O Happy Days

We started Catie and Simon’s very special ceremony down at Subiaco Common this Autumn April morning with an amazing quote from Herman Hess in his book ‘Steppin Wolf’ that finished with the words..”one is ready to see life’s meaning just in those rare experiences, acts, thoughts and works that shine out above the chaos of such a life”! This ceremony ended up just one of those rare experiences and acts that shone out so brightly for me – from the couple’s gorgeous descriptions of each other, to the South African Gospel choir signing “O Happy Days!”, to a quick exit by bride and groom on their pushbikes through to a wonderfully warm and friendly family. It was one very happy day!
