Coastal Ceremonies

How can we help?

Coastal Ceremonies, was set up in 2017 by Clara Malone.  The team is made up of Orla Cronin and Susan Eyles and between the three of us, we have extensive experience officiating ceremonies and planning weddings and vow renewals.  We are based in Co. Clare with the Wild Atlantic Way on our doorstep.

Orla and I both trained with the Irish Institute of Celebrants and while having known each other twenty years ago, hadn’t met since that time.  Through mutual friends we heard that we were both training to be celebrants at the same time, in different classes, and both of us had recently moved to Ennis and would be living around the corner from each other.   It was meant to be and we have been happily working together since that time, officiating ceremonies in County Clare and all around Ireland.

We got to know Susan through work and when Susan expressed an interest in becoming a celebrant and also looking after the Wedding Planning Services side of our business, we all jumped at the opportunity.   We are so excited to be able to provide couples with an end to end service and also work with incredibly talented local suppliers and fantastic venues.  Susan has over 20 years experience in the hospitality industry so you are in the safest pair of hands, with Susan planning your wedding.

We love what we do; we love telling stories, we love meeting people and we love family celebrations so therefore we really have the dream job.  To be a part of someone’s special day and helping couple’s create lasting memories is an honour and to see couples saying “I do” at the end of the ceremony is literally the “icing on the cake”.

We are also incredibly lucky to live so close to the sea.  We spend a lot of our time officiating ceremonies in the Cliffs of Moher, or Loop Head and in castles, ancient ruins and even lake side gardens.  We also get to work in the most incredible venues like Hotel Doolin and Dromoland Castle, and alongside some of the best wedding suppliers.  The relationship with each couple doesn’t start on the day of the wedding but many months before so we are so invested by the time the wedding day comes around that it is quite emotional watching the couple say “I do” to each other

So, whether you are looking for someone to plan your elopement, wedding or vow renewal from beginning to end, or would like to find a celebrant to officiate your ceremony on the day, please get in touch with us.  We would love to chat and hear your story and find out how we can help.


Your Ceremony, Your Way.
