It was a hot, sunny day in August in deepest Cornwall when Mark and his beautiful bride Tamara had their Wedding Ceremony.  The bride’s family had travelled all the way from Italy and Tamara’s best friend translated the vows and promises into Italian for the guests.  Even the Alpacas were groomed and smiling!  Mark had built a special wooden structure just for the Ceremony and Tamara had imported a Murano glass Chandelier which was lit throughout the day.

Their guests were rapt as I performed a Handfasting Ceremony for Mark and Tamara followed by a standing ovation.  At the end of the beautiful ceremony which included poems from Mark’s children, vows written by the couple and spoken (for the first time) to each other and signing a certificate, Mark and Tamara released balloons with wildflower seeds inside to express their love for each other.  The toast said it all:  “May you live as long as you want and never want as long as you live”
