Milky Way Wedding 4 – Wine Box Ritual



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

As Jo and Monique love their wine, they chose a Wine Box Ritual to celebrate their Wedding.

Each wine matures until it is ready.  It waits patiently until that perfect moment when it is finally right to be savoured and shared

On the anniversary of your wedding it is important to remember the love you feel today and the commitments you will make.  By drinking this wine together each year you will renew your vows and express your love.

They placed their Hand Fasting cords and Vows in the box.

Monique and Jo told me that they will add beads every year to their Hand Fasting cords for the new breaks they have surfed.  Every year they will read their vows to each other again – just a reminder!!

Milky Way Wedding 3 – Hand Fasting



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

They exchanged rings then I performed their Hand Fasting Ceremony.  Hand fasting is a wedding ritual in which the couples’ hands are tied together as a symbol of their lives being joined together.

They had made their cords from 5 different strands including a red ribbon which was decorated with dog paws representing their beloved dogs Kai and Fin. 

They also included a yellow throw line (Let’s hope they will never have to paddle a river and need rescuing 20 metres apart as their new 20 metre throw line is now a few feet shorter!)

Surfer Nalu beads were attached from every beach they have surfed together and they had also woven into the cords a silver compass bead and the SAS badge which represents Surfers Against Sewage their clean beach charity.

After I had tied the knot, Jo and Monique read their Vows to each other amidst much laughter and tears.

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
