Wedding Ceremonies – Ideas

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!

Poems for Ceremonies – 5


This photo was taken in Tokyo on our visit recently.  This lovely couple were making plans for their wedding over an Obento lunch.


Including Guests in your Ceremony

Flower Ceremonies bind family and friends together.  As part of the Wedding or Renewal of Vows Ceremony, I ask everyone to come forward and place a flower each in the vase along with all of their hopes, best wishes and love for the couple.

I then ask the happy couple to exchange their flowers and add them to the bouquet.   

Thanks to Tara Statton Photography for another of her excellent photographs.

Heartfelt poems mean so much in your Wedding ceremony.  At our first meeting, I can suggest poems or you may like to include your own favourites.


Ceremonies and Children

Families mean so much and it is important to many couples to include children, their own or family members, into their ceremony.  I am able to suggest many different ways to include children in your ceremony.

The smiles say it all!  Both these gorgeous ladies told me they felt like Fairy Princesses on their wedding day.


Creating your Ceremony

At our first meeting, I listen to all your ideas, wishes and dreams and suggest ideas to make your ceremony as heartfelt as possible.  I then create a Checklist for you to complete so that I can write your personal ceremony.

Writing your own Vows to read to your loved one at your Wedding may seem difficult but just speak from your heart.  Of course you can also use other peoples poems and words to help you!
