Kildare Nationwide


Hi! I’m Jen (she/her). I’m originally from Dublin, but currently based in Kildare. I am available for ceremonies throughout Ireland, and each ceremony I’m chosen to officiate at really means a lot to me. Thank you for taking the time to read about how I can help you.

If you’re an engaged couple, I wish you every happiness as you plan your big day! As your celebrant and Solemniser (registered to hold legal weddings), my role is first to listen to what your vision for your big day is, and then to help you to create a meaningful ceremony that will truly reflect who you are as individuals and as a couple, because your story deserves more than a cookie-cutter ceremony!

If you’ve recently lost a loved one, I hope you’ll find comfort in your memories of them as you prepare for their funeral or memorial ceremony. I would be honoured to work with you to create a ceremony that reflects who your loved one was, and how they enriched the lives of the people who knew and loved them. I can also support you in building your confidence to write and deliver a eulogy, if you wish.

A little bit about me:
My world revolves around my family, my friends, and my very adorable Bernese Mountain Dogs! I love to travel, and I spent some time living in Vancouver, Canada. I also love aviation; I did a flying lesson before my first driving lesson! When I’m not working, I’m usually chatting with friends over a toastie sambo and a cup of tea, out for a walk with my dogs, or planning a holiday 🙂 My career background is primarily in experiential marketing, digital journalism and audio production, but I’ve also worked in broadcast radio and event production. Being a celebrant and solemniser has brought some truly wonderful people into my life, and I’m very grateful to get to be part of so many milestone moments.

Now for the important stuff that will make or break your decision to work with me:
I’d choose Pixar over Dreamworks, DC over Marvel, Lyons over Barrys, and Keoghs over King or Tayto! My favourite random fact is that Alligators can live up to 100 years, so there’s an increased chance that they will see you later…

Thank you for considering having me as your solemniser and celebrant. I look forward to hearing your story. Feel free to connect with me on Instagram: @CelebrantJen

With love,
