Janette Wade is a Minister of the Spiritualist Union of Ireland and is the Vice President of the Union. She is registered as a solemniser with the General Registrars Office in the Republic of Ireland.

We booked Jan for our ceremony in January 2024. From the first time we met her we knew she was the one we wanted to perform our ceremony. From the beginning she was so friendly, knowledgeable and professional.
She was so helpful in the lead up to the wedding, putting together a ceremony that was really personal to us. On the day she was brilliant. It could not have gone better. It was a deeply personal ceremony that we got so many compliments on. Everyone loved it, it was so us. Thank you Jan for a wonderful ceremony and day we will never forget.

We had the pleasure of having Janette perform our wedding ceremony in Tankardstown House. From our first call we knew that Janette would be a great fit for our wedding day – she was so warm and a pleasure to deal with. She helped us plan a ceremony that reflected us as a couple, gave us plenty of ideas and made the process as stress free as possible for us. On the day Janette was absolutely amazing – she helped calm the last minute nerves and conducted a beautiful ceremony. Our guests said it was such a personal ceremony and that it was truly a celebration of love – what more could you ask for! We couldn’t recommend her enough & we will be forever grateful.

From the moment I spoke to Janette on the phone I knew she was the one!
We had a lovely meeting prior to our wedding and Janette was really clear in terms of how the day would go which was great because we had no clue what to expect! There was plenty of allowance for anything sentimental we wanted to add and there was also some really nice moments throughout the ceremony added in by Janette.
Our family and friends said they really enjoyed the ceremony and Janette made my husband and I feel very relaxed and at ease during the ceremony despite our nerves she made some little jokes to keep the room upbeat and kept everyone engaged throughout the time.
It was a truly enjoyable part of our wedding and we are so delighted to have had Janette conducting our ceremony in Clontarf Castle. I would 100000% recommend having Janette as your celebrant.

Wow! Jan was just incredible! We met and spoke to her a lot before the big day and she was so warm and friendly that she helped us feel at ease from the very beginning.

During the ceremony she was funny, engaging and got everything so so perfect! She was a calming presence throughout and created a really unforgettable experience for Daniel and I.
We also had so many comments from the guests afterwards at how personal and beautiful the ceremony was.

I genuinely couldn’t recommend her enough to anyone.

Thank you so much Jan! 🤍

Hi Janette,

Maria and I just wanted to thank you so much from the bottom of our hearts for the wonderful ceremony you performed for us last week.

Everyone we spoke to mentioned how great you were and we completely agreed!

Your delivery of the messages to each other was pitch perfect, it was so personal and it went down a treat and set the tone for the whole day.

Thank you for being part of our special day, we are forever grateful to you.

Best Wishes,

Myself and my husband can not say enough about Jan. We knew from the very first conversation that she was the one we wanted with us on the most special day of both our lives.
As a couple who didn’t have a clue the kind of ceremony we wanted Jan was just brilliant at giving us all different things to add in to make it exactly what we didn’t know we wanted.
She made the whole experience light and fun with no stress or panic which was a win for us as my husband to be was a very anxious groom right up until the ceremony but Jan was right there with him to keep him calm.
She’s someone who talks like a friend who has known you for years and all of our guests couldn’t stop raving about how beautiful our ceremony was and that Jan was extraordinary saying the whole thing from memory and keeping eye contact with myself and my husband as the day is for us.
I would 100% recommend anyone I know in the future who wants a ceremony like ours that they should get Jan.
Because of her our ceremony will always be the fondest memory that myself and my husband have when we look back on our day.
Thank you Jan.

We booked Janette Wade for our wedding on Nov 4th, 2022. Jan was an absolute pleasure to work with from the very first moment I emailed her, super quick to respond, organised and just a lovely person. Jan obviously loves what she does and takes a real interest in your wedding day. The ceremony was absolutely beautiful, it completely set the tone and vibe of the day and everyone commented on how lovely it was. I’d happily recommend Jan to any future couples, do not hesitate to book 😊

We just wanted to say a huge thank you to Jan! Our ceremony was so beautiful, laid back and relaxed, which is exactly what we wanted! Even when the weather played up and scattered our marriage form and Jan’s notes for the ceremony she kept her cool and made all our guests laugh . It was our perfect ceremony and our guests are still commenting 6 months later how beautiful it was and how much they enjoyed it.
Thank you for making our ceremony so special and relaxed!

Dear Janette,

We can’t thank you enough for all that you’ve done for us!
Obviously our wedding wouldn’t have been possible without you, but we didn’t expect it to be so emotional, touching and just perfect!
Honestly you were just amazing. You put us completely at ease. I just remember coming down that stairs feeling quite nervous, and seeing your warm smile at the bottom of it, and the nerves lifting. All our guests kept telling us after the ceremony how beautiful it was, even a lot admitted the cried, and that’s all down to you.
So again thank you so much❤️
Also huge congratulations on the birth of your little granddaughter! So happy for you!

Best wishes,

Hi Jan,

Hope all is well…..

I wanted to drop a note to say a HUGE thank you and apologise its only coming to you now.

The ceremony was amazing, I am struggling to find the right words – I felt like we were married by an old family friend, it was so personal, thoughtful, uplifting and yet so simple and was all about 2 people coming together. I felt like it was just me and Kevin but at the same time that my family was there. I am doing a terrible job of trying to say that it was beautiful!!

So many people have commented on the wedding and specifically the ceremony, it was a key highlight. One friend said it was the first wedding that she laughed out loud, cried and truly moved her.

I cannot recommend you enough and will do the online forum / feedback think and if there is anything that I can do to help / support etc please let me know

You are a beautiful human inside and out xxxx

What can we say, our ceremony was everything we wanted. Right from the beginning Janette was so helpful in guiding us through all the preparations and figuring out what we wanted. When the big day finally came Janette put our nerves to rest by being just such a lovely person to deal with. She brought class, sincerity and a touch of humour; all our guests complemented us in just how great the ceremony was. We are so greatful to Janette for being there with us on our day, we could not have chosen a better celebrant.

Hi Janette,

I’m sorry this email is so late coming. Frankie and I wanted to say thank you so much for performing our amazing wedding ceremony. We couldn’t have been happier with how it all went. It was so special and by far my favourite memory of the whole day. You were so accommodating at such short notice. We didn’t get to see you and thank you in person after the ceremony. It was all such a rush. My family and in-laws also wanted to send their thanks. They all absolutely loved the ceremony and are sorry they didn’t get to tell you in person.

Many thanks again.

Jan!!! What can I say but WOW!!! You delivered the most beautiful, special, magical ceremony for us. When choosing a celebrant I told you that I chose you because of your photo as I could see such a beautiful person just from your picture and how right I was! You suited me and Rob so much and so many guests complimented the ceremony saying it was the nicest one they ever attended. Our singer told me that he had posted a picture of the day and you are in it, he got messages from other musicians he said that told him we had the best celebrant in the country. From the bottom of my heart and Rob’s thank you so much for bringing magic to our special day xxx

Massive thanks to Janette who helped us celebrate our wedding day with an amazing personal spiritual ceremony. From the minute we booked Janette was open to all ideas we had and was very supportive in ensuring our 4 kids played a big part of our day. We included a candle lighting ceremony and handfasting ceremony, along with a gift presentation to our kids. Our wedding was not only a marriage but a ceremony connecting us as a family. Janette was very professional, calm and friendly. Despite having the kids chatting the whole way through the ceremony and our candles falling over (thankfully no fire was started!!!) Janette wasn’t phased at all. We are so thankfully to her for the wonderful day we had. All guests commented on how different the ceremony was compared to normal. We would highly recommend spiritual ceremonies Ireland.

Hi Jan,
Just wanted to drop you a quick line to thank you for the beautiful ceremony you hosted for us on Saturday.

Everyone mentioned how lovely and intimate it felt, and the light-hearted moments really added to it. We couldn’t have hoped for a nicer ceremony, or a more helpful, warm celebrant.

It was a pleasure to work with you, and we wish you all the best going forward.

With love,

Hi Janette,
Just want to say a big THANK YOU for our beautiful ceremony on 29th August.
Despite last minute hitches you took it all in your stride and I did not doubt that changes needs would effect the flow of the ceremony due to your calm nature and true professionalism.
As a “second time round” couple it was very important to us that we were able to do things our way and there is not one thing we would change….it was truly beautiful and very emotional. The small group of guests found it very moving as it embodied who we are.
Thank you so much for all your support, advice and professionalism.

Hey Janette,

Just wanted to say thank you so much for marrying us on Sunday 28th December in Tankardstown House.
We both really appreciate all the help and guidance with the preparation in the run up to the big day.
The suggestion to have our family members help out with the service was such a lovely touch, from our mams lighting the candles with us to my dad assisting with the hand ceremony along with our siblings reading poems. It really made the service very special for both of us.
And thanks you for keep us both calm and make us laugh rather than cry before the service, which is always a bonus when wearing makeup!!
All our guests was very impressed with how relaxed and personal the service was and felt it really suited us.
Thanks again for everything Janette.

Hi Janette, we just wanted to drop you a line to say thank you so very much for giving us the most memorable wedding ceremony a couple could have.Every member of our family have commented on the fact that the ceremony was so personal and meaningful and just absolutely beautiful.It was a very emotional day and slightly nerve-racking at the start but worth every second to experience such a meaningful commitment to each other. I cannot talk highly enough of our wedding day and in particular our ceremony. I don’t know if Tom does testimonials or anything but please inform him that we would be the first to recommend you to any couple even considering marriage.Thank you so much again, I honestly believe the day would not have been as magical without your inputMarion & Fergal

Jan, we just wanted to sincerely thank you for officiating our wedding ceremony, which we loved so much.

From the moment we first met with you, you offered guidance, advice and reassurance to two ‘fish out of water’ soon to be newlyweds and for that we’re eternally grateful.

We so appreciate that you encouraged us to proceed with the elements that were important to us and offered ways to make them happen. The Spiritualist ceremony was absolutely the right fit for us and we’re so happy that it’s the road we took.

It was so lovely to see you outside the chapel on the day and feel your calmness before heading in! I know that Mel felt the same when chatting to you.

You have a very special job but we know you do it day in day out so to still manage to make us feel special on the day that was so important to us was amazing, thank you.

All of our guests commented on how relaxed the ceremony was and that was totally down to you. They said you were very lovely and we’d have to agree!

Best wishes for the future, Jan. Thanks so much again.

Hopefully our paths will cross down the line…

Hi Janette, Thank you so much for a fantastic ceremony, I can not express our gratitude enough to you. You absolutely did a fantastic job & everyone commented on how nice the ceremony was. A lot of people said that they had been to civil ceremonies before but they were nothing like our Spiritual Ceremony. Everyone really enjoyed it & they are still talking about it. They really liked the sand ceremony & how the children were involved also. Seamus was very impressed at how you handled the people who were drinking in the room with dignity / grace & respect. We want to thank you from the bottom of our harts for making our day so special. It would not have been the same without you. We would like to take this opportunity to wish you & your family a very Happy & Peaceful Christmas & Good Health for the New Year. Best Wishes Seamus & Jacinta
