The Entheos Ireland team is growing and diversifying! All of our celebrants are also on the register of Solemnisers and can hold your full ceremony (including the legal parts), in your chosen venue any day of the week.

Meet Alison

Alison Driscoll

My ceremonies are relaxed, personal celebrations of life and love. As a poet, I have a way with words, weaving your story and your emotions into the ceremony in a natural way. I am offering laid back ceremonies that really capture your personality and your values. I’m based in Cork but travels across Ireland to deliver weddings, naming days, vow renewals and funerals. I love to settle in with a good book, cup of tea and a dog to unwind. I am chilled out and approachable, a great listener and exceptionally organised. I am a daughter, partner, friend, sister, colleague and celebrant and I love to spend time in all of my roles.

Meet Barbara

Barbara Ryan

I began my joyful celebrancy journey almost by chance – good friends were getting married and I offered to write a story about their love to read out during the ceremony. The idea was to give them a gift to personalise their ceremony and to give a snapshot of their love and intimacy to the guests at the wedding. Afterwards, I was hooked! It showed me that what is one of the oldest traditions in the world – marriage – could be fresh and new, heartfelt and genuine and transformative for the couple. I feel incredibly honoured to be a solemniser with Entheos Ireland. The ethos of inclusivity, the spark within and always, always making space for those who need it define who I am as a celebrant. I would love to chat to you more about your day, and see if I am the right fit for you!

Meet Ciara

Ciara O Connor

My name is Ciara O Connor (Ní Chonchubhair) and I live in Waterford, Ireland with my partner Daithí, our dogs Oíche and Ocras and our beautiful bees.I speak fluent English, Gaeilge and I’d give French a go too! I am a trained primary school teacher and have worked with children and young adults for over ten years in the arts, in schools and in outreach literacy programs. I have a passion for writing and reading and I love helping budding storytellers to unlock their imagination and realise their potential. I write bilingual poetry and short stories and I love getting the cúpla focal in wherever I can. Celebrating Milestones of all kinds is my passion.Whether it be a celebration of the newest little family member, a wedding or the renewal of vows, a public declaration of hope and love is always a winner in my books. Our lives are filled with ups and downs and unexpected meanders. These are all a part of the puzzle that makes us human. I love learning about the importance of these milestones and helping to celebrate them with friends and family in a truly unique way! I truly believe that a ceremony should burst at the seams with the personality of those it is about. This is why I became a celebrant. If you imagine it, then we’ll make it happen! No ceremony is too big or too small. I weave ancient traditions with brand new ideas to create the day you’ve always dreamed of.

Meet Linda

Linda Foley

Hello, my name is Linda Foley and I’m here to help you on your way to creating your perfect ceremony! I’m a Celebrant, a wife, a mother to two wonderful boys and a dog called Chappie. I’m based in Southern Ireland in Cork but travel nationwide and overseas to celebrate love in all forms. I’m passionate about creating a safe space for all couples in all their beautiful forms, whether you’re a Bride & Groom, Bride & Bride, Groom & Groom, this is a place that welcomes equality, diversity & inclusivity. When I was getting married in 2011 my husband and I were already proud parents to our first born and it was really important to include him in our ceremony. Having a Celebrant led ceremony gave us the freedom to include our little five year old which was of such importance to us. I absolutely love officiating ceremonies where we can include the most special little ones in your life and create memories you will be able to remember forever as a family. As a proud member of Entheos Ireland, I’m privileged to be in a position to offer non religious or religious ceremonies ensuring everyone’s beliefs are included. Your ceremony will be personal to you, it will be romantic, joyful, modern and most importantly fun! I’m a HSE Registered Solemniser and can conduct fully legal ceremonies, 7 days of the week. I look forward to chatting with you.
