Cherish Ceremonies - curved design element

What we're sharing on Facebook


  Ive some more baby naming ceremonies booked for over the summer  and despite the FridayFunny cartoon every baby is beautiful CherishCeremonies shared Beas Bridal Boutiques post  CherishCeremonies shared Whats Ticking Todays photo  A little known fact   Although by law all life events must be entered into the countrys Registers you do NOT have to use the Registrars services for the ceremonial elements of those events    

Here is the explanation


For example you must register the birth but you can have a christeningnaming ceremonyadoption ceremony wherever you want it

At the end of life you must register the death but you can have the funeral ceremony wherever you want it

And you must register the marriage but you can have the wedding ceremony vows rings blessings etc wherever you want it No licensed premises necessary


If I can help further just ask   whatstickingtoday
  A busy day today  contacting all the July brides and finalising all the Cherish Dossiers    

Its also the day I write a quarterly cheque for the British Heart Foundation the Cherish 2015 charity and one for Sands for their June Awareness month CherishCeremonies shared Beas Bridal Boutiques photo  WOW  what a beautiful dress   1000  now 295   OUCH   Just in from first physio session on my broken shoulder  Restrictions on keyboard use   Yes okay I said    Off to find pen and paper      Skype calls all day tomorrow with Cherish couples
  Many happy returns of the day to   Katie a lovely celebrant of True Blue Ceremonies in Kent CherishCeremonies added 2 new photos  Off to Fawsley Hall  for a ceremony script review meeting with Lauren and Adam for their wedding in July    I love Fawsley Im proud that Ive been their recommended supplier for over 2 years now   Zoe and Mel  the new Mr and Mrs Williams  It was such a lovely ceremony that we created together  
Noone else will have the same wedding ceremony as Zoe and Mel  I write each one from a blank sheet of paper  Every one is unique to that couple
CherishCeremonies added 6 new photos  I had the pleasure of writing a lovely outdoor wedding ceremony with Matt and Hannah for their wedding back in May  They stripped it right back to be very simple yet very heartfelt  And they looked amazing as did their little boy Freddie   The weather played ball  a perfect May day   Fabulous photographs from Grace  The Heart   In case you were wondering  here is Russ my  Mr Cherish for over 26 years 
Currently finding himself with a broken shouldered wife  he is not only my chauffeur chef general slave he cuts up my dinner lifts and carries opens jars and fastens bras   Thank you Russ xx

He must be desperate for his life back   CherishCeremonies added 5 new photos  Congratulations Zoe and Mel  what a lovely happy wedding  They chose a ring blessing and a handfasting for their romantic Cherish Ceremony and the cords were in their chosen colours of peach aqua and ivory 

They also started their own memory box  They wrote Love Letters to one another which they  placed in the box to be read in 5 10 25 or even 50 years time  

The venue looked lovely  very pretty lots of lace and touches of hessian

Shhh  The groom cried when reading his vows
CherishCeremonies shared Compton Verneys photo  Look at this beautiful wildflower meadow Its at Compton Verney and Im proud to have helped enable it to happen by participating in the Crowdfunding  Im looking forward to my cream tea tour and tote bag  crowdfunderreward   A lovely thank you note  I love that people take the time and trouble to do this     Im proud that Ive not let the small matter of a broken shoulder get in the way of doing my wonderful job CherishCeremonies updated their cover photo
  Words to melt a heart of stone  If youve never read the true love story of Abelard and Heloise  then do    

To half my heart and part of my soul what I am I entrust to you I am yours as long as I live    

Whether you would like something from the classics or a bit of Morecambe and Wise in your ceremony I will research and help you select exactly the right reading for you CherishCeremonies added 5 new photos  Did you know today is PinkDay    Is it a colour youve used or are using for your wedding day   I knew I wanted pink in my Cherish logo as its softer than red but suggests love I took it to a hot pink for a touch of excitement and added purple because I also cover grief and loss in my range of ceremonies   

I just chose colours by instinct and when I look at the colour wheel I seem to have chosen exactly right for my Cherish brand   Favours   The little goodies that are added to place settings as a gift for guests  There are pages and pages in magazines and online devoted to this subject and its one that stresses brides out   Did you have favours or did you decide against it

The traditional favour was a bomboniere originating in Italy in French its a bonbonnire  a little tulle bag of 5 sugared almonds  The almonds represent the sweetness and bitterness that life brings and the number 5 is for Health Wealth Happiness Long Life and Fertility

Many other gifts are given these days from lottery tickets to home made jams  or even sweets  today is chocolateeclairday according to the folk over at Whats Ticking Today  so why not give a few toffees as your wedding favours  Just make sure the Best Man isnt given a toffee just before his speech
CherishCeremonies added 8 new photos  Such a lovely wedding all round  Nick and Katie are the nicest people their ceremony was a joy to write and perform  Having already had a Civil partnership ceremony they were keen to avoid the conveyor belt rushed feel they experienced with a Registrar   

Friends and family gathered at one of Yorks best kept sEcrets the fabulous Bedern Hall  Dating from the 14C its very stones ooze history 

After a day of showers the sun broke through for their big day 

The Arrival of The Queen of Sheba heralded the wedding party and 2 of the cutest little flower girls scattering deep red rose petals 

And then came Nick and Katie looking gorgeous and a bit nervous in matching cream silk Nehru coats with deep red gerbera buttonholes black trousers and black converse Ladies You lied about the stilettos

The ceremony was joyful and happy with readings Marriage is Madness The Two of Us and The Loving Cup

We included a ring warming where the girls rings were passed row by row so each guest could hold and bless them with their good wishes

After their vows which theyd written themselves and exchange of wedding rings Katie and Nick poured Chambord Liqueur and Champagne into their Loving Cup and they drank to their past their present and their future

It was then time for the final blessing and to pronounce them as Mrs and Mrs Wife and Wife  together for life

To the loud cheers of their lovely families and friends they left the Ceremony room  for champagne in the sunshine 

Thank you Nick and Katie for entrusting me with your wedding day   Whod have thought a chance meeting on Twitter a few years ago would have led to our friendship and then me being part of your Wedding Day

Every happiness ladies love you both xx
