
We couldnt be happier!
Even some family, who might have rathered a church wedding, were completely turned around with our ceremony.There aren’t many more words to explain how happy we are with Sunday and we just wanted to share this with you!!
Thank you again and again!!

Dear Miriam,
Thank you so much for a beautiful ceremony. A significant number of guests commented afterwards how wonderful you were. Professional, personable and good humoured. We couldn’t have asked for a more Wonderful ceremony – it really was Special and a magnificent start to what ended up being ‘the best wedding ever’ according to most guests. We finished at 5 a.m. 3 hour sing song after dancing.
I would have loved to have more time to chat with you but if you are ever in Navan, there’s always a Welcome.
We are still smiling from ear to ear today, so wonderfully happy and feeling such a wealth of positive energy around us.

Hi Miriam,
You got away yesterday without us saying thank you or even goodbye. Everyone is still talking about the ceremony. You were fantastic and such a dream to work with. So disappointed that we didn’t get to say thank you to you in person for a beautiful ceremony. Honestly, I cannot thank you enough for what you have done for us. You captured our essence with ease. Laughter is at the very heart of our lives and work and this ceremony, created by you, is very personal to us. It is simply beautiful, so thank you.
You are a true treasure. From the bottom of our hearts THANK YOU xxx
Have a fabulous Christmas and may 2016 fulfil all your expectations
Ursula and Philip

Philip & Ursula

Hi Miriam,

We both were sorry we didn’t get to thank you and say goodbye on Thursday, but it was a busy day ?
I had so many people say to me that they really enjoyed the ceremony and my nieces all said that when they get married they want a spiritual ceremony.
You made it very special and everyone thoroughly enjoyed it. It was funny the following morning my very catholic father was having a little rant about ‘sure why would anyone get married in a church after seeing that ceremony’, they were both very impressed.
Thanks again for making our day so special and I hope you have a lovely Christmas,

Dear Spiritual Ceremonies
I am writing to Thank you and to be specific your Officiant Miriam Fitzgerald, most sincerely for creating the most beautiful wedding ceremony for us. It was more than we imagined it could ever be. We just got married two weeks ago and felt it necessary when we got a bit of time to write and Thank you most sincerely.
From the initial engagement with Miriam who put in a lot of effort to capture ‘us’ and personalise our ceremony for us, right to the professionalism & warmth of her delivery on our wedding day, to say, we were impressed would be an ‘understatement’. Several guests also commented on just how personal and professional Miriam was and queried where did we find her? ? So while we cannot stake claim to ‘finding her’ except through finding your Company that provides Spiritual Ceremonies – I can and would have no hesitation in recommending Miriam to any couples looking for a lovely, personalised and professional Officiant and needless to say Spiritual Ceremonies.ie.
Sincerest Best Wishes

Hi Miriam
Would just like to thank you for the absolute wonderful job you did at our ceremony last Friday. It was just perfect and so special. Everyone is full of praise for you and the whole process of the spiritual ceremony. As a result we seemed to have converted a lot of brides to be to the idea of spiritual ceremony. When we get the pictures I will forward some onto you.
Once again thanks so much for helping us create our perfect wedding
Love

The main word I would use to describe Miriam is exceptional! I and my now husband, wanted something a little different to celebrate our marriage and that’s exactly what Miriam did. We contacted Miriam when we were considering a spiritual ceremony and she was happy to speak with us anytime. She gave us a rundown of the layout of a spiritual ceremony and also contacted us a few months before the wedding to meet with us and get to know us as a couple. This really came across to our guests on the day as the ceremony is very much about you as a couple. We had many compliments after the ceremony as a lot of our guests had never attended a spiritual ceremony. Miriam arrived early on the day to talk to our guests that were involved in the ceremony, which greatly put them at ease as to what their roles involved. It added to the flow of the ceremony. Miriam also came out to meet me before the ceremony and gave me a big hug and warmest greeting which really helped dissipate any nerves I had. Thank you, Miriam, for your professionalism but also your kindness….not everyone has such natural beautiful traits X

Genevieve and Robert

Where do I start! From the outset, Miriam made us feel at ease, her aura is just so kind and nurturing that she made us feel so relaxed and comfortable in what was an emotional meeting for me. Her knowledge and experience just shone through, we just knew that we were in good hands. She has a wealth of experience and used this to suggest ideas for the ceremony which worked perfectly, simple things (with big impact), that as a bride or groom, you may just miss. Even on the day, Miriam met up with some of the bridal party to do a run through, so everyone felt confident in what they needed to do. We received so many compliments about the ceremony with our guests saying that it was the most personal ceremony they had been to. I had the best day of my life and wouldn’t have wanted anyone other than Miriam being that special person to marry us! Thank You x

Chanel and Sean

Miriam Now that our wedding is over, we have had a few days to relax and unwind. To get back to feeling “normal” after all the excitement. We are sitting in a cosy hotel room, enjoying a few days together. Just us. The memories of our special day are still fresh, as we remember the amazing weekend we just spent with family and friends. People we haven’t seen for years who we just loved meeting again. Mums and Dads who were nervously excited at the thought of all the family coming together…work friends, colleagues… a great mix of nerves and excitement has washed over us for the past few weeks. Its easy to get lost in the fuss, the stress, the expectations, the expense..! But tonight, as we sit together as husband and wife, there is one thing which we both come back to. The thing that has made a permanent mark. One thing more any other which lifted the whole experience of getting married to a different level…it wasn’t the rubbish weather, not the amazing hotel, not the photographer, nor the band, nor the dresses and suits…it was the marriage ceremony. You rolled all of our love for each other into a perfect wedding ceremony, describing us both better than we thought possible and leaving our family and friends in no doubt as to why we were all there that day. It was because of our love, our special story that was never told before, and will probably never be told again, at least not by anyone but us. We had a wedding day to remember. Family and friends, some of whom were skeptical of what a Spiritual ceremony would entail, were proud, surprised, maybe somewhat apologetic in cases..”the nicest wedding ceremony they had been to”…”thats how it should be”…”how did she know all that?” You get the idea! The day was made by the ceremony you put together. Its how it should be really…Its the reason we were there. Everyone was there to help join us together and commit our lives to each other. To help us on our journey. To celebrate. They were part of our marriage now. You made sure we, and they recognised that. It made our marriage day. It will stay with us as we go forward into our new life together. Lots of love, Gerry and Helena. X

When we first started searching online to see who we wanted to marry us, Spiritual Ceremonies seem to pop up every where and everyone highly recommended you.When we went onto your website and we saw Miriam’s picture and profile we instantly loved what we saw and were we proven right.When we met Miriam for the first time back in December 2018 within minutes we fell in love with her.Her professionalism, manners and her amazing smile lit the room up and we were instantly drawn in by her.The more she chatted to us, the more she got to know what we were really like as a couple.She was very professional in the way she went through the way whole ceremony would happen and what we would have to do on our wedding day.She took time out to really get to know each of us and what we thought of each other.Over the 10 months that followed we were in contact with Miriam over certain things and she was always very prompt in coming back to us.On our Wedding day Miriam’s professionalism and amazing personality really shone through.She made me and my husband feel very comfortable and always had that smile for us when we needed it.During the Ceremony Miriam spoke very clearly and everyone in the ceremony hall loved the ceremony she put together for us and she made it very publicly that it was about us and us only.2 Months after the wedding and people are still talking to us about the ceremony and how personally she made it for us.There is no words that we feel Miriam hasn’t heard or been told before about her ceremony’s in what an amazing job she does, but from us she made it very very special and something that we will never forget.Thanks You Miriam from the bottom of our hearts xxx
