Alice & Jo’s Same Sex Wedding, Longstowe Hall

25 June 2016

Alice and Jo’s same sex Wedding Ceremony took place at the stunning Longstowe Hall in Cambridgeshire.  Set in beautiful gardens, Alice and Joanne’s Wedding Ceremony was held on the Gazebo Island on the lake.

Having contacted White Rose Ceremonies in September last year, we met with Alice and Joanne several times to create a ceremony that reflected who they really are.  Their wedding rehearsal was held at a location close to Longstowe Hall.  We had a wonderful time with them and their families at the rehearsal, spending time walking through the ceremony so that they were completely comfortable with it.

The sun shone on their Wedding Day, guests were seated and the bridal parties arrived.  Joanne walked with her father and bridesmaids first.  Alice followed with her bridesmaids, escorted by her mother until she reached her father’s wheelchair.  He was determined to walk his daughter to meet Joanne and to everybody’s delight, he did this.  A very happy and touching moment that left us all with tears in our eyes.

Conor’s Naming Ceremony at Quy Mill Hotel

12 June 2016

Conor’s Naming Ceremony at Quy Mill Hotel & Spa, Cambridge, was a truly lovely ceremony that included family and friends.  Conor’s parents, Yvette and Paul, were married in the same venue six years earlier.  They thought it a wonderful place to celebrate the arrival of their baby son and to welcome him into their family and circle of friends.

The Garden Room at the Quy Mill Hotel was the perfect venue for their guests.  After all the rain in the week leading up to Conor’s Naming Ceremony, the sun came out to shine for him.

But what really shone through was the love everybody had for Conor and the love and support for his parents.

Conor is such a dear little boy and he enjoyed cuddles with lots of guests.  We were able to sneak a few cuddles with him too!

With promises made by Conor’s parents, his Godparents and Grandparents, a reading by a much-loved family friend and a hissing balloon that had everybody in fits of laughter, it was a perfectly happy day for all.

Conor’s parents provided us with a lovely testimonial that explains the process we used to ensure that Conor’s Naming Ceremony was exactly the ceremony that they wanted:
