To be recommended by a fellow wedding professional is great. To have the chance to be part of a truly special celebrant wedding celebration with a couple like Mal and George, well that’s pretty special too. And for it to be in Dungeness .. well that was the cherry on the cake.
Back in the spring of 2021, I was introduced to Mal and George. We had several, very long chats, mainly me and Mal (with George in the background) and I was quickly able to get an impression of this fabulous couple. Creative, clever, with a sharp sense of humour, I knew their wedding would be special.
And it was. Close family and friends in a very intimate setting. Working alongside my good friend, Karina from Simply Ceremonies UK https://celebrant-uk.co.uk/, I knew it was going to be fun. Karina kindly recommended me to this lovely couple and I am forever grateful. And she has an extremely in-depth knowledge of weddings and celebrant led wedding ceremonies … and how to put a buttonhole on properly.
We knew that Mal had arrived by the sound of the car. She was late. But who’s judging when she looked this fabulous.
Escorted by her son, the sun shone for this couple who are very obviously and genuinely smitten.
One of the many benefits of a celebrant wedding is that you can choose your own vows. They can be intensely personal, the words from a song or perhaps a quote from a well know TV series. And they are pronounced with love. And the odd tear.
“My Hello is end of your endings. Your laugh was the first step down the aisle. My hand will be yours to hold forever. My forever is as simple as your smile.”
“I said you were what was missing. You said instantly you knew. You are a question to be answered. And my answer is “I do”.”
The skill of a celebrant is to take your words and help you make them into something touching, endearing and which reflects you.
George truly loves his classic cars … especially American ones.
