My name is Orla and I am a registered Solemniser and Celebrant with Entheos. I provide inclusive legal weddings, funerals, baby welcoming, vow renewals and milestone ceremonies, 7 days a week and nationwide. When I decided to change career, Entheos stood out as the right place for me. They are authentically inclusive and fit with my values and what I want to provide in the world of ceremony. People can include whatever they wish in their ceremony, whether they follow a particular faith path or not.
It’s such a privilege to be part of some of the biggest events to happen in people’s lives. I want to take the stress out of planning the ceremony and provide something that’s unique, personalised and truly memorable. In funeral ceremonies, I believe that everyone should have a funeral that reflects them and their lives. Being able to hold the space and support those who are grieving during a funeral, is a real privilege.

I lived abroad for many years and experienced numerous diverse cultures. It gave me a broader understanding of the world and a greater appreciation for different perspectives. I want to bring that open mindset to all my ceremonies and provide what people really want, without any constraints.

I live in Cork and I’m originally from Tipperary. I’m married to Johnny and have an amazing son Fionn who’s autistic, who has taught me a whole new way of viewing the world, when I view it through his eyes.

I look forward to hearing from you and helping you to feel supported and know that I have everything under control, for whatever type of ceremony you are looking to hold.
