"I just want couples to have a really loving and beautiful day.  I always say to couples that it's an honor to be there with them - it really is! I feel very privileged to be asked to be a part of their day.  I can talk until the cows come home and I'm also a bit of a perfectionist... so I really look after my couples! 
I've been there and done that... I know what its like to be standing at the end of the aisle, waiting to walk in and see my beloved - the nerves, the excitement - it's brilliant!
I've worked behind-the-scene with weddings for a long time.  
We'll laugh, maybe cry, and we'll have an AWESOME ceremony!"

Romy has joined with like-minded, exceptional women, who also share her passion for celebrations.  Not only that, but a mutual love and concern for the Earth and the Environment:

"We are mindful of this beautiful planet that we call home.  The group, called "Our Spiritual Earth" has a core ethos of awareness and love.  One of our mantra's; 
We do not see spiritual practice as separate from life but as essential core part of daily living with ourselves, family, community and friends.
I love this.  I feel it encapsulates the freedom of choice, whilst also highlighting the essence of being kind to others and our Earth".

We are there to guide and support you with expertise, know-how and skill

Within your ceremony, we can include reference to any religion or belief, if you wish, by incorporating readings, prayers, verse, symbolism and rituals.


We perform many different styles of ceremony including;

Spiritual, Religious, Humanistic,

Non-Religious or Secular ceremonies. 

We are confident that you will be more than happy with the final outcome, and feel that our passion, sincerity and many years of experience will show through into your ceremony.  


As your Registered Solemniser of Marriages & Celebrant, our goal is to meet your wishes in creating and officiating your Wedding, Elopement, Vow Renewal, Naming or Memorial / Funeral Ceremony.  It will not only be meaningful to you both, but also to everyone attending.

All of our ceremonies are created and written with absolute love.  There is nothing that compares to the amazing feeling that we have being asked to be a part of such an important time in peoples’ lives.  In our ceremonies, there is emotion – we do get emotional.  
We officiate ceremonies – nothing about our ceremonies is a performance.

A Beautiful Ceremony...


First established in 2009, in Dublin, our main aim was to create a very professional group of expert, dedicated, reliable and honest celebrants.  Now very well established, highly recognized and multi-award winning - "A Beautiful Ceremony" has proved its place as a founding organisation for Celebrants & Officiants.

We are

Registered Solemnisers of Marriages

in association with Our Spiritual Earth.  

We believe in providing a ceremony that recognizes the unique personalities of our couples/families, being sensitive to their needs, wishes, values, philosophical and spiritual beliefs and cultural backgrounds.  We believe not to discriminate on the basis of gender, race, religion, philosophy of life, ethnicity, national origin, age, disability, or sexual orientation.
Offering our services gives couples/families the opportunity to have a ceremony which encompasses rites and rituals which perhaps cannot be achieved from other organizations.  This benefits clients by giving more available options and choices.
Our goal is to be known for officiating the most heartfelt ceremonies, such as weddings, namings, vow renewals, commitment, funeral/celebration of life, and memorial services.  Celebrating significant moments in the lives of couples, families and individuals.
Our Spiritual Earth is recognised through the GRO (HSE) as a Religious organisation.  For our couples getting legally married in Ireland, when giving Notice of Intent to Marry to the HSE, the "Religious" option will need to be chosen.  Ceremonies are Multi-faith, and can be inclusive of spirituality, faith or none.
