Catherine McWade Ceremony expert and legal celebrant

Award Winning Celebrant in Ireland will create a ceremony to remember

Imagine looking back in 10, 20 or 30 years with a big smile, as you remember your incredibly personal and all round amazing wedding ceremony? As an award winning celebrant in Ireland,  I can give you that, and more. I will create a ceremony that is 'one of a kind' - just as you are. I am a HSE registered Interfaith solemniser based in Dublin who works anywhere in Ireland.  I just love helping couples have the very best start to married life with a ceremony that is yours alone.  I am honoured to get the opportunity to create ceremonies for many of life's milestones. As well as weddings, I create and officiate baby naming ceremonies, vow renewals and end of life ceremonies.

2022: MARK & LUCAS

Some info about me

I'm Catherine, a wife and a Mum to a gorgeaus 12 year old girl. We love spending time together and are a great little team! I love music, and I love being outdoors, walking, hiking, exploring.

I know how weddings work! 

I owned and performed in one of Ireland’s leading wedding and corporate bands for about 25 years.  I have also sung at 100s of wedding ceremonies. I have worked with over 1,000 wedding couples over the years and, from that first meeting, through to the wedding day, I love to be witness to the planning process, and to see it all come to fruition on the wedding day.

I trained as an Interfaith Minister with OneSpirit Interfaith Foundation.  Part of this 2 year training involved learning about many different faith paths and also recognising and respecting those who don't have a specific belief.  We were immersed in working closely with people and learning how to hold space through ceremony.  We learnt how to really listen to people, which is key as a celebrant in Ireland. I can perform legal ceremonies for people of all faiths or none, and I am a busy and in demand celebrant all over Ireland. You have a choice in what is included, or indeed, excluded in your ceremony. AND you will be legally married.

There will be much laughter and maybe a few tears, and everyone in the room will feel part of your big day.

Why choose me

On your wedding day, you deserve the very best from all your suppliers.  I will work with you to ensure your ceremony reflects who you are as a couple. Everyone will leave with a feeling of 'wow that was a great ceremony'!.  Most importantly, we will have fun with it and enjoy the process of setting the tone for the rest of the day.


My Services

As a wedding solemniser, I can LEGALLY marry you 7 days a week. Crafting and writing ceremonies for many major life milestones is where my expertise comes in.  See my section on other milestone ceremonies I naming, vow renewals and end of life.  It is a privilege for me to be part of your major life event.

Wedding Ceremonies

Not everyone has a religious belief, and I love working with couples and creating ceremonies that speak of them, including some wonderful rituals, such as handfasting, sand ceremonies and more.

Naming Ceremonies

Are you one of those families that would like an alternative to the traditional Christening? Would you like a ceremony that is unique and personal and inclusive? A Naming Ceremony could be perfect for you.

Vow Renewal

Are you married a long time? Did you ever wonder what it would be like to have your wedding ceremony all over again - but different!!! Well, let's talk then about the possibilities.

End Of Life

I am privileged to accompany families on their grief journey, when saying goodbye to a loved one. I'll go on the journey with you and give your loved one the goodbye they deserve.

Kind words
