Humanist Commitment Ceremony by Mark Archibald Humanist Celebrant

Aurore & Jonas Abbaye de Caunes-Minervois

Congratulations to two of THE greatest people on making their personal commitment to each other in the Abbaye de Caunes-Minervois in sunny France.

Here are some favourites from the beautiful commitment ceremony.

To play a part in the joining together of two great friends is a privilege and an honour. We travelled out to gorgeous Caunes-Minervois near Carcasonne where my old pal Jonas & my newish(!) pal Aurore were married in a civil ceremony in the town hall.

The day before was spent helping put the completely bespoke ceremony space at the Abbaye together and it was beyond beautiful.

Then it was a wander through the old town to the Abbaye where I conducted a very intimate, personal Humanist Commitment ceremony for them outside in the 35 degree heat…hence no tie for me in the photographs!!!

It was a day full of love, emotion, fine dining, dancing, music, searing sunshine and laughter. I will never forget it.

Love, peace, happiness my friends.
