The English Celebrant@Ridge Farm – Horsham, Surrey

06/06/2015 14:00 – 17:00 Ridge Farm Studios, Capel
Real Wedding conducted by the Singing Wedding Celebrant

Couple: S.Kerr and C. Black

Venue: Ridge Farm – Horsham, Surrey

Date: 6th June 2015

S.Kerr and C. Black are from London. The fun-loving and quirky bride and bride are passionate about reggae, each other and life. They desired a whimsical themed wedding ceremony. And it was important for them to exchange vows that were personal and from the heart. As well as actively get family and friends on-board. Live music was also a main feature. They’d obtained their official wedding documents, but wanted to hold a special celebratory party.

Proposal

4 years prior to their real wedding day, S.Kerr and C. Black had met for the first time in Sutton while working together on a project. It was a memorable meeting.  C. Black blushed the whole way through and S. Kerr looked cool, calm and collected. However, the actual engagement took place outside Morley’s Fried Chicken in Crystal Palace. And from that moment on they were like 2 peas in a pod. Nothing could stand in the way of their true life romance.

Location

It was an absolutely wonderful warm day at Ridge Farm – Horsham, Surrey. The sunny ornamental garden was full of excited wedding guests. And the sublime location of the altar amidst the greenery and between flowering oak trees was beautifully breathtaking. Ridge Farm formerly a music recording studio was the perfect setting to get married. It is a charming and characterful listed building; a picturesque venue.

Wedding consultation

The e-mail read: “Dear Clover, We’ve sorted out our legal formalities for our marriage. And want a personal touch to our wedding ceremony. We would like a fun surprise and one-of-a-kind love party. We were thinking about a Sister Act movie wedding theme. Are you able to carry out the ceremony and sing, too?” Yes of course! S. Kerr, C. Black and I agreed to Skype twice and met up on the day before the festivities to finalize the details.

Planning discussion

The planning of the S.Kerr and C. Black wedding script ran quite smoothly. During our 2 Skype meetings, they asked for my advice and suggestions about the ceremony set-up. S.Kerr and C. Black had a clear vision of what they wanted for their wedding day. Questions were fired back and forth and we exchanged ideas. Finally, they decided to include a love poem, some live music and a brief description about their special bond.

Ceremony

After I welcomed them, I spoke of their love for one another first meeting and hopes for their future. S.Kerr and C. Black’s guests had no idea that I would be present as a singing wedding celebrant. So, the look of amazement on everyone’s faces was priceless. And the couple looked extravagantly happy and upbeat as I suddenly sung “Good Life – Inner City”. Everyone stood up and started clapping along. After my musical interlude the ceremony continued.

The happy couple uttered the words “Yes, we do” and then some confusion occurred during the kiss. In Holland, it is customary to kiss after the exchanging of the rings. So, I thought we had done it, however it all turned out alright, when the steel band – Pan Nation begun to play the closing song of the ceremony. Read the testimonial…
