Bev and Barney’s Wedding

There was so much love and laughter in Torbay Barn, Devon when Bev and Barnaby celebrated their wedding with their family and friends.  It was extra special for me as I had known Bev and her family for years and was so touched when she asked me to be a part of their wonderful day.

Even the rain didn’t dampen their happiness as Bev walked down the aisle with her dad to greet her new husband, Barnaby.

After exchanging rings, the couple had chosen to have a Hand Fasting ceremony and promised to share each other’s laughter, and look for the brightness in life and the positive in each other

Bev’s dad, Chris, tied the knot…..

…..before Bev and Barnaby read their heartfelt Vows to each other and signed the certificate.

They walked back down the aisle to cheers and confetti to I’m a Believer by Smash Mouth

Their beloved dogs also joined in the ceremony!

“Thank you Sarah, it was the best day ever” – Bev and Barnaby

Have a wonderful life together and remember that being deeply loved by someone gives you strength, while loving someone deeply gives you courage.

Associate of the Guild of Cornish Celebrants

The Guild of Cornish Celebrants has been set up by Denise and Nicola to promote quality celebratory ceremonies which fully reflect the wishes and beliefs of the couples and families they work with. The aim of The Guild is to give an assurance of excellence – they are passionate about providing bespoke and unique ceremonies for any occasion. The hallmarks of a mediaeval ‘Guild’ were their professional ability and demonstrated accomplishment; they are redefining the ‘Guild’ concept for the 21st century, bringing a traditional quality standard to a new contemporary offering, ensuring ceremonies from the Guild always meet or exceed our clients’ expectations.

After a very successful meeting with Nicola and Denise from the Guild of Cornish Celebrants, I am pleased to announce that I am now an Associate of the Guild performing ceremonies in Devon for them.  I will continue to help you create and then conduct your unique and individual Ceremony where ever and whenever you wish.  I believe that your Ceremony is at the very heart of your day.

Together we will create meaningful memories, which will bind you closer and give joy to all the special people on your special day.

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.

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 couples 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!

Milky Way Wedding 6 – Cheers and Cake

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

After their Ceremony, Jo and Monique walked down the aisle together as everyone stood and cheered!  Their guests made an arch for them to walk through as Savage Garden was sung by Yazzy.

Their glorious cake was made by their friend Graham – lemon drizzle and carrot cake, chosen by Jo and Monique after a lengthy tasting session.  I had created and performed Graham and Sue’s Wedding Ceremony 18 months before and it was so wonderful to see them again!

Jo and Monique’s wedding was full of laughter, tears and so much love and I felt privileged to be asked to create such an amazing ceremony and to be a part of their celebrations.  They continued to celebrate into the evening as we all had a turn on the Dodgems as part of  The Milky Way Adventure Park.

Congratulations Jo and Monique!!

May you live as long as you want and never want as long as you live

Milky Way Wedding 5 – Cocktail Ritual

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

Jo and Monique also LOVE Cocktails so, of course, I wrote a Cocktail Ceremony just for them!

Everyone clapped as their Wedding Planner and best friend Charlotte pushed the Cocktail trolly down the aisle accompanied to Yazzy playing Havana.

Each ingredient had a special meaning to the couple including the Grenadine, a sweet syrup made from pomegranates, to represent knowledge, learning and wisdom.  After much laughter they drank their new cocktail The Saunton Sunrise which represented living the dream in North Devon and having such wonderful and loving family and friends.
