I always sort my weddings the next day. This ensures that the papers get to Births, Deaths and Marriages for processing and registering the wedding within a few days. A part of that is ensuring if a couple request a Marriage Certificate it is processed and back to them in a timely manner.
So who did I marry? This was a simple and beautiful ceremony with a gathering of friends as Rebecca and Yihui with tears in their eyes made personal and very moving vows to each other.
After the wedding everyone gathered, congratulated the couple, and I encouraged them to have photos taken before they headed off to have a meal together.
They are such a lovely couple who thanked me repeatedly. It was indeed my honour to be with them.
I feel so privileged to be able to marry couples who despite challenges and diversity decide they want to be together.
