Weddings


"To love someone
is to learn the song in their heart
and sing it to them
when they have forgotten it."

As a One Spirit Interfaith Minister I am registered to solemnise your LEGAL wedding. 

 
The story of the planning of your Wedding Ceremony......
So this is how it works: Once we have established that  we are a good fit for each other, usually after a meeting with you both in person if possible, or alternatively over the phone, I ask for a deposit as a token of our agreement. You will need to tell the registrar you wish me to be your Solemniser - I will be listed under One World Ministers.
Then I will send you a questionnaire, and a selection of readings to perhaps inspire you, as well as some ideas to help you to begin to envision your wedding, and to get excited about the possibilities (that's if you haven't got a clear idea already), and to make some choices about the things you would like, or most definitely not like!

Maybe you have dreamed of a Handfasting, or a Glass Heart Ceremony, perhaps a Warming of the Rings, or a Unity Ceremony with sand, or with flowers.
You will probably like to make personal vows to each other - I can give you ideas and support with this. 
 Then I send you a second set of questions for you each to answer and compare notes. giving you an opportunity to consider your relationship  and the ceremony more deeply. This gives me more information, enabling me to make the ceremony personal to you, and to be sensitive to who you are. I will then create a first draft,  and send it to you for your consideration.

At that point it's great if we can meet, or phone, to discuss the draft and anything else which needs to be decided, and from then on it is a process of fine-tuning the ceremony, until it is perfect.
It is important that you are critical; this is your wedding ceremony , your beautiful day, so I expect you to tell me when anything, maybe just a phrase, is not to your liking. It needs to be the way you wish it to be!
In the days before the wedding it is a good idea to have a run through, to look at the logistics, and perhaps practice particular parts of the ceremony; this does help to make the day itself run smoothly and with less stress.
As you can see it is quite a journey we walk together in the weeks and months before that day of your marriage, and it can be as simple or as complex as you like.
 

My fee is 550 euros
which is
inclusive of all the preparations, and my travel, and of course being there on the day, but does not include accomodation if I need to stay the night.

I am also happy to celebrate Wedding Blessings, if you do not need a legal wedding, and I love to create Vow Renewals; such a beautiful way to mark a particular moment during the years of your marriage .


Some words of appreciation 

Just wanted to drop a line to say how amazing Rev Jane Killingbeck was last summer! My husband and I renewed our vows in our families home town of Clonakilty, everything went to plan and she was very caring and thorough. She took the time to get to know us ( we are from Canada) and to help us get everything out of our renewal we wanted ! Highly recommend!                              Julie

"We are incredibly grateful to you for such a beautiful ceremony. Our friends and family are still talking about it. We loved every minute …and feel extremely privileged. Thanks so much for the care and attention to detail you gave our ceremony, lots of love."

 Caitriona, John, and Beth.

Our wedding ceremony was beautiful, intimate and very special thanks to Jane. Jane met with us several times to go through everything with us, get to know us and what we wanted from our day and we will never forget the beautiful words she had to say. We can't recommend her highly enough.
Thank you!
