I work with a growing number of couples wanting unique ceremonies that offer a deeply personal celebration filled with themes & heady with symbolism. Here’s a great example: I had the absolute pleasure of conducting a vow renewal ceremony for Craig & Claudine. The first thing to be discussed on their to do list was how to weave their ceremony around the symbol of a ship's anchor!

The anchor is a symbol of stability & loyalty. As a happily married couple they felt that the anchor embodied the core of their 10 year marriage. What a perfect symbol of their love.

I had the wonderful opportunity to work with the beautiful TV personality and all round gorgeous starlet Ferne McCann . Ferne is at the cutting edge with her ceremonial choice which was to bless her unborn child & to affirm the choice to cross the threshold into motherhood.

I certainly have noticed a sudden upward trend for this ceremony request. Ferne & I met in September to conduct her unique ceremony. Around this time I was approached by numerous individuals asking if an unborn baby blessing could be provided for an expectant Mother to be.

As I’m already a big believer that we should celebrate and honour the cycles of our everyday life, I’m thrilled that new Mum's are embracing their pregnancy. Choosing to take time out of their busy lives to stand in sacred space, affirming and positively intending a warm welcoming to their precious child that they are yet to meet.

Jumping the broom is back with gusto! I am yet to hold one wedding where the couple haven’t chosen bringing back this traditional ritual act.

In case you aren't aware what jumping the broom has to do with a wedding, it symbolises the transition into a new stage of life. At the end of the wedding ceremony the couple hold hands and jump over a broom to signify leaping into a new life together leaving their old lives behind!

In times past, this was the ritual act that symbolised marriage. Aside from this being a gorgeous way to weave a once traditional aspect into one's ceremony, it’s also a fabulous way to involve all your guests - with the chanting of ‘jump the broom' ‘jump the broom’ before you make the leap.

It’s a fantastic photo opportunity for sure!
