I love writing your marriage ceremony. It has to reflect you and be meaningful, so that your guests identify with whom I am talking about when I deliver your Marriage Ceremony, indeed any “Life Celebration” ceremony, I have the privilege of sharing, in my capacity.
The Marriage ceremony I write for you may tell of how you first met, it may talk about what you enjoy doing together, it may talk about the Proposal and so forth.
I recently conducted the marriage ceremony for a beautiful couple, so much in love and excited about sharing their life together and growing old together.
The groom mentioned that he thought his bride was a “good sort”, right from the start, when they first met, however in his vows he went on to wisely say, “it wasn’t just about looks” but along the lines of how they get on so well together, understand one another, love each other and look forward to spending their lives together and growing old together.
The bride’s vows were equally outstanding and committing, emphasising their bond of love, respect and esteem for one another and how she was so happy that she found him and looked forward to many fulfilling years together.
There was silence in the room of over 100 guests as they heard these binding words, tears that displayed emotion about love realised and reciprocated. It was actually the spellbound eye to eye delivery of Matt and Katherine’s vows that was the clincher and formally sealed their love and commitment.
Well I am getting ahead of myself here as I also wanted to tell you about the Proposal, which was part of their unique love story. Matt chose to ask Katherine to marry him at a Sacred Shinto Shrine, the “Floating Torii” on the Island of Itsukushima in Japan. This most revered and celebrated site was chosen by Matt, to emphasise the specialness of their relationship, as well as ensuring that it would become a special milestone in their life journey together, to be always remembered and cherished.
Well I won’t go on and on as each couple have their own unique love story, which is the best. However, I want to say that my receiving a beautiful testimonial from Katherine and Matt about my service to them was a great delight and encouragement to me.
I quote “you were a pleasure to work with and met our expectations of a short yet beautiful ceremony.
You provided us with plenty of material and love how you incorporated our engagement story into the ceremony.
Thank you, Jenny, for making our day truly special.”
Katherine Barbagallo and Matt Towell
