Humanist Wedding, Johnson’s Blue Geranium and Brooke’s Sister

22 Jun

1   I conducted a beautiful Humanist Wedding Ceremony this afternoon. I do love these weddings – they are so individual, special and unique to the couple involved. Enjoy some of it with me.

2   The Johnson’s Blue Geranium is very beautiful and is buzzing with bees.

3   Yesterday I discovered a new blog Brooke’s Voice. It is one of the most beautiful I have read and I wanted to tell you a bit about it so that you can, please, visit it and be moved as I was by the love for her sister and the talent of a young writer who is still at school. Gosh, how I would love to be her English teacher to nurture this talent. What a way with words this young woman has, painting pictures with her lyrical sentences.

      It did but we dodged the showers! I was getting dripped on from the tree but it was an altogether joyful affair! 🙂

      Thank you! I love how, after the Ceremony, my couples are happy for me to take photos, as they are the unexpected ones, informal and often poignant. 🙂

    when you say you “conducted” the service…are you a minister…of some sort??? Hope that doesn’t sound bad… had wondered another time…

      Hello – no, I’m not a Minister, almost the opposite in fact as I am a Humanist celebrant and conduct non-religious weddings for people. I also do baby namings and both ceremonies are fabulous! 🙂

      So glad you went to look at Brooke’s Voice. I was so moved by the blog and its premise and then so impressed by the quality of the writing.

      The wedding was a delight! 🙂
