From first contact with Ailish
From first contact with Ailish we knew right away she was the celebrant we wanted to facilitate this very special wedding ceremony. In her first phone call with us we could feel the warmth and compassion in her nature that translated through all our journey together.
When meeting in person Ailish displayed an easy personable nature that was kind and sensitive to emotional subjects while still enjoying a laugh and banter between us. Her questions captured the best of us and drew out conversations about our relationship without difficulty. We were delighted with how Ailish artistically formed the ceremony script on the back of these conversations and felt she had gained real insight to us. It is no easy task to delve into the details of a couples relationship ( the ups and the downs!) whilst not being intrusive, holding a space for us a as couple to feel safe and comfortable in expressing private affairs.
In the lead up to the wedding work was very busy for us and we felt bad we hadn’t finalized the script early enough but Ailish never showed any stress and on the day she was calm and composed checking in with the nervous groom and all those who played parts in the ceremony.
Ailish facilitated so many of our personal requests including having our beloved dog as part of the ceremony! It very much felt like a reflection of us and we wouldn’t’ve have changed a thing. Many of our guests commented on it being one of the loveliest services they have attended! One guest was even wistful he hadn’t had her for his recent wedding.
We received a beautiful detailed email from her post ceremony and it really shows just how much care and thought she puts into her work and how she is considerate of couples even after the day has passed. We really highly recommend her and are so very grateful she was our celebrant in helping us cross this special threshold.
