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”.

 

Milky Way Wedding 1 – Arrival



Jo and Monique planned their gorgeous Wedding Celebration at The Milky Way near Clovelly, North Devon with attention to detail.  Their seating plan for the Ceremony and the Order of Events were amazing.  By 3pm everyone was sitting and waiting for Jo with her Best Woman Debs to arrive followed by Monique and her god daughter Ellie.

Cliff top Wedding Ceremony



A glorious day for Aimee and Tom’s wedding as I performed a Flower Ceremony as part of their personal Wedding Ceremony.

They chose pink peonies for a happy marriage, white roses for new beginnings, purity and charm and blue hydrangeas for gratitude.  These were the elements that they would like to bring to their marriage.  Family and friends placed their flowers in the vase along with all of their hopes, best wishes and love for them both.

They wrote a beautiful email afterwards with their photographs and these words:

We wanted to say a big thank you for the incredible ceremony, so many people comments on how lovely it was.  Thanks again

Celebrating a Life Well Lived



I always  go to the family’s home so that we can share a cup of tea, they can explain the photo on the mantlepiece and have an ordinary conversation about planning this extraordinary occasion.  It is always lovely to receive feedback from a ceremony and confirm I have done a good job!  We listened to his favourite composer, George Gershwin, playing I Got Rhythm as he definitely had lots of rhythm!

Just wanted to thank you so much for creating such a beautiful service for my Uncle.

I really appreciate your approach to funeral services namely “celebrating” someone’s life as opposed to commiserating their loss, this results in a lighter feeling service which is much more positively focused.

I thought you were wonderful!!

Kebar and Andrew’s Wedding




Kebar and Andrew said their Vows in front of all their family and friends at East Soar Farm in the gorgeous barn.    After exchanging rings, they played We’re going to be friends by The White Stripes as their friends Fin and Brian handed round the chocolates ready for the Chocolate Ritual.  Kebar sent me these beautiful photos taken by The Vintage Wedding Photographer  and wrote:

Our wedding day was absolutely amazing and we are so happy that Sarah was part of our special day. We love East Soar Outdoor Experience and without Sarah’s help our wedding day would not have been possible! We are so grateful to have met you and that you helped us to get married, by leading our blessing, in the place that we felt most connected to. Thank you Sarah.”
