For Phil (whose Father is a celebrant) and Emilie, a big wedding, with lots of people, was not going to work. I was honoured to deliver the wedding they wanted.
Witnesses: Lucy and Liam
Ring bearers: Leo and Molly
Extra attendee: Edith the dog
Absent: Jacob who we tried to skype in Australia
Celebrant: Julie Lassen
It was a very special wedding and the vows and ring exchange very sincere and meaningful. Having been together nine years there was so much that wasn't said but was definitely exchanged in this little ceremony.
They said in their initial email to me, for them it was more about being married rather than getting married. I get that!
They didn't want fuss and there was none. The witnesses and ring bearers (plus Lucy on the camera) did what was expected and the ceremony conducted for this blended family. With it being so cold, I for one was grateful they had a brief ceremony.
Wishing you Phil and Emilie, a continued life together as husband and wife.
Thanks for having me as your Celebrant.
