Back in February, a month ago I had the absolute pleasure of being Jennifer and Dion's marriage celebrant.
You always know when you have a Pemberton Wedding that it will be beautiful in every respect and this one was no exception.
And today I had my love tank fulled up with and email:
We just wanted to reach out to you to thank you for the lovely service you provided at our wedding. Even though it is starting to feel like a distant memory now, it will always be a happy and amazing day that we will never forget. You played such a big part in making sure we felt relaxed and happy during the most important part of the day, our ceremony. Many of our friends and family who attended commented on how lovely it was and especially our MC Shane who appreciated your caring manner and approach to the whole thing.
We know we were one of the lucky couples that had our wedding only weeks before the lock down and are deeply sympathetic to those that have had to postpone their plans. We hope that you and your family stay safe and we wish you all the best for the weeks and months ahead.
Jen and Dion
Thank you again Jennifer and Dion it was indeed my pleasure to share in your special day.
Stay safe and have a long and happy life together.
They say a "picture tells a story" and a series of pictures tells you much more. Let's see if you get the story.
I felt very honoured and blessed to spend time with this couple and get them married in my nice relaxed and happy style.
In February I received an email from Sara saying together with her fiance they were travelling to Christchurch in March to spend time with relatives. It would only be for 3 days and I was asked if I could marry them at some stage during that time.
They said a simple wedding in Hagley Park by the Largest Redwood Trees with just 10 people in a very informal way would be perfect. I knew I could deliver and we swung into action to make it happen.
When I was told to meet them at the large Eucalyptus tree - I was concerned as I had no idea where to find that. As it turns out I was told it was in the Botanic Gardens and that didn't help. We hatched a plan I would meet Alan and guests had the bridge. I was waiting on one side of the bridge and the others were on the other side of the bridge.
Everyone found the spot, we delivered the ceremony at the agreed location - at the large Eucalyptus tree and it was everything it was meant to be. Congratulations Mr and Mrs Gardner may you have a long and blessed life together as husband and wife.
I love being able to write a regular wedding blog.
