Cherish Ceremonies - curved design element

What we're sharing on Facebook


CherishCeremonies shared Motivo Photographys photo  A beautiful sneak peek of the loveliest wedding ceremony I had the pleasure of creating with and for Lloyd and Rebecca    The warmth and love of family and friends was evident and there were equal amounts of tears and laughter during their ceremony  from guests bride and groom  and almost from the celebrant too

The Oxford Welsh Male Voice Choir entertained guests as they arrived with some beautiful singing and the ceremony began with a Ring Blessing involving everyone present   Young Ioan as Ring Security did a superb job  

The bridesmaids looked fabulous and the groomsmen scrubbed up well too  

The ceremony included an extract from Les Miserables by Victor Hugo read by Rebeccas sister and at the Handfasting the grooms Mum Heather read the Blessing of the Hands with some lovely personalised and heartfelt wording at the end

The ceremony included some reflection about the power of the kiss  and the two proud mums were invited to kiss their son and daughter before they made their wedding vows and received a long stemmed rose from their children as a thank you for all their kisses over the years 

Our bride and groom wrote and read their own vows to one another  I dont think there was a dry eye in the room when they had finished

The biggest cheer went up as they left the ceremony and the party got started  

Thank you Mr and Mrs Evans for entrusting me with your ceremony 3

Photo from Motivo Photography   the first time I have worked with this lovely lady and hope to work with her again in the future   I love this  Shared from a guest 
photograph of Rebecca and Lloyds wedding ceremony   This is their symbolic handfasting moment with Lloyds mum reading a personalised version of the  Blessing of the Hands CherishCeremonies added 6 new photos  What a joyful wedding ceremony  tears and laughter in equal measure    Congratulations to lovely couple Lloyd and Rebecca    

Lloyd is Welsh and as the guests gathered we had wonderful choral singing from the Oxford Welsh Male Voice Choir
For  now  here is the traditional Cherish GroomSelfie  and a few preceremony photographs
  Another Cherish wedding ceremony script agreed   We love it  Youve captured it perfectly   

Im always nervous hoping my couple will like what Ive created for them    

I get to work with the loveliest people   Locations for my last 4 weddings of 2016    All within Oxfordshire or Warwickshire  How many can you name   This beautiful wedding for Sasha and Romain was in the South of France and it shows that you dont need a huge amount to create a lovely outdoor wedding    Seating  from hay bales to hired chairs or even blankets or rugs on the grass  The aisle was marked by 2 rows of gypsophila flowers but you could have pots of flowers lanterns shepherds crooks with ribbons fluttering in the breeze    Im not a fan of fake bay treessilk rose trees outdoors hire real ones instead nor candle lanterns fire hazard  Whatever you do keep it simple 

This ceremony area was created with nothing more than a length of sheer voile draped in the trees a pretty rug on the grass two pots of flowers and a chandelier hanging from the tree for effect    What could be simpler

 Most outdoor weddings will need a sound system  I have a state of the art professional system so your vows will be heard loud and clear  

PS  I advise always to have a Plan B for outdoor ceremonies in case of rain  whether that is a Marquee or handy barn nearby or even just umbrellas and wellies

Happy to discuss these ideas and more for your outdoor wedding   judycherishceremoniescouk will find me
  Where does the time go  Next week will be the second wedding anniversary for Adam and Shannon   I had the honour of being their celebrant at the oldest building in Warwickshire  the beautiful Lord Leycester Hospital which isnt a hospital but a home for retired servicemen  a bit like Chelsea Pensioners     

Tim and Shannon wrote their own beautiful vows to one another  and their guests flew in from all over the world to celebrate their simple but stylish wedding   They had a beautiful blessing after the ceremony in the chapel   

As well as the chapel there is a fabulous hall plus a reception room as well as stunning gardens   

I am the recommended celebrant at this very special venue 3

Lovely picure thanks to  Georgi Mabee Photography CherishCeremonies with Orlando Valentine  Happy Anniversary to Queen Elizabeth and Prince Philip 69 amazing years of marriage  

I love this picture  then and now  pic is from the BBC   Says it all
CherishCeremonies updated their cover photo  This lovely couple will soon be celebrating their 1st Wedding Anniversary   Farrah and Paul had a beautiful elegant wedding at Compton Verney in Warwickshire     Farrah was walked down the aisle in the beautiful chapel by both her parents and they had a simple sincere ceremony  they wrote their own vows and it was very special indeed      Afterwards guests gathered in the galleries surrounded by precious works of art for champagne and canaps before the celebrations and wedding breakfast   

If you would like your wedding at this lovely venue where you could say your vows in the chapel by the lake in the Adam Hall or in a marquee in the grounds  Compton Verney Venue Hire are the people to contact

'No I'm not a Humanist'. My ceremonies are about your beliefs, not mine. So, if you would like religious content, that's fine by me 🙂 | 3:15pm Thursday 08th December | Read »
