Meet Clara, Orla and Susan

“Fuss free, fun and personal ceremonies officiated by kind, engaging and professional celebrants who love helping couples and families celebrate.”


We are planting trees for you!!  For each ceremony booked with us, we are planting a tree at the Hometree Charity Site in Co. Clare so there will be a permanent reminder of your ceremony with Coastal Ceremonies.

Unique Weddings

Coastal Ceremonies is run by Clara Malone and is based in Co. Clare and along with Orla Cronin and Susan Eyles, the team provide celebrants for your legal and symbolic wedding, elopements, commitment ceremony, vow renewal, funerals, milestone or baby naming ceremonies.  Our wedding planner Susan also provides wedding, elopement and vow renewal planning services.


Coastal Ceremonies can offer you a ceremony which is personalised, inclusive, meaningful and memorable. Our role as celebrants is to ensure your ceremony reflects you both as a couple, reflecting your own beliefs, personality and style. We can officiate at non religious, semi-religious or mixed faith ceremonies. We can help you bring your ideas and vision to life and create a ceremony that you and your guests will never forget.

Legal Wedding Ceremony

Clara can legally sign your Marriage Registration Form (MRF) during your ceremony as she is part of Entheos Ireland; a progressive, inclusive organisation.

Entheos Ireland is a non-denominational faith path, authorised to carry out ceremonies for couples of all faiths and none. Therefore, Entheos Ireland is listed on the HSE Register of Solemnisers as a Religious Body, as opposed to Secular/Civil.

This classification means that your ceremony will be in accordance with the Rites and Ceremonies of Entheos Ireland, and affords Clara the freedom to include religious content for those who request it, and none for those who don’t.

Equality, Diversity & Inclusion

Coastal Ceremonies is committed to encouraging equality, diversity and inclusion among our team, communities and clients. We are dedicated to encouraging a supportive and inclusive culture within the wedding industry. You can read our Equality, Diversity & Inclusion Policy here

Milestone and Baby Naming Ceremonies

We can also offer milestone ceremonies including coming of age ceremonies and baby naming ceremonies.

Funeral and Memorial Services

Orla can also officiate funeral ceremonies and memorial services holding space in a private, respectful and reflective way for families, with their loved one at the very centre. As Independent Celebrants, we can celebrate all of life’s milestones and provide a modern and inclusive approach to traditional ceremonies, while always respecting the importance of ritual and ceremony in Irish culture.


It is not often you can really say that you love your job.  Hand on heart, we love ours. We love meeting couples to plan their ceremonies, we love hearing the best and funniest engagement stories, we love telling stories and we love family celebrations so therefore we really have the dream job.

What do our couples say about us…..

We have been so lucky to work with the most amazing couples over the past few years and they have also been so generous with their feedback after their ceremonies.  To find out what couples have said about us and the ceremonies we created for them, you can read their wonderful words here


Depending on availability, our professional, fun and experienced team can officiate at your ceremony 7 days a week.
