Cherish Ceremonies - curved design element

What we're sharing on Facebook

  Memories of some of the 2015 Cherish weddings and the lovely couples I get to meet   Can you see anyone you know   

Or did you work on one of these weddings as a supplier  

wedding  ceremony celebrant   So this weekend Im flying to Madrid and spending the week in the town of Belmonte in Cuenca Spain   Its the 4th time I have gone to Spain to take part in an intensive week long English Conversation course for Spanish business people

Its full on but great fun and each time I go I make lifelong friends from all over the world 
We talk about anything and everything there are presentations and entertainment evenings  Points of grammar and phrasal verbs are explored and explained     The Spaniards are not allowed to speak one world of Spanish even amongst themselves for the whole week       Dios Mio     

Our hotel this time is an ancient palace dating back several centuries beautifully restored    I will be back refreshed in time for St Valentines Day  3   I would like to thank everyone who took the time to vote and leave such wonderful testimonials for Cherish Ceremonies in the Guides for Brides Customer Service Awards   Look what YOU made happen   

I am immensely grateful to each one of you 3

  I cant recall where I first saw this but it describes perfectly the role of the celebrant   When I meet couples to start the Cherish planning process one of the main things we talk about are the Wedding Vows   I have pages of examples of vows but I always encourage you to make the vows your own  after all they have to last you for a lifetime   

You can use the ones I have in my portfolio as a start point and change words around add in or take away until they are promises that you feel comfortable a making and b receiving

Here is an example of wedding vows  get your creative juices flowing  write your own vows   

With this ring I give you my promise
 that from this day forward
 I will give you all my love
 and you shall never walk alone
My arms will give you shelter 
and my heart will be your home
I have no greater gift to give
 Today I give you all that I am
 and all that I shall become   Well hello February you romantic month you  14 February St Valentines Day  is the most popular day of the year for proposals  I am longing to hear the proposal stories
  A huge cheery thank you to everyone for the wonderful reviews in the Guides for Brides Customer Service Awards 2016      

There are 42 five star reviews   Im so touched by your lovely words   

Results will be announced this month   Judging will be based on your words  but whatever the outcome  I already feel like a winner    Thank you so much for your valued support   A wonderful story in pictures of a wedding at Compton Verney Venue Hire  by the talented photographer Alex Bradbury    The ceremony was in the chapel  and Farrah was walked down the aisle by both her parents     It was a beautiful joyful ceremony for a lovely relaxed happy couple   Congratulations Pip and Stuart   what a lovely roomful of your family and friends who gathered for your wedding  X
  All is ready for tomorrows wedding ceremony at lovely Warwick House in Southam

The script is printed the readings are in their folders the amazing Unity Candle set is carefully packaged and the Handfasting cords are in their keepsake bag    

Tomorrow is a joyful day and Ive had such pleasure putting this together for Pip and Stuart  

We have a guitar and a hymn a bible reading and a blessing from their Pastor  something a registrar wouldnt have allowed CherishCeremonies shared 8Seasonss photo  What an amazing idea either at the birth of a new generation or for a wedding  Ive seen it done with each woman holding her wedding photograph but I love this version too    I just love heritage and tradition down through the generations 3 CherishCeremonies shared The Bridal Dressers photo  Can you imagine Grandma fainting when she received this  I admit I laughed
  Just one of the wonderful reviews left by a happy bride and groom   Zoe and Mel were such a delight and the Whately Hall Hotel in Banbury was full of joy and laughter on a lovely summer day

There are more reviews on the Guides for Brides website too where couples have been voting for me in the 2016 GfB Customer Service Awards   Im delighted I shall be working together with a vicar for a Vow Renewal and Blessing ceremony  at a Parish Church

With an independent celebrant its never eitheror unlike Humanist celebrants or registrars who are tied by doctrine or law respectively   A very happy Australia Day to all the wonderful Cherish Brides and Grooms I have had the great pleasure to meet
