Independent Commitment ceremony at Boringdon Hall, Plympton, Devon

photo copied from Boringdon Hall website

This  intimate commitment ceremony was organised very quickly by a couple in a  hurry not to waste any time now that they have found each other.  Their life experiences, and particularly the adversity they have met, made them want to "seize the day" or, as Harry said (in When Harry Met Sally)
" ...  because when you realize you want to spend the rest of your life with somebody, you want the rest of your life to start as soon as possible."

The Parker Room for intimate ceremonies at Boringdon Hall

Boringdon Hall has been converted to a country house hotel and spa and is staffed by warm and friendly people who facilitated this ceremony with tolerant good humour.
The Parker room is a lovely size for a small ceremony and was dressed simply and prettily by the staff.

 ....and in between, the intimate circle of family and close friends.....

fully surrounded by guests in this ceremony space

.....and a handfasting element (with laughter)...

tying the knot

.. this was a short, sweet ceremony all about declaring a commitment for all time.
