I am Rev. Edel O’Connell, an Ordained One Spirit Interfaith Minister, a very proud mother of three grown up children and for most of my professional life I worked in community pharmacy.
Several years ago, I chose to study and train with One Spirit Interfaith Foundation and I am now an Ordained Interfaith Minister.
I am registered with the HSE to legally solemnise weddings in Ireland.
Not everyone gets the chance in life to work at something they truly love… but I do.
It is a privilege when asked to officiate at a ceremony, whether it is a wedding, funeral or any of life’s milestone occasions.
It is an opportunity to use my own life skills and experiences to guide and support couples and families in their special moments in life.
So, now that you know a little about me, I hope you feel more at ease and I look forward to hearing from you.
Your wedding day is one of the most important days of your life. It should be incredibly special, meaningful and memorable.
Every couple’s relationship is unique and your wedding ceremony should reflect your relationship in all its aspects.
Choosing an independent celebrant to host your ceremony ensures you have a wedding ceremony that is as individual as you are; a ceremony that reflects your personalities and the love you share.
Without the constraints of church or registry office, you have the freedom to choose a venue for your wedding ceremony that is special to you.
It might be a beautiful location that you love to visit, a windswept beach, castle or historic public building.
Using a wedding celebrant means that you are not bound by tradition and you are free to let your imagination inspire you. Your Order of Service can be as secular or as spiritual as you wish.
I really enjoy the experience of working together with a couple and seeing their Wedding Ceremony evolve. Poems and readings are suggested, music is chosen, vows are written and gradually their dreams take shape.
The joy and excitement you feel on starting married life together is captured and shared with all your family and friends. I am happy to include any special elements or family traditions .
So, now that you know a little about me, I hope you feel more at ease reaching out and sharing details about you and your big day plans.
I'd love to hear from you!
