My name is Carol Colman and I am an accredited by the Irish Institute of Celebrants and I am affiliated to the Irish Ethical Celebrants Society.
I completed an eight month practical course with the IIOC. My training consisted of modules covering storytelling, ceremony enhancements, crafting a couples love story, creating and writing a ceremony, ceremony rituals and traditions.
Accredited Celebrants from the Irish Institute of Celebrants are dedicated to promoting the use of ceremony to help couples create a ceremony that reflects the couple’s beliefs, philosophy of life, style, personal stories and personality.
I create beautiful bespoke Wedding Ceremonies, Vow Renewal Ceremonies and Baby Naming Ceremonies. I cover the Leinster region and surrounding counties
When planning your wedding, vow renewal or baby naming ceremony it can be a busy time, I can assist in the planning from the moment you get in touch.
Once you get in touch, I can arrange a face to face meeting which usually takes around 1 to 2 hours. During this consultation I talk through the ceremony from start to finish discussing what ideas you have, who you want to include in your ceremony, what readings you would like, the music you love and ceremony enhancements you would like to include.I have a wide range of resources for couples to use.
Following on from the consultation I will create your ceremony and send the first draft for your review. Leading up to the big day, I go back and forth making any amendments or additions. I usually arrange another call a few weeks before your ceremony to finalise the ceremony. I arrive at the venue well in advance of the ceremony to ensure the ceremony runs smoothly and calm any pre-ceremony nerves.
