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

Organising weddings on a Greek island for my dear country men and women, the great British Joe Public – the stories I have are about to be told.

They range from tearful, fabulous, tragic, hilarious, dreadful, joyful and chaotic to stories of utter toe curling embarrassment. Believe me.



Previously no-one had ever stuck the job for more that one summer. Perhaps that’s why it was easier to simply call the person in that role – “weddings” than try to remember their name, hence aka “weddings’.

Was I mad?

Most probably and certainly I became even more so. Remarkably, I made it through eight summers and more than 200 weddings before they brought in the wedding white straight jacket.

Without these great memories and experiences, meeting such brilliant folk in that time, I would not be where I am today.

I raise my glass and toast the brides and grooms of Corfu!
