Today as the 49ners spinnakers filled the horizon down at Coogee Beach I had the honour of being Raul and Fernanda’s marriage celebrant. This delightful Chilean couple filled the day with their love.

The bride surprised her groom with a beach filled with hearts and he surprised her with a serenade composed especially for the day.

We stood in the middle of two large hearts marked out on the beach while the Maid of Honour read a Poem by Chilean Poet Pablo Neruda in Spanish that finished with the beautiful words and because of love, you will, I will, we will, come to be (y por amor sere, sera, seremos).

A very sweet and magical ceremony that finished with a triumphant splash as the Groom carried his Bride right down into the water and they took the plunge!
