We can all agree there’s something especially magical about the Summer Solstice, a time of year when days are longest and the sun is brightest, a day with a time honoured history rife with pagan celebrations and all things Stonehenge. When summer festivals kick off, gardens and fields are blooming, and weddings are in full swing.

The magic and beauty of warm days and sultry evenings make this the perfect time for weddings, and no wonder …  

There’s lots of myth and mysticism around the Solstice.  The full moon in June (which magically coincides with the Solstice this year) is seen by some as the mead, or honey moon, and by others as the strawberry, or rose moon - you get the gist?  Romance is everywhere!

Thought of throwing a solstice wedding in 2016? A perfect moment to start a fresh life together and an auspicious time for a natural green wedding.  You know the time has come and you’ve been planning to pop the question, you’ve got the ring (or maybe not, you’d like to choose an ethical engagement ring together later) and you’re fit to burst with anticipation!  But wait, you just can’t fix on an appropriate time or place …
