Where do we start?!
Let's have a chat! We can start with a telephone conversation to discuss some of your ideas around what you might like to include in your ceremony! We can also meet to plan your ceremony, including poems, readings, and of course for weddings, can can discuss sample vows, exchanging rings and other ceremony rituals and enhancements that you might like. My service includes unlimited email and telephone support between our initial consultation and your ceremony so that your special occasion is perfect and absolutely stress-free!
How do we register our marriage in Ireland?
As a OneSpirit Interfaith Minister, I am authorised to solemnise your wedding, under the Civil Registration Act 2004 - Section 53 (3). This means that I am listed on the Register of Solemnisers and I am authorised to sign your Marriage Registration Form, also known as 'The Green Book', which means your wedding ceremony will be legally binding! Additional information may be found on the Health Service Executive website.
What can we include in our Wedding Ceremony?
A Sample Order of Ceremony might include some of the following:
Procession and Entry
The Opening Welcome and Introduction
Your Love Story
Optional Ceremony Enhancement such as Unity Candle Ceremony, Sand Ceremony or Love Letter Wine Box Ceremony
Exchange of Rings
Signing of the Marriage Registration Form (The Green Book)
Optional Ceremony Enhancement – such as Jumping the Broom or Hand-fasting
What can you expect from me?
My promise to you is that I will create and deliver a unique and bespoke wedding ceremony for you – one that is as special as you are and one which celebrates your love! Your day will be distinctive and memorable as I take you step by step through designing your beautiful ceremony. As an Interfaith Minister, I can include any religious or spiritual elements that you would like or I can craft a non-religious ceremony.
Planning your big day will be stress free, knowing that your ceremony will perfectly reflect your distinct style and theme.
