    Damian Moloney - Officiant - Registered Solemniser

    Damian Moloney - Officiant - Registered Solemniser

    Damian is a beaut of a man, West Cork true n true and one of the best celebrants in Ireland if not in all of Clon! A Registered Solemniser in Ireland through Spiritual Ceremonies.

    Damian has endless stories, dead pan humour followed by a cackle of a laugh. If you want someone to be calm when the wedding storm is all around you, Damian is your man.

    Great advice of: trust your vendors, along with: go how the couple’s vision of their day is. Bottom line is it is the wedding couples’ day.

    With the guts of 8 years experience, Damian shares some of the more unique elements added to the wedding ceremonies (including whiskey blending). Damian also gave some good advice including various friends and families in the ceremony. His approach to love stories and the big kiss.

    Kids and Dogs, you know what they say, "drive on" says Damian. A natural with all curveballs, Damian tells 2 of the best stories from wedding ceremonies, a heart tugger and a legendary "I can't believe that happened".

    Civic minded Damian Maloney has done more for his local community than I could ever had imagined. Truly humble he diverts the credit of great work of fellow community members. Damian tells a story that silences even Laura, the story of how the passing of a friend to manyin west cork, led to charity fundraising, to hospice building. The work continues as the positive work spreads to neighbouring towns.
    Check out Damian at https://spiritualceremonies.ie/registrars/damian-moloney-osui/

    BMG Sound

    BMG Sound

    Billy the disco maniac from BMG Sound joins DJ Benny and Laura to talk all things sound, lighting and effects for weddings.
    Billy admits his Ferrero Rocher addiction as he spoils Benny with the chocolates.
    Billy has years of experience, understanding sound systems in depth. Whether you have the huge banqueting room on small intimate space Billy can cater appropriately for your wedding.
    Obsessed with disco balls, Billy is a shinning light for weddings (I couldn’t resist).
    Rare for a DJ, BMG Sound is a team player, super conscious that the event is a wedding and a family day, Billy works with all suppliers to create the perfect outcome. Be it for your wedding photos, video, atmosphere and just smooth running of operations.
    BMG Sound offer full day sound solutions. Ceremony sound system or music, drinks reception vinyl records, mega entrances, band alternative and traditional DJ slot.
    Billy does not offer Balloons (Benny is very bold) but Billy is mad for getting CO2 cannons going at Irish Weddings.
    BMG Sound very much has its own style, while collaborating with the couple for musical guidance Billy turns out DJ mixes of songs you love, without making the songs unrecognisable. Don’t stress, he still caters for granny. The genres and decades are all covered off through the many hours set.
    A hiking legend 😊 Billy tells a great story of DJing at the top of Carrauntoohil.
    Not to limit the fun, BMG Sound offers 360 video, selfie mirrors and all that type of fun stuff.
