Yes, this is my third wedding and it is a real privilege to be able to see them all again.
Such a great family and so relaxed. I get to look forward to the future and one more son to marry off – when the time is right. (Hopefully, the brother of the groom as well, so that would be two more weddings).
So on Saturday, I got to pronounce Shannon and Sam (Samantha) husband and wife.
They say “It doesn’t matter what happens to you, it’s how you handle it.”
I think Shannon’s Step Mum, Marcelle and I handled the challenge of the “reading” very well indeed.
It is nice to know the family were chilled about it as well.
Shannon accepts that Sam will always WANT to buy more horses or horse gear; and Sam accepts that Shannon will always NEED to buy more motorbikes, jet skis or cars.
Interesting that for Sam it is a WANT and SHANNON a NEED – not sure they realize that is what they chose.
Congratulations Mr and Mrs Venis – I know you will be very happy with your life and your super cute daughter Millie. Millie was pulled out on a cart by her cousin (yes, it must of been a cousin, super cute in his suit – Riley). Millie smiled the whole time – check out the photos of this super cute baby.
