Getting Married - We now do Weddings!
Yes its an interesting mix IT and weddings but I have just been certified as a Humanist Association of Ireland Celebrant and a HSE Certified Solemniser. This means I can perform legal marriages in Ireland including the HSE Paperwork on the day.
How did that happen?
Well I have been a member of the HAI for several years and there is a shortage of Celebrants I was asked if I was interested as my background and experience was what they were looking for.
I applied and passed the initial interviews then worked with a panel of Celebrants observing at lots of Weddings around the country which was great and also attending a naming ceremony and a funeral to see the work involved in preparing and delivering the services.
I have to say I was very impressed with the professionalism of my Mentors and working with them only made me more eager to help people with the ceremonies weather it be joining a new couple, welcoming a new member into their community or helping to celebrate the life lived and the fond memories of someone who has passed on.

PS - I will still be doing the day job (s)
