Wedding stories

A treasure trove of stories for you

Brendan Nolan
storyteller and writer



There is one hour in every day when whatever we wish will be granted, but no one knows what that hour is.
It is all a chance if we come on it when we are wishful.
Bonne chance.

Girls were warned to be especially careful in the first month of summer when Irish fairies, otherwise known as the Slua Sidhe, like to take away beautiful mortals to abide with them.
They especially favoured a young woman on her wedding da


A certain aspiration
Golden butter on a new-made dish to be given in the presence of a mill, of a stream, and the presence of a tree; the lover saying softly--
"O woman, loved by me, mayest thou give me thy heart, thy soul and body. AMEN."

Stories touch everyone and especially at your wedding when quiet time comes and your guests want to kick back and relax.


We have many stories from many places and from many times from which we draw inspiration to assemble a selection of stories to make your guests remember this time as a special day in their lives.

We can take listeners of many ages away to the world of enchantment, to a place where anything and everything is possible.

We can tell apposite stories during a humanist wedding, we can tell stories when the meal is consumed and before dancing may start; we can tell stories when so much dancing has been done that only a rest and change of pace will suffice.

If the location suits, we can lead a storywalk around the grounds to clear the head and fill the mind with wonder and amusement.

And since your wedding is unique we take time with you to hear what you wish your guests to experience.

We visit the venue ahead of time and we deliver our unique storytelling experience on the day, for you.
