I recently conducted the marriage ceremony for Ashleigh and Paul at a beautiful location on the South Coast.
They wanted their ceremony to be about them and their love for each other. They wanted to celebrate their commitment to each other in an intimate arena, surrounded by all that they loved and held dear……
this unpretentiously and simply comprised of special people in their lives, the outdoors, the things they love to do and experience together and of course each other……
To them it was all they really needed, right then and there, to complete their legal joining.
Their vows to each other were spoken with heartfelt genuineness, as they looked into each other’s eyes, which at times misted up with emotion. I had the front row seat, to speak, and I was totally moved.
There were no distractions, no flummery, no posing to quell their moment. It was an honest, straight forward … “Take me as I am.
What you see and know is who I am;
Take my heart; share my life and together we will face the future together. …
Come what may, I will be there for you and
I love you “just the way you are!” ……..
Regardless of whether your marriage ceremony is grand or intimate it deserves the solemnity and “flair”; the sincerity and warmth that I, as your celebrant, aim to deliver.
After all, the true essence of a marriage is the celebration of your love and commitment to each other and the promising to spend the rest of your lives together, as partners in life.
