Your Legal Wedding

∴ Spiritual and Personal ∴

Would you like a sense of the spiritual in your legal wedding ceremony, yet don't want it to subscribe to any particular dogma or religion? Together we can create a ceremony that is authentic, deeply touching and meaningful to you both.

I can also carry out Wedding Blessings, Commitment Ceremonies and Renewal of Vows.

Exploring Spirituality

∴ Understanding Yourself ∴

Life-changing insights and self-reflection practices, one-on-one spiritual work, coaching & group work.

All gatherings are based in the beautiful retreat-like setting of Connemara, Galway, Ireland.

I am also available on Skype.

See my blog for examples of practical spirituality.

Rev Geraldine Bown

∴ My Story ∴

A little about my own spiritual journey, so you get a sense of the person behind the Minister.

From my Catholic upbringing to discovery of A Course in Miracles, the Ageless Wisdom teachings and the 21 skills of Spiritual Intelligence that can revolutionize how we lead ourselves and others.

"...Words cannot express how grateful we are for your help and support. You made everything as perfect as we could have possibly imagined and made a huge impact on our lives with your grace and style...."

A Sense of Community: The Meaning of Ceremony in Our Lives

There are many people who have no wish to join an organised religion, but would would like to mark particular occasions in their lives with a sacred celebrationSpiritual Wedding, Vow Renewal, Commitment Ceremony, or an Anniversary Celebration. Or would like to be with others who have come together to read or meditate around themes like reconciliation or forgiveness or healing.

To join together in a ceremony which expresses joy and appreciation and unites all those who are present in a common purpose can be meaningful and uplifting. It enables us to connect with our own joy, with the hearts of others and the Spirit with which we are all connected.

Whatever people’s beliefs, ceremony can be a very powerful way of integrating and honouring new experiences, life changes and personal commitments. Although I conduct Baby Blessings and Funerals as a Minister, my passion and joy comes from conducting Wedding Ceremonies. I can’t imagine a more rewarding thing to do than work with a couple to design a beautiful, spiritual AND legal wedding ceremony that reflects each of the couple’s beliefs and is centred on joy, love and commitment.

 

As a registered solemniser of weddings in Ireland I can marry you  legally; and you do not have to reside in Ireland to be married in Ireland!

Everyone, wherever they reside, needs to give at least 3 months notice to the HSE of their intent to marry. This can be done by post for those living outside of Ireland.
