We had Kathleen as our Celebrant in August 2022. To say she was a pleasure to deal with really isn’t giving her the credit she deserves. Kathleen was brilliant from the first email. So helpful, nothing was a problem and she laid out a beautiful ceremony for us. She was very natural preforming the ceremony and walked us through it perfectly. Thank you so much for everything Kathleen xx

Kathleen officiated at our wedding celebration a few weeks back at the wonderful, Castle Oaks House Hotel in Castleconnell, Co. Limerick. She was excellent to work with. She met with us some weeks before the ceremony and went through all of our options on how we wished to have the ceremony run on the day including sample readings, vows and options on how we wished to run the day and what we would like to have included. On the day, Kathleen was calm, extremely professional and put everyone at ease, we are so very grateful to her for her support and would highly recommend her gentle style to other engaged couples who are planning ahead – Thank You Kathleen !!

Kathleen was our celebrant for our ceremony August 2022. From the very first meeting she guided us through everything. Kathleen always promptly answered any of our questions, even replying by email while on her holidays. Everybody loved our ceremony and commented on how nice and personable Kathleen was. We would have no hesitation in recommending Kathleen for anybody no matter what type of ceremony. Thank you again so much Kathleen. Babs & Dave.

Kathleen Brouder was the celebrant for our wedding in May 2022. Kathleen was a pleasure to deal with from start to finish. She was super helpful in choosing the different elements of the ceremony making it very personal to us as a couple. We felt as though we were in good hands from the beginning which made the lead up to the wedding very low stress. We received so many compliments from our guests about the ceremony and it flowed so beautifully on the day. Thank you so much Kathleen.

We had a wonderful experience with Kathleen as our celebrant. She was very communicative and easy to work with, even as my husband and I planned our ceremony from the US. She helped us create a unique experience that we will cherish for a lifetime, which included highlighting traditional Irish rituals and our personal love story. We highly recommend Kathleen!

We were married on the 12/03/2022 in the Limerick Strand Hotel. Kathleen Brouder was our Wedding Celebrant from Spiritual Ceromony’s, Kathleen met with us before our wedding day to go through all that we needed to know on the day. We had a very light and happy ceremony, it was fun and so is it was wonderful. Kathleen is a lovely bubbly lady who made sure it was all about the two of us, yet she made sure our mothers were involved also which was lovely for us and them. I would highly recommend Kathleen she put us at ease throughout the ceremony and before.

We got married in February 2022 and had the pleasure of having Kathleen as our celebrant. From the very first email, Kathleen was so friendly and professional. She gave us lots of help and advice for planning our ceremony, and every question we had was answered quickly and in detail. Our wedding was the first spiritual ceremony that most of our friends and family had been to and we had so many comments from guests on how enjoyable, beautiful and personal it was. Wedding planning can be stressful but Kathleen made everything relaxed and easy and was an absolute joy to work with. She made our day extra special and we would 100% recommend her.
Thank you Kathleen!

My husband and I, would like to thank Kathleen Brouder, for our beautiful civil cermony held in December.
From day one of us wanting a big wedding next year.
To us changing our minds on three different occasions.
This beautiful soul of a lady could not have been more calm and collected.
Helping us with every query or worry we had.
From our first meeting to talk about our stripped back wedding to just my husband , I and the kids .
She made it so special for us .
We had a beautiful handfasting ceremony using the ribbon from my parents wedding bouquet.
Kathleen included a special rememberence to my father as he is recently deceased .
This was very emotional but a moment I will cherish. So for that again I thank you.
The sand cermony to join our kids in our union was truly beautiful as it united our families as a whole, and the kids felt like part of our union , which again was magical.
The list is endless of high regarding compliments for this lady .
In my final hour before walking down to meet my husband , Kathleen came to my room made sure all was well and calmed a very nervous bride ????
I can’t thank you enough Kathleen for everything you did for us on our special day.
It’s a day we shall never forget.
Kind regards

Kathleen the celebrant who married us was absolutely fantastic!

We live in the UK so didn’t have the opportunity to come over and meet Kathleen prior to the wedding due to covid, but in the weeks and months before the big day, through zoom’s, texts and emails, Kathleen was SO helpful, knowledgeable and thorough, she made everything so easy and stress-free!

On the day itself, Kathleen was at the venue ahead of time and was so kind, lovely and professional it really helped to relax me and get me prepared for the incredibly lovely service that followed!

10/ 10 service, professionalism and friendliness! Thank you!

We were very lucky to have Kathleen Brouder as our wedding celebrant. We weren’t sure what to expect in relation to planning a spiritualist ceremony but we couldn’t have gotten a better guide and advisor than Kathleen. From the first day we met her, Kathleen walked us through all the various options as to what the ceremony could look like and most importantly how we could make it personal to us and to our family and friends. Kathleen’s presence was so reassuring to both of us in the lead up to and on the day of the wedding, and she made sure she met each of us just before going in to the venue. Kathleen was so attentive to us and our families and friends on the day and really supported us to create a ceremony so special and memorable to us. Everything was so relaxed, so special but also so much fun which we didn’t necessarily think would be a word we would be using in relation to the ceremony itself. Our experience of wedding ceremonies has always been that they have alot of love but are serious. Ours was full of love with a serious element of course, but full of fun and smiles with everyone feeling part of it and not just observing. That’s exactly what we wanted but never thought that was the way it could be. We all had such a lovely time and many of our guests said it was the nicest ceremony they have ever attended. We would highly recommend Kathleen to help you create a ceremony which is personal and special for you both.

Kathleen was our celebrant when we had our special day on 4th September 2021 in the Brehon Kilarney. We cannot thank her enough from start to finish she was amazing, Kathleen was helpful to both my Wife and I through the whole process and put us at ease when we felt a bit nervous, we cannot recommend her enough. Thank you once again Kathleen for all your hard work.

Ivan and myself were so happy to have Kathleen Brouder as our celebrant from Spiritual Ceremonies.
She was just the perfect match for us, she was professional and very humorous just what one needs in a wedding plan, she even gave us ideas of things that we randomly spoke about for the wedding. She gave more then 110% effort before, during and after the wedding, she still kept in touch to find out how we were doing which was very warming to hear back from her, her guidelines are very mind blowing, the interview with her for the first time was relaxed, and enjoyable rather then stressful.
Ivan and myself once again would love to say thank you very much Kathleen Brouder for your amazing service.

We got married in July 2021 and had the pleasure of having Kathleen as our celebrant. Due to Covid19 we had to rearrange our wedding numerous times. We finally got a date and with just 3 weeks notice Kathleen pulled everything together for us stress free. All our guests commented on how beautiful and personal the ceremony was. Kathleen made us feel so relaxed. We would definitely recommend having Kathleen from Spiritual Ceremonies as your celebrant for your special day.

Our ceremony with Kathleen was the most magical hour of our lives. It was everything we dreamed of and more. Kathleen’s attention to detail, warm character and interest in us, our story, our wishes and our day was second to none. She delivered the most beautiful and special ceremony- she is absolutely in the right job! Both of our families were blown away! Kathleen’s attention to detail, suggestions and ability to listen and take on board our wishes and ideas was fantastic whilst also guiding us through the process of creating the ceremony – it was such a wonderful experience for us both.
Kathleen will have a special part in our lives forever. Thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts. Kym and John

Kathleen Brouder of Spiritual Ceremonies was the celebrant for our wedding. From our initial meeting with Kathleen, was friendly and attentive to our wishes for our big day. Her advice on all the different options on ceremony elements available, and how they suited to us was excellent on piecing the elements for the wedding together and allowed us to involve our daughter in the ceremony.
She met me an hour before the ceremony to run through everything and to make sure I was happy with it all and provided great re-assurance before the ceremony started.
All our guests remarked how beautiful our ceremony was and how Kathleen tailored the ceremony to us and our family
We are extremely grateful to Kathleen for how well our wedding went and we would highly recommend Kathleen as a Celebrant.

Thank You,

We had our wedding in October 2019 and were delighted with our celebrant from Spiritual Ceremonies. Kathleen was assigned to us and she was a great fit for myself and Kieran. One of the main reasons we choose Spiritual Ceremonies was because they could provide a celebrant that could take care of all the legal requirements on the day and we could make the ceremony as personal as we want.
Kathleen listened to what we had in mind and got to know us she then gave us lots of ideas on both the structure and content of our ceremony to make it special and personal to us. One of the best such ideas was the personal introductions at the beginning of the ceremony where we could tell our story to our family and friends, something we hadn’t seen at many weddings previously so it made the ceremony so memorable to us.
Kathleen was so professional and helpful at all times and to know that she would be conducting out ceremony really put our mind at ease on wedding morning.

I cannot say enough about Kathleen Brouder and the amazing job she did on our wedding. Every photo I look back on that she is in she has the biggest loveliest smile on her face. She made us feel so relaxed on the day (and in the weeks leading up to it). There was no ask too big for her and no question went unanswered. Our ceremony was absolutely beautiful. There was many people on the day that had never been to a wedding outside a church before that said it was so personal and special. We are forever grateful.

We chose spiritual ceremonies as it seemed to suit us and what we wanted the best. We DEFINITELY made the right decision . From our first meeting with solemniser Kathleen Brouder all the way through to our ceremony was a breath of fresh air. It really is what it says it is “a ceremony about you for you” it felt so personal and really captured our relationship and journey.

I would highly recommend Kathleen and spiritual ceremonies to everybody especially for a more personal ceremony!!

Kathleen Brouder was our celebrant for our big day last July. We were planning our wedding in Ireland from Shanghai which was often a big challenge. Kathleen was incredibly efficient and professional while at the same time being warm and approachable. She made the process manageable for us by breaking the planning down into achievable chunks. She was not overwhelming or invasive, she simply reminded us at certain points in time what needed to be done next and offered her support with every element.

On the day Kathleen was relaxed and her bubbly personality shone during our ceremony. Our guests really enjoyed the laid back atmosphere she created. The hand fastening ceremony was so beautiful and moving, Kathleen was very accommodating, we could involve as many loved ones as we liked so it meant every body that meant something to us had a part.

We highly recommend Spiritual Ceremonies as a company and Kathleen as a celebrant. We wish all those planning their weddings with them a magical day and we are sure it will be an experience above and beyond their expectations.

We had Kathleen Brouder as our celebrant for our wedding. From the moment we met her she was just so friendly and listened and advised us on all the different options we had. She took on board everything we said to her and made sure everything was just exactly what we wanted. She also came to see me an hour before the ceremony to run through everything and to make sure I was happy with it all. Everyone is still talking about our ceremony and how lovely Kathleen is. She made it all about us and our families. Tha k you ever so much Kathleen you are a truely a beautiful lady inside and out and we couldn’t of asked for a nicer person to marry us. Would highly recommend Kathleen she really goes above and beyond.

My husband & I had the pleasure of working with Kathleen Brouder for our wedding earlier this year in August. We first spoke with Kathleen by phone over a year before the wedding. We met with Kathleen soon after to get an idea of the type of ceremony and options available to us. Kathleen was always very helpful and she sent us a rough draft soon after our meeting. We went through the draft ourselves at a slower rate and sent any changes along to Kathleen. Working with Kathleen was easy as she was quick to respond and/or clarify any of our issues. Kathleen checked in with us in the month leading up to the wedding to finalise details. We had a beautiful ceremony which ran smoothly and beautifully. Kathleen kept everything moving nicely and presented the ceremony with a comfortable, intimate style.
For us, we loved having a spiritual ceremony. Although we didn’t include church hymns or prayers, it was nice to have the option to choose prayers or hymns.
