It was wonderful that Sue and Steve have found true happinessess together.
Their path has not been a smooth or easy one to get to this day however, the day was here and they were so happy to be getting married.

Sue, remembering the first time we met you with your pink shirt and lovely smile as you bustle across the forecourt of the Dux Deluxe; you looked so confident it is a time I will never forget. Our first encounter. Truly a memory to hold onto and savour forever.

So my solemn vow to you is to always be there for you through the good times and the bad, to always love you for whom you are, to support you to the best of my abilities and to always love your with all my hear until the end of time.

So today with all my heart I take you to be my best friend, my faithful partner, and my one true love. I promise to encourage you, inspire you and to love you truly through good times and bad. I will forever be there to laugh with you, to lift you up when you are down and to love you unconditionally through all our adventures in life together, this is my
