Today on Facebook, I am being tagged, in a couple’s wedding photos, from this day last year.
Yes, one year ago today, I had the pleasure and absolute joy, of being the Celebrant who got to share with Bruce and Kevin their marriage.
I remember arriving at the lovely home in Merivale where the wedding was being held and different members of the family rushing up to introduce themselves and make me feel welcome. The wedding ceremony would be held in the garden with everyone gathered together. The tables were set ready for the reception lunch. Everything was just perfect.
This was the day that Bruce and Kevin after 36 (yes thirty-six years) together were married.
Read these comments that I have taken from Facebook today!
After being engaged for 36 years, Kevin and I married a year ago today. It was a most wonderful day.
— with David Barlow and 24 others.
"At the heart of the event was Julie Lassen who conducted the most perfect marriage. A marriage that didn't just legally unite 2 people, but also united family and friends. I'm writing this whilst walking Poppy and I'm filled with such happy memories."
I recognise the privilege I have in sharing these special moments in time with amazing people.
Happy First Anniversary to you Bruce and Kevin.
