Renewal of Vows at Kitley

Dear Sarah

Thank you so much for conducting our renewal of vows last weekend.  It was beautifully put together and everyone was really moved.

The flower ceremony worked a treat and your sensitivity and professionalism impressed everyone.

I was glad you could help us with the cream tea, we were all fit to burst afterwards!

Feedback from Haytor Ceremony

When we first met Sarah, she was warm and friendly and we felt relaxed with her as if she was on the same wavelength as us.

 Sarah had several suggestions for parts of the ceremony and was as keen as we were to ensure we included the elements that resonated with us.

 When we met Sarah again at the venue, for the rehearsal, Sarah was happy with some last-minute changes we made, including the option of moving the ceremony outside (weather permitting!).

 On the day, Sarah arrived early and even helped with the final preparations as the weather was perfect!

 Sarah performed the ceremony beautifully – it was exactly as we had envisaged and was truly magical. Our guests knew nothing about the ceremony’s structure, but Sarah guided us all through it effortlessly and all of our guests commented on how beautiful the ceremony was.

 We feel truly grateful to Sarah for giving us such a perfect wedding – she felt like part of the guests – and we cannot recommend her highly enough.IMG_8810 IMG_8805

Hay Tor – Tie the Knot

Wedding near Hay Tor with a Hand Fasting Ceremony.

Louise and Steve literally “Tied the Knot” in a beautiful ceremony overlooking Hay Tor, Dartmoor recently. The sun came out just before and we moved the ceremony outside. Thank you to Roy George for the gorgeous photos.IMG_8826

South African Wedding

Alexa and Cobus flew over from South Africa in June to have their wedding celebration at Deer Park Hotel near Honiton, leaving their remote farm in the hands of Cobus’s father.  Alexa walked into the room on her father’s arm to Vivaldi’s “Spring” played by a wonderful violinist accompanied by a piano.  They exchanged rings and made vows in front of their family and friends.  After signing a certificate they led the way onto the terrace for canapes and champagne.

Many weeks later they signed their papers in South Africa.  A long life full of happiness to Mr and Mrs Nolte.


The vows I take will be forever;IMG_0163

I’ll love you all my life,

There’s no part way, no holding back

Once we are man and wife.

The choice is made, and now I swim

In a far different sea,

The shores of which are bright green hills

Raised up for you and me.

DSCF3633Our love is like a mountainside

Awash in lovely flowers:

It is our home, our solid rock,

Where all bright things are ours.

And though of need we often must

Spend our days apart,

Our love will always be with us,

Held within our hearts


Hand Fasting Ceremony

On one of the hottest and sunniest days of this year, we celebrated the wedding of Oliver and Dita at his parent’s farm.  They had chosen a Hand Fasting ceremony and the ribbon was made by Dita from her Mum’s collection of fabrics and symbolised so much to them both.  Oliver wrote a wonderful poem for his vows to his lovely bride and Dita moved us to tears with her vows:

 I cannot wait to spend the rest of our lives together, making mistakes and achieving great things in the process. You are my partner in crime, my confidante and the only one for me. 

As I wrapped their hands together with the ribbon, in front of their friends and family:

May these hands build a relationship of love, caring, and devotion.  May they remain tender and gentle as they nurture each other. 

Thank you, Dita and Oliver for these beautiful photographs of their glorious day.
