Reverend Gabrielle O'Brien

Hi I have recently been ordained  as a OneSpirit Interfaith Minister.   I live and work in  the Lahinch and Ennistymon where I also grew up.

 believe that my marriage has really inspired me to give couples and families a different choice and the freedom to celebrate any day, any time and any location. I have trained as a Family Celebrant, I'm accredited by the Irish Institute of Celebrants I am professionally trained to perform and officiate the ceremonial aspects of a wedding ceremony and using traditional ceremonies like the Handfasting Ceremony, The Wine Box Ceremony, The Sand Ceremony and many more I can customise your day at a location of your choice. My dream wedding would have been held down the old glen by the Falls Hotel. You might like to have it in your own back garden. The point is you have the option other than the registry office or church.  The benefit of having a wedding celebrant is that there are no limitations on what you can do on your special day; I can assist couples create a ceremony which is truly unique.


I spend some time with couples to get to know them. Each couple is different and I want to create a ceremony with them that is personal and reflects their story.  Couples each share their version of how they met and this really helps me develop and craft their love story. Some are quite funny and others can be serious tear jerkers. Wedding guests are often fascinated and entertained when they hear the love story.


In Clare we are surrounded with beautiful scenery and amazing locations and many couples choose travel here. I obviously have extensive knowledge of the area and locations in Clare but my service is available nationwide.
