A Humanist Celebrant - for a Non-Religious Ceremony

Non-religious ceremonies have become increasingly popular in Ireland. We live in an increasingly diverse and open-minded society, but we still need to mark those significant life events with a suitable ceremony. As a humanist celebrant, accredited by the Humanist Association of Ireland (HAI) I will work with you to create a that sense of occasion for a perfect humanist wedding, naming ceremony or humanist funeral.  Click here to find out more about HAI.

Patrick Cassidy - Celebrant

About Patrick

My name is Patrick Cassidy and I am a Humanist celebrant. I provide fully civil legal weddings as I am a legal wedding solemniser and I am registered on the Register of Solemnisers of Marriage under the terms if the Civil Registration Act – Section 53(3).

As a life coach, I have always been interested in peoples lives and their stories. As a Humanist celebrant, I serve the non-religious community by creating and delivering personalised wedding ceremonies, namings and funerals to celebrate major life events in a way that fits with their views.

Equality and Inclusion

After experiencing life through many different career stages, I understand that it’s important to have someone you trust, that ‘has your back’, always on your side, and ‘gets you’.

As a Humanist Celebrant, I’m passionate about gender equity and inclusion throughout our community and can’t imagine ever saying ‘no’ to any couple regardless of how they identify.

A Wedding Day to Remember

My style is described as being an enthusiastic and engaged celebrant who enjoys both the traditional and unusual ceremony. You can add readings, poetry, music and song into your wedding. You may want to include symbolic rituals such as a Handfasting, a Candle Lighting ceremony, a Sand Ceremony and Drinking from the Quaich – or you may have your own ideas.

These rituals offer a unique visual representation of the coming together of two individual people to become united in marriage. They can allow your ceremony to reflect you, in a way that makes you feel proud and happy.
