Renewal of Vows

What a memorable day!

Katie and James asked me to create a ceremony for their renewal of vows as they had been married for 5 years. We celebrated on the beach on Bank Holiday Monday – such beautiful weather. Katie and James then led the way out to the arch in kayaks to release paper boats containing all the wishes from their guests. Once the sea had absorbed all the boats – the wishes would come true. After a BBQ on the beach we watched the sun set. Memories are made of this……….





Katie sent me a thank you card:

Thank you for everything you did to make our renewal of vows ceremony so special.  It was one of the best days in our lives.

My husband Andy took photos and video of the ceremony and I will be adding a slideshow for you all to watch their special day so watch this space……

Afternoon Tea

23rd August 2013

My first funeral last week at the East Devon Crematorium up near Whimple.  A beautiful place, light and airy with great views over the countryside.  I received a Thank you card today:

On behalf of our family, thank you for acting as Celebrant at Mum’s funeral.  We felt completely confident with your presence and delighted at the content – I know we derived it together but we were not thinking clearly enough to deliver the result with the style and sensitivity and confidence you exuded.

Thank you for giving me the opportunity – I love meeting with families and creating a ceremony so personal to them.

Afternoon Tea for everyone.

Renewal of Vows

Bill and Elaine – 35 years. A memorable day in a beautiful garden. Congratulations!

What a beautiful day at Bill and Elaine’s garden recently for their 35th Wedding Anniversary – Renewal of Vows.  They invited all their close friends and family and Elaine made a delicious buffet including my favourite……cake pops!  The sun shone, the music soared and the balloons flew.  I had put wildflowers into the balloons so that where ever they fell, flowers would grow year after year.  Their children read such heartfelt poems and we all toasted them with glasses of champagne.


Perfect day for such a lovely couple.

Thank you Card – Butterflies

I have received a beautiful Thank you Card covered in butterflies from a family whose loved ones funeral was a couple of weeks ago.

“I would like to express our sincere gratitude for all your help in carrying out her funeral……so many friends and family have said it was a lovely service and just like her!…..I know that we could not have achieved this without your patience and guidance.  We relied on your sensitive nature and kindness and we were rewarded with your lovely interpretation of our words and poems.  Thank you so much it would have been too difficult without you.”

It was a pleasure to be part of this service and thank you for your words.
