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

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!

Renewal of Vows



Whether you have been together for one year, 35 years or even 75 years!  A Renewal or Vows ceremony reaffirms that your relationship has grown and means more to you than ever before and you will grow even closer in the future.   

A marriage can be tough but is cherishing and forgiving, settling for less than perfection, and compromising over the daily irritations in order to become stronger over time.  

A husband and wife can have conversations without saying a single word and they fall in love many times……always with the same person.

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 coupes 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! 

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.

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.

Sandwell Manor for Ceremonies



I have just come back from meeting Kizzy at Sandwell Manor near Totnes.  What an amazing venue for all your celebrations!  We talked about Weddings, Namings, Renewal of Vows and even Funeral ceremonies. You and your family and friends can stay for the weekend or even enjoy your celebration for a week.  There is a Pavilion, large house and beautiful grounds – even a glorious tree for your hand fasting ceremony.  As they are also only 2 miles from my home they are definitely my favourite venue!

Perfect for groups of family or friends to relax and create lasting memories

Have a look at their website and contact them for more information.
