Giving and Receiving of Rings



Giving and receiving of rings is one of the many ceremonies you can include in your Wedding or Renewal of Vows.

It is a token of your love and, in the presence of your family and friends, you promise to love each other unconditionally, to support each other in your dreams and ambitions and to honour and respect each other, to laugh and cry together and to cherish your relationship always.

Wedding Ceremonies



Choosing a celebrant to deliver your wedding ceremony gives you a whole range of options that a registrar just can’t.  So….you can have your ceremony anywhere, not just licensed venues.  I have performed ceremonies in couples’ favourite places; beaches, woods, their own gardens, hotels, on boats, cliff tops.  I often recommend Middle Coombe Farm, Tiverton; The Barn, South Milton; Putsborough Beach in North Devon and Bovey Castle, Dartmoor.

Your ceremony can include: walking down an aisle, giving and blessing of rings, exchanging of vows, lighting of candles, poetry, even religious or spiritual words. Symbolic Rituals to unite you could include Rose Ceremony, Sand Ceremony, Hand Fasting and Jumping the Broom, often couples choose all of these!  I have even written Cocktail Rituals and Chocolate Ceremonies to make the wedding as personal and unique as you are.  Part of the fun is choosing which ones suit you the best!

Flower Ceremonies – Wedding



Flower Ceremonies bring your family and friends together as they place a flower each into the vase.

“I would now like to ask everyone who is holding an orange rose to come forward and place them into this vase.  An Orange rose is a symbol of enthusiasm, desire and excitement and are the elements that they would like to bring to their marriage.  The roses are placed in the vase along with all of your hopes, best wishes and love for them both”.

You then place your flowers in the vase as a symbol of your unity with your new families.

Adoption and Naming Ceremony



One of the most exciting events in a family’s life is the arrival of a new baby or child, whether by birth, adoption or joining of families and many of us would like to celebrate this occasion in a memorable and special way.

As an alternative to a Christening, a Naming Ceremony brings your family and friends together to acknowledge and introduce your child’s chosen name and to publicly declare your commitment to nurture and care for your child. It is wonderful to be able to declare your hopes and aspirations for the child’s future in a truly personal ceremony.

It is also the perfect solution when the parents belong to different faiths. The ceremony can have no religious content or include something of each faith to represent the values of both parents.

One family write to me recently:

Thank you so much for your beautiful ceremony to welcome Sam into our lives.  We adopted him at two years old and wanted to celebrate the uniting of our families after a period of heartbreak.  You made the day very special, thank you.

Naming Ceremony for twins



I recently created and performed a Naming ceremony for gorgeous twins – one boy and one girl.

As they had held hands since they were born, I also performed a Hand Fasting ceremony using cords

Orange for good luck and good fortune, yellow for learning and knowledge and green for balance and peace.  All of these elements that their parents would like to bring to their children’s lives.

I received a beautiful thank you letter:

I just wanted to write to say thank you so much. The ceremony was so perfect and exactly what I had imagined. There were some lovely comments from the guests about the feel of the day, and the lovely words that made the naming really special. People even approved of the length!! 

Seriously though, you really made it feel very individual and spiritual, without feeling contrived or forced. I now have fantastic memories! Thank you so much!
