As the title says, My fiance and I are to be married in Ireland this year on the date 21.09.2013, in a venue near Dublin. Now all we need is a pagan officiant.
We don’t need the handfasting to be official, just a simple ceremony.
And there will be only us two, no family or relatives.
Do you happen to know anybody that could wed us?
All suggestions are welcome <3
p.s. If you know a cheap, but decent photographer we could use, do recommend!

Hi paganinsoulandlife! I just came across your post and was wondering if you had any luck finding an officiant in Ireland. My fiance and I are from the states and planning to do the same thing… just a simple ceremony for the two of us. We will also be finding a photographer. Where in Ireland are you planning ot have your ceremony? We are looking at Killiney Hiill Park outside of Dublin or Wicklow Mountains National Park.

I would suggest going around local Metaphysical shops and asking in there if they know any Pagan members of clergy. (you could always try and find some stores online if your asking from abroad, and email them)
Usually they have connections to other groups that get their supplies from them.
Also if you are looking into a specific tradition (Druidic, Correlian Wicca, Alexandrian Wicca etc) that can help narrow your search, you can always look up to see if they have any Irish Official Sites that might enable you to get in touch with someone who knows someone etc.
You could also get in touch with http://paganfed.org/ which is The Pagan Federation, I’m not sure if they specifically deal with any Irish cases, so you might have to ask them to put you in touch with someone. Note: I have emailed before, they’re a really small group so you may have to get in touch a few times before you get a reply.
I hope that helps! <3

@katymegh: We’ve suceeded in finding pagan officiant 🙂 He’s such a lovely person, but he’s not usually wedding couples, only those that he feels that he should. So I’m not sure he’ll be open to my suggestion that he marries you two too. We’re not yet sure about the venue, we’ll leave it to him, because he’ll know where is the ‘right spot’. If you know what I mean.
We also found a photographer. very cheap yet good.
