I really recommend Spiritual Ceremonies

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!!

We had the pleasure of

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.

Our wedding celebrant was Tara

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

When my husband and I

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!

Tara Carroll performed our ceremony

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!

We got married a month

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.

My wife and myself discovered

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.

Tara Carroll married us at

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.

It’s hard to express how

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.

After originally requesting someone else

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.

We can’t Thank Spiritual ceremonies

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

Where do I begin to

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

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

Tara Carroll was our celebrant

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

We got married in June

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.

Where do I begin. From

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

We chose Spiritual Ceremonies to

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.

Tara was an amazing celebrant.

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

I’m actually a little emotional

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.

Claire and Neil

We cannot recommend Tara enough

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

Tara is AMAZING!! she’s so

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

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

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.

Laura and Kelly

We booked our celebrant Tara

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.

Amy and Sarah

We owe Tara a huge

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 had a magnificent wedding

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

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

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

Tara was our celebrant for

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

Wow, where do I start?

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.


We cant even begin to

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

Emily & Paddy about Tara Carroll

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.
