One of my absolutely favourite parts of being a civil marriage celebrant is hearing a couple’s story and then helping them translate the story of their journey into a personal and individually crafted ceremony. Gathered in the shade by the Swan River at Mulberry on Swan this summer afternoon, we celebrated young love. A gorgeous couple, whose story started with a groom so taken by the young lady who served him his coffee, with barely a hello, that he applied for a job at the same place and spent the next 8 months wooing her. Their ceremony included a brave young ring bearer who brought the rings safely down two sets of stairs and across the lawn (at the tender age of 3!), a wishing tree and lots of other very pretty touches.
