“May this knot of love remain tied forever. May it be loose enough to allow you the freedom to be yourselves as individuals but tight enough to keep you strong through life’s challenges.”

Here we are at the dreamy and romantic hand-tying element we wove into the wedding ceremony for Pete and Sarah in May 2021 at The Secret Garden near Doncaster.

Two hearts and two families were joined in this symbolic gesture as Sarah’s sister and Pete’s sister placed the cords over their siblings’ hands and gave them their blessing before the knot was tied.

As you can see there was an additional (and most welcome!) guest too! Chicken (by name and nature!) featured in all of the photo’s, sharing centre stage with our happy bride and groom!

Chicken even led our couple down the confetti aisle at the end of their ceremony much to everyone’s amusement and delight!

A Garden Micowedding to Remember

A beautiful, memorable, traditional yet modern micro-wedding with just 15 guests as per the restrictions at the time.

They DID IT !!!!! (and held their nerve after many stop/starts due to the uncertainty of the situation)

Tying the knot – Peter and Sarah are blessed by their sisters, Alice and Mary.
