I get to meet so many amazing people at weddings. From couples and their friends and family, through to key staff who play such important roles at the venue. But one of the most important roles of any wedding day is trusted to the person who conducts the ceremony.  Mary Richards is an independent Celebrant who I had the absolute pleasure to work alongside at this amazing Heskin Hall wedding. Mary created a unique bespoke ceremony that reflected this couples personalities, hopes, dreams, and their connection. Jane and Ian’s ceremony was totally unique because it was filled with personal, meaningful moments that they, and their guests, will remember for a long time. 

A Unique Ceremony 

As we were lucky with the weather, this ceremony took place in the gardens of Heskin Hall. The ceremony began, much like any other, with the entrance of the bridal party. Once everyone was seated Mary gave an introduction and then Jane and her Sisters lit candles in memory of their Mum. This was then followed by the telling of Jane and Ian’s love story. This particular love story was truly beautiful because it weaved together all their important moments.  All the adventures and funny quirks this couple had shared over the years were included. The couple and their guests journeyed together through this fantastic story which brought both laughter and emotion to all.

 After the love story, the couple exchanged rings and vows, which they wrote themselves. Mary then led Jane and Ian, together with Daughter, Son and GrandDaughter through a Sand Blending Ceremony. The Sand Blending ceremony is full of symbolism. Each family member was given a coloured sand from an individual vessel and they then combined the grains into one larger vessel. This act represented the joining together of everyone, in the creation of a new union and family. The joined vessel symbolises the marriage of both partners’, their children and their hopes, dreams and values. 

The Legal Ceremony

Although this ceremony was beautiful and unique, the couple still had to do “the legal bit”. This was necessary for their marriage is recognised by UK law. So, following a short break (and a few photos), the couple had a second, short, ceremony. During this ceremony the couple entered the room together. Then, under the observation of the registrars, witnesses and guests, the couple recited the legal wording and were declared married. Following this ceremony, everyone ventured outside into the gardens for the confetti throw and drinks before being seated for their rustic afternoon tea.

This wedding was both beautiful and unique and one to be remembered by all who attended. I wish Jane and Ian lots more happiness, love and laughter as they continue their love story, happy ever after.
