Minister Kathryn Cashman Registered Solemniser

Munster, Nationwide


I have done many and varied things in my life.

I am a mother of four and I live on an organic farm in East Cork with my husband Gerard.

I have been a Nurse and a professional wedding photographer for 24 years.

(Now retired ) I now devote myself to creating meaningful wedding ceremonies. Celebrating and officiating a wedding with all of the love, grace and magic it deserves brings me great joy.

I offer a personal & legal alternative to Church or Civil Weddings in Cork, Kerry, Waterford, Limerick and surrounding counties in Munster.

Planning a wedding is exciting and your ceremony is at the heart of your marriage. It anchors your vision for your married life together.

So I take great care to work with you to create a ceremony that reflects your values and beliefs. It might have a theme, such as family, romance, Celtic, traditional, or nature-inspired.

It may include rituals that are meaningful to you and appropriate to your ceremony, such as the lighting of a candle, a gift or roses, a hand-fasting, tying or blessing of your hands, the cup of life, and many others.

As Interfaith Minister, I can create your ceremony in any style: such as religious, spiritual but non-religious, pagan, humanistic, mixed faith or other.

I would love to hear your ideas and I will guide you through everything.

I am HSE Registered Solemnises, this means we can Legally Solemnise your marriage.

Putting a ceremony together takes a lot of care and commitment.

I always strive for excellence and want to be the Best Celebrant possible for you and deliver the most beautiful and memorable wedding ceremony on your 'Big Day'.

My phone number is 086 8166691 if you would like to have a chat anytime.

Email or I will be very happy to set up a zoom call.

Look forward to meeting you.

Thank you for considering me to be your celebrant.

With kind regards

Hi Kathryn, Just a quick note to say thank you so much for our beautiful ceremony. You were honestly the star of the day and everyone has been commenting on what a lovely ceremony it was and how they felt like you were talking to each of them individually. My mum is disappointed she forgot to thank you before you left. All of my friends have mentioned how lovely you were. Honestly the ceremony was the best part of my day and I would just like to thank you so much for that. It was so warm and not too serious, and most importantly not boring just like we imagined. Have a great Christmas Kathryn and I'd love to say we would love to work with you again but Id say thay doesn't happen much in your line of work ????. Oh and fab work with the pronunciation of his surname, made his day ????

Emily Barry

Married on 12th Nov 2021

From the moment we started our wedding planning there was never any doubt who would marry us. Kathryn was always going to marry us. We aren’t church goers so it was never felt like an option for us. Catherine made the whole process so easy from start to finish. She made the whole experience easy and stress free. She sat down with the both of us before the wedding and together with us she made the ceremony for us we would never have envisioned. COVID was in full swing at the time but this didn’t stop Kathryn professionalism and drive to create our amazing day.She even kept a secret about a surprise visitor we had coming on the day. I couldn’t recommend Kathryn enough and If anyone would like to contact me personally I’m sure Kathryn will pass on my details and I can sing her praises personally. She’s a fantastic Lady with a wonderful drive for what she does.Thanks for making our day the most special day for us both to date x

Masi and Paolo

Married on 27th Aug 2021

We found Kathryn online, and not through recommendation because both of us are migrants here and we do not know many people in Cork. But we were so thrilled to be wedded by her. She was so calm, professional, and made the wedding ceremony a joy rather than something stressful. She paid attention to our cultural differences, and her pace of performing the ceremony was attuned to audience. We cannot recommend her more.

Teresa & Tadhg

Married on 21st Aug 2021

We couldn’t recommend Kathryn more highly. She was such a pleasure to deal with while organising our wedding. She really listened to what we wanted and made our ceremony so special and personal. She also made the two of us feel so comfortable on the day. I have been at lots of wedding ceremonies and I have to say Kathryn really is exceptional at what she does. We couldn’t have been happier with our wedding ceremony and we have wonderful memories of it thanks to Kathryn!

Sinéad & Martin

Married on 19th Aug 2021

We booked Kathryn all the way back in December 2018 after our engagement in September 2018 but we were only finally able to have our dream day two weeks ago! From the beginning Kathryn was fantastic to deal with, such a warm and sincere person. We had to reschedule a few times due to covid and personal family circumstances and Kathryn was so accommodating. Kathryn created a beautifully warm and meaningful ceremony for my husband Martin and I which everyone spoke so highly of afterwards. Id definately recommend Kathryn for anyone looking for a HSE registered celebrant for their ceremony, you won't regret it.

Elizabeth and Sean

Married on 5th Aug 2021

Kathryn was wonderful support and gave us great guidance on how to create our own ceremony. It is a minefield and she took her time to explain all different aspects we could include on our wedding day. Supplied us with poems, stories and blessing but helped make it our own.

David & Olive Beecher/Flynn

Married on 31st Jul 2021

Kathryn was amazing from the get-go,she made the whole process of planning our ceremony so relaxed&enjoyable!!She put together the most meaningful ceremony for us,but in saying that Kathryn left us use alot of our own ideas too.On how we wanted to involve our family&literally just how we both envisioned our wedding ceremony as a couple.If we had to pick one word to describe our Ceremony it would have to be"PERFECT",as that's exactly what it was.Though there was naturally a few tears shed by all(Happy one's mind you)we also had a laugh!!Everyone was blown away by just how beautiful the whole ceremony was from start to finish,some saying it would be a day they would never forget.We will be forever grateful to Kathryn for being a huge part of our wedding day,we wouldn't change a second of it!!

Shauna & Mike

Married on 17th Oct 2020

We asked Kathryn to be the minister at our marriage ceremony as we wanted to have a more relaxed wedding day but at the same time wanted to ensure that our vows and the whole ceremony were as special for us and our friends and family as could be. Kathryn was an excellent choice in this regard and made sure that the ceremony was an easy going affair whilst also being very poignant and memorable for us. I would definitely recommend Kathryn to any couple that are looking to break from traditional (and dare I say it, dreary!) church based weddings." Shauna and MikeResponse from Minister Kathryn Cashman Registered SolemniserDear Shauna and Mike Happy New year to you and your family and friends I so enjoyed your wedding and thank you so very much for asking me to with you on your special day.Kathryn

Susan and Jerry

Married on 22nd Aug 2020

Kathryn came highly recommended to us by a friend who had met her at another wedding. She said it was the best wedding ceremony she had ever attended. Because of Covid 19 regulations we had to cut back on our numbers so we had a mini micro wedding with just family in my parents garden instead of the church and hotel we had booked for the larger group. Contacting Kathryn was honestly the best decision we made. We were able to go ahead with our wedding. Kathryn,listened to our every word and helped us through and gave us everything we wanted in our wedding ceremony. We hope to have a vow renewal with Kathryn in the future and have all our friends there. Kathryn holds such a special place in our hearts for the role she played at our wedding. We highly recommend her. Susan and Jerry. Response from Minister Kathryn Cashman Registered SolemniserHello Susan and Jerry Thank you for your lovely review. Please keep in touch and send me some photos so that I can keep you in my heart. Regards Kathryn

Jane & Graham

Married on 1st Aug 2020

We were meant to do the big Irish wedding in June with Kathryn as our celebrant but Covid arrived and stopped that. However, we decided that we wanted to go ahead with a very small outdoor ceremony when it started to become clear that the big wedding wouldnt be happening for the foreseeable future. Kathryn was absolutely fantastic and so flexible and professional. Nothing was too big an ask and she made our day so special and relaxed and we loved every second of it. Hopefully next year we will do the large wedding and have a small ceremony with Kathryn again. The 18 people at the wedding all commented on how lovely and genuine Kathryn was and how she made the ceremony very enjoyable and personal. I would absolutely recommend Kathryn to every couple, she was fantastic. Jane & Graham.Response from Minister Kathryn Cashman Registered SolemniserJane and Graham We got there ! And you are Married It was such a lovely day and thank you for asking me to be part of it.With Kind regards Kathryn

Shannan & Nathan

Married on 20th Sep 2019

"Kathryn is wonderful! We were abroad while we planned the wedding which wasn't a problem as Kathryn made it easy to do everything via email so that we could still create a ceremony that felt very personal to us. Our wedding day was quite windy and we had a planned a candle lighting ceremony - Kathryn switched things around to make sure that it would all work and that we didn't have to worry at all. She also made sure to come and meet us both before the ceremony and run through things. As well as addressing all important family members. Several 20th September 2019people commented on how personal the ceremony was compared to other wedding they attended. Kathryn made the whole process easy and it was a joy to have her marry us! Thank you Kathryn!"Stay safe, Shannan and Nathan

Married on 6th Apr 2019

Having Kathryn as our minister was a no brainer for us. Kathryn is a lovely lady she is very considerate and gets to know you as a couple before putting together your ceremony. For our ceremony we also had a priest come and give a blessing and Kathryn couldn't of been more accommodating she incorporated this into our ceremony and told us it's your day so it's all about what ye want. She is very understanding and such an easy person to work with and get along with. Kathryn made our day so special and unique to us. She put a lot of time and detail into her ceremony so it was personal to us the couple. Since our wedding we have been told by our guests that it was one of the nicest ceremonies they have been to and so professional yet personal at the same time. We honestly couldn't fault Kathryn she is amazing at what she does and an amazing, kind and lovely lady.

Danny and Rachel Duncan

Married on 14th Mar 2019

Kathryn was exactly what we were looking for. We are from California, and were traveling to Europe for the first time. We found her by browsing online and reading reviews. All of the reviews were so awesome, so we decided to contact her. First off- we met Kathryn over email and phone- and planned everything that way. She is honestly such a lovely and kind person- that shines through even the emails. We didn't really know exactly where we wanted to do the ceremony. It was just the two of us- so we wanted it super simple and meaningful. Kathryn had several ideas for us. We were able to explore different spots online and when we arrived to Ardmore pick one out. She was able to bring along a friend for the photography- who was just as lovely as she was. The two of them together was perfect- we could not have asked for a better duo. Kathryn went above and beyond- helping us with the type of ceremony, vows, tying of the knot, and beautiful paperwork representing the day. She provided us with exactly what we were looking for - simple, meaningful, comfortable, beautiful backdrop, and memories we will cherish forever. We can't thank you enough Kathryn!!!!Response from Minister Kathryn Cashman Registered SolemniserDanny and Rachel It was a pleasure to have been apart of you wedding day.Yes it sure was special and mystical on the cliffs of Ardmore on a wild March day with the Celtic Sea as a backdrop. I thank you so very much for your lovely words they mean so much to me ???? I hope you enjoyed The Wild Atlantic way and celebrated St.Patricks Day in true Irish tradition?

Married on 7th Sep 2018

We were delighted with Kathryn in every way. We found her very professional and efficient but also very warm and personable. She is a very perceptive woman and from our earliest communications I felt she 'got us" and the first draft of the ceremony she wrote for us was excellent so much so we barely changed it! She provided lovely ideas to make the day so memorable. She even wrote out our personal vows on beautiful cards as lovely keepsakes. As she undertook the ceremony with us you could clearly see she was putting her heart into it. She loves what she does and it shows! So many of our family and friends commented on her and how special she made the ceremony. I have already recommended her to three friends who are planning weddings!Response from Minister Kathryn Cashman Registered SolemniserThank you Michelle for your lovely testimonial. I wish you and Ger the very best in your married life. With love Kathryn

Michael & Morgan Parker

Married on 2nd Sep 2018

Morgan and I set out to have a "get away/destination" wedding. We scoured the areas for a good venue and minister. In our searches we found a perfect venue Bantry House, in Bantry Ireland and Kathryn, the perfect minister. We planned our destination wedding from thousands of miles away (Portland, OR) and it wouldn't have been possible without Kathryns help and guidance, reassuring us through our doubts and always answering our questions. The time difference was never a problem, Kathryn always made sure to work with our schedules, we were impressed. Kathryn, performed our ceremony flawlessly. Helping me (the groom) with all the loose ends on the big day while also getting her own setup finished. She made the ceremony, special as well as warm and heartfelt. Pulling from both Morgan and I's feelings from one another and the immense support our family had for both of us. She included local wedding traditions to give us the full experience of getting married in Ireland. I personally dont think our destination wddding would have been possible without Kathryns help, we appreciated everything she did for us and were really impressed by her performance.

From our first meeting with Kathryn, I totally relaxed as I knew she would enable us to have a beautiful, intimate and personalised ceremony. That was exactly the feedback and praise we got for Kathryn after the ceremony, with lots of people commenting how special and authentic it was and confessions of a few tears being shed! She was a calming, professional and warm presence throughout. After our initial meeting she created lots of options for the ceremony, and it was so easy to pick what suited us. On the day itself she put everyone at ease and just went with the flow, allowing that space for the beautiful unexpected moments to shine through. I think this is what most impressed me and I think what enables her to offer ceremonies that really fit and reflect different couples. I can't imagine my wedding day without Kathryn and I will forever treasure the memories she helped us create, I really believe no one could have done it like her. I recommend her unreservedly.Response from Minister Kathryn Cashman Registered SolemniserMari-Clair & Liam .... what can I say ...thank you for your lovely review. It was such a pleasure being the one who married you and we really got to know each other over the few months leading up to your wedding with emails to and from Australia. I think the Aussies enjoyed the ceremony as you really did put your own personal stamp on it that made it so very special. Your personal vows were lovely ...all the best my dears and do send my photos xxx

Katherine was excellent as our wedding solemniser and was so easy to communicate with if we had any questions. She was fantastic and amazing on the day itself and we got such lovely positive feedback from family and other guests about how “sound” she was and how helpful she was when setting up the outside ceremony. As a couple, we were thrilled with her.

Kathryn was wonderful! Professional.Friendly and warm and relaxed.It was such a pleasure having Kathryn to lead our service. We wanted a Spiritual ceremony and Kathryn showed us how to do this by including our parents in a lovely gratitude ritual. The reading we would never have thought of including were so appropriate to us as a couple as she knew what we wanted. With so many personal touches we were able to include all our family and friends. The highlight of our day was our ceremony. Thank you Kathryn from the bottom of our hearts for being the one who joined us together in matrimony.

Kathryn was absolutely amazing! She is competent, organised, reliable and professional. She helped us to ensure that our ceremony reflected who we were as a couple. It was non-religious but she managed to add a “blessing of the hands” ceremony which added some importance and spirituality to our ceremony, she really went out of her way to create a unique and memorable experience for all our family and friends. Feedback was so positive and we were delighted to involve so many of them in our wedding ceremony. They said they had never witnessed a ceremony like the one we had which included a balloon release in memory of my mother Anne and James's father Tommy to the music I believe in Angels. The hand-fasting also involved our guests. Thank you so much Kathryn!Exceptional value for the service you receive, well worth the fee.” ~ Susie & James.Response from Minister Kathryn Cashman Registered SolemniserHi Susie and James. Thank you It was a delightful ceremony and everyones involvement made it very special. Ah the balloon release was a loving way to remember those who have passed away. All the best in your future together with love Kathryn XXXX

Minister Kathryn Cashman helped us put together the perfect ceremony. The one we had dreamed of. She listened to us with amazing attention to detail and was so nice to work with, her energy was calming and positive over the time we emailed and met with her. We wanted something small, intimate and something a little different. She was able to include a piece of everything we asked for and more. Kathryn helped us to understand all we needed to know before and during our wedding regarding the legal side. We had the hand fasting ceremony and we included our family. Everyone is still talking about the ceremony and how very special it was. We can only say 'Our Day' will be unforgettable for all the right reasons. Thank you Kathryn from the bottom of our hearts. We would do it all again thanks to you. Franny and Paul.Response from Minister Kathryn Cashman Registered SolemniserDear Franny and paul. Thank you for taking the time to give me such a wonderful review. It was an honour to be part of your wedding day.

To say that Kathryn was amazing, would be the biggest understatement of the year! From the very first point of contact, Kathryn has been nothing but kind, helpful and extremely patient. Myself and my husband Micheál, have always been very laid back and last minute kind of people. This sometimes proves difficult for others, but Kathryn took us in her stride :) The ceremony was perfect. This wouldn't have been the case only for Kathryn, as we weren't really sure what we wanted. We just knew we wanted the ceremony to be simple but meaningful. Our true sense of selves was present throughout the whole day, and every aspect of the ceremony had a personal touch or element to it. It is a day we will treasure forever, and we are so thankful to Kathryn for all she did for us. She was an absolute pleasure and we couldn't recommend her highly enough. If you are getting married, you NEED Kathryn to be involved! We believe that Kathryn's calm and tranquil aura played a major contribution to how relaxed our wedding day was. We just knew we were in good hands. Lots of Love, Emma & Micheál McCarthy, Dunnycove, Ardfield, Clonakilty, Co. Cork
