When it comes to wedding planning, we often talk about the big things. What venue have you chosen? Have you booked your photographer yet? What’s on the menu? Have you gone dress shopping? And while those things are super important, there is one aspect of wedding planning that you shouldn’t overlook. The legal bit. Without it, your wedding day really is just a big party. Registered solemnisers are the ones who give you a reason to have a big party. They get the legal bit done so that at the end of the day you are married.
The Spiritual Ceremonies team is made up of a group of registered solemnisers across the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. They are all able to handle the legal side of things for you and offer a wedding ceremony experience that is unique to YOU. Whatever it is that you want to include or exclude, anyone from this team will be more than happy to customise your ceremony for you. We included some real testimonials, which speak for themselves.

“Our ceremony was so personal to us and so enjoyable that it was the best part of our day. It reflected David and me as a couple and you made that happen. Our guests’ feedback was that it was the most personal, lovely, emotional, apt ceremony they have ever attended.”
“We laughed, we cried and we laughed some more. Everything was just flawless and every word you spoke was beautiful. It is a time in our lives we will never forget and we thank you from the bottom of our hearts.”

“She gave us moments during the ceremony where we could take everything in. She was a friend throughout the whole thing and I wouldn’t have wanted anyone else there. I remember every second of the ceremony and I’m so happy for that. I’m ecstatic with everything and I can’t recommend Eileen enough.”
“From the start of the planning up to the wedding, she was so organized and helped us relax. We loved how we could make the ceremony all about us and have our own music. We had our friends involved in our ceremony and this made it so much more for us.”
“Living in the States, with the time difference, she made every effort to Skype and email us throughout the process. Sandra incorporated every element we wanted, and was eager to offer suggestions as well. She balanced the romantic and emotional with a little bit of humor, making us feel so loved and so special.”
“The gay community doesen’t yet have a heritage of wedding tradition to draw upon. However, the combination of readings, poetry, music and symbols such as the Unity Candle, all guided by your suggestions, proved that we can create something unique and beautiful that we hope will serve as inspiration for future generations.”

“The ceremony was just beautiful. Miriam had allowed us to make any changes we wanted and the whole thing just felt so personal. None of my family or friends had attended a spiritual ceremony before. It felt so much more emotional and heartfelt to us all when comparing to others we’d all been to. Our guests were really blown away by the emotion and romance of it all which is really what we wanted to create for our ceremony.”
“Tara worked with us (over the phone from Australia!) in the months leading up to our wedding to help us create a beautiful personalised ceremony. She gave us tons of options and talked us through each one until we finally had the ceremony structure we wanted. The ceremony was one of the best parts of the day and all our guests complimented us on how unique and beautiful it was.”
“You set such an amazingly relaxed tone from begin to end. Everyone was so taken aback by how flawless it was. Everything went so smooth and you had us both so relaxed that we were able to enjoy every moment of it. We will ABSOLUTELY be recommending you to anyone we know getting married.”
“From the moment we met him he fully understood what we wanted and how we wanted our ceremony to go. Our guests loved the ceremony and had so many compliments for Graham. Everything ran so smoothly and he kept us calm throughout. Could not recommend Spiritual Ceremonies, or specifically Graham, enough.”
