Weddings and Relationships
"There is nothing more lovely in life than the union of two people whose love for one another has grown through the years, from the small acorn of passion, into a great rooted tree."
Vita Sackville West
The role of the One World Interfaith Minister is to help you as couple reflect deeply about the purpose of your relationship, the vision for your life together and how you would like to express your intentions in your ceremony.
What’s particularly wonderful about an Interfaith ceremony is that we offer you complete freedom and flexibility in choosing your content. The Minister will guide you and suggest lots of elements you might want to include - some that you might not even have heard of!
Each ceremony is a personal reflection of who you are as a couple and where you are heading together.
You can create your own vows and work with your Minister to design a meaningful ceremony which can include your favourite readings and music.
You and your Minister will agree on any meetings you would like (in person, by phone or on Skype) and agree the process for completion of the various drafts.
It may be that you are already married, maybe in another country, and you wish to have a Marriage Blessing ceremony in Ireland because it is a special place for you or because your friends and family are living in Ireland and you want to celebrate with them.
You can still include all the content you like and we would just omit the legal parts of the ceremony. But of course you can still exchange vows and rings. And you will have more choice regarding venues if your ceremony is not a legal one.
Whatever the phase of your
relationship you can mark it with a sacred and meaningful ceremony with
the help of one of our Ministers. You might want to renew your vows on a
significant wedding anniversary or hold a reconciliation ceremony after
a divorce. Whatever the milestone in your relationship we can help you
mark it in a meaningful and personal way.
What people said
"The Minister we chose was exactly what we were looking for. We are from California, and were traveling to Europe for the first time. First off, we met her over email and phone and planned everything that way. She is honestly such a lovely and kind person - that shines through even in the emails. She went above and beyond to help us and our ceremony was exactly what we were looking for - simple, meaningful, comfortable and memories we will cherish forever."

"We chose the perfect Celebrant for our wedding. She was so sensitive and aware of our needs and helped to create the day of a life time filled with so much love, joy and connection. So many people commented to us about how wonderful she was and we felt absolutely blessed to find her and have her guide us on our big day. She provided us with inspiration for all aspects of the ceremony and yet recognised when we needed freedom to do things our way, and she loved it. A beautiful human, full of wisdom and spiritual grace. I recommend her without hesitation! "
