Natural Burial Site



We are fortunate in Devon to have a beautiful Natural Burial Site near Aveton Gifford, Kingsbridge.

I have performed many Funeral ceremonies there and highly recommend it.  It is a peaceful place that offers a truly beautiful alternative to a traditional cemetery.  Families can choose to bury their loved ones or scatter their ashes within the peaceful grounds.  The only accompaniment you need is birdsong and the breeze through the trees.

Flamingo Wedding in Cornwall



Flamingos and Sunshine – Isobel and Chris celebrated their wedding on the farm in Cornwall with a candle ceremony, flower ceremony and exchange of rings.

Thank you so much Sarah for conducting our personal, poignant and most beautiful ceremony.  Many of our guests had never been to a Celebrant ceremony before and they commented on how it was one of the most  special and unique wedding ceremonies they had ever been too.

Thank you also for your advice for when we had writers block for our vows and keeping Chris calm on the day!
With best wishes
Izzy and Chris x

Happiness and best wishes to our gorgeous couple.

Absolute Beginners

I’ve nothing much to offer

There’s nothing much to take

I’m an absolute beginner

And I’m absolutely sane

As long as we’re together

The rest can go to hell……

……….I absolutely love you

But we’re absolute beginners

But if my love is your love

We’re certain to succeed

Funeral Flowers and Memories 8



Donate to Home and Hospitals

Hospitals, hospice centres, nursing homes and other facilities will often accept the donated flowers from the funeral service, which can bring brightness and fragrance and uplifting feelings to patients and staff there.  My mother’s Care Home loves receiving beautiful flowers.

Cambodian/Devon Renewal of Vows



Alin and Mark met in Phnom Penh in Cambodia in 2007 and when Mark first saw her, all he could think about was her beautiful smile.  Three children have brought joy and happiness to them both and they look forward to sharing many more happy family times in the future.

 

They decorated their ceremony table in the traditional Cambodian way with fruit, flowers and candles. Amanda and Monica threw rose petals to lead their mum down the aisle and their son, David, was an excellent Ring Bearer.

After lighting three candles they asked their guests to bring forward red roses to place in a vase to represent love, respect and romance – affirmations for their relationship.

The ceremony also included Hand Fasting – Alin made a beautiful cord in blue, red and white – the colours of the Union Jack but also the Cambodian flag!  She wove in birthstones for their children.

Mark’s mother, Jane, wrote a heartfelt thank you the next day.

Wow! Just wanted to say another big thank you.  The ceremony blew everyone away especially the touches that you brought to it, bringing the Cambodian and British cultures together in such a lovely way.  There were quite a few surreptitious tears too.  Everyone also loved the thoughts about Alin’s family and those no longer with us.  All in all, it was a marvellous day, meaningful, emotional, poignant, ecstatic and fun.  Everything and more than Mark and Alin had hoped for.

If you ever need a reference, count me in.  I thought you were totally wonderful.  
With much love from all of us

PS  Amanda is available for petal collections now!
