As I say to every couple I meet, the way I work isn’t for everyone, because it asks a lot from you. It’s only after your wedding that you realise why it’s the best way to create the perfect ceremony, as Sarah and Rob also told me in the lovely card they sent me.
The thought of writing our ceremony sounded great, until we really thought about it: then it became terrifying! Where to start, what to include, how it would come across, and also the work involved in doing it. We nearly both gave up on the idea. I cannot tell you enough how glad we are that we went ahead and did it.
From the homework, we had a wonderful evening where I saw I side of Rob I very rarely see (but know is hidden somewhere). It was such a moving thing to discuss – our story, and why we love each other. We laughed and we cried, and I will never forget that evening.
The writing of the ceremony was a labour of love and we laughed a lot doing that too. We cannot thank you enough for giving us the ideas, and the confidence to write it. It made the ceremony a lot more enjoyable for our guests too, as we realised from the conversations we had with them throughout the day.
Rob’s uncle, who is a lifelong bachelor gave us the thumbs up, and said several times that if he were ever to get married, this is the kind of ceremony he would want: humorous and personal. We just wish we could do it all again now, it went so fast!
Thank you again, from the bottom of our hearts, you made our day!
Love, Sarah & Rob
