The other night I went off to Dine Divine and met a photographer at the door.
Aryna the photographer and I went in and saw the couple who were having a lovely
celebration dinner with family and friends.
Aryna had told me that she had been with the family, 16 people
in total and taken photos during the afternoon.
So when we had everyones attention, I invited Helen and Richard Dear to face each other
after 25 years of marriage to renew their vows.
It was a short ceremony, and I shared this lovely story with everyone.
"Twenty-five years ago, on the day they bought there current home.
Richard turned to Helen while eating fish and chips with the three older children
down by the Heathcote River and said -"now that we have bought the house we might as well get married".
They had two further children after that."
We invited the bestman from 25 years ago to light a candle for those absent and those unable to join us.
The other thing that was very special and at the request of Richard and Helen - was to invite everyone with a partner to face each other, and take a few minutes to say, a few loving words to each other.
I was impressed that Helen wanted to do my marketing for me and took a few cards to share with her family. She was hoping to encourage one or two couples to use my services sometime soon!
