Beach Ceremony – with Kayaks



Beach Ceremonies in Devon – create memories which will last forever.  For Beach lovers everywhere.

Glazebrook House Wedding



When I first met Sue and Graham they told me they wanted a ceremony that reflected their personalities and was full of joy and laughter. As you can see, between us we achieved this and much more.

After lighting a candle in memory of their loved ones, we passed two ribbons around the circle of guests –

Gold for the masculine energy and represents creativity, financial richness and Magical power and Silver for the female energy and symbolises emotional stability, dreams and protection from negative energies.

Their rings were threaded onto the ribbons and blessed by family and friends

Their close friend Tony tied the knot before Sue and Graham made their vows to each other.

“May the blessing of each of us be felt by you.

Go now to walk the ways of the world together,

and may your days be good and long upon the earth”.

Thank you so much for conducting our wedding ceremony, it was perfect in every way, thanks to your patience, kindness and guidance.

You took the time to get to know us and understand exactly what we wanted, making the ceremony so beautiful and personal to us.

The day was filled with so much love and laughter. Our guests enjoyed being involved in the “circle of ring blessing” and loved that we shared our own vows, both funny and emotional with them following the handfasting.

Many said that they had never been to a wedding quite like ours, using words like unique, beautiful and wonderful.

Thank you again for a perfect day.

Love and Blessings

Sue & Graham

   

Woodland Wedding



Phil owns a wood near Linkinhorne, Cornwall and asked me to perform a wedding ceremony there to celebrate 18 years of being together with his beloved Shari.

At this point on their journey together they wanted to take this time, in this beautiful place with family and friends, to acknowledge and celebrate the journey so far and also to look ahead.

Their guests collected flowers and leaves from the woodland and I asked them all to come forward and place them in the wooden platter (made by Phil) as a symbol of their unity.

The Circle of Blessing Ceremony had two ribbons, one was green for growth, healing, home and peace. The other ribbon was brown for stability, protection of the household and to strengthen their relationship.  Their family rings were passed around the circle for their family and friends to bless.

Phil and Shari exchanged rings and I performed a Hand Fasting ceremony to seal their love.

“Shari and Phil, look to all your tomorrows with sustained hope and a strong commitment to your marriage.  May those of you who have witnessed this ceremony continue to support them, honour and respect their relationship and wish them joy in their future.”

We drank a toast to the happy couple out of wooden goblets lovingly made by Phil from trees in his wood.

Thanks again for helping to make our day very individual and special.

We were very happy – even in the rain!

Shari and Phil

Renewal of Vows



What a memorable day!

Katie and James asked me to create a ceremony for their renewal of vows as they had been married for 5 years. We celebrated on the beach on Bank Holiday Monday – such beautiful weather. Katie and James then led the way out to the arch in kayaks to release paper boats containing all the wishes from their guests. Once the sea had absorbed all the boats – the wishes would come true. After a BBQ on the beach we watched the sun set. Memories are made of this……….

 

 

 

 

Katie sent me a thank you card:

Thank you for everything you did to make our renewal of vows ceremony so special.  It was one of the best days in our lives.

My husband Andy took photos and video of the ceremony and I will be adding a slideshow for you all to watch their special day so watch this space……
