Feedback from Haytor Ceremony

When we first met Sarah, she was warm and friendly and we felt relaxed with her as if she was on the same wavelength as us.

 Sarah had several suggestions for parts of the ceremony and was as keen as we were to ensure we included the elements that resonated with us.

 When we met Sarah again at the venue, for the rehearsal, Sarah was happy with some last-minute changes we made, including the option of moving the ceremony outside (weather permitting!).

 On the day, Sarah arrived early and even helped with the final preparations as the weather was perfect!

 Sarah performed the ceremony beautifully – it was exactly as we had envisaged and was truly magical. Our guests knew nothing about the ceremony’s structure, but Sarah guided us all through it effortlessly and all of our guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony was.

 We feel truly grateful to Sarah for giving us such a perfect wedding – she felt like part of the guests – and we cannot recommend her highly enough.IMG_8810 IMG_8805

Hay Tor – Tie the Knot

Wedding near Hay Tor with a Hand Fasting Ceremony.

Louise and Steve literally “Tied the Knot” in a beautiful ceremony overlooking Hay Tor, Dartmoor recently. The sun came out just before and we moved the ceremony outside. Thank you to Roy George for the gorgeous photos.IMG_8826

Japanese Wedding

The ceremonies I perform are all different and I was so pleased to be contacted by Keishu from Japan who was the interpreter for her friends Jin and Noriko.  They wanted to have a wonderful English wedding over here with all their families and friends and chose The Rectory in Malmesbury as their venue.  Many emails flew across the sea and we eventually met on the day for the rehearsal at 9am.  By this time I felt I knew them well and finally meeting them was lovely.

The Ceremony started at 2pm with a gong for the entrance of the bridegroom, Jin in full traditional Japanese dress.  Noriko then walked down the aisle with her proud father.  She was  wearing  a beautiful white wedding dress and looked beautiful.


They chose a Rose Ceremony to show the joining of their families, repeated vows that they had learnt in English, lit a candle then, after signing the register and Jin kissing his bride, they emerged into the cold autumn air and released balloons with wildflower seeds inside.

I was so proud to have been part of their day.
