the beautiful day it had been the day before. Regardless of the weather, when there is a wedding
planned - the wedding will go on!
In Ashburton I met for the first time Jeff and Lesley, a lovely couple in their 70's. I was able to
relay to them my very first wedding, 14 years ago, was for an older couple. Lesley and Jeff were both widowed, so extra special, that they got together, and they are now married.
Together with witnesses, Val and George, we drove to Ashburton Domain. We headed to the
playground and parked and beside a very enormous rhododendron we performed a simple little
ceremony. Only one ring was gifted and they will live happy ever after.
We were told that the gold candle they lit was spiritual, and the best colour to have. We all agreed as you should not be disagreeable at a wedding on any occasion!
So that was how I spent my Tuesday afternoon.
Wishing Jeff and Lesley a long and happy life together as husband and wife.I had the pleasure of driving to Ashburton.
