Dan and Jane

Sometimes weddings don’t go quite as planned and having a back up plan, being open to ideas as they unfold and just enjoying the moment are often an essential part of enjoying the magic of your wedding ceremony. Today it was my absolute pleasure to be the wedding celebrant for the lovely Dan and Jane who together have had quite a week – as we made a last minute call to move their wedding ceremony from the lovely but not so tranquil sunken garden to avoid Perth’s stormy winter weather into the shelter of the UWA club, the bride’s loss of voice up until this morning and their wee baby boy keeping them awake most nights this week with the flu.  The change of venue meant we missed a planned coin toss into the pond however inside the warmth of the UWA Club, the atmosphere was still amazingly charged as this committed bride and groom read their personal vows to each other. The presentation of the rings by Nana Bunny was so sweet as was the lovers knot tied by the couple’s mothers. In a twist I have never experienced the entire gathering even found themselves singing “twinkle little star” to get wee baby Will to smile for the camera during the signing – another unplanned but magic moment that will stay with this couple for a long time!

Dan and Jane your commitment to working on your partnership is amazing as is the wonderful warmth of your families. Thank you for letting me be part of your special day.
