I have been very under active with my blog, quite simply I’m delighted to say that I have been, and still am very busy with the wedding season. I have been very fortunate to have met with so many lovely couples who have secured me to perform their wedding ceremonies.

Things will be starting to slow down a little very soon and I will post about the weddings I have done along with more photographs…Watch this space

It’s so  nice to deal with so many happy people who are looking forward to their wedding day. I’ve met with a few couples in ‘Candlelight Floral Designs’  new store, which has a lovely ‘bridal room’ and a convenient coffee shop next door…a win win situation!

Wedding fever!

I’ve had a busy few days with meeting brides and grooms, brides and brides, and grooms and grooms…this year is going to be a busy one in Maryland. Happy days for me. I get to meet so many happy people…what more could I want…..I love my work!

Spring…is here…I think!

The sun is shining and thoughts turn to the lovely spring wedding season.

I’ve been taking calls for some brides and grooms whose chosen venue has closed leaving them without a place to marry…so sad and worrying for them. This causes huge problems, and has a knock on effect with other vendors….so an ill wind as they say…..and I’ve got a few more wedding dates slotted in. Ring me if you’re looking for an officiant in a hurry..I might be able to help you!

Transatlantic Wedding!

Transatlantic wedding!

This is the first time I’ve had this happen to me…!

Meeting up with the groom in the UK , then flying to the USA and meeting with the bride yesterday to discuss plans for their forthcoming wedding in May….So looking forward to this wedding at Stone Manor Country Club …  which is  a beautiful wedding venue!

I was very lucky to meet and talk with a lovely young engaged couple about their forthcoming wedding in September.    They were a joy to talk to and such happy people, they have ‘engaged’ me to perform their ceremony, I’m a very happy officiant!

What makes a beautiful Wedding Day?

A number of things …obviously the bride and groom, happy and smiling enjoying their day, but when a ceremony interrupted with an unexpected tear from the officiant, and many of the guests come forward offering tissues to save the day!
