North Devon Beach Wedding



We celebrated the wedding of Katie and Chris on Saturday in a unique and beautiful ceremony on Putsborough Sands in North Devon.  Their guests had created the aisle by building sandcastles to guide Katie, her father, her bridesmaids and her two gorgeous dogs to the Arch.

They chose a Sand Ceremony  with sand from Spain and Devon blending their families into a new family and, as Katie and Chris combined their sand it symbolised the start of their journey in marriage with a promise that they will be loving and strong and as inseparable as the grains of sand.

Lola, their dog, brought up the rings and stayed by their side as they said their Vows to each other.  Their celebrations carried on long into the night – the complete photographs can be seen on:  www.projectvalentine.co.uk

Milky Way Wedding 2 – Sand Ceremony



Jo and Monique planned their gorgeous Wedding Celebration at The Milky Way near Clovelly, North Devon.

Once everyone was welcomed, including family who had come all the way from New Zealand and Switzerland, I told the story of how Jo and Monique met – it involved a nudist beach, a plastic bag and a dog!!  As Jo and Monique are surfers and love beaches they chose a Sand Ceremony layering sand from Man Sands and Saunton in Devon.  They then blended their sand together:

“You have now blended your families into a new family, as you start your journey in marriage, loving and strong, as inseparable as these grains of sand”.

Sand Ceremony Wedding



Sara brought sand from Wollongong, New South Wales, Australia where she spent a lot of her time before moving to England.

Jon brought sand from Teignmouth, Devon and is where Jonathan and Sara’s new life in England began.

As the two containers of sand poured into the vase, the separate colours of sand blend into a new colour. Sara and Jon have now blended their families into a new family, as they start their journey in marriage, loving and strong as husband and wife, as inseparable as these grains of sand.

This is just a quick email to say a massive THANK YOU for celebrating our wedding renewal last Saturday. It was a truly beautiful ceremony and one that we will remember with as much fondness as our Australia one. Our guests continue to comment on how lovely it was and how much they enjoyed being a part of it.
