aMAZING STUFF VERY COOL PEOPLE SAY ABOUT ME

testimonial-element Testimonials
"Our wedding ceremony made our wedding day. We aren't religious or humanist but we did, of course, want to have a wedding celebration so we placed our trust in Ronan to deliver something similar for us on our wedding day. Unbeknownst to us, Ronan had made thorough preparations, having spoken in detail with our friends and family in the leadup to the wedding, and it was this preparation that helped bring our lives as individuals, and as a couple, to life for everyone on the day. The traditional candlelighting, ring-exchange and kiss were a part of the ceremony but it was the many quirks and quips relating to different times in our lives that made it really personal and really special. The celebration was fun and interactive, which put us at ease, and so many guests commented on how much they enjoyed it and felt they were a real part our celebration as a result. All in all, our wedding celebration as prepared and hosted by Ronan, made our special day absolutely perfect."

"Ronan provided a great service for our castle wedding in August 2017. He met us a few months prior to discuss the outline for the ceremony; it was soon clear that he was highly attuned to the requirements of a couples’ big day. Working with us over the coming weeks, he developed a template for the ceremony, addressing essential details (timing, flow, cues, elements of punctuation etc.) that we would never have considered. The end result was an occasion that was unique and satisfying for us, and thoroughly engaging for guests. He is an adept public speaker, providing content that is tastefully personal and light-hearted. We are extremely grateful for his efforts and would highly recommend Ronan’s jovial but professional celebrant style as an alternative to the conventional ceremony."

"Ronan added hugely to the day bringing humour, a personal touch and a warmth to the wedding ceremony we had never seen at any wedding before. Ronan's research on us as a couple and the warm surprises and humour he brought to the ceremony was a joy to behold and be involved in. His wit, wise words and professionalism added greatly to the day. Would highly recommend Ronan as a wedding celebrant."

Ronan absolutely made our wedding day unforgettable! We eloped to Ireland from the United States and had an idea of where we wanted to have the ceremony but considering we have never been to Ireland we were unsure of the area and if it was even possible. Ronan went above and beyond! He went to Howth months before and picked out the spot on the cliff where we got married, brought chairs for us to sit on that day (something we didn’t even think about) and even learned to play our song in a matter of weeks before the ceremony. He also played two other songs that were wonderful additions to the ceremony and sincerely made our wedding that much more memorable!! He was so helpful and considerate even before our trip there too! He facetimed us multiple times before to talk about the day and provided us with local restaurants and pub recommendations! We really can’t say enough or adequately express the gratitude we have for him making our nuptials truly remarkable. It was better than we could ever have dreamt and that’s largely because of what an excellent job that he did! P.S. He’s also really funny and a brilliant musician!

We were recently married by Ronan in Killarney. It was an outdoor gathering & Ronan was the most captivating celebrant. He had a very calm yet confident approach in the preparation stages which really made us feel at ease. On our wedding day, the celebration went off effortlessly & seamlessly. I don’t think I’ve ever felt more at ease in my life as I did on our wedding day. Our guests complimented his innovative & refreshing style. He adds in lovely personal touches & funny little anecdotes too, which made the ceremony so unique to Mario & I as a couple....it was so relaxed & joyful, it was exactly what we wanted. Thank you so much Ronan,

"Ronan was a brilliant celebrant at the wedding in August. He was very relaxed and he put everyone at ease. He was especially good at telling stories about the couple and his sense of humour enlivened the ceremony."

"The best wedding ceremony we've been to and it was our luck that we were part of it, would highly recommend Ronan as a celebrant"

"We attended a friend’s wedding in December 2015. It was quite different to the typical church weddings we had previously been at. Without a doubt one of the main highlights was the couples choice of Celebrant – Ronan Kearney. He conducted the proceedings confidently and enthusiastically with just the right balance of humour to lighten the occasion for the happy couple. It was obvious he had done plenty of preparation for the day by the fact everything ran so smoothly. He met with the bride and groom on a number of occasions before the big day to get to know them and also to get an understanding of what they wanted for their ceremony. He told some great stories about funny and happy memories the couple had, and had everyone in stitches with a story about an ill-fated trip abroad. This was by far a more personal, intimate and entertaining ceremony than any church or humanist weddings we had attended. We would highly recommend Ronan to anyone looking for a unique and special celebrant for their special day."

I just wanted to day a massive thank you for our ceremony last month.  The amount of people who have said to us that it was unlike any other ceremony they have ever been do was incredible. The whole thing was so engaging, relaxed and personal. It did feel like you really got to know us individually and as a couple.  Also, you made us both feel so at ease in the build up to the ceremony on the day. 

There was minimal planning on our part and you just took it all off our hands and I can honestly say you nailed it. There is absolutely nothing I would have changed. I know I was a little tense and nervous coming up to the wedding and wanted everything planned to a T but you were so chilled out that rubbed off on both of us. I had no worries about not planning every single second of the ceremony as I had complete trust in you.

You are  a true professional at what you do and I would 100% recommend you to anyone who was getting married.  I think my friends are a bit gutted they have already got married and can’t get in touch with you!! 

I’ll be back in touch when we are renewing our vows!!

Ronan is an absolute joy to work with – we could not be more pleased with the entire experience and highly recommend his services!
 
We initially contacted a few celebrants for our wedding ceremony in Dublin and after having a video call with Ronan, we felt completely at ease and knew we were in the best hands for such a special and important occasion. The circumstances of our event were a bit unique in that we elected to have two weddings since our families were so internationally spread out. This was the second wedding and we wanted to be sure that is was just as special as the first and really to celebrate the fact that so many of our loved ones had traveled so far to be together that evening. 
 
Ronan understood exactly what we were looking for and created the most beautiful wedding ceremony I could have imagined. It brings me to tears just to think back on how he was able to speak to eloquently and genuinely to our relationship while incorporating our families into the speech. His process of taking the time to contact a select amount of friends and family in order to put together the speech resulted in the most wonderful surprise for my husband and I on our special day. He really took all of the little details of our lives and put them together to tell a story of love of happiness that brought an entire room of people together who had just met for the first time. He really set the tone for the entire evening thereafter – everyone was bonded over the different aspect of the speech and connected on the common ground of the two people they were there to celebrate. 
 
He’s kind, thorough and incredibly well spoken with the perfect sense of humor to bring it all together. A fantastic combination for an remarkable orator. 
 

We cannot thank Ronan enough for everything and really do recommend that anyone be in touch with him for their next special occasion!
