the ceremony (ghost blessings)
wedded in the woods of tunbridge, vermont
october 10th, 2010
last autumn i made my way by bus from montreal to the ink black milky way night skies and endless winding forest roads of vermont to attend the wedding of a longtime friend and faraway kindred, tamera/verhext. for almost ten whole years her words have been a source of deep primal truths and witchen wisdom to me, wonder and laughter and solace, too. when tamera invited me to be there for such an important day, i knew i had to find a way to make it happen.
these photographs feel as lost in time to me as that day did, and still does. for one afternoon we were all transported back to a fairytale forest time of stone altars, nuptials in a delicate hand, whispered oaths and spirit blessings, chandelier crystal strewn tree branches, wild toad stools and elderflower liqueur, babbling brook laughter and fiddle music. i will always be lost for words and honoured to the bone to have been a part of it all somehow. with all my heart, thank you, tamera and sean. long and happy days to you both, forever and ever amen.
(please see and read more about it all here, from the beautiful bride herself.)
tamera and sean.
