We first met Karyl when she travelled here from the U.S. with a group of friends to join us for a Walk with Wisewomen two years ago.
This time she had returned with her partner and requested we Handfast them. January has had frequent stormy weather, gale force winds and heavy hail showers accompanied by icy temperatures which resulted in Karyl requesting we conduct her ceremony within Cassandra’s wise woman cottage.
This is the 2nd occasion a Handfasting has occurred within the cottage, the first one occurred many years ago when a couple from Denmark unexpectedly called on Cassandra requesting a ceremony. She asked them to return in an hour so that she could prepare for the event.
As this ceremony was booked in advance. John Isaac our wonderful friend and photographer captured beautiful images of the occasion. The cottage is small so it was fortunate the couple had only the presence of two good friends to support them.
