_DSC5792 (1)On one of the hottest days of the year, Naomi and Graham celebrated their Renewal of Vows  on Watergate Bay beach.  We walked across the golden sand to a quiet secluded area near the cliffs and, with their son, Devon, they spoke of their love and happiness to be able to share their lives together.

After exchanging new rings, they chose to include the tradition of hand-fasting into their ceremony. Hand-fasting is a ritual in which the couples’ hands are tied together as a symbol of their lives being joined together.

As Tara Statton, the photographer, walked down to the sea with Naomi and Graham, I helped Devon make hearts out of pebbles in the sand.

A glorious ceremony for a very special couple.
