Wedding and Family Celebrant

What a wonderful day yesterday was!
The new Mr & Mrs Campbell-Barr gave men(and Kev from headoverheels photography) the absolute privilege of playing a small part in their big day.

Braxted Park is a stunning location, the staff were amazing AND apparently I was their first celebrant wedding!

The attention to detail by the groom was second to none…Don’t tell the Bride, come speak to this groom about how to get it RIGHT! 

The bride….beautiful ….doesn’t cover it…can’t wait to see the pics

So much to remember, from such a fabulous day.
Congratulations Gordon and Sue, thank you for the honour of being your celebrant

What a fabulous afternoon yesterday…I had so much fun designing and conducting a ceremony for Simon & Teresa…We giggled and guffawed as we came up with the perfect script for them…and luckily all of the guests found it just as funny as we did!

Thats the difference using a celebrant REALLY makes…Your story is told in just the right way.Anything goes and when it comes to blending families the sand ceremony is a perfect way to do it…

Simon & Teresa I wish you a lifetime of happiness.
Amber, you did an amazing job as wedding planner for your mum and Simon….You could do it professionally.
And Kian, you were wonderful, you clearly make everyone so proud and with such good reason.
The Excells will truly excel at this marriage malarky…there is so much love between them and surrounding them,it was an honour to play just a little part in their big day…..

Love shines bright xxx

The beauty of an English summer wedding

It’s been an amazing few months so far, the weather has been kind to us all enabling some wonderful outdoor ceremonies. 

Last weekend I had the absolute pleasure to conduct a ceremony overlooking the beautiful Dedham Vale. I know now why Constable and other artists were drawn to this area to paint its outstanding natural beauty…There is no better backdrop than the English Countryside in full bloom. Couple that with 2 awesome families, lots of fantastic friends,self penned music, a stunning bride and pretty handsome groom, it is a definite recipe for a wonderful celebration of life and love.

Congratulations Mr & Mrs Morris~Watson.

Sometimes this job throws up the most amazing opportunities and allows me, as a Celebrant, to explore cultural and spiritual avenues I would not have otherwise travelled. Today I conducted the most amazing Shamanic based wedding ceremony. It included a spiritual smudging with white sage to cleanse the wedding area, the couple and their rings. Followed by an uplifting hand fasting with 8 cords,where promises were made to each other, friends and families and culminating in a very fun broom jump, as they left their old lives and moved forward together into their new lives…..Thank you Mr & Mrs Abson for such an awesome opportunity and I wish you so much love and light as you start  your wedded life together.
