Janie Lazar



I’m Janie, someone guided by instinct. Who believes everything begins with that first conversation.  It’s that initial call with you which sparks thoughts for a ceremony which takes shape more than often as I’m walking by the sea minutes from where I live in Dun Laoghaire, County Dublin where the sound of seagulls constantly reminds me how connected everyone  – and everything is.

Having come from a jewish background, experienced a christian education, lived amongst people of different cultures and lived for a long time now in a predominantly catholic country like Ireland, I’ve come to believe life is above all about people, most of whom are inherently kind hearted, hold common values, all of which makes me think perhaps we’re all really humanists at heart or more accurately sentient beings!

It is I feel because of my own experiences of love and joy, illness and loss too, my work as a celebrant has become ever more inclusive and very much an important part of my life.

Inclusion is everyone’s responsibility; an ethos Entheos celebrants uphold and what helps each of us make every ceremony as individual as you.

Being HSE registered solemnisers means we can take care of the ‘legals’ for weddings as well as create ceremonies. Where pretty much anything is possible as life’s natural cycle endlessly gives us opportunities to make precious memories with you and for everyone on the day, in person and virtually too.

Whilst I work mainly in the greater Dublin area and adjoining counties, I’ll happily travel!
