Weddings and Other Services
So, you’ve decided to get married – CONGRATULATIONS!!
Now that the engagement parties are beginning to calm down, you’re turning your thoughts towards your big day. There’s so much to think of and plan for, and the most important of all is your ceremony. The most beautiful part where you both stand in front of your friends and families, and declare your love and commitment to your life partner.
No biggie…. Right?!
It’s a biggie alright! Not to alarm you, but I say this to remind you of the importance of creating a ceremony that captures the essence of how you feel about each other as you enter into your marriage, and the next stage of your lives together.
It’s a big deal, and you need to feel you’re working with the right person to create the ceremony you will remember forever.
This is where I come in.
Excited to be planning your wedding ceremony, knowing that the highlight of your day will be standing in front of your loved ones as you marry your life’s partner?
Determined to ensure that your guests enjoy every moment of your wedding ceremony, and they feel included right from the outset?
Unsure of the type of ceremony you want, but know that you don’t want a ‘traditional’ wedding?
Sure that you want your ceremony to be deeply meaningful and moving, and truly reflect who you both are, as individuals and as a couple?
Spend your spare moments Googling ceremony ideas and suggested readings?
Feel swamped by the sea of Ceremony options available?
Long for guidance and support throughout the whole process?
If yes, I can help!
I am an Ordained Interfaith Minister, and can legally Solemnise marriages in Ireland and Scotland.
I had a traditional Irish Catholic upbringing, so I have a great love for and understanding of, the rituals and traditions I was reared with. However, I’ve always known my path was outside the traditional. I treasure the beauty of our rich language and ancient traditions and I wanted to find a path that felt authentic and soulful to me, without the rules and hierarchy I was accustomed to. I also realised that a huge number of my friends and colleagues felt the same, which is why I’m so delighted to be able to offer a non-traditional (but still deeply meaningful) alternative.
One Spirit Interfaith Ministers work with people of all faiths and none, so regardless of where you place yourself on the spectrum of Spiritual/Religious/Atheist, I am happy to work with you towards creating a ceremony that fits just right with your beliefs. So, whether you consider yourself spiritual, atheist or religious, or spiritual-but-not-religious, or atheist-but-a-bit-spiritual, or spiritual-but-I-don’t-believe-in-God, we can work with that! One Spirit Interfaith Ministers also take a vow of Inclusivity at Ordination, so I welcome every type of diversity, and I will use your choice of language/pronouns in your ceremony so that your truth is reflected throughout.
I will meet with you in the early stages of your wedding planning to discuss your vision and plans for your ceremony, and to see if we’re a good fit for each other.
The first step is to contact me, and if I’m available on your date I would be delighted to meet with you either in-person or on Skype, and we can take it from there.
I look forward to hearing from you!
