Nikki & Steve’s Farm Wedding

At the beginning of May this year I presented a ceremony for Nikki and Steve. The venue was a marquee in the field on the family farm of Rose, Nikki’s childhood and bestest friend. This farm was a place where she always felt welcome. A home from home. Rose has played and continues to play a huge part in Nikki’s life, and we included a short paragraph in the script celebrating their special friendship.

The Rockbeare Wedding of Helena & Sam

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.

Kate & Rich’s Autumn Wedding at Baron’s Hill Barn

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.

Charlotte & Chris’ Wedding at the Bride’s Family Home

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.

The Deer Park Wedding of Kirstie and Dan

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.

Stranger Things – Who Will Conduct Your Ceremony?

I think it’s fair to say that your wedding day is high up on the momentous life events list. It therefore completely baffles me that most couples, who choose a civil ceremony, are happy for this huge occasion to be officiated by a total stranger.

Secret Vows For A Truly Heartfelt Wedding at Baron Hill Farm

On a dreary January day there is nothing better to lift the spirits than casting my mind back to a wonderful warm (boiling in fact) summer day last July.  I was back at Barons Hill Farm to conduct a ceremony, this time for the delightful Kirsty and Tom.

A Celebration at Canonteign Falls

Hello friends and a very Happy New Year to you all!  I hope you had a wonderful Christmas and if you were amongst those who got engaged over the festive period, many congratulations to you!!!

Joanne and Colin were married at Canonteign Falls in September. Their backdrop was the falls itself and they stood and exchanged vows under a pagoda overlooking Lily Lake.

Colin’s brother Graeme was his Best Man and Joanne was given away by Jonny, the son she never had. They adopted one another as mother and son before the ceremony. Joanne was also keen to make a special mention to her mother during the ceremony, whom had been a constant in her life and role model.

The wedding was light-hearted but sprinkled with great sincerity and perfectly reflected Colin’s sense of humour and the couples’ long-time friendship. I particularly love the accents of burgundy throughout the wedding party and proof that chivalry is not dead – Colin gave his jacket to Joanne during the ceremony to shelter her from the breeze coming across the lake.
