Nicola Hayes OSUI
Nicola Hayes in Waterford was our celebrant and she was amazing. All our guests were blown away by the ceremony. They said that it was the most warm and intimate wedding that they have ever been at and this was down to Nicola. She did her research and made it feel relaxed and the words she spoke about us were so relevant and it was like she knew us. We cannot recommend Nicola and the whole spiritual ceremony enough. Thank you for making our day perfect x
Most beautiful ceremony ever! We were blessed to have Nicola Hayes as our celebrant. Nicola made us feel so relaxed coming up to and on our wedding day. Although we only met once over video call before our big day she really got a sense of who we are as a couple and everyone commented on the day that she must have known us for years the way she spoke about us. Nicola was always quick to reply on email and there was no question or change to our ceremony plan too big or small; even in the days leading up to the wedding we had a few changes and Nicola had no problem with anything. Over all it was such a relaxing ceremony full of love and laughter and we have Nicola to thank for this.

Thrilled and so thankful for our celebrant, Nicola Hayes. My husband and I reside in the US and got married in Ireland.
We went through Spiritual Ceremonies where we met Nicola. From the first meeting she felt like a long-time friend.
She was knowledgeable about the process – even for an International couple – she was confident, kind, funny and just an all-around joy to talk to.
She supported us every single step of the way, made herself available to answer questions, and even sent along a few checklists to ensure we arrived with everything required.
That was just the pre-work! Nicola shined at the ceremony – her leadership is second to none.
Not only that, but she was personable, kind, and had a way of keeping us (the bride and groom) calm.
So many friends and family raved about Nicola following the ceremony for her personal anecdotes on my husband and I, for her delivery, and ability to seamlessly fit in with an intimate group of 45 near and dear family and friends.
She made our ceremony so special and we will forever be grateful for her. We couldn’t have dreamed of a more perfect ceremony that was so finely in-tune with us. We will sing Nicola’s praises to anyone who will listen. Look no farther – she’s your celebrant.
Cannot recommend her or Spiritual Ceremonies enough.
Thank you so so much for everything. We had the most amazing day. Everyone was commenting on how beautiful and personal the ceremony was.

We are absolutely over the moon after all the celebrations!
Our guests were raving about the ceremony and how beautifully personal it was, everyone thought you must have known us well!
Thank you Nicola so much for helping us make the day unforgettable.
Wishing you all the best

Nicola Hayes, our celebrant created the perfect ceremony for us. It was tailored to fit our relationship, personalities and experiences. From the time we met Nicola at a wedding fair in 2019 to when she left our venue last week she was kind, caring, professional and interested.
We literally can’t put into words how much we would recommend this style of ceremony and also Nicola to deliver it. It was nothing short of magic.
There aren’t any words to say how amazing you were yesterday.. it was the most perfect ceremony and your ears should have been burning for the eve from the amount of compliments you got from our guests!
It’s been one hell of a ride and we can not thank you enough for making our day so special, we will always be grateful for having you!
Thank you so much for the day Nicola.
Everyone loved the ceremony and that was all down to you!
You made both of us feel so at ease and thank you for that!
From the moment we contacted Nicola, we were put at ease. Any query or question, she was always at the end of an email. We had no experience of spiritual ceremonies and she explained it all to us. Her words and reflection on marraige was beautiful. The service was so personal and customized to exactly what we wanted. So many of our guests had never been to non-church wedding and so were unaware of what to expect. Almost everyone mentioned how beautiful and personal and relaxed the ceremony was. Nicola made the experience so effortless and enjoyable and we wouldn’t change a thing! It was perfect.
Thank you so much to Nicola Hayes who recently helped us celebrate our two children with a beautiful Naming Ceremony. Nicola was so helpful with all the planning and understood exactly how meaningful the day was to us. It was a beautiful ceremony, enjoyed by our family. Thank you so much to Spiritual Ceremonies.
Thank you so much for everything the ceremony was beautiful and we are so lucky we got an amazing celebrant to be part of our special day

Our celebrant, Nicola, made our wedding ceremony so special. Her warm, calming personality was very welcome on the day!
From our initial correspondence, zoom meetings and days leading up to the ceremony, Nicola was so helpful and knowledgeable, and nothing was too much trouble.
We would highly recommend Nicola to couples for a beautiful ceremony you or your guests wont forget.
We can’t recommend Nicola Hayes highly enough! She makes you feel comfortable and relaxed for something that can be so stressful. She is very helpful and professional. Thanks to Nicola our wedding ceremony went perfect from start to finish. With Nicola by your side no doubt every effort will be made to make your day as perfect as ours was.
We had Nicola Hayes as our celebrant. She was great. Made the ceremony so special in such a difficult time with only 6 guests allowed. We are so happy with how the ceremony went. 5 stars, would highly recommend!!
Nicola was such an amazing celebrant and person to have around us on the lead up and on our wedding day on 16 Oct 2020. She guided us through all the ceremony planning and made it effortless and was such a calming presence (which we badly needed with all the uncertainty and restrictions!). Her words and delivery of the ceremony was really special and all our families commented on how beautiful and personal the ceremony was. .Thanks again Nicola
Nicola created a beautiful personal ceremony for our wedding in December. Given the uncertainty of everything in the current times and not knowing if our wedding was going ahead until the week before, Nicola couldn’t have been more helpful and flexible. The ceremony created by Nicola with us was perfect, being involved in the ceremony made it very meaningful and made us feel very special. Thank you so much Nicola, you made our wedding day very memorable!
Nicola was our celebrant for our Wedding on Friday 20th November in Dooleys Hotel, Waterford. After cancellations, tears and lots of uncertainty. I can honestly say – it turned out to be the BEST day of our lives. We are forever grateful to Nicola for creating the most beautiful ceremony and organizing the day so amazingly. Every member of our families commented on what a wonderful ceremony was and how nice the atmosphere was. Thank you, Thank you, Thank you Nicola for all you did for us! Alex & Micheal x
Nicola what can we say, everything was absolutley perfect. The ceremony was exactly what we wanted so very personal. To have our kids involved was amazing. We have had so many compliments from our guests and in these uncertain times we will be forever grateful to you for amazing words and ensuring we enjoyed every minute of our special day.
Nicola what can I say! Saturday was amazing! Thank you so much, the ceremony was so lovely and we’ve had so many compliments from our guests in relation to it. Even the owner of the venue was in the background and he said it’s one of the best he’s ever seen there. It was so lovely and personal and exactly what we wanted. It all went by in too much of a blur but was also so lovely to have a day of normality in this crazy time. Thank you again for everything.
Joanne & Shane

Friendly & professional at the same time Nicola made sure we were at ease and went over and above to help integrate all the elements we wanted into our day. Nicola was on hand for any questions and queries we had through the whole process. The ceremony itself was simple and relaxed – which was exactly what we wanted. We really could not recommend Nicola highly enough!
Nicola celebrated our marriage on the 14.02.20.. It was absolutely perfect..The ceremony was just beautiful and went without a hitch.. Very easy going but also very thoughtful..Thank you for making our day so special Nicola!

Such a massive Thank you to Nicola for everything she did to make our wedding so special. You did an amazing job and everybody was hugely complimentary of the ceremony and how personal it felt. I really felt that you put us at ease on the day. You made the ceremony feel intimate and allowed us time to enjoy it throughout. Thanks so much for everything. I hope several more couples are lucky enough to have you officiate their marriage.
I could not recommend Nicola highly enough. She officiated our Wedding in Kilkenny recently and guided us through the whole ceremony (including managing my 7 nieces & nephews!). So many guests commented on her professionalism & the atmosphere she created for our special day. Thank you so so much Nicola – you made our day truly special.
