Tom Farrell OSUI

Tom Farrell is an Officiant of the Spiritualist Union of Ireland. He is registered as a solemniser with the General Registrars Office in the Republic of Ireland. Tom is also able to perform naming ceremonies.

We got married at Kilkea Castle officiated by Tom Farrell, and he was exceptional. Initially, he invited us to the lovely Knockrose, creating a comfortable atmosphere for us to connect. Tom’s relaxed and transparent approach made the ceremony incredibly special. Notably, he infused humor, making everyone laugh and ensuring we felt completely at ease. It was truly an amazing experience.

It was an absolute pleasure having Tom as our celebrant for our wedding ceremony in Brook Lodge. From our very first call he was so lovely to deal with and made the process very easy and enjoyable for us. He was very prompt in replying to any questions that we had. On the day he arrived early and visited us both separately to put us at ease. The ceremony itself was so beautiful, personal and relaxed, all of our guests commented on how special it was and how lovely our celebrant was. It was the highlight of our day and Tom ensured that everything ran so seamlessly. Would highly recommend to anyone!

When looking for a wedding celebrant we didn’t know what we were looking for or what to expect. Tom Farrell was assigned to us and when we met him it felt as if he was always supposed to be our celebrant.

Tom invited us both to his beautiful home and gave us so much of his time. Here we discussed our wedding, our relationship and life in general. Knockrose is an incredible place and it was an amazing first meeting for our wedding.

After our visit to Tom’s home he sent us a fantastic draft that included suggestions for us, things about our lives and relationships and even quotes from our meeting. Tom made it clear that it was our choice what goes in and what doesn’t. From here we were able to construct our perfect ceremony. We were in contact throughout and Tom even emailed the day before to make sure we remembered the important things for the ceremony.

The morning of the wedding Tom arrived early and met us and family members. He then set everyone at ease before the ceremony. The ceremony itself was even better than it was on paper. Tom brought it to life with a wonderful mix of emotion and humour. We couldn’t have imagined a better or more personal ceremony.

At the drinks reception everyone was complimenting us on such a beautiful and unique ceremony and how amazing Tom was.

Thank you so much for everything Tom.

Tom was great for our wedding. Very relaxed from start to finish . We knew right away when we met Tom that he was going to be our celebrant. And Knockrose gardens was beautiful. Thanks Tom. From Kieran and Leona

From our first phone call with Tom Farrell we were completely confident that our wedding day would be special and personal. Any questions, suggestions or edits that we had about our ceremony were responded to almost immediately and he was very easy to work with. On our wedding day Tom arrived in lots of time, spoke personally with myself and my husband and helped us feel relaxed. During the ceremony he was very professional but also fun and chilled. We were so happy with the service as he put us at ease and cracked a few jokes when we made some mistakes along the way, all of which made us more relaxed and able to enjoy our wedding. Loads of our guests commented that it was the nicest ceremony they had been at and we too believe it was brilliant, perfect even. We couldn’t recommend Tom Farrell highly enough.

We got married on 21st August in the Springfield Hotel and Tom was our celebrant, I can honestly say it was simply brilliant, he helped us through the whole build up of ceremony, I didn’t know what I actually wanted but knew what I did not want, and after a hour talking to Tom couple of months before hand He “got” what we wanted and wrote out our whole ceremony which was unique and special to us on the day. We had songs played and ribbons thrown and lots of smiles,
It was the best part of the day and I want to wish Tom a beautiful happy life he is one in a million

As we come to celebrate our fifth wedding. Anniversary on 28th February, we just want to thank Tom again for giving ourselves and our guests such wonderful and memorable service at Village at Lyons. Humour, solemnity and a little mischief really made the ceremony about us. I have to say, the introductory meeting was one of the best 90 mins I have had.
Thank you Tom,

Hi Tom

Hope you are keeping well. Firstly I’m sorry this email is long overdue. On behalf of my husband and I,and both our families we want to sincerely thank you for making our wedding ceremony so special.
I can honestly say it was my favourite part of the day ( which I really was not expecting)
It was so moving and intimate and compliments about you and your service are still in great flow amongst our friends.
I also want to thank you for settling both my parents and Greg’s parents as I know they were both nervous and anxious and your kind and calming words really did help.
We would love to come down and visit you in your tranquil setting and relive our day with you.
Again, all I can say is a massive thank you and I will forever remember the special ceremony you created for us!

Kindest of wishes

Dear Tom Farrell,

Thank you so so much for making our wedding day an incredible one.

Firstly it was so lovely that you visited both myself and Jonathan in our rooms before the ceremony. It was a lovely personal touch and I think it really helped to calm the nerves. Jonathan mentioned that you even helped him with his cuff links which was a lovely touch.

You did an incredible job on the ceremony. In fact from the moment we met you we knew you would touch our hearts. When you asked us both that day to describe each other it really moved each of us. You did such a lovely job of bringing these words to life on the day. So many people raved about what a gentleman you are and in fact many people who are already married said that if they had the chance again they would do a ceremony just like ours.

You put your heart and soul into it and we really felt it. For that we will always be grateful.

It’s was so important to us to have a personal ceremony that defined myself and Jonathan and that is exactly what we got.

Funnily two butterflies even paid us a visit. It really was a fairy tale and a dream come through.

I hope we meet again.

Thanks so much,

Roma and Jonny

Hi Tom

Sorry for the delay but what can I say about you Tom Farrell! Tom you were exceptional on the day, 25th July in woodlands hotel, Waterford! Not only as a celebrant, you were also like a therapist and made me and my mum so calm after a hectic and high anxiety morning! You made the whole congregation feel involved and important to me and Darren for having them there! Tom you are a wonderful person and you have this energy about you that just makes you feel safe and calm! I can’t thank you enough for making our ceremony the most wonderful part of the day! Wish you all the best,

Roisin and Darren!

Hi Tom

We just wanted to thank you for the wonderful job you did on Monday. The ceremony was beautiful and very personal to us. All of our guests have commented on how lovely it was and there were a fair few tears during it.

Thank you again

Dear Tom Colton,

Words cannot express how you have made us feel, from meeting with you on Monday at Powerscourt we knew then that we were going to have a very special ceremony.

You gave us great advice on the Monday about including our children, not only in the sand ceremony, but in the ribbon ceremony. Also to include our mothers in the lighting of the candles which they were both delighted with. It is a day which will be ingrained in all our memories forever,not only because we are married, but because of you and the ceremony.

Not one of our friends and family knew what to expect as they had never been to or involved in a Spiritual Ceremony before. But each and everyone of them came to us afterwards and said what a beautiful, meaning and touching service it was…and that says a lot especially from my Aunty Mary!!

From the moment you started in Tankardstown House, I could see in the mirror our friends and family already in tears because your words rang so true and had great meaning. Thank you for looking after us all on the day.

With much love

Mark and Audrey

( We went to Kerry for the weekend(with our sand in the back of car) and on those windy roads up the mountains my white sand still stayed on the top, much to Marks dismay and attempts at jolting the car around. haha)

Hi Eileen and Tom

Hope you are both well.

Eileen, please accept our heartfelt thanks and gratitude for delivering an absolutely beautiful ceremony on 1st August at our Wedding. I know that the majority of it we created ourselves, with our own vows to ensure it was personal and meaningful to us but you absolutely captured the essence of what we were looking to achieve and you were the ‘icing on the cake’ as they say. Everyone is still talking about how beautiful and touching the ceremony was, and how brilliant you were. Thank you for making us feel so comfortable on the day, we couldn’t have wished for more.

I really appreciated spending time with you the day prior to the wedding – this I believe really added to the ‘personal touch’ of the ceremony itself, I felt as if you knew us both so well, even after such a short time!

Tom, I have copied you in as we wanted you to know how fabulous Eileen is, which I am sure you already do know this, but we wanted to reiterate it.

Thanks again and all the best.

Dear Tom,

I hope you are doing very well and enjoying the start of Spring.
I wanted to thank you so sincerely on behalf of Lisa and I for the wonderful wedding ceremony you led in Carton House for us last month. We found it quite beautiful and moving. So many of our friends and family told us how they enjoyed it and found it very special. I am so glad we met you and had the opportunity to enjoy your gift of spiritualism and your kind way of talking to our guests at our wedding.
We have just returned from a lovely break and are headlong into work now. We are really looking forward to the year ahead and to our married life together.
Thanks again and I hope we will meet again soon.
Kind regards,

Dear Tom,

Apologies for the overdue message. It has been wonderfully hectic since the wedding!
We both wanted to express our gratitude for the fantastic ceremony you put together for us and all of the support you gave to us from the outset. It was the most perfect day, and my favourite part was the ceremony. It was so special to both of us and when we reminisce about the day, it is the ceremony that comes to the forefront of our minds.
Everyone commented on the uniqueness of our ceremony and how they felt so included throughout. Also how kind and welcoming you were and the general sense of calm you brought to the day, especially for my parents and I (who were nervous wrecks!).
We cannot thank you enough,
Warm Regards,
Orlagh and Ross

Dear Tom, we had planed to have written to you by now and not just be emailing you since we got back from our honeymoon in Kilkenny. Thank you so much for a beautiful ceremony and for all your efforts with all of us on the 28th. We had lots of people saying how lovely the ceremony was and for most of them, this sort of spiritual ceremony was a first. We enjoyed our ceremony and our day and thanks for putting me at ease and making our day such acceleration. We have some nice photos too but only a couple of ourselves from the photographer as yet.

Thanks for all Tom,
Bye for now

I do hope that our paths will cross again in the future and in the meantime we wish you a happy and peaceful Summer. Best Wishes, Aisling and Reuben
