So, a genuine question, not a rhetorical one....... I don't know about you, but my Facebook and Intsatgram feeds have been full of beautiful stories of romantic wedding proposals and love has certainly been in the air. As a wedding celebrant who is never happier than when talking about all things wedding ceremony, then this is a wonderful thing to see. This year however, I paused to reflect. I had an initial telephone interview with a couple who are getting married in Februar
#trendtraps. Wedding trends are all over in January. You can't pick up a bridal magazine, follow a wedding industry business Instagram account or a wedding twitter account without seeing them. The big movers and shakers in the industry are all over them. Wedding dresses, wedding venues, wedding decor, and on it goes. For instance, let’s take the Independent News Papers spin on this. The Independant reports 5 big wedding trends in 2019 Now, in principle there is a lot in ther
A mini 'blogette' Hello all. I often get asked "what is the difference between a celebrant wedding and a registrar led wedding?". In a nut shell it’s the personal service. As a celebrant I am committed to getting to know you as individuals long before your wedding day. If I am conducting your wedding ceremony, then I want to hear your story, to hear about what is important you as a couple, to reflect all of your hopes and aspirations for your married life together.

Breathtaking Yorkshire Scenery as a backdrop to your wedding day As my quest to bring you the very best wedding ceremony venues in Yorkshire continues, I found another true gem. The Kilnsey Park Estate. Now I always start my appraisal of a venue with ‘the feel’. This is important on so many levels, especially if you are planning to hold one of the most important days of your lives there. A warmer Yorkshire welcome you could not wish to have. When I arrived for our meeting hav
Nestled on the edge of the stunning North Yorkshire Moors National park you will find this beautiful, family owned Estate. I had the pleasure to exhibit at The Chapelgarth Estate open day on Saturday. From the moment I pulled up in the drizzle in my laden car, I was stuck by the person-centred approach and genuine wish to help. I was offered assistance parking, to be escorted with an umbrella as I unloaded and generally made to feel that nothing was too much trouble. Rewind.
Welcome new readers and welcome back to True to You's existing followers. Today I wanted to share something that runs thematically throughout my work as professional celebrant and as a nurse - the 'life cycle'. In 2016 I completed my post graduate certificate in Systemic Family Therapy at the University of Leeds. Of the many schools of thought within the systemic practice community, the 'life cycle' model (Carter and McGoldrick 1980), was one that really resonated for me as a
So, you are getting married and you are hoping to have a truly unique wedding that shares all that you and your loved one represent. Have you thought about designing and making your own wedding rings? I was talking to a bride to be who is getting married in June. She and her fiancé are heading up to Edinburgh to a wedding ring making workshop. http://www.makeweddingrings.co.uk/home-page http://www.selinacampbell.com I can not wait to see the fruits of their labour.
