I do Marry U is a wedding celebrant service that is centered on YOUR wishes. We design and deliver custom wedding ceremonies based on your dreams and desires, to make sure you have the ceremony that you always dreamed of. We welcome all your questions and look forward to being able to provide you with the information you need, so please get in touch and make your dream wedding a reality.

Weddings are about choice, we do not believe that you should be restricted by your choice of venue, the content of your wedding ceremony or even the time of day at which you want to be married. This is a personal and personalised service that guarantees YOUR wedding ceremony YOUR way.

Your celebrants are IIOC accredited celebrants. Kathy was awarded the grade of distinction in her accreditation by the Irish Institute of Celebrants (IIOC) in 2016. Linda also received a distinction graduating top of her class in 2018. Both Kathy and Linda are looking forward to meeting couples from Ireland and across the water and working with them to craft their perfect ceremony.

You can read more about Kathy and Linda here and see what inspired them to become celebrants here.

I do Marry U may strike you as a bit of a strange name for a wedding celebrant service, but we really wanted to convey the message that this is a service that is directed by the couples who wish to engage a personal service. It is as traditional as you want it to be (the ‘I do’ bit, referring to the traditional vows) and yet up to date (in the use of text speak ‘U’). U is a capital because you are the most important part of the creation of your ceremony.

Choosing how you are going to publicly proclaim your love is an exciting time and it is important that you get it right, and that means right for you. This is different for everyone so please make sure that you and your partners’ wishes are front and centre.

If you are getting married in Ireland, then you must conform to Irish Law. For a marriage to be legal here, it must be officiated by a Registrar of Marriage and can only take place in a licensed building. You must give at least three months’ notice of intention to wed and you must do so with the HSE. For more information on the legalities please click here.

If you chose to have a wedding ceremony in addition to the legal civil registrar service you can have your ceremony, with all of your guests, where ever you chose to (this is where I come in). You can get married on the side of a mountain, in a woods, a pub, club or boat, even a castle or hotel, the choice is yours. Just remember I cannot guarantee the weather-it is Ireland after all!

Remember, it should be your wedding your way. The freedom of venue extends to freedom of dress and ceremony enhancements. It is about you as a couple and the celebration of your love.

Please do get in touch if you have any questions or queries, it is really important to me that you have YOUR wedding YOUR way. I am always open to engaging with you-it costs nothing to talk!

We had the pleasure of meeting Kathy at Pairc Uí Caoimhe, Wedding Expo In January 2019. We both instantly warmed to her. We had agreed to send our wedding details dates etc., to confirm availability and lucky for us Kathy was available to perform our Wedding ceremony in Bunnyconnellans.

From day 1 she went above and beyond to make our day as easy and special as possible.

We met up a few times for chats and tea and it was from these meet ups we really got to see just how truly dedicated Kathy was..

Kathy sent us a proof of our ceremony and I can honestly say it was almost perfect, she really got us as a couple which we both thought was extremely important.

I wanted to sing for my husband to be on the day but i was just too nervous but Kathy was not letting it go 😁. She came with a suggestion for me to pre record the song and that was all I had to do, Kathy arranged it all with Bunnys and it was played on the day just before I walked up the Isle. I was so proud and happy. I still got to sing on my wedding day and without Kathy this would not have been possible❤

Our ceremony was beautiful and we had so many family members come up to us after to say just how stunning it was.

We got to include all our nieces and nephews with Kathy’s help.

I could honestly go on and on about just how wonderful we found Kathy on our Weddibg Day. It’s a day we will never forget and it has a lot to do with all the help and advise that Kathy gave us.

She just went above and beyond for our special day.

I can highly recommend Kathy from “I do marry u”. A special Lady who provides an amazing service ❤

A wedding in one of Cork’s premier locations, the beautiful and historic Hayfield Manor set the scene for this couple. This was a small wedding due to restrictions but the smaller guest list was so special, making for an intimate gathering that matched the couples wishes. Thank you for the wonderful review you provided for Kathy.

We cannot begin to describe how amazing Kathy is as a wedding celebrant. She is a true professional, warm, caring and really enthusiastic about what she does. From the moment we met her, we clicked right away and felt so comfortable in her presence. Before meeting Kathy we weren’t really certain what format we wanted our ceremony would take. Kathy asked us all the right questions and used our feedback to create a wonderful personal story for our ceremony which captivated our guests and received so many compliments. She was so quick to respond to us and put together the ceremony with complete ease and always checking in with us to see if we were happy with the process. The ceremony was simply beautiful, well delivered, and had the perfect tone. We felt like Kathy became part of our little family for the day and my Mother still talks about how lovely she was! We both thoroughly enjoyed working with you Kathy, and couldn’t be more satisfied with the end product – really, really superb!
