Funeral Flowers and Memories 6



Create a shadow box.

Using dried, pressed flowers, photographs and other mementos, families can create small memorial pieces to place in their home in honour of their loved one. These take little effort and supplies, Hobbycraft can supply the boxes, and the act of building something special and combing through photos and tokens can help families navigate their grief in the days or weeks that follow the service.

Hand Fasting by the sea



Chloe and Mark wanted to celebrate their growing family – they have 4 beautiful children between them – with a Hand Fasting ceremony overlooking the sea at The Barn, South Milton, Devon.  Their son was the Ring Bearer and did an excellent job accompanied by his rabbit!

Chloe made the Hand Fasting cords using three ribbons

Pink for Romance, caring, nurturing, Green for Peace, home, children and  Blue for Loyalty and honour, sincerity and devotion.

Chloe and Mark see these as the qualities and elements that that they invited into their relationship and affirmations for their marriage.

They asked their friends to witness their vows by signing the Certificate.

Sarah was a fantastic help from the first time we contacted her. She offered great guidance and advice and helped us create a ceremony that suited us. Sarah conducted a beautiful ceremony that we will never forget. Many of our guests commented on how lovely and engaging the ceremony was. We are thoroughly thrilled. Thank you!

Woodland Wedding



Phil owns a wood near Linkinhorne, Cornwall and asked me to perform a wedding ceremony there to celebrate 18 years of being together with his beloved Shari.

At this point on their journey together they wanted to take this time, in this beautiful place with family and friends, to acknowledge and celebrate the journey so far and also to look ahead.

Their guests collected flowers and leaves from the woodland and I asked them all to come forward and place them in the wooden platter (made by Phil) as a symbol of their unity.

The Circle of Blessing Ceremony had two ribbons, one was green for growth, healing, home and peace. The other ribbon was brown for stability, protection of the household and to strengthen their relationship.  Their family rings were passed around the circle for their family and friends to bless.

Phil and Shari exchanged rings and I performed a Hand Fasting ceremony to seal their love.

“Shari and Phil, look to all your tomorrows with sustained hope and a strong commitment to your marriage.  May those of you who have witnessed this ceremony continue to support them, honour and respect their relationship and wish them joy in their future.”

We drank a toast to the happy couple out of wooden goblets lovingly made by Phil from trees in his wood.

Thanks again for helping to make our day very individual and special.

We were very happy – even in the rain!

Shari and Phil

Funeral Flowers and Memories 5



Create a memorial wreath. After funeral flowers have been dried in the sun or on your windowsill buy twine and a foam cylinder from Hobbycraft or your local florist to create a beautiful wreath. This can be hung near family photos or even on the front door, so families can feel the presence of their loved one every time they return home.

Bovey Castle – Owl Ring Bearer



Anastasia and Martin celebrated their Wedding at Bovey Castle witnessed by their family and friends who were amazed when the rings were delivered by an OWL!

I look forward to receiving more photographs.

Thank you so much for making our wedding the most memorable day of our life. It was PERFECT and it couldn’t have been done without your hard work.  We continue to receive comments from guests about how amazing everything was. Thank you for reading our vows and  bringing tears to so many people’s eyes. It was such a special day and we will cherish the memories for a long time. We will send pictures for the “portfolio” when we get them but didn’t want to delay any longer sending our gratitude! Martin and I are eternally grateful.
