Renewal of Vows – Beach Ceremony



Spending time by the sea is good for the soul, invite your guests to your favourite beach and, after the ceremony, join hands and paddle!

Associate of the Guild of Cornish Celebrants



The Guild of Cornish Celebrants has been set up by Denise and Nicola to promote quality celebratory ceremonies which fully reflect the wishes and beliefs of the couples and families they work with. The aim of The Guild is to give an assurance of excellence – they are passionate about providing bespoke and unique ceremonies for any occasion. The hallmarks of a mediaeval ‘Guild’ were their professional ability and demonstrated accomplishment; they are redefining the ‘Guild’ concept for the 21st century, bringing a traditional quality standard to a new contemporary offering, ensuring ceremonies from the Guild always meet or exceed our clients’ expectations.

After a very successful meeting with Nicola and Denise from the Guild of Cornish Celebrants, I am pleased to announce that I am now an Associate of the Guild performing ceremonies in Devon for them.  I will continue to help you create and then conduct your unique and individual Ceremony where ever and whenever you wish.  I believe that your Ceremony is at the very heart of your day.

Together we will create meaningful memories, which will bind you closer and give joy to all the special people on your special day.

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!

Katie and James Kayak Ceremony



Katie and James celebrated with a ceremony on South Milton Beach in Devon.  Each guest wrote wishes for the couple on rice paper and made them into boats.  Katie and James read such beautiful heartfelt Vows to each other then led all the guests in Kayaks out to the rock to release the paper boats to the elements.

After a delicious BBQ, prepared by James’ dad and brother, we sat watching the sunset

North Devon Beach Wedding



We celebrated the wedding of Katie and Chris on Saturday in a unique and beautiful ceremony on Putsborough Sands in North Devon.  Their guests had created the aisle by building sandcastles to guide Katie, her father, her bridesmaids and her two gorgeous dogs to the Arch.

They chose a Sand Ceremony  with sand from Spain and Devon blending their families into a new family and, as Katie and Chris combined their sand it symbolised the start of their journey in marriage with a promise that they will be loving and strong and as inseparable as the grains of sand.

Lola, their dog, brought up the rings and stayed by their side as they said their Vows to each other.  Their celebrations carried on long into the night – the complete photographs can be seen on:  www.projectvalentine.co.uk

RENEWAL OF VOWS 2016



Every year I feel privileged to write and conduct the Renewal of vows for Naomi and Graham founders of http://www.weddingwishingwell.org.uk/default.html

Naomi and Graham chose Watergate Bay in Cornwall for their 4th Wedding Anniversary.  It was another hot day as they had their rings blessed, read their vows to each other and I performed a Hand Fasting ceremony.

May this knot of love remain forever tied, and may these hands be blessed. 

May they always be held by one another.

May they have the strength to hold on tightly during the storms of life. 

May they remain tender and gentle as they nurture each other. 

May these hands build a relationship of love, caring, and devotion. 

May you both see each other’s hands as healer, protector, shelter and guide.

As this lovely couple paddled in the sea, I helped their son Devon make a pebble picture on the sand.
