Ellie and Joe’s Wedding



Ellie and Joe wrote:  I just wanted to say thank you for everything you did you make our ceremony so perfect

It was a glorious day as we celebrated Ellie and Joe’s wedding in Ellie’s parents garden.  We watched the bride and her father following her Bridesmaids and Flower Girl as they walked from the house to the field to meet her handsome groom.

What is a Marriage?  

What is a marriage? 

It’s loving and cherishing, hopefully relishing

Its hosting and toasting and Sunday roasting

Its having and holding, the odd little scolding

It’s guessing, confessing and nightly undressing

It’s trying, relying, a little white lying

It’s snoring, adoring, occasionally boring

It’s knowing and showing and mutually growing

It’s compliment giving and always forgiving

It’s sharing and caring and dressing gown wearing

It’s walking, its talking and bottle uncorking

It’s tender supporting and raucous cavorting

It’s secret confiding and shoulder providing

It’s readily praising and often amazing

It’s loving, respecting and calmly accepting

It’s cleaning, its mopping, its waltzing and bopping

Its needing, conceding and possibly breeding

It’s playing and paying, its coping and staying

It’s comfort when weeping, a warm body sleeping

It’s lives interweaving and always believing

That’s what makes a marriage.

 

Their hand fasting cord was made of three strands with their beautiful dog Luna’s fur woven into the white ribbon;

White– Wholeness, completion and inspiration

Green – Growth, prosperity and balance

Blue – Understanding, patience and loyalty

They walked back down the aisle as their guests cheered and threw lavender and rose petals!

 

NAOMI AND GRAHAM – RENEWAL OF VOWS 2018



On a beautiful hot day in early June, Naomi and Graham renewed their vows – again.  I have been privileged to create and perform Renewal of Vows Ceremonies for this lovely couple each year.  Thank you Naomi and Graham for asking me to be a part of your amazing story.

This couple are awe inspiring as, after a diagnosis of cancer in 2012, they set up The Wedding Wishing Well Foundation and now organise and fund weddings for those affected by terminal and life-limiting illnesses, helping them to enjoy married life before it’s too late.

“Thank you so much once again for writing and conducting such a beautiful blessing for us.  6th June is so special to us, not just because it is out anniversary, but because we get to spend it with you.  You are a special friend.”

Dita and Oliver’s wedding ceremony was in their garden in front of their many guests.  Oliver write a poem to his beloved Dita, such a personal and unique way to make his vows.

To be loved is to know happiness and contentment. To give love is to know the joy of sharing oneself. It is through the miracle of love that we discover the fullness of life.

I have such happy memories of all my Wedding Ceremonies and the gorgeous couples.  This one took my breath away as the Italian bride brought this Murano glass chandelier all the way from Venice!

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
