Civil Ceremonies Specialist

Denise Lyness

Celebrant Services


I'm happy to be able to offer you and your partner a warm, personal and meaningful ceremony. Be it in Portugal or Ireland.

I like to propose a free initial meeting, face to face or by skype. This way we can talk about your ideas and start to plan your day should you choose me as your celebrant.  

Normally couples will get legally married before they arrive in Portugal (alternatively, I have provided information on the contact page). The signing of your legal document does not effect the civil ceremony I will conduct.  This leaves us free to create a stress-free day of celebrations.


I am very open to creative wedding services and will happily share ideas and enhancements I have picked up along the way. 



I've put together some moments that capture the essence of what made these days so special.


Denise took the stress out of planning our ceremony with her warm and enthusiastic character. She was always there if we needed her.

On the day, she had a great presence in the room and even put the best man at ease.

The ceremony was exactly what we wanted and we can't recommend Denise enough!
