how to plan an at home wedding
what makes a great wedding celebrant
outdoor wedding ceremony the ultimate step by step guide

I’ve made it no secret that I love an outdoor wedding, but an outdoor wedding at home in the family garden is about the very best.  Especially if that garden is the pride and joy of one of the couples’ parents.  A wedding really does provide a reason for them to go that extra mile, indulge their passion and use all the fruits of their labour to decorate a marquee, create a beautiful home-grown bouquet and of course a backdrop for a ceremony.

So as summer draws to a close and autumn is beckoning as a part of our new regular Fanfare Favourites blog I thought I’d focus on some sunny elements.

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.
