Maggie’s Ceremony



I received wonderful feedback from my friend Chris Dew recently.  I felt pleased and privileged to perform her mother’s ceremony and I find it hard to believe that my relationship with her lovely family has lasted for over 30 years!  At the end of the ceremony I handed out paper hearts of forget me not seeds so that year after year the flowers will blossom in memory of Maggie.

I have known Sarah for many years so l had no hesitation in asking her to conduct the service for our final farewell  to my mother. Sarah is passionate  about her work and she sensitively and carefully guided us through what should be included in our service. She had a wealth of ideas to make the service personal and meaningful. 

Relatives and friends attending the service were thoroughly impressed by Sarah’s compassion and professionalism and all felt the service was a perfect way to say goodbye to my mother and celebrate her life.

Wedding Ceremonies



Choosing a celebrant to deliver your wedding ceremony gives you a whole range of options that a registrar just can’t.  So….you can have your ceremony anywhere, not just licensed venues.  I have performed ceremonies in couples’ favourite places; beaches, woods, their own gardens, hotels, on boats, cliff tops.  I often recommend Middle Coombe Farm, Tiverton; The Barn, South Milton; Putsborough Beach in North Devon and Bovey Castle, Dartmoor.

Your ceremony can include: walking down an aisle, giving and blessing of rings, exchanging of vows, lighting of candles, poetry, even religious or spiritual words. Symbolic Rituals to unite you could include Rose Ceremony, Sand Ceremony, Hand Fasting and Jumping the Broom, often couples choose all of these!  I have even written Cocktail Rituals and Chocolate Ceremonies to make the wedding as personal and unique as you are.  Part of the fun is choosing which ones suit you the best!

Poems for Ceremonies – 5



 

This photo was taken in Tokyo on our visit recently.  This lovely couple were making plans for their wedding over an Obento lunch.

Ceremony and Guests



Flower Ceremonies bind family and friends together.  As part of the Wedding or Renewal of Vows Ceremony, I ask everyone to come forward and place a flower each in the vase along with all of their hopes, best wishes and love for the couple.

I then ask the happy couple to exchange their flowers and add them to the bouquet.   

Thanks to Tara Statton Photography for another of her excellent photographs.

Poems for Ceremonies – 4



Heartfelt poems mean so much in your Wedding ceremony.  At our first meeting, I can suggest poems or you may like to include your own favourites.

Ceremonies and Children



Families mean so much and it is important to many couples to include children, their own or family members, into their ceremony.  I am able to suggest many different ways to include children in your ceremony.
