When I met with Abbie and Luke to discuss the detail of their script it became very apparent that they both had an incredible bond with their mothers. Rarely are there occasions when one can publicly express one’s love and thanks to a parent, but a celebrant ceremony provides just that opportunity.
My first wedding of the year was at Rockbeare Manor for Sam and Helena. What a couple they are! They met at university, became best friends and are now blissfully happy as husband and wife. Their love for one another is so clearly captured in these beautiful images taken by Tom Frost Photography.
I recently shared a post on Facebook about a couple who met at Glastonbury who then had their wedding ceremony there this year. What a brilliant idea and of course a celebrant-led ceremony could be held at any festival that you particularly love because no license is required.
Consider this: Do you have a ceremony when you register a baby’s birth? No. Do you have a ceremony when you register a death? No. Funerals, christenings or naming ceremonies are NOT legal ceremonies. The same applies to wedding ceremonies.
Rich’s proposal to Kate definitely has been one of the best I have encountered so far. With their shared love of the great outdoors, wildlife and nature – Dartmoor was an obvious location.
At the end of July last year, I was lucky enough to conduct a wedding ceremony for Charlotte and Chris in Sidbury in East Devon, an area of outstanding natural beauty. Her parents’ farm looks straight down the Sid Valley to the sea and that was the chosen venue for their wedding.
I have three outstanding memories of the day when the lovely Dan and Kirstie were married at Deer Park Country House.Firstly, the weather. It really was the filthiest day weather-wise. Dear Dan couldn’t really hide his disappointment. After all it had been the most incredible summer and 22nd September was one of the few Saturdays when it had decided to really chuck it down.
