Chloe and Rob’s Festival Wedding



The scene was set for a festival themed wedding at Holsome Park near Diptford, Devon.

For Chloe and Rob, attending gigs and festivals together is a regular occurrence included attending V festival, Glastonbury, Reading and even Benicasim in Spain. Camping, dancing and having a great time in a field clearly linked to their chosen venue.

Chloe and her bridesmaids walked down the aisle to Times Like These by The Foo Fighters with all of their guests joining in with the chorus.

Their mothers lit a candle each before Chloe and Rob lit the main candle representing the coming together of their two lives and going forward into a shining lifetime together.

Chloe and Rob love spending time by the sea so the Sand Ceremony was perfect for them.  There was sand from Gwithian Beach, the beach where Chloe and Rob got engaged and sand from South Milton, their local beach that they regularly visit together.

They had also decided to have a Blessing of Rings so, as the box containing their rings was passed around the guests for their blessing, You’ve got the Love by Florence and the Machine was played.

It was also a moving moment when they exchanged their rings.

Chloe had made their hand fasting cord from three strands, including red for love, to represent the qualities they wanted to invite into their relationship. Once their hands were tied, they read their heartfelt Vows to each other.

After signing the Certificate, followed by their witnesses, our lovely couple kissed to cheers and applause before walking back down the aisle to I Bet you Look Good on the Dancefloor by Arctic Monkeys.

Chloe and Rob sent me the following testimonial:

Thank you Sarah for our incredible ceremony, it was exactly what we wanted.

It was so nice to be able to have a ceremony that was truly personal to us as a couple. You really captured our life together in words. Many of our guests commented on how beautiful it was.

You were very supportive throughout the whole process, providing recommendations for our vows and ideas for the ceremony.

I cannot recommend Sarah enough!

Renewal of Vows – Sand Ceremony



Each of you comes to this relationship with unique strengths, vulnerabilities, and histories. When the two of you are blended together, you form something even more amazing.

As the two containers of sand are poured into the vase, the separate colours of sand now blend into a new colour. You continue your journey in  marriage, loving and strong as husband and wife, as inseparable as these grains of sand.

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!

Ceremony Table Decoration



I perform many Beach and Sea themed Wedding and Renewal of Vows ceremonies as I live in South Devon.  Katie and James collected all the shells themselves to create this stunning table decoration.  They then returned the shells to the beach after their honeymoon.

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
