Where do we begin? 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
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
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
Hi Yvonne, Thank you so
