Your Special Day

Most people spend a lot of time and money preparing for what will probably be the most significant event in their entire life – getting married.

You may have a strong sense that the ceremony itself will be important.  Yet if you are not linked to a particular faith or belief system it can be difficult to find a celebrant to plan and conduct a meaningful ceremony to mark this significant day.

If you feel that the content, style and tone of the ceremony itself is important, and if you would like something different and personal to the two of you, an interfaith ceremony will be perfect.

I can create a ceremony for you that is spiritual without being specifically religious; or alternatively, something that is humanist in tone, with little or no religious content.
 

 


 

OneSpirit Interfaith Weddings

OneSpirit Interfaith weddings and marriage ceremonies are for couples who do have an understanding that there is more to here and now than scientific humanism would have us believe, but are unsure about what that might be, or don’t really have the words to describe it; or it is for couples where each of you has a different set of religious beliefs and you are looking to have the two synthesised in one ceremony that is meaningful to you both; or it is for couples where one of you understands the world and nature of this life according to a particular faith or set of beliefs (this might be humanism) and the other has no clear religious or spiritual understanding.

I offer you a bespoke wedding ceremony with its format and style completely personalised and created individually for you.  You can include whatever you like in the ceremony – maybe a meaningful ritual to symbolise your union, for example, a Quaich Ceremony, a Unity Candle Ceremony or a Handfasting, and/or you might include a tribute, or an ‘address’ to the two of you.  Or your ceremony can be something brief and clear and simple.

Your Celebrant

I will create a ceremony tailored to your requirements, incorporating your values and beliefs where appropriate, and using language that feels comfortable and authentic to you.

Please feel free to contact me if you would like any specific information in advance of booking and please note there will be no obligation to commit to booking before we have held a preliminary skype or telephone call, lasting 15-20 minutes.  This meeting could be held in person if you live close by.  During this call we can discuss any thoughts and questions regarding the ceremony and it gives us an opportunity to get to know each other and ensure there is a rapport between us that will enable us to work creatively together.

The process of creating your ceremony will be supported by at least one meeting face-to-face if at all possible.  Sometimes it is convenient to meet in London or Glasgow or Edinburgh, or you may prefer to travel to Carlisle to meet me there.  If you require further telephone, skype, or email sessions that will be fine.  I would be happy to be present for a rehearsal if you would like to have one beforehand, otherwise we could run through the ceremony at a skype call during the week before the wedding to ensure that it will run smoothly on the day.

Finally, I will be there to conduct your ceremony!  On the day itself I usually arrive about one hour before the ceremony to check that everything is in order, and to give any support that is needed. If you have any questions about what I do as a wedding celebrant in Cumbria and South West Scotland please contact me for a friendly chat.

Onespirit interfaith minister 

Interfaith Ministry

I am one of a network of Interfaith Ministers in the UK and Ireland with links to a sister organisation in the United States.  The OneSpirit Interfaith Foundation, with whom I trained, and the Interfaith Ministers Association, of which I am a registered member, is not a religion or faith as such but a community of people who share an understanding that the god or gods of our different revelations and traditions is one in spirit.

Different cultures and communities have evolved different concepts and understandings of the nature of the divine, yet the core teachings of all faiths are the same.  All uphold the practice of love and compassion as being at the centre of authentic human activity.

 


 

Interfaith Ministers like me do not stress the importance of beliefs, but the importance of that centre of love at the heart of human affairs and in our relationship with what endures and gives meaning and direction to life itself.

I am listed on the Interfaith Foundation’s Register of OneSpirit Interfaith Ministers (ROSIM), and as such I subscribe to the Foundation’s Code of Ethics. I am committed to anti-discriminatory practice and welcome clients from all cultures, religions, backgrounds and sexualities.  I am insured to offer spiritual counselling, ceremonies, and to lead prayer and meditation groups.

I continue to develop my personal and professional skills and knowledge through study and by attending workshops and training events. I also attend regular supervision sessions with a supervisor accredited by the Foundation.
