Wedding, Anemones and Pear Tarte Tatin

03 Nov

1   I met with a lovely couple this morning who want me to be the Celebrant for their Humanist wedding ceremony next May. I do love my job! It such a happy and positive thing to do.

2   I love Anemones, such beautiful, vibrant colours. Only one in the bunch is fully open yet – the whole bowlful will be a treat indeed.



3   Pear Tarte Tatin, warm with ice-cream – comfort food for a wild wintery evening such as this, rain hammering against the windows, wind howling down the chimneys and the wood burner glowing!

    The images were striking, especially and anemone, which I thought was only a sea creature (duh). As for your officiating, that’s fantastic. I read Kahlil Gibran for a humanist ceremony – from “love,” of course… What an honor. Have a beautiful time! Amy

      Thank you. Every wedding ceremony I do is different and very special. The Kahlil Gibran is beautiful. The bit about parenting is lovely for Naming Ceremonies too. You are right – it is an honour. 🙂

    Celebrant to Pear Tarte Tatin, you seize to amaze me. You don’t happen to teach sky diving to idiots, just in case that should one day make it onto my bucket list?

    Pear Tarte Tatin … isn’t that the prettiest and I bet scrumptious…the Anemone would probably be one of my favorite flowers…but, have never grown any…will check these out…

    Thank you for the lovely anemone – we grew them on our smallholding when I was a child and I used to help pick and bunch them for sending to Covent Garden – hard work then but lovely nostalgic memories now.

    It must be lovely to be a part of people’s celebrations of love for each other in such a wonderful way. That is a beautiful blue flower and your description of the weather outside and your wood burner glowing with that delicious looking pear tarte tatin to comfort you inside… so cozy! 🙂
