A fun Shropshire humanist garden wedding ceremony

When a German marries a South African and they put a massive tipi in their front garden it sure promises to be a fun Shropshire humanist garden ceremony!

For this couple’s pre-shoot we went on a beautiful mini hike around our gorgeous little hills and it was so much fun! They told me all about the things they had planned for their special day. I couldn’t wait for their humanist garden wedding ceremony!

There was so much excitement in the air and by the time their lovely friends & family arrived I already felt like I had known them forever. They’d told me about their celebrant Sophie. Honestly – I wasn’t prepared for the bundle of fun that greeted me with open arms and a big smile on her face. I instantly felt like I’d met a friend for life!

Sophie had prepared a beautiful & very personal ceremony for them which was full of joy, laughter & fun and got everybody involved. We kicked off proceedings with a fun game of Mr & Mrs followed by some speeches from one of their friends & Russ & Sue’s brothers. After mixing some sand from their favourite beach (I’m guessing this could well have been one on Anglesey?) we kissed, toasted and then threw some paper ribbon onto an umbrella and it was magical!! Absolutely loved this idea that Sue’s nieces brought to the party! Definitely keeping my fingers crossed that I’ll be seeing this again at a humanist garden ceremony hopefully in the not too distant future!

After some delicious South African food from¬†Big 5 Catering, we snuck off for some quick portraits in the neighbour’s trees before enjoying the treats from the ice cream van. And then it was time for some serious dancing!! Loved watching Russ & Sue perform their little Foxtrott!
