A Ceremony in a Devon Country Garden
Have you have dreamed of saying your vows surrounded by nature in beautiful surrounds? If so, this is the perfect way to go about it. Having your ceremony in a garden in Devon is very popular – for many great reasons. By having a celebrant-led wedding, you are not restricted at all to where and what time of day your ceremony is.
You can have the flexibility to source independent suppliers or, some country houses and gardens offer their own in-house catering. From luxurious and grand to intimate and personal, there are so many choices when it comes to the right Devon country house as the venue for your wedding. It also means you’ll have lots of control over your special day.
A Ceremony in the Sand?
Yes! As a celebrant, I can conduct your wedding ceremony on your favourite beach!
A dream come true to those that believed that this could only happen abroad.
Yes, there are licensed venues that look on to the serene setting – but if you want to feel the warm sand between your toes or the waves brushing your ankles as you say “I do” then it’s absolutely possible. You simply get the legal paperwork completed at a 20 minute appointment at the registry office (costs around £60). Then you can have your actual ceremony with a celebrant, such as myself, on a Devon beach.
Have your ceremony in a Devon barn
Did you know that barn weddings have become more and more popular? This is mainly because they often offer the ultimate flexibility of a DIY celebration! Again, this means being able to have your own choice of suppliers. Getting married in a barn also often means a relaxed, laid-back a stress-free day – it’s no surprise that it is so popular
