Hand Fasting Ceremony



On one of the hottest and sunniest days of this year, we celebrated the wedding of Oliver and Dita at his parent’s farm.  They had chosen a Hand Fasting ceremony and the ribbon was made by Dita from her Mum’s collection of fabrics and symbolised so much to them both.  Oliver wrote a wonderful poem for his vows to his lovely bride and Dita moved us to tears with her vows:

 I cannot wait to spend the rest of our lives together, making mistakes and achieving great things in the process. You are my partner in crime, my confidante and the only one for me. 

As I wrapped their hands together with the ribbon, in front of their friends and family:

May these hands build a relationship of love, caring, and devotion.  May they remain tender and gentle as they nurture each other. 

Thank you, Dita and Oliver for these beautiful photographs of their glorious day.

Beach Renewal of Vows



On a warm sunny afternoon at Pentewan Sands, St Austell, Mark and Lisa celebrated their 10th Wedding Anniversary together.  Surrounded by family and friends, three little girls in white dresses entranced and all the boys digging in the sand, they made their vows to each other, exchanged rings and signed the certificate.I had asked Mark and Lisa the secret to their successful marriage and they told me that they had no idea!  However they asked their guests to send me their opinions and I shared those with everyone there on the beach.  Much laughter and tears later we raised our Mason jars full of bubbly to the happy couple.
