Save the Corfu date

Hoped you’ve saved the date as the busy wedding and celebration season on Corfu, begins again soon. It could be a renewal of marriage vows, a wedding blessing or a symbolic wedding.

peacock croppedDear clients of mine who will be having a wedding blessing next year, have told me that the peacock is a very important yogic symbol as it is capable of turning poison into nutrition and represents transformation.

Strangely, as symbolism and meaning are so important to me, I have never particularly considered my own surname and it’s relevance to weddings and celebrations, which is my joyous work!

Of course, their insight into the peacock meaning got me going and I had to research further.

Apparently the symbolism of a peacock at a wedding ceremony can bring the following amazing qualities to your special day!:

Integrity, showing your true colors, nobility, holiness, guidance, protection, watchfulness, great vibrancy, “a walk of faith”, self-esteem booster, vision, refinement, spirituality and incorruptibility (a take on that ‘forsaking all others’ line from traditional wedding vows!) Phew!

I was delighted to also learn that in Hindu culture, the Peacock is associated with the deity Lakshmi, representing benevolence, patience, kindness, compassion and good luck.

Well, well, the power of a name and the symbolism of a stunning bird!

“No pressure Sally!” I thought to myself.

Hope that I can live up to it, certainly trying my best xx

It will be a good feeling to share a celebration on Corfu with Janet next year with happy couples at their wedding, their life commitment as civil partners, renewing their vows or naming their new baby. Life has so many reasons to celebrate, enjoy!

You know when you get that spare second in your life and remember to do something that you’ve been meaning to do for ages.

And you know when you get that really weird feeling if you have ever Googled yourself!?

Well I’ve just done both, right now.

I am happily chuffed to bits as “Corfu Celebrant” brings me up @ number 2 & 3, of only 3 so that makes me a bit unique.

Which is nice.
