About Ceremonies By Abbie
Based in Sittingbourne, Kent I design and conduct relaxed, inclusive ceremonies to mark life events such as weddings, vow renewals, funerals, memorials and naming ceremonies. I’m here to make sure that each event I’m involved with is meaningful and memorable. From initial planning to selecting the perfect elements and concept, I'll work with you to create the perfect bespoke ceremony to tell your story.
I cannot promise you a life of sunshine;
I cannot promise riches, wealth or gold;
I cannot promise you an easy pathway
That leads away from change or growing old.
But I can promise all my heart's devotion;
A smile to chase away your tears of sorrow;
A love that's ever true and ever growing;
A hand to hold in yours through each tomorrow.
These I Can Promise -Mark Twain
We, unaccustomed to courage
exiles from delight
live coiled in shells of loneliness
until love leaves its high holy temple
and comes into our sight
to liberate us into life.
and in its train come ecstasies
old memories of pleasure
ancient histories of pain.
Yet if we are bold,
love strikes away the chains of fear
from our souls.
We are weaned from our timidity
In the flush of love's light
we dare be brave
And suddenly we see
that love costs all we are
and will ever be.
Yet it is only love
which sets us free.
Touched by an Angel - Maya Angelou
The day we met,
Frozen I held my breath
Right from the start
I knew that I'd found a home for my heart
Colors and promises
How to be brave?
How can I love when I'm afraid to fall
But watching you stand alone?
All of my doubt suddenly goes away somehow
One step closer
I have died everyday waiting for you
Darling don't be afraid I have loved you
For a thousand years
I'll love you for a thousand more
