tina and patrick’s clachtoll elopement – two lovebirds, two kids, two mothers & two dogs

As soon as we got in touch with Monika to begin plans on our wedding she made us feel totally relaxed and at ease, which is exactly the feel we wanted for our very intimate beach wedding. She was always quick to respond to any of our queries and also help us with ideas to include on the day.
The wedding itself was conducted beautifully with a poem that Monika had chosen which suited our dogs perfectly, it felt like it could’ve been written about them!
I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Monika as a celebrant. Thank you for making our day so great!

When Tina & Patrick first got in touch with their ideas of a beach wedding at Clachtoll Beach I knew this would be one truly up my street (or sandy path) – a couple, their two kids, two mothers & two dogs! Like many couples I meet, they had fond memories of their wedding destination from previous stays and couldn’t imagine a better place for their very special occasion. And a special wedding day it was, on a sunny afternoon in May…
After meeting at the carpark – kids, dogs, photographer and various bits of equipment we all meandered down to the beach to find the spot that seemed right for the ceremony. A wedding party on a beach always creates curiosity, and spreads cheer – Tina and her daughter, beautiful in white, Patrick & Hamish in their kilts, bouncy dogs – love and happiness in abundance.
With everybody settled in our ceremony spot, with a backdrop of blue sea and white sand, what better way to start than with a poem about dogs on a beach, establishing the tone of the ceremony as fun and relaxed. What followed were heartfelt promises to each other, a sand ceremony that delighted the youngest member of the wedding party in particular, a lovely poem about family read by the couple’s son, rings, and a lovely impromptu contribution by Patrick’s mum. With the dogs happily frolicking in the background we signed the marriage schedule in a sheltered corner of the beach, propped up against ancient rocks and then celebrated with flower confetti.
A wonderful day for a wonderful couple & a wonderful family! Thanks for letting me be part of this joyful event.
