Ah young love!

A cruise ship, a piano bar, the wedding march and a young couple very much in love makes for quite a wedding experience! When I started on this journey as a Marriage Celebrant  a few years ago I never imagined the places I would end up to help a couple tie the knot! Today marked a first as I walked down the gangway on board the Pacific Sun P&O Cruise Ship as she docked in Fremantle. Carly and Jesse stood under their arch in the Captain’s Piano Bar, surrounded by their family and friends, while their grandparents tied the ribboned knot around their wrists in an age old symbol of a family joining a young couple in an eternal union, champagne was circulated by the crew and the cake was cut to our cheers.  I was then escorted back down the gangway to wave the ship farewell as she sailed out of the dock. Congratulations Carly and Jesse as you set sail on your journey of life!
