Naming – Circle of Support



Please would you all come and stand around Daniel and his parents and link arms to form a circle.  Just as your hands have been linked to form a chain, so each of you will be a link in the future of this family.  As you now surround them, let this be a symbol that you are surrounding them with your love and care.

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!

Renewal of Vows – 40 years



June and Tom celebrated their Renewal of Vows after 40 years together!  Their ceremony was held in their garden and when it rained – we all ran into their gorgeous large sun room.  They both told stories of how they met and first impressions of each other, which made everyone laugh!

Their children and grandchildren made a Circle of Blessing around the couple and, as each said a few words, passed June and Tom’s wedding rings around the ribbons.

We celebrated with Champagne and afternoon tea.  Perfect!

Ceremonies and Children



When you decide to celebrate your love in a Wedding Ceremony or Renewal of Vows, include your children as they are such a big part of you both.  They can be Ring Bearers, place flowers in a vase, light a candle, join in a Sand Ceremony and Hand Fasting ceremony and, of course hand out the chocolates for the Chocolate Ritual!  They will remember your day for the rest of their lives.

Giving and Receiving of Rings



Giving and receiving of rings is one of the many ceremonies you can include in your Wedding or Renewal of Vows.

It is a token of your love and, in the presence of your family and friends, you promise to love each other unconditionally, to support each other in your dreams and ambitions and to honour and respect each other, to laugh and cry together and to cherish your relationship always.
