Alexander and Cecilia had come from England to have a Renewal Ceremony in the presence of their Son and future daughter-in-law and friends. It all started when I received an email from Natalie saying "My partners parents will be visiting us here in Christchurch in December and would like to renew their vows after 30 wonderful years of marriage."
Natalie and I together organised the venue; the flowers; the cake and a ceremony.
It was a lovely day and then I received this message "Julie would just like to thank you again for your lovely words during our vow renewal on 31/12/2015. The service was beautiful as was the flowers, cake and lunch. We have had a particularly bad year during which my husband Sandy had a heart attack, so ending was extra special and has set us up for a fantastic future. Once again thank you and Natalie for making it such a memorable day!"
I got goosebumps when I read that message from Cecilia - so pleased I could make it special.
