Yvonne Griffin is an Officiant of the Spiritualist Union of Ireland. She is registered as a solemniser with the General Registrars Office.
We can’t recommend Yvonne enough for marrying us recently on 8th April 2023.
From the day we booked our wedding ceremony with Spiritual Ceremonies and got assigned Yvonne, she was attentive, responsive and a pleasure to deal with.
She went through the ceremony with us in full, encouraged us to include or exclude as much or as little as we wanted and worked with us on the edits until we had the ceremony finalized.
On the day Yvonne was professional but also warm and calming and the ceremony flowed flawlessly.
Lots of our guest commented how lovely and personal the ceremony and Yvonne was. Lots had never been to a wedding outside a church but only had good things to say about the ceremony and Yvonne.
Thanks again Yvonne for everything!
We had the absolute pleasure of having Yvonne as our Celebrant on the day of our wedding. From the first initial Zoom meeting with Yvonne back in 2021 we knew she was the person we wanted to marry us. She was so warm, open and welcoming from the very beginning. She took time to get to know us as a couple and answer questions we may have had. Yvonne made everything super easy, efficient and stress free which is exactly what you need on your wedding day! She guided us through the ceremony, giving us so many beautiful ideas on what we could include in our special day. She gave us the opporunity to brings our own vows, poems, readings, and music to name but a few into the ceremony. She gave us plenty of opportunities to involves our nearest and dearest in the wedding ceremony and made them all feel so at ease on the day. Every single person we spoke to have commented on how amazing the ceremony was, how unique it was and how they had never seen anything like it! We are over the moon that we met Yvonne and had her involved in our very special day. If you are thinking about having a celebrant at your wedding, Yvonne is the one for you!! Thank you so much Yvonne for all of your help, patience and guidence over the last year.
Many many thanks for being the solemniser at our marriage ceremony. The humour, knowledge, and perspective that you brought to the ceremony were all greatly appreciated, both in the planning phases and at the actual event. We often look at the photos and videos of our special day and are incredibly grateful for the part that you played in it!
Many many many thanks!
All the best,
Dan and Marion
From our first meeting with Yvonne, she had been so reassuring, professional, thoughtful, considerate and amazing at guiding us through one of the biggest moments of our lives.
Yvonne helped us create a ceremony that was so personal, full of love, laughter and sentiment and it was evident that she was the special element that brought it all together. We have had so many people commenting on how great she was and what a great story teller she is also.
We can’t thank Yvonne enough for being such an incredible support to us and she will always be remembered for how special she was on our special day.

It was lovely to work with Yvonne, she took the time and care to make our ceremony so special, personal and memorable. We would highly recommend her to any couple for their special day. Thank you Yvonne!
Where do we begin? Yvonne is a born natural at what she does. From the moment she got in touch, we knew we were in excellent hands as her warm, gentle, yet reassuring style of communication immediately put us at ease and looking back now, she exceeded all our expectations of what we had wanted in an officiator. Even in the lead up to the big day, her advice about keeping everything as genuine and personal to us as possible was the best advice we could have received. On the day itself then, we honestly couldn’t have asked for a more magical and perfectly delivered ceremony. Yvonne has a very special way of speaking to a room as if she knows them personally and she speaks with such ease, letting things unfold as they should; never forcing anything. Yvonne is also not afraid to add a touch of humour here and there which, let me tell you, is definitely needed in order to put guests and those being married at ease! After our wedding, all our friends and family said it was the best wedding ceremony they had ever been to / watched. Even our Zoom guests commented on how included they felt as Yvonne so cleverly weaved them into different aspects of the ceremony, ensuring they were referred to often throughout. For myself and my husband then (still getting used to the new term!), we can honestly say the ceremony was the highlight of our entire wedding experience as it was officiated in a way that actually made it so fun and enjoyable, yet at the same time, very romantic and special.
We would choose Yvonne again in a heartbeat. Anyone who is lucky enough to have her officiate their wedding or any other spiritual ceremony can be rest assured that they are not just in good hands, but in very thoughtful, caring and exceptionally competent hands.
Go raibh míle maith agat Yvonne.

We decided to go with spiritual ceremonies after meeting one of their celebrants at a wedding fair back last year. With postponing and changing dates Yvonne Griffin came our way and we both cannot thank her enough for everything she did for us in the lead up and on the day. Yvonne is amazing at her job and we cannot recommend her enough. Due to Covid we had to meet via a Skype call in which we just talked and chatted, asked and answered a few questions and from that very moment we knew Yvonne was going to be so lovely to work with. We were in contact via email drafting up our ceremony Yvonne had some lovely ideas and great advice and made it all so easy. Our date was 9th January but when restrictions were imposed again on Tuesday 22nd Dec we had our wedding rescheduled in less than 4 hours and Yvonne didn’t bat an eyelid at saying yes even when it meant she had to drive all the way from Dublin to Sligo accompanied by her mother. She kept in contact with little text messages, phone calls and emails and never were we nervous about the ceremony. And when the day came 29.12.2020 she was there to greet Darren and then myself and the ceremony was more than we could have asked for absolutely perfect in ever way. All our 25 guests commented on how beautiful it was. We would highly recommend Yvonne Griffin to any couple looking for a kind, relaxed, dedicated and professional celebrant.
Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts Yvonne for everything x

Our wedding solemniser was Yvonne Griffin and to describe her as perfect would be doing her a disservice.
From the moment we met with her, we were in absolutely no doubt that we wanted her for our wedding. She exudes a real warmth and genuinely cares about you. We would never have even thought of including all the little touches she suggested, and each made the ceremony that more perfect. She tailored the ceremony to perfectly fit our wants and made it extremely personal, which in its own way was quite unique.
After speaking with our wedding guests after the ceremony, every single one commented that they had never experienced a ceremony like it, from the humour, to the personal touches, to he way it was so inclusive and all had a special word to say about Yvonne.
I would like to thank Yvonne from the bottom of my heart for making our wedding day more perfect than we could even have imagined and would urge anyone about to tie the knot to do all you can to try and get her to be the solemniser on your special day
Thank you so much for being part of the best day of our lives and for helping us make history. All of our guests loved the ceremony, we have received so many complements that are all due to you and your fabulous team.
