Phil & Lara's Wedding Story
Making your day special often brings a more relaxed feel to the day. My couple decided from an early point that they wanted the ceremony to be different so by working with them as Celebrant I created a personalised ceremony comprising of the standard civil ceremony with some added extra. To be aware this wasn't a legally binding ceremony, that was left to the first day of their honeymoon, but to them and their guests it was. It also allowed them the opportunity to involve their children more and have the freedom to allow interaction from their guests, with the occasional well timed heckle.
After the ceremony was finished I reverted in to my Toastmaster role and helped keep the rest of the celebrations on time, allowing for the relaxed theme to continue.
Speeches after the photo's and before the wedding breakfast (well Hog Roast), Ice-cream van for desert which led to a competition on who could get the biggest cone. Cake, Dance and party to a rather excellent band finished the night off.
All in all one of the most enjoyable work days ever.
