rhona and calum’s wedding at achmelvich beach

When we started our search for a celebrant we were delighted to hear that Monika, who has such a close connection to our chosen ceremony location, was willing to marry us. From our first meeting we knew that Monika was the one we wanted to conduct our ceremony. She has a fantastic, personable manner and made every step of the way effortless and enjoyable. The guidance, support and advice we received from her was invaluable. Thank you Monika for making our wedding day so special and one we will never forget.

Rhona & Calum were the first couple I had the honour to marry, on my local beach, no less, and it could not have been two lovelier people to co-create the wedding ceremony with! After getting engaged in 2019 at the little beach in Achmelvich, a beach wedding with all their family and friends had been their dream, and I’m so glad it finally came true in May 2021. In the 15 months before the big day we had times of intense chat and bouncing back and forth ideas, and quiet periods of mulling things over and simply trusting each other that things would come together (and rules would allow things to happen as planned).  
It was a smaller event than originally planned, but truly special! The sun had made the perfect appearance in early afternoon, just in time for  the wedding processional  to head down the white sandy beach, accompanied by piper Gilly Bee. The groom and wedding party were waiting at the beautiful wooden arch Rhona’s dad had built, and what followed was a ceremony that was caring, fun and relaxed, just like the couple at the centre of it. It included readings by both the bride’s and groom’s mother, Rhona and Calum’s love story and vows to each other, rings and a handfasting and quaich . There were lots of  smiles, some laughter (especially at Benji the dog digging under the chairs and then barking at the piper), and a few tears.  You can see that perfect little personal space created for family & friends, which felt really special and intimate, and yet there were quite a few people around the beach and up the hill who all felt so privileged to witness such a happy occasion from a distance. 
That very spot on Achmelvich Beach will always have a special place in my heart! Rhona & Calum, thanks for making me part of your wedding day!
