Average Rating: 5.0 stars (based on 126 ratings)

Tara Carroll is an Officiant of the Spiritualist Union of Ireland. She is registered as a solemniser with the General Registrars Office in the Republic of Ireland.

Tara was amazing! From first contact right through to the ceremony, she perfectly balanced the right amounts of both professionalism and also making it personal. Tara was flexible, encouraging, listened well and we very much appreciated her organised nature. We felt we were in safe hands with Tara, and she was able to dissipate any nerves on the day with her relaxed and good spirited demeanour. She accommodating the unexpected with a loose dog, provided marvellous additions including knot tieing, sand pouring, and Irish blessings, was good craic when it was called for, whilst also remaining somber and serious for the truly beautiful & emotional parts.

We couldn’t recommend Tara enough, anybody who would have her for their wedding day would be lucky. Whole hearted thanks from us of both for contributing to making our wedding day so special and really running a tight ship while also providing the magic to our ceremony.

Mark & Helen

Tara Carroll married myself and my husband on the 02-09-22 and the ceremony was perfect. It was exactly what we wanted, fun, relaxed and captured us both so well as a couple. We had so many lovely compliments about the ceremony after. Tara was excellent, from the first emails, to our first meeting, to planning the ceremony, she made us both feel so comfortable and like we could be ourselves. (We are both fairly awkward people with things like that so this was really a great relief for us both) She has a great sense of humour and very calm and professional on the day, its all ran so smoothly and we both really loved how the ceremony went. Thanks again Tara for everything, kind regards Laura and Keith xxx

Laura and Keith

Tara is outstanding. She is attentive and professional. She spoke to us about all the options for the ceremony in great detail to help make our ceremony exactly what we wanted. She is a true perfectionist with a laid back charm. We spoke to Tara on the phone and she really took the time to listen to how we wanted the ceremony and brought great ideas of her own which were brilliant and in tone of the wedding we wanted.

Tara actually married Marie and I twice (lols) once in September 2020 in Dublin during the hight of Covid and again in August 2022 in Belleek Castle in Mayo. She was so lovely during Covid lockdowns always keeping in touch with a positive reassurance of better days.

Since our wedding so many Family and Friends have contacted us to say how much they enjoyed the ceremony. That it was a lovely mix of love and humour. We have Tara to thank for that, she commanded the room and delivered such a personal ceremony, truly perfect. She is really one of a kind.

Lynn and Marie Fenton Dunne

Tara, what can we say?! Thank you so much for a wonderful ceremony. You put us both at ease the moment we first spoke with you. You were absolutely fenominal on the day.

Our ceremony was so personal and exactly what we wanted.

A special thank you for putting the kids at ease and including them in our ceremony. This was so important to us and you really helped when our three year old twins became hesitant during the sand ceremony. Without you, we could have been in trouble!

If you are thinking of booking Tara for your celebration, do not hesitate! We could never recommend her enough or thank her enough for making our day so special.

Until our paths cross again, huge love.

Chris & Gill

Tara was extremely person centred from the initial meeting advising us of options for our ceremony and putting us at ease. Tara designed and delivered a ceremony that was personal to us and inclusive of our families and friends. Tara was always at the end of a phone, email and met us in person to get to know us as a couple. It was our pleasure to have Tara be such a big part of our special day and all our guests commented on how great Tara was. We would highly recommend Tara to any couple looking to go the route of a spiritual ceremony. Tara was simply amazing

Shannon & Angel

Tara was amazing and everything we wanted in a celebrant. She captured our story perfectly and made the ceremony so personal.
She made us both so relaxed and everyone couldn’t say enough about the ceremony on the day.
Thank you again Tara for making our perfect day come together!

Matt & Anne-Marie

From our very first email with Tara she has being nothing short of fantastic. She works really hard to make your ceremony true to your story. When we did get to meet face to face she was really interested in finding out all about our story, which is lovely as this is how she is then able to go away and come back with something that is unique to your wedding. Tara really does make you feel relaxed, and if you are nervous she see’s that and helps you. All our guests at the ceremony were so enamored by her presence and how she made the ceremony an expression of our love. Which is what we wanted people to feel when they sat through our ceremony. We really couldn’t have asked for better on the day. Tara is brilliant and booking her for a ceremony, you certainly won’t be disappointed!

Tara is just AMAZING. I was so worried about our first meeting but within a minute of meeting her, I knew she was perfect for our special day and would just make it all flow with ease. She sat with us for about an hour after that and had a normal chat about our lives together and then sent us through a draft of the most beautifully worded, perfectly fitting ceremony. She listened and picked up on so much fabulous details of our lives that we never would have thought to include in our ceremony. I cried many happy tears reading the draft and didn’t change a thing. She nailed it all. She made our ceremony so perfect for us. It was everything and more that we could have ever wished for. All our guests complimented how fabulous, personal and unique it was. It was the most chill fabulous day of our lives. We love her so much we’ve asked her to do a second ceremony in a few years when we’ll get to celebrate with all our family and friends, as we just wanted to get the legal part done this year.

Claire and Ronan McDonnell

Cannot even put into words how incredible our Ceremony was this July ! Tara was fantastic and all our guests commented on how amazing and personal it was. Tara encapsulated our story so perfectly after only meeting us once and delivered it as if she had known us forever. Her bouncy, fun energy is a delight to work with and I really trusted her advise while putting the ceremony together we wasn’t one bit worried as she was there on the phone if we needed help with anything. I would 100% recommend Tara for your big day or any day! We all need abit of Tara in our lives.

Daisy & lee

I cannot recommend Tara highly enough as a wedding celebrant. In the lead up to the wedding no question or change was an issue and our emails were replied to promptly with a suggestion or resolution. So many of our guests commented on how special the ceremony was, it was totally personal and tailored to us and reflected our relationship perfectly. Tara came to the bridal party room before the ceremony and totally put us at ease , we were really able to soak up every moment and enjoy the ceremony.
Thanks again Tara
Dani and Chris

Dani and Chris

Tara was absolutely amazing from start to finish. She was in regular contact in the months leading up to the wedding and made us feel incredibly at ease throughout the planning process. We first meet with Tara a couple of months before our big day and we could not have been happier with how engaging and accommodating she was to our hopes for our ceremony. As we have three kids we really wanted to ensure they were as involved as much as possible in the ceremony and Tara made sure we achieved this. The ceremony was just fabulous and Tara did so much to make it very personal and unique to our family. We could not have asked for better, it was the highlight of the whole day and all of our guests raved that it was the most beautiful, emotional ceremony they have ever attended.

Thank you so much for making our day everything we hoped for and more!

Siobhan and Jimmy

We had our special day on the 26th of May 2022 at Lough Rynn Castle. They highly recommended Tara Carroll as a celebrant for our ceremony, and we are so grateful they did! We first met Tara over zoom and even through the screen we could feel her energy. She made our ceremony incredibly personal, emotional (there wasn’t a dry eye in the house!) and fun! If you are looking for a celebrant that will make your ceremony unique, special and full of joy, look no further, book in Tara!

Anthony & Noelle

We honestly cannot say enough about Tara. She is a breath of fresh air and set the tone for the whole day. In meetings with her before the wedding her calm approach was intoxicating and so reassuring, we knew we were in very good hands. She was genuinely interested in us and our story. On the morning of the wedding Tara spent time with both of us, exuding her relaxing and calming vibes. We have been married a month now, and guests are still talking about the ceremony. All of our guests, young and old, were so touched by how personal it was. When Tara spoke she was speaking directly to myself and Liam, it felt like we were the only ones in the Chapel. Like she was our good friend, imparting wisdom on how to be married. It was more beautiful than we could have even hoped for. Everyone was just filled with love and there was not a dry eye in the house. Tara was such a huge part of our day and we are eternally grateful for how special she made it.
Thank you so much Tara!!!
Love Siobhán and Liam

Siobhán and Liam

Tara, what can we say!

The ceremony you performed at our wedding in Redcastle Hotel Donegal in June was just perfect and exactly how we had envisioned our ceremony to be.

We wanted our celebrant to be someone who brought a relaxed approach to our day, who understood us as a couple and someone our friends and family could enjoy listening to and you were all these and so much more!

The countless emails, video calls and communication back and forth until our big day completely set us at rest, the ceremony you wrote for us was perfect and the way you spoke on the day was confident, calm and captured all the right emotions.

Thank you again for everything
Clare & Cory xx

Clare & Cory

Tara is an amazing celebrant! We couldn’t have asked for a better ceremony – it was our favourite part of the day. We met Tara a few months before our wedding day to go through what kind of ceremony we both wanted and told her a bit about ourselves and how we met, our lives together and the proposal. We knew we were in good hands and she knew exactly what we wanted. Tara wrote such a beautiful and personal introduction about us. We couldn’t have written it better ourselves, it’s like she knew us more than we knew ourselves haha. We are so grateful to have met such a wonderful, down to earth person to marry us.

Kate & Conor

Tara has a great personal and professional blend that we wanted in a celebrant . She took time to get to know us, brought us through each step in preparing for the big day , gave us great advice and above all put us at ease throughout the process until the big day. Our guests also complimented the celebrant saying that she was very personable and professional. Thank you again for making our day so special. Shaun & Morgan

Shaun and Morgan

We met Tara a few months prior to our wedding in June 2022 and we sat and chatted with her to go through our wedding plans and to chat to her about us as a couple. We told her our story and how we were hoping for a relaxed/intimate vibe on the day and Tara definitely ticked all the boxes.

She made our day so special with the ceremony she put together for us. All of our guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony was.

We can’t thank her enough, she was always just a phone call or a message away and was professional in every way.

Thanks so much Tara!

Rachel and Dara

Tara was absolutely amazing in the lead up to the wedding and on the day. Tara spent time getting to know both me and Nick before the wedding so that she could ensure that the ceremony was really personal to us. The ceremony was so perfect and special to us because of Tara, we feel so grateful that we had Tara there with us on the day to celebrate with us. The majority of our guests commented on how the ceremony and how gorgeous they thought it was. I would 1000% recommend Tara.

Mary & Nick

Tara married us this May and we cannot thank her enough. We met her to tell her all about us prior to our wedding and the ceremony she gave on the day was just amazing and so personal to myself and Stephen and included our beautiful family in every detail. There wasn’t a dry eye on the day.
We couldn’t recommend Tara enough. Her relaxed attitude, attention to detail and execution of a beautiful well written ceremony.
Thanks Tara

Marie and Stephen Wykes

Tara’s relaxed approach made us feel comfortable not only throughout the ceremony but also in all the planning leading up to the big day.
She created a lovely atmosphere throughout the wedding ceremony and for that we will be forever grateful.

Along with creating our perfect day, the most common comment we got from out guest was ” that’s the way to get married, she was class!”

Theresa and Mike

Tara was professional, organised and lovely to deal with. We are both thankful to Tara for holding such a gorgeous ceremony. It was actually our favourite part of the whole day and I wish I could go back and savour it again and not be so nervous!! Tara definately but us both at ease on the day and we felt very relaxed. All the guests commented that Tara was excellent and were very impressed with the efficiency, flow and relaxed atmosphere that she helped to create! Tara was also very patient and flexible with last minute requests to tweak some aspects of the ceremony. She was very understanding and patient. We really appreciate all she did for us. I would recommend Tara to any couple organising their wedding – you will be in good hands.

Kelly & Chris

Tara is amazing at what she does!
From the moment we first spoke with Tara to the day of the wedding , she was a constant calming presence in the lead up to our day. We planned our wedding from Australia and Tara was always there to answer any questions we had no matter how big or small they were.
All of our guests commented on how lovely and intimate the ceremony was, many had not been to a civil ceremony before and nearly 4 weeks after the wedding, people are still talking so highly of it. Tara made sure to speak with both the bride and groom before the wedding and settled any nerves we had. She also guided guests doing readings in the ceremony excellently so the whole thing ran so smoothly. I could not not speak more highly of Tara – thank you for being part of our special day!

John and Lisa

Tara was a pleasure to deal with from the beginning. She kept things light-hearted during the ceremony and was very accommodating to our specific requests. I would happily recommend her to any engaged couple!

Erin and Keith

We could not recommend Tara highly enough! She made the whole process from start to finish so easy. We are based abroad so it was great to know she had so much experience with ceremonies and could guide us through it. All of our friends and family are still raving about her. Everyone loved her! Our ceremony went so smoothly and we did not have to worry about a thing. Thank you very much Tara!

Anthony & Fiona

Tara was fantastic to deal with throughout the whole of our wedding planning process. From the moment we first spoke to her, she was friendly, helpful, knowledgeable and funny, and we knew straight away we were making the right decision booking her as our celebrant. She was always quick to respond to any questions we had, and always a pleasure to talk to. She made our ceremony so personal and beautiful, and even now, weeks later, people are still saying it was the nicest wedding they’ve ever been to, and are complimenting Tara on how brilliant she was. Thank you Tara, you really are the best!!

Caroline and Keith

Myself and Barry had our wedding day in February with Tara Carroll.
Prior to the wedding day we spoke with Tara, we shared with Tara some of our stories throughout the years. Tara shared these stories throughout the ceremony creating such a personal atmosphere.
All of our guests commented on how unique and intimate the ceremony was.
We added in a naming ceremony for our baby and this was no issue for Tara. Tara combined the naming ceremony and wedding ceremony in such a beautiful way. We would highly recommend Tara to any couple looking to make their day that little bit more special.

Sarah and Barry

Incredibly attentive!
Due to Covid we had to move our wedding twice. Tara was there every step of the way, keeping in constant contact while thoroughly personalising our ceremony to suit us. It seemed as if she knew us better than we knew ourselves by the way she spoke at the venue. She comes with an absolutely incredible attention to detail and is quick with words and wit, making the family and friends in the crowd comfortable while effortlessly directing a perfect ceremony. Would recommend highly to anyone and everyone!

Gary & Róisín

Tara was probably one of the best choices we made for our wedding. She is so professional, nice to speak to, funny and compassionate. Our service was personal to us and so very special, she had a loving, funny and special service. With personal touches just for us. We will forever remember Tara when we think of our wedding day and how her service really did bond us together forever.

Amanda & Robert Walsh

What can we say… firstly spiritual Ireland were amazing with the prompt service and ease of booking online, thus made our first step so easy.

We got married in August 2021, but had come across Tara at another ceremony about two years previous. When we eventually made our decision to marry, we knew Tara was who we wanted to give the Cermony. Her attention to detail, her support and relaxed personality was what really made our planning so special and stress free. Our big day went like a dream, and every stage of the Cermony she made us both feel relaxed which made it all the more enjoyable, knowing Tara had it all under control.
I suppose all we can really say is, thank you Tara from the both of us.

Siobhan & Alan

We had the pleasure of having Tara officiate at our wedding ceremony in Dec 2022. From our first phone conversation to the follow up zoom meeting and emails, she completely put us at ease and it was like talking to a friend.

Tara is extremely professional and so efficient and grasped everything I had explained I would like included in our ceremony and also had lots of great suggestions and advice that we could avail of if we wished. From readings to including our two children. She took all the stress out of the ceremony which meant we could just enjoy it all the more. We couldn’t recommend Tara highly enough, you will be in very safe hands so enjoy.

From the first time we rang Tara she was making our day special along with our little girl
She made our ceremony ours and everyone who attending loved how special it was
Tara went above and beyond for us
We are so grateful

Donna &kevin

Tara was absolutely incredible, she wrote us the most beautiful ceremony that we will never forget.
So professional and organised and we did not have a single stress in the lead up or on the day. She created a lovely relaxed atmosphere.
Thank you so much Tara!!

Kelly and Steve

Tara Carroll was amazing from start to finish. At our first meeting she made us feel completely at ease over coffee and found out all about us and our vision for the ceremony. She was always available any time we had a question or query. The ceremony tailored exactly to how we wanted it. Tara was incredibly accommodating to my shy niece who wanted to run through her hand binding ceremony role a few times prior to the ceremony, her rapport with kids was excellent and she made them all feel so incredibly welcome and part of the ceremony with no pressure. The ceremony was brilliant, it was incredibly personal and Tara’s ability to make it so stood out. Many many guests commented on how good and personal the ceremony was and a few commented that they wished they hadn’t done religious ceremonies.

Thanks so so much for making our special day so special.

From our initial contact/meeting with Tara, we knew we were in safe hands and were so excited to be working with her. Tara is so unbelievably professional and cool at what she does.

Our wedding ceremony was so beautiful and we will be forever grateful to Tara for the role she played in facilitating such a special service.

We have two small children and it meant so much to us to have our children involved. Tara whom recommended numerous different ways to involve our children, and carried them so effortlessly on the day. Highly recommend the sand ceremony to anyone with small children.

We felt so lucky and blessed to have had Tara look after us. The ceremony was beautiful, so many guests commented on how lovely it was, for many it was their first time attending a civil ceremony and they were completely blown away by how special it was. Some guests even commented on how they would love to go and get married again after being at the ceremony.

Tara helped make our day so very special and we will be forever grateful, xx

Kieran & Claire Coen

From the very first moment we met Tara we knew that was who we wanted to marry us, and what an amazing job she done. She got to know us so well it was like she knew us all our lives and our ceremony reflected that it was everything and more that we could have asked for.
She made both of us feel so at ease on the day. Our guest spoke about the ceremony afterwards and how beautiful and intimate it was.
We couldn’t recommend Tara enough and any couple would be lucky to have her marry them.

Barbara and Wayne

Tara is incredibly professional, dedicated and just insanely brilliant at her job – we could not recommend her highly enough!!!

We got married in September 2021 and as any other Covid couple will know – the wedding preparation was a bit more stressful than usual. However one element that was not stressful was our ceremony as Tara was just incredible!!! We arranged our wedding from London and I had never been to a non-religious wedding before but Tara explained the whole administrative process to us.

Ahead of the big day we had a Zoom call with Tara where we went through our whole relationship, engagement and personalities. We had such a great chat and I felt like she really got to know us. From that call she prepared the most perfect ceremony- we honestly would not have changed one single second!

So many of our guests told us that the ceremony was the most special and personal ceremony they had ever attended and they spoke so highly of Tara who just kept the whole thing so relaxed. We got married outside and when none of our candles would light with the wind – Tara just had the whole crowd laughing as we pretended to light something!

Thank you for making our day so special!!!

All the best, Rachael & Oli

Rachael & Oli

We hit the jackpot when we found Tara for our wedding on the 3rd July 2021. From the first point of contact to the big day, Tara was amazing to deal with. We instantly felt at home with her and felt as if we had known her all our lives. Unfortunately due to covid we never got to meet in person before the wedding itself, but we did manage a video call where we had a great laugh and an enjoyable chat with her. She really took the time and effort to get to know us, our story and our personalities. She made the whole process very stress free and easy for us and was always so quick to reply to any questions we had. The ceremony was just perfect – it was very special and unique to our story and we could not have wrote it better ourselves. Our family and friends all spoke highly of Tara and how relaxed and fun the ceremony was yet the professionalism was top notch. We cannot recommend Tara enough!!
Gillian & Dónal

Gillian & Dónal

We were so lucky to have been assigned the gorgeous Tara!
Words cannot convey how amazing Tara is From the moment we met with Tara we knew we’re going to love the ceremony !
Tara broke everything down for us and made us feel so relaxed- literally within weeks after meeting Tara we received our draft! None of us could believe how true to life and beautiful the draft was! We had no changes to make.

Tara was so quick to answer any email we had . On the day she made Alan feel so relaxed and came out to meet me before I walked done the aisle and made me feel so calm.

Everyone commented about the ceremony to us which I never expected! Tara is the most warm genuine and professional person.. could not recommend her enough to any couple!

Alan&Fiona

Making the best day even better! Anne and I had contacted Spiritual Ceremonies in early 2021 as we did not want a church wedding, instead a ceremony that had meaning for us as a couple. From the first call with Tara, she was a mine of information and good advice. As our wedding day got closer and through a number of emails and a meeting, Tara helped us hone our mad ideas into a cohesive plan for our ceremony. Close to the event, Tara provided us with a lovely order of proceedings that brought all of our elements together. This was no easy task as we had quite a few items not commonly found at a wedding ceremony.

On the morning of our wedding, I arrived at the ‘Tin Chapel’, and to my relief, Tara had already set up and was calm with everything I had for the morning. Tara delivered everything she said she would and more on the day as our celebrant—a simple mix of managing the guests while also making a pleasant experience for those getting married. Our ceremony will last in our memory as one of our nicest moments. I’m hugely grateful for coming across Spiritual Ceremonies online and picking Tara, who we could not recommend more. Aside from Tara being our celebrant, it was so lovely to be introduced to a person who is so kind and warm.

Andrew and Anne

Tara was a joy to work with. Very professional, efficient and thorough. She was always on hand to help answer questions or to guide us through our ceremony, there was never any pressure. She was a friendly face to see on the morning of the wedding and had everything sorted and ready to go. Thanks Tara for being such a special part of our day. You really helped facilitate our ideal wedding ceremony as that was very important to us.

Sinéad & Colm

We would love to reccomend Tara for any couples with their wedding coming up , trust me when I say you will not get better than her . We had our day 15/08/21. From the first moment we spoke with her we found her so easy going , full of ideas and an absolute pleasure to deal with .. I could have stayed chatting with her about everything and anything she felt like a friend to us . Everyone said our ceremony was amazing and so heartfelt and that they loved how when Tara spoke about us they could feel she had gotten to know us as a couple which was extra special . We would highly reccomend Tara if I could give her 50million stars I would . Thank u so much again Tara love ciara & cormac xx

Ciara and Cormac

Couldn’t recommend Tara enough. She was so helpful all the through right from the first phone call. She designed a ceremony that was so unique to us. She took the time to get to know us and added this extra detail that made it more personal and special to us.
Tara was so friendly and easy to chat to.
Everyone at the ceremony commented on how lovely it was . How Tara was very professional but yet kept the whole thing relaxed and intimate at the same time. She put our nerves at easy.l from the beginning.
It was such a pleasure working with her.

Sinead & Aidan

No words can describe how amazing and wonderful Tara has been since the first day I made contact with her. She made the planning of everything for our ceremony so easy going and fun and stress free. Our ceremony was to perfection thanks to Tara with her natural talking ways and making everyone feel so comfortable but also everyone felt so included. It’s was such a intimate, fun and special ceremony to our perfect day and I can’t thank her enough for everything she did .

Kaoife & Liam

We were married by Tara in October 2021. Having postponed our date twice due to COVID 19 we built a long relationship with Tara. She was so understanding with all the date changes. As for our ceremony Tara done a fantastic job on the day. She had our guests in stitches and had myself and David down to a tee. We had so so many compliments about our ceremony and how fantastic a job Tara done. Some of our guests had never been to a wedding with a celebrant before and said it was the best they had been to. We highly recommend Tara and spiritual ceremonies for your big day. She really didn’t disappoint we just wish we could do it again. Thanks so much Tara ❤️

Caroline and David

How lucky were we to have Tara as our Celebrant?! We searched for a celebrant online and due to covid we knew it was going to be hard, then we found Tara. We spoke on the phone with her for well over an hour and once we came off the phone we knew she was the one. Our wedding day 23/10/21 was the first we met and she greeted us both with hugs, it was like we knew each other for years. She made our ceremony what it was so personal, funny and unique. Our guests afterwards told us it was the best ceremony they’ve ever been too and Tara was just fantastic!
We couldn’t recommend Tara enough and in 10 years will probably renew our vows just so she can do it all over again 🙂 we can’t thank her enough for making our ceremony the highlight of the day.

Kathryn and Chris

Tara was our celebrant last Saturday 30.10.21. She provided the most beautiful ceremony. It was absolutely perfect. All our friends and family could not speak highly enough of it , with many saying how moved they were which is a testament to Tara. It was so personal and relaxed which is exactly what we wanted. She provided memories we will treasure forever. Thank you.

Tommy and Geri

Tommy and Geri

We had the pleasure of having Tara as our celebrant on Friday 17th September this year. And what can we say, there aren’t enough words to describe just how brilliant she was!! From our very 1st phonecall, we spoke for almost an hour. We laughed and chatted for so long, it felt like by the end of the call that we were saying goodbye to a great friend. She was so warm, bubbly and so very friendly. Tara did everything we asked of her and more! Nothing was a problem for her. She made our day so very special, unique, intimate and personal. And all of our guests who would have never attended a spiritual ceremony before were full of compliments for both Tara and the ceremony. She made us feel at ease as soon as we got to the top of the aisle, and guided us through it with such professionalism and grace. We highly HIGHLY recommend Tara to any couple looking to book a celebrant for their special day. You will not be disappointed!! Just brilliant! And to boot, we have made a new friend. Thanks so much again Tara. Lorna & Orla xx

Lorna & Orla

Tricia + Ed

Tara was our celebrant for our wedding on Saturday last, 21st August. Our ceremony turned out to be even better than we thought it was going to be, and we have to thank Tara for making it so personal and lighthearted. We had nothing to worry about as Tara looked after us so well. All our friends and family thoroughly enjoyed themselves and they all thought it was such a special ceremony. We would have no hesitation in recommending Tara for anybody’s special day.

Kelly & Stephen

We were lucky to have Tara as our wedding celebrant/solemniser in June. Like many other couples we had to change our wedding plans several times due to the pandemic but luckily nothing about planning the ceremony was stressful thanks to Tara. She sent us readings she thought might suit our weddding and was flexible and helpful in all communications. On the day itself, Tara was calm, friendly and reassuring. It has been lovely to hear our guests speaking about how unique and personal the ceremony felt since then. We wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Tara to any couple planning a wedding.

Louise & Daniel

The initial phonecall with Tara put us instantly at ease. Emailing afterwards to work out all the details was easy and without any fuss. The ceremony was everything and more we could have asked for and we included our son’s naming day which fit into the ceremony beautifully. Thank you Tara for leading the start of a wonderful and memorable day.

Shane & Saoirse

We were married by Tara on June 19th 2021 at The Riverbank House Hotel. From our very first phonecall with Tara we were instantly put at ease. What we thought might be somewhat stressful was not at all and really got us excited for the big day with everything else that was going on in the world. Tara is so so lovely and told us exactly what we needed to do step by step so we followed her lead. We told Tara our story and she created a stunningly beautiful ceremony for us from that first phonecall. She captured us exactly as we are as a couple and we would never have been able to word our story better ourselves! I later found out Tara looked after the groom and his best men while waiting for the brides arrival which he and the others appreciated very much as nerves were building at that stage.

Nothing was too much trouble for Tara, every email/phonecall was answered promptly and always answered our questions which meant we could plan everything easily and exactly how we wanted it to be on the day.
Tara kept in touch with us throughout and really helped us create a magical ceremony for us and our family & friends. Everyone in attendance enjoyed the ceremony and loved hearing our story from Tara.
I can’t recommend Tara highly enough for your big day. Without a doubt would put Tara’s name forward for upcoming ceremonies.

Michael & Winni Somers

Well what can I say Tara was simply amazing. From the moment we started to work with Tara she was on top of everything and myself and my husband have really conflicting diaries with work but she didn’t let this put her off and over a WhatsApp call she managed to meet both of us. From there we felt so at ease with her. A consummate professional but becomes a friend instantly. She just simply got everything we wanted and drafted the perfect ceremony. Going back and forth was so easy and always a joy. This is one part of planning the wedding I was dreading as my family would be devoutly religious and we’re not happy I was going with something not religious. But on the day everyone was talking about how personal and touching the ceremony was and I think that is the true measure of how good Tara is. If you have Tara for your ceremony your a very lucky couple.

Quin and Tara

I would highly recommend Tara, from start to finish she was fantastic. She is the perfect combination of friendly, well spoken and professional. The ceremony planning was really fun and she made the process so simple. She has a way with words and when she spoke during our ceremony she held the rooms attention perfectly. I would definitely recommend her and cant thank her enough for the memories she has given us on our special day.

Keira and Shane O'Moore

We would highly recommend tara. From the first time we spoke with her about our wedding, we knew she was exactly what we wanted on our wedding day. Tara spoke about us perfectly at the wedding, really getting our interests, hobbies and most of all our love. It was so emotional and it honestly meant so much to us to have tara part of our special day. Nothing was ever too big a job for her, she was always there to help & give advise. We are so happy to have her marry us.

Yvonne & Michael

Delighted to recommend Tara to any couple planning their wedding. Tara designed our ceremony to suit our needs, without any fuss. She was extremely flexible and very practical, which was needed when trying to organise a wedding during Covid!

We had a very small wedding but still wanted a thoughtful and special ceremony. Several guests (even those who were skeptical of the getting-married-in-a-hotel set-up) were very complimentary afterwards and really noticed that the words were so appropriate to us.

Thank you Tara!

Damien and Caroline

Thank you Tara for absolutely everything. Tara was our Celebrant on the 11th of December 2020. We met with Tara the year before for a cup of coffee and that was that. She helped and guided us through everything making it very stress free. She was always at the end of the phone or email if we needed any advice. As for the day Tara put us all at ease. The ceremony was personal and professional all in one. We could not have asked for anything else. Thank you Tara

Carrie and Matt

Tara married us on the 30/12/20 and she made it the most magical ceremony that we could ever have wished for!
From our first zoom call we knew we had picked the right lady for the job.
Tara was such a pleasure to work with and really took time to get to know our story and our personalities, in doing this she performed the most beautiful ceremony that ourselves and all our guests enjoyed from start to finish.
We would most definitely recommend Tara, her professionalism, pleasant nature and witty humour made our day so very very special!
Thank you Tara.

Sorcha & Barry

We just want to pass on our sincere thank you to Tara for making our wedding day so special and stress free. For the months leading up to our wedding day she was always available to answer any questions we had and she made sure that everything ran so smoothly on the day. All of our wedding guests commented on how beautiful and personal the ceremony was. You are so profressional in what you do and we will always remember this day with happiness. Thank you. Sean and Shirley

Sean and Shirley

Tara was our Celebrant for our Wedding last October and we’re so glad we found her! Spiritual Ceremonies make arranging the most important part of a Wedding the most straightforward, and any questions are answered immediately. Tara is such a lovely person, she gave us so much advice and really thought of everything. When Covid threatened our Wedding plans for a 3rd time Tara was the first to let us know that she would not let us down. On the day, it felt like Tara was one of our friends! She had everything covered. All our guests loved the ceremony and still talk about how great Tara was. We can’t thank her enough!

Elaine & Dan

We had the pleasure of having Tara as our Celebrant for our Wedding on 1st October 2020.
Tara was amazing from the first time we talked to her on the phone to the first time we met and on the big day. Our ceremony was more beautiful than we could have imagined, from the ring warming ceremony to the hand binding, it was so perfect. Anything we asked of Tara, she obliged without question. Tara was also very reassuring throughout the tough times of 2020. It made planning the wedding that bit easier, knowing the ceremony was in good hands.
All our friends and family were blown away how nice and personal the ceremony was and we could not recommend Tara highly enough.

Triona and Darren

When we first met Tara we knew she was the perfect celebrant for us. She took the time to really get to know us and our story. Anytime we needed to change anything to do with our ceremony she was always available for a call. We had to change our wedding 3 times due to covid and Tara was always so accommodating which really helped us. The ceremony itself was perfect & Tara made sure we were relaxed and talked us through everything. We could not recommend Tara enough.

Emma & Michael

We got married on the 24th October 2020 and Tara was our celebrant. We absolutely cannot recommend her highly enough.
From the very beginning she was so helpful with getting things organised and as soon as we met Tara in person we knew she would be perfect.
Because of covid and the lockdown we had to make quite a few changes to our wedding and to the ceremony itself. No matter how many times we chopped and changed things Tara never complained. She was so accommodating every time.
Tara made our wedding so very special because she made it so personal for us and she also made sure that our son was a big part of it too.
If you have Tara as your celebrant you will not be disappointed!

From the very 1st moment we spoke to Tara she was amazing with everything from getting to know us and how we wanted our special day to be to helping us out with alot of questions we asked. I cant reccomend Tara and spiritual ceremonies highly enough for a blissfull wedding from start to finish absoulutly went above and beyond for us both to make our wedding exactly how we wanted.

Derek &Orla.

We had the privelage of having Tara marry us at Kinnity Castle last saturday. From the moment we booked through spiritual ceremonies Tara was in contact with us via e-mail and zoom. She went theough everything with us gave us great ideas and listened to exactly what we dreamed of for our bog day. Tara was so lovely to deal with and our big day was perfect. Thank you so much Tara we were delighted we had you to marry us cant reccomend you highly enough x

Derek and Orla

Tara was our solemniser for our wedding last Friday October 30th. From the day we met Tara to last Friday, she has been nothing but a pleasure to deal with. She created a beautiful ceremony for us and captured our story brilliantly. Given our wedding was originally planned for March and only took place last week, Tara has been incredibly patient, understanding and helpful in getting us to our wedding day! We genuinely cannot thank her enough for all her hard work in preparing and presiding over our day, and we would definitely recommend Tara to any couple.

Ian & Patti

We had our wedding on the 6th September 2020 with Tara Carroll from spiritual ceremonies as our celebrant. Tara was such a support from when we very first spoke providing great advice to then just being a constant support and just being there for us. On the day itself Tara did so much more than legally marrying us, such a calm and helpful presence and of course provided us with a beautiful and meaningful ceremony. Tara helped make our day and our ceremony full of fun and so special. Thank you

Claire and Karl

From the moment I first emailed Tara and then had our zoom call I knew that I could trust in her! She was absolutely amazing between helping us with prayers and also making it so special and explaining me and partner to a t! We decided at last minute to move our wedding forward and had a week to plan everything when we told Tara she was all go and offering us help with anything that we might have needed done if you are lucky to get Tara on your wedding day your already winning as she’s brilliant thank you for helping celebrate our special day with us love the new MR & MRS DEATON

Mark and Sarah

I am delighted to say Tara was our celebrant for our wedding in March 2020. She was the best celebrant we could have hoped for. From the first time we met Tara she was so welcoming, friendly and so easy to talk to. During the planning stages Tara was always there answering questions, giving ideas or supporting us through our journey. In the days before our ceremony we came across a difficult situation but Tara was there, reminding us why we were getting married, reassured us and promised to help us in anyway she could. Our guests said the ceremony was just beautiful and Tara was amazing and we agree. We would highly recommend Tara and hopefully our paths cross again in the future. Thank you Tara for everything x

Mark and Laura

I actually don’t know where to start. From our very first dealings with Tara we knew we had made the right decision, this was then confirmed when we met her for a coffee a few weeks prior to the ceremony. She just got us straight away, she understood what we were looking for in our ceremony and delivered it 1000%. It seemed effortless to her, but very apparent that she had put a lot of time and effort into the preparations, we will be forever grateful Tara, thank you. Our Family loved the ceremony as much as what we did, and the ceremony for us will always be the most special part of the day and that is all down to you – Thank you again Tara,we will always remember it, and the balloons!!! lol Best Wishes Sam & Mark

Samantha and Mark

From the moment we met Tara we knew she was the perfect fit for us. She is an absolute pleasure, so friendly and laid back but also very professional. She made our ceremony planning a breeze and everyone commented on the day how fantastic she was. I would definitely recommend her. Thank you so much Tara!

David and Lisa

We had Tara to marry us, she was absolutely amazing, the ceremony was so personal and beautiful. Tara herself was great leading up to the wedding she answered all our questions and was a great help. I would highly recommend Tara. Thank you so much Tara for making our day so beautiful x

Vega and Brian

We got married in January 2020. Our wedding Co-ordinator told us about Tara. She mentioned how amazing Tara was, so we were happy to get in touch with Tara. Tara was super from start to finish. She was so easy to speak to and very down to earth. She made me feel very excited about the ceremony. We arranged to meet and Tara helped us to customize a ceremony that suited us as a couple and our two daughters. Being a mother herself she knew exactly how to involve our girls in the ceremony. We had the most amazing ceremony. All of our friends and family were in awe of how personal and touching our ceremony was. Tara made it so personal for us and we can’t thank her enough. Tara is fantastic and extremely passionate about her job.

Alan and Shauna

We decided to get married in our Hotel as an alternative to a church Wedding as we wanted a relaxed day where everyone was with us from start to finish without the hassle of driving to and from a church to a venue. Once we decided this, I contacted Spiritual Ceremonies and was contacted by Tara as I had requested a female celebrant. From first contact to our meeting and through all correspondence right up to our Wedding ceremony we were delighted with our luck in finding Tara. She takes the time to get to know her couples and it showed on the day as it was a lovely ceremony with so many guests passing comment on how different and personal it was by including our Mothers and our children. We opted for the sand ceremony, ring warming and hand tying at the end. Tara, thanks you for being there on our day it was a pleasure to have you involved in every aspect. Stacey and Brendan xxx

Tara was our celebrant for our wedding that took place in The Village Barn, Tyrrellspass, Co Westmeath. From the moment we met Tara 2 months previous, we felt so relaxed and at ease with Tara. The ceremony itself was just amazing. Tara told such a beautiful story about us as a couple. We thoroughly enjoyed the words of wisdom and sand ritual that we could involve our daughter Katie. Our guests are still talking about Tara and the beautiful ceremony we had on our day. I would highly recommend any future couples to book Tara!

Annemarie and Leeroy

From the moment we met Tara, we knew we had made the right choice in having a Spiritualist ceremony. Tara was so warm and professional. Nothing was too much trouble for her. I changed my mind a few times when it can to the wording and Tara edited the things we wanted added or removed from the draft without any issues. All our family and friends have commented and said it was one of the nicest, most intimate ceremonies they’ve ever had the pleasure of attending. My other half told me after the wedding that Tara really helped him relax before I arrived. He was so nervous but Tara ensured him all would be well and of course it was. I highly recommend Tara to anybody thinking of having a Spiritualist wedding. You won’t regret it.

Glenn and Joanne

Tara was our celebrant for our wedding on the 29th of November. Tara was recommended to my Mum by one of her friends(whose daughter she had previously married) and we couldnt be happier that we chose her to marry us too. She is so friendly, warm, funny, professional and above all personable. She went out of her way to get to know us and it really came across in the ceremony. She provided loads of direction too and really adapted the ceremony to us. It was so personal. The ceremony was one of the best parts about the day, without a doubt. We have no hesitation in recommmding Tara to future brides and Grooms Niamh and Dave

Niamh and David

Tara was a pure delight, from our first meeting. She helped us to navigate drafting our ceremony and was on hand whenever we needed her input. She is creative and so lovely to deal with. On the day of our wedding, the ceremony was flawless and beautiful, expertly carried out by Tara. We didn’t do a rehersal and, despite that, the proceedings were smooth and each participant received discreet prompting from Tara throughout. I couldn’t believe how well it all went, it was beautiful from start of finish. Tara had our guests in floods of tears and the feedback we received throughout our day and since has been overwhelmingly positive. Ourselves and our guests had our expectations exceeded by a mile. The ceremony was truly the highlight of our day and we would not hesitate to recommend Tara to any couple about to start their wedding preparations. Thank you Tara, we will never forget it!

Zara and Roisin

Tara was an absolute professional from the moment we booked her right through to the ceremony. We couldn’t recommend her highly enough. She was very organised and her experience and professionalism really came across, which put both of us at ease throughout the whole process. When we met her first, she was very friendly and approachable and came prepared with a list of questions to help get to know us and how we wanted everything to go. She also had many fantastic suggestions and options which made planning the ceremony and running order very clear and straightforward. On the day, she was at the venue well in advance and was there to great us both and reassure us that everything was going to plan. Both ourselves and our guests were made to feel totally at ease during the ceremony. We were also highly impressed with Tara’s delivery of the ceremony, it was clear she had taken the time to get to know us and prepare a ceremony which was personal to us.

Sarah and Patrick

Harold and I could not have chosen a better Celebrant …..Tara was absolutely outstanding. From the minute we meet Tara she put us at ease and advised us so well on our ceremony and how she would ensure it reflected our wishes. We got married at Kilronan Castle and Tara meet us in advance of our ceremony and she kindly reassured us that the ceremony would be wonderful. And yes the ceremony was absolutely wonderful. Tara was so dignified, professional, respectful, human and caring. All our guests have commented that they had never been at such a heartfelt ceremony before. We could not thank Tara enough. THANK YOU TARA FOR EVERYTHING Michael and Harold

Harold and Michael

We just couldn’t speak highly enough of Tara. From the very first day we met she was so easy to deal with. She is so professional and an absolute pleasure to deal with. She helped us build our ideal ceremony and helped us involve our children. She has a lovely calming personality and we are so delighted she was part of our day

Anita and Sean

I don’t think we will have enough space to say all we would like to say about Tara. She is the loveliest lady and we are so happy that we found her to officiate our special day. From the moment we met her it was like talking to a friend. She genuinely cared about our story and brought it so seamlessly into our ceremony. It was hands down our favourite part of the day. The ceremony was a mixture of happy tears and laughter which was exactly what we wanted. EVERYONE commented on how brilliant Tara was. I had family members crying after the ceremony saying it was so personal and unique. You will not regret booking Tara, we can guarantee that.

Crista and Conor

Tara was amazing to deal with . She was so easy going and got a sense of what we liked very quickly . When she had a checklist of things to include and exclude from the ceremony it made me relax so much . The ceremony was fabulous and it really felt like we put our stamp on it . We were worried about our son on our wedding day as he was only 15 months but Tara assured us he could do what he likes on the day . That really put us as ease . My new hubby hates weddings and normally dreads them but after meeting Tara he was very relaxed about the whole thing . She gave good advice about reading placement and all the small details . Her delivery on the day was excellent also she didn’t need a mic and everyone is still talking about how lovely the ceremony was . Thanks again Tara for everything . I would highly recommend her .

Ailbhe and Alan

Tara is ridiculously good at what she does. Performed a beautiful,warm,fun and sentimental ceremony for us. Really nice voice and manner. Couldn’t have asked for more. Didn’t have to think of a thing, she took care of everything and made it so easy. So many of our guests specifically mentioned how good she was. Would have no hesitation in recommending her to any couple.

Amanda and Paddy

I can not recommend Tara highly enough, she is absolutely excellent at what she does. From our first encounter we knew she was the perfect celebrant to marry us. She put us at ease right away and we knew we were in good hands. She is so genuine, easy going, warm, professional and full of good advice. She got to know us personally and then wrote a beautiful ceremony for us, and was always only a phone call or an email away for any questions we had. Nothing was too much trouble for her. Our guests were so impressed with how she conducted the ceremony in such professional, relaxed, warm way. She really made our special day all the more special, I can not thank her enough!

Therese and Peter

Tara Carroll did an absolutely amazing job officiating our ceremony in July 2020 !
Due to the crazy times we literally had to change everything down to Venues ! Tara throughout from the first email always was extremely helpful and gave excellent tips on how best to achieve our wedding our way!
She took everything we said and wrote he most beautiful & funny ceremony!
She advised us on everything down to candles and how many peoms etc.
How she presented our ceremony on the day was both funny & charming and endearing!
Everyone complimented on the service and how personilised it was to us as indivduals!
We incorporated our children into Ceremony and nothing was a problem .
She gave everyone the directions especially my husband to be who was a nervous wreck !
Everything went without a hitch considering the crazy timea we found outselves in ,having to change venues numbers etc.
I couldnt reccommend Tara enough and I am so glad I went with spirtitiul ceremonies.
Tara made our day special in our way xxxx Thank you so so much!

Sarah-Jane & Colum

I really recommend Spiritual Ceremonies for anyone who wants a relaxed and personal wedding. Our Celebrant Tara Carroll was really lovely and professional to meet and deal with. She kept us on top of anything we needed to do for the ceremony, which was very little a she was so helpful and really put our minds at ease regarding the ceremony, as this is usually the part a lot of us getting married are most nervous about! We had a small family ceremony, and one of the biggest perks of booking a celebrant, is that we decided to get married in the gardens of a local museum. On the day, Tara was present to make sure everything was ready for the ceremony. The ceremony was my favourite part of the day, as it was really personal to us, and everyone enjoyed it. It was a relaxed and enjoyable ceremony from start to finish, which was a fantastic start to our wonderful day. We had the sand ceremony included, which is such a lovely keepsake to have from the day! I cannot thank Tara enough for everything, and would highly recommend her to anyone looking for a lovely relaxed day!!

Laura and Ronan

We would highly recommend @taracarroll from Spiritual Ceremonies. She was our wedding celebrant Saturday and was truly amazing! She is kind, funny and really set a great atmosphere! Thank you so so much Tara for all your communication, help and for such a beautiful ceremony which our guests really loved. X

Riona and Mason

We had the pleasure of meeting our celebrant Tara O Carroll, who works for Spiritual Ceremonies. Tara worked very closely with us to personalise our ceremony and have what we wanted.

With her guidance, we opted for a Hand Tying ceremony, complete with a Rose ceremony and the Sand ceremony. This way, our families were all included in our special day.

Tara worked well with the hotel ensuring we had everything we needed. She was warm, funny, adapted well to what was happening on the day, and made the journey and the ceremony something to remember. I recieved so many comments on how beautiful Tara made the ceremony and requests from guests for her details.

Thank you Tara and Spiritual Ceremonies from the bottom of our hearts.

Claire and Wayne

Our wedding celebrant was Tara Carroll. We couldn’t have asked for a better celebrant to marry us! From the moment we met with Tara, we knew we got the right person. She was the most helpful and very informative. She guided us through the many options we have for our wedding and aid us when we were in doubt.

As for the wedding day itself, Tara was well prepared and had everything under control. Cause we were rather nervous, as anyone would! Tara made sure we felt comfortable and no need to be stressed. Thanks to ber, the wedding went smoothly and we had a fantastic time!

For the final note we totally recommend using spiritual ceremony. They provide an excellent service and the most friendly to deal with

Jacky and Jessica

When my husband and I decided to get married in Ireland (we live in Australia) we were so delighted with the service we received from Spiritual Ceremonies, especially our celebrant Tara Carroll.
Planning a wedding from overseas can be quite a daunting task, however with Tara guiding us through the process it was a very enjoyable experience and we knew we were in good hands.
We wanted our ceremony to be light-hearted and fun and also contain some traditional elements such as hand fastening and Tara wrote and delivered the perfect ceremony for us.
So many of our family and friends have commented on how personal the ceremony was and how it reflected both our personalities. We were very lucky to have Tara dedicated to us and can’t thank you enough!
Shannon & Josh

Shannon and Joshua

Tara Carroll performed our ceremony at Lough Rynn Castle on 12th May 2018. I can’t recommend her enough. She was so personable and warm and as she guided us through the process of developing our ceremony we were confident we were in great hands. It was the perfect mix of religious and non-regligious. Everyone loved how personal our ceremony was and during the ceremony Tara guided us calmly through each step. It was a perfect experience. You’ve won the lottery if you have Tara at your wedding!

Susan and James

We got married a month ago in Kiltimagh and Tara Carroll was our celebrant. she was so lovely when we met with her and we felt straight away that she was definitely the one to marry us. she made us feel so at easy and made an nervous unknown experience feel exciting and calm. she emailed draft of our ceremony to us and allowed for changes. on our wedding day she handled us giddy fools (bags of nerves) like a professional and gave us a ceremony that had quite a few quests crying. i cant recommend her enough.

Niamh and Gary

Tara Carroll was our celebrant 13/7/18 in the bridge house hotel tullamore , she was fantastic , very warm and personal made us both feel very comfortable, all our guests commented on how personal it was.

Declan and Gina

Tara Carroll.. 5 stars is not enough of a rating for you, you absolutely blew my guests away with a stunning ceremony, so much that a few of them have decided to get married and will be using Spiritual Ceremonies everybody is still talking about what a fantastic and beautiful ceremony it was, and how relaxed and personal to us you made it, it was so lovely, we can’t thank you enough Tara As for the wedding day itself, Tara was well prepared and had everything under control. Cause we were rather nervous, as anyone would! Tara made sure we felt comfortable and no need to be stressed. Thanks to her, the wedding went smoothly and we had a fantastic time! For the final note we totally recommend using spiritual ceremony. They provide an excellent service and the most friendly to deal with

Luther and Janice

Tara Carroll married us at Borris House in August this year but her work didn’t start there. Tara worked with us (over the phone from Australia!) in the months leading up to our wedding to help us create a beautiful personalised ceremony. Tara gave us tons of options and talked us through each one until we finally had the ceremony structure we wanted. The ceremony was one of the best parts of the day and all our guests complimented us on how unique and beautiful it was. Tara explained how everything worked from the beginning and made us feel so at ease and calm about the whole thing. I couldn’t recommend Spiritual Ceremonies and Tara enough.

Mark and Sarah

It’s hard to express how grateful we are to Tara for making the ceremony one of the highlights of our wedding day. It was such a stress free, enjoyable experience. She was so calm, positive and encouraging at every stage – particularly when myself and my brother forgot to bring the rings to the venue 🙂 Tara created a unique wedding ceremony for us, specifically written in a way to bring our two cultures together. It included 2 Celtic traditions of Unity candle and Hand binding and 2 Indian traditions of ‘Aarti’ (welcoming the groom’s family into the bride’s family) and Varmala. The feedback from our guests has been so positive. Thank you so much Tara for helping make our wedding day the happiest of our lives.

Myles and Copal

After originally requesting someone else for our wedding, Tara was appointed to us, much to my disappointment as we had heard great things about someone else from spiritual Ceremonies. HOW WRONG I WAS to feel disappointed, Tara was amazing. Nearly every single one of our guests complemented the ceremony, comments like “that was the best wedding ceremony I have ever been at” and “the service was so personal, I have never been at a better ceremony”. We wanted our personalities reflected in our ceremony and Tara came in strong with that. Absolutely fantastic.

Zoe and Brian

We can’t Thank Spiritual ceremonies enough. Tara Carroll was amazing. She helped in every way possible. We planned a destination wedding from the States and she kept in contact with us from the start to end. She helped us plan and reminded us of important details along the way. Our ceremony was beautifully written and customized to us. She conducted our ceremony and it was our dream fulfilled. Thank You so much Tara!

Michelle and Carlos

Tara Carroll performed our ceremony on april 28th 2018 everyone is still raving about it . It was beautiful so personal. Thanks again tara

Fergus and Joan

Tara was the most amazing celebrant, from the first point of contact to the day of our wedding. The ceremony was beautiful and so special which welcomed everyone. Thank you, Frances and Patrick

Patrick and Frances

My wife and myself discovered the spiritual ceremonies looking for an alternative to mainstream religious marriage, and we loved it! The romantic and true meaning of this beautiful ceremony inspired by Celtic tradition made our wedding very special. Tara Carroll, our celebrant, was very friendly and open and created a ceremony telling our own love story. On the big day, she handled everything brilliantly and performed a memorable wedding full of emotions! Our families are still talking about it.

Nikolay and Anne-marie

Where do I begin to describe this wonderful lady! From the first moment we met to discuss our ceremony I got a lovely warm feeling from Tara; she gave us such wonderful ideas to add to our ceremony; she went above and beyond her role as celebrant on the day – checking in with both myself and my groom steadying our nerves. Our guests commented on how she held their attention throughout the ceremony. I couldn’t of asked for a more professional lovely down to earth person and for that we are grateful!

Jackie and Niall

Tara helped us celebrate our wedding, we had such a fantastic day and the ceremony was such a central part of it. It was such a magical day – we would love to do it all again!! So many of our guests commented on our ceremony about how much they loved it and how personal it was. Tara helped share our story! Our guests were singing Tara’s praises and for many it was their first spiritual ceremony and they thoroughly enjoyed it! Tara made time to speak with both of us before the ceremony it put us both at ease! Also from the very first contact Tara was really responsive and informative about the whole process, would definitely recommend.

Emma and Steven

Where do I begin. From the first moment I contacted Spiritual Ceremonies they were fantastic. They put me in touch with our Solemniser Tara Carroll. From the first moment I spoke to Tara I knew quite simply she was the one for us. Warmth and love simply radiated from her. We met up with Tara and she was simply a joy to be around. I loved everything she suggested and when our draft came through I literally jumped for joy. Not only that but she we felt she was genuinely interested in us, our story and our little boy loved her which was most important for me. Everyone at our wedding commented on how beautiful the ceremony was and also how personal it was and it all came from Tara. There wasn’t a dry eye in the house. I can never ever thank her enough for giving us the ceremony of dreams. I couldn’t recommend both Tara and Spiritual Ceremonies enough xxxx

Leona and Tom

We chose Spiritual Ceremonies to perform our ceremony, and we couldn’t be more happy with our choice. Tara Carroll was our solemnizer, and she was wonderful to work with from the first email communication through the ceremony. Tara provided support, encouragement and suggestions, yet allowed us to completely customize our ceremony. Our guests commented on how intimate, unique and special our wedding was, and said it was the best wedding they had attended. We are very happy we made the choice to use Spiritual Ceremonies, and we highly recommend Tara Carroll in particular.

Liam and Kelly

Tara Carroll was our celebrant for our wedding but left as our friend. She was so professional and personable and really supported us on the day. Tara worked with us to write a beautiful ceremony. Tara was a friendly face to see on the day and really calmed our nerves, going above and beyond even holding my tissue for the hand binding. We would recommend her for any wedding, a beautiful person

Aisling and Eamon

Tara was an amazing celebrant. In the build up to our wedding she was on hand to go through every step with us. We live in Australia so it was difficult for us to organise everything from so far away. The one element we knew we didn’t have to worry about was the celebrant. We had numerous emails and lengthy phone calls with Tara and she really put us at ease. She took notes on everything about me and my new wife and then compiled an amazing ceremony tailored to us. She had us down to a tee. It gave our guests an insight into our relationship as it developed up to the point where we were all gathered for our wedding, thanks to Tara. On the day she spoke beautifully that everyone could hear as we were in an outdoor area with no microphones. I would recommend Tara to anyone who wants to have an amazing person who genuinely cares and delivers the ceremony as if she is part of your family or guest list. It was the next best thing to having a family member deliver the ceremony

Jordan and Jessica

I’m actually a little emotional writing this. Tara Carroll was without a doubt the best ‘supplier’ we dealt with for our wedding. She got a sense of both of us immediately on our first official meeting and we didn’t stop laughing all the way through. The ceremony was precisely what we wanted it to be, a day of fun laughter, love and celebration. Tara’s addition to our ideal made it whole. What a wonderful, warm, funny, engaging person you are Tara. We had no idea how to go about the process of a civil ceremony and from the moment we met Tara we knew it would be ok. As matter of fact part if the reason that we choose Annebrook House as avenue for our wedding was because we met Tara there and as a whole the experience when we were venue shopping was one of the best. I actually can’t believe how much work she did for us, I wasn’t expecting half of what she did and I couldn’t believe that all of that work was included in what we paid. If you are looking for a celebrant that has everything; Tara is your celebrant.

Tara is AMAZING!! she’s so professional easy going and just a fantastically warm person I’m so glad she was part of our wedding day. The part of my wedding day that I looked forward to the most was the ceremony and thats all because of Tara, she tailor made the ceremony about myself and Barry she summed us up to a tee.. we’ve been living away for the past 5 years so she really gave our guests an insight to us a couple and the life we have built together. She was so informative as to what we could include in the ceremony and we went for it all…tying of the knot (which was beautiful) sand ceremony (where our baby boy was included <3) the ring warming (which our guests thought was a beautiful touch) All of our guests said they had never been at a ceremony like it. It was so witty and upbeat and romantic and all about myself and Barry, everyone thought that Tara was a friend of ours and couldn't believe it when we told them we had only spoke on the phone with her 3 times prior to the wedding! Tara thank you so much for giving us the ceremony of our dreams you are unbelievable at what you do, you really are an amazing person….you made me feel so relaxed and excited about the ceremony and what you delivered was more than we could have ever dreamed off <3 thank you thank you thank you. xoxox love Louise Barry and baby Ruben..

We had Tara Carroll as our celebrant and she is amazing! From our first point of contact Tara made us feel at ease and excited about our ceremony. Tara came to our home to discuss the ceremony and was so relaxed and got to know us as a couple making it so personal. We had the ring warming ceremony, sand ceremony, handbinding and wrote love letters to each other which we will open on our wedding anniversary. It was so personal and our guests are still talking about it. If you are in doubt talk to Tara she is great at what she does we had no idea what we were doing until we spoke with her. On the day Tara kept us all calm and made us feel so at ease. She is a natural at her job. Thank you Tara for making our day so memorable and maybe one day our paths will cross again

We had the pleasure to work with Tara Carroll from Spiritual Ceremonies for our wedding at Lough Eske Castle in Donegal (May 2019). Tara was absolutely incredible from our very first interaction with her. She helped us design our fairy tale ceremony complete with the Celtic tradition of “Tying the Knot,” as well as very personal touches that reflected us perfectly. Tara was so responsive and easy to work with from the very beginning. Our guests could not stop raving about how incredible our celebrant was, and we couldn’t agree more. Tara – you made our dream wedding come true, and we will cherish these memories forever. Many, many thanks, Laura and Kelly.

We got married in June this year and were lucky enough to have had Tara as our celebrant. A friendly and vibrant lady and a true professional. Tara composed our ceremony for us after a lovely meeting with her to chat over our story and our wishes for our wedding day celebrations. We were delighted with the our ceremony, a beautiful and personalized ceremony that made our day very special. Tara went over and above to make sure our day was perfect for us. We would highly recommend Tara and Spiritual Ceremonies for your wedding day.

We booked our celebrant Tara Carroll through Spiritual Ceremonies & we couldn’t have been happier. Tara did such a great job, on the lead up she was always just an email/text away and nothing was ever too much hassle for her. She kept us informed on what exactly would be happening throughout the day. On the day itself she kept both myself & my partner Sarah so calm, checking in on us both before the ceremony in our rooms and organizing everything without bothering us. The ceremony itself was so personal & she made everyone laugh which we loved but also was kept it serious when needed. The ceremony was actually our favorite part of the whole day as it was for many other people. We would highly recommend Tara.

We owe Tara a huge debt of gratitude. Start to finish, she was incredible. She set the tone for what was a unique wedding day. Our Irish and Canadian families were in awe at how personalised the ceremony was, the beauty and romance of some of the non-traditional elements of the ceremony we incorporated thanks to Tara’s suggestions, and the perfect balance she struck between solemnity and fun. Long prior to the wedding, she had our planning concerns put at ease with her experience of all aspects of ceremony planning. She made time to meet us at a place and time that suited us, to talk to us about our story, what’s important to us and what we hoped the ceremony would be. We’d 100% recommend her to a friend. Thank you Tara!

Dave and Amanda

We cannot recommend Tara enough for our beautiful day . From start to finish she was very professional and so easy to talk to. The one comment we both received through out the whole day and after was how beautiful and unique our ceremony was and how lovely tara conducted the ceremony. Thank you so much for everything on the wedding day and leading up to the day.

Mairead and Stephen

We had a magnificent wedding day, and Tara Carroll played no small part. From our first contact with Tara, she couldn’t have been more helpful. She took the time to meet us and really listen to what we wanted and get to know us, so on the day of the wedding our family and friends recognised us and our personalities. The suggestions of hand tying and the sand jar were perfect and made a huge impression on the guests. The ceremony was so meaningful thanks to Tara

Denise and Josephine

Tara was our celebrant for our wedding in August and I cannot recommend her enough. From our first contact and meeting with her we knew she was the celebrant for us and we couldn’t be happier with our choice. We didn’t know where to start with ceremony planning and she talked us through all the options available we had and helped us make the choice for a ceremony that worked for us. The finished ceremony was so lovely, personalised and unique and many guests commented on this. Some of them even mentioned how they would be looking her up when their own wedding came along. One thing we really liked was that Tara took the time to get to know us as a couple, so her opening speech about us really captured us and started the ceremony off in a really personal way. We are happy to recommend her for your ceremony.

Eileen and Dave

Tara was our celebrant for our wedding back in August and we really couldn’t recommend her enough. From our first meeting with her she really put us at ease and and went through every detail with us whether it be big or small. She is very professional and you can see she loves what she does. Our ceremony was everything we wanted and more. It was the first spiritual ceremony for alot of our friends and family and they thought it was the nicest most personal ceremony they were at. 100% we would recommend Tara it wouldn’t have been as magical without her.

Tara is a wonderful person and did the most amazing job for us. The ceremony was fantastic, she just made our day and numerous guests commented on how fantastic she was and how well she spoke. My mother passed less than 6 months before our wedding and Tara was just amazing at remembering her on the day. I could write an essay on Tara and how brilliant she was .She is made for this job and has found her calling, were just blessed we found her for our wedding.Thanks Tara

Shane and Carmel

Wow, where do I start? With the groom flying in just 24 hours before the ceremony you might imagine the last minuteness of our day. And Tara was a godsend. I was a little stressed and from the moment I discovered Tara she made the whole experience feel seamless and effortless. With so little planning and prep done on our half, she created a ceremony that felt real, genuine, authentic and filled with so much love. Her presence is an incredible thing to experience and both of us have spoken numerous times since the day about how special Tara made our fantastic day. I am not a fan of pomp and ceremony and I see myself as a bit of Celt/Druid pagan sort of person. It hit is directly on the spot. I really can not be happier with the experience I and my husband 🙂 had and we will cherish and forever be grateful to Tara for making this happen. Thank you, from the depths of our hearts.

Sam

We cant even begin to express how happy we were with the ceremony that Tara helped us create. Everything was perfect and just as we had imagined. Thanks to Tara we were able to have the experience of a lifetime on our wedding day with little to no worry. She was extremely helpful and professional at all times and was always just an email/call away. Every single guest which attended our ceremony commented on how beautiful and personal our ceremony was whilst also commenting on how Tara did such an amazing job throughout. We would highly recommend both Tara and Spiritual Ceremonies for your special day. Rebecca & Darren

We were honored to have Tara Carroll from Spiritual Ceremonies celebrate our wedding on 29th July 2017 in The Abbey Court Hotel in Nenagh. We found the Spiritual Ceremonies service to be very professional and every query was attended to very promptly. The handbook that they sent us contained all the information that we needed and was extremely useful. We cannot express our gratitude enough to Tara Carroll for her guidance and kindness in preparing and officiating the ceremony. She made us feel completely at ease from the first time we spoke. Having met us she incorporated our story into the ceremony making it personal and special to us. The ceremony was a beautiful celebration of our love and Tara captured our relationship perfectly on the day. The entire ceremony was lighthearted which was exactly we wanted. Tara was always on hand to answer questions and explained everything thoroughly. She was a pure professional on the day and everyone warmed to her immediately. Her personal touch was so moving. So many guests said that it was the most meaningful and special wedding ceremony that they had ever witnessed and have contacted us again since to reiterate this. We would highly recommend this type of ceremony and Tara to any bride and groom without any reservation. We wouldn’t have changed one thing about it. Thanks again for making our ceremony so special. We will definitely treasure the memories for a lifetime.
