Full Wedding Ceremony incl Legal Solemnising

So you’re planning your wedding?Congratulations!!!

Once you’ve decided to marry, you can begin to discuss your joint vision for your ceremony- what time of year, your location, indoors in a castle or a hotel or a chapel, or outdoors in a garden, on a beach or on top of a snowy mountain!

Being one of the preferred Wedding Solemniser in Dublin, I can hold your ceremony anywhere you wish, (Legal ceremonies must be held in a HSE approved venue, and we can facilitate that as part of your day).

You Should Also Know...

Wherever you choose, I am happy to work with you to create a ceremony that is unique, reflects you both as individuals and as a couple (and a family, if children are involved!

This includes everything you need for a fully bespoke, legal ceremony, crafted entirely just for you. I provide unlimited support and guidance in the lead-up to your ceremony, and will fully guide you towards the ceremony style that best reflects you both; as a couple, as individuals, and as a family.

ARE YOU

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?

That you want your ceremony to be deeply meaningful and moving, and truly reflect who you both are, as individuals and as a couple?

Your spare moments Googling ceremony ideas and suggested readings?

Wait

"As an Independent Minister, my ceremonies are non-denominational, and can contain as much or as little spirituality as you’d like."

We can discuss this in more depth when we meet, but for now please know that it is my great joy to create a ceremony which is deeply meaningful and sacred to you, and so that your family and friends feel deeply connected and included during it.

This might mean that you’d like it to be very lighthearted with touches of humour, or maybe you’re planning an intimate, candlelit affair in the presence of your nearest and dearest– you tell me what you’re aiming for and I will take it from there.

Common Issues:

I will ask about all sorts of nosy questions, such as:

find a marriage celebrant

How you met?

Who proposed?

How, and where?

What marriage means to you?

Why this person, and why now?

What are your hopes and expectations for marriage, as well as your fears?

  • Once we have established what is important for you to have acknowledged during the ceremony, I can then begin the process of weaving it all together- you don’t need to worry at this stage about how it all fits together, I’ll take care of that!

  • We’ll then talk it though step by step when I present you with your draft ceremony.

  • It is of the utmost importance to me that you feel your ceremony reflects who you both are, and what your marriage means to you, so I offer unlimited revisions, and unlimited support and guidance in the lead-up to your ceremony.

  • For a legal marriage, you will need to Register your Intent to Marry with the HSE at least 3 months prior to your wedding date, and you will need to ensure that your venue is acceptable to the HSE.

  • I will give you more guidance on this as we work together but the main thing for now is that for legal solemnising, it will need to have an identifiable address and be open to the public.

We will have at least two meet-ups prior to the ceremony, either in person or via Skype, and I will have your ceremony completed 2 weeks prior to your wedding date. (If you’d like it completed earlier, please just let me know- I’m happy to work with whatever framework is best for you!)

THIS INCLUDES

Unlimited access to me via phone/Skype and email in the lead up to your ceremony.

Full guidance on ceremony options (vows, readings, etc)

Guidance and advice on Ceremony Enhancements (Unity candles/ handfasting/ sand ceremony) etc.

A completely bespoke and unique wedding ceremony script two weeks in advance of your wedding.

The most beautiful and memorable wedding ceremony on your big day!

My fee as a Wedding Solemniser in Dublin for this service is €600, plus 0.40c/km mileage for ceremonies outside the greater Dublin area.

Your next step is to CONTACT ME to check my availability on your date, and we can arrange to meet up to discuss your ceremony.
I can’t wait to meet you!
Huge love,
Karen xxxx
