From the Bride... To say that every girl dreams of her wedding day, from an age you could count on one hand, is not something that could be true of me. Every time I’d have the opportunity thrust upon me to think about it, I’d just feel overwhelmed. The only thing I could ever settle on, was that my dress had to be timeless. Other words I used to help me dream up my day were classic and fabulous! I felt the classic movie, Breakfast At Tiffany’s, screamed all three of those words, and with a fashion icon like Audrey Hepburn, the vision was born.
It was also very important to me that our day wasn’t one-sided, and that my to-be husband didn’t feel emasculated by osmosis. Therefore, I tried to keep our decorations simplistic.
While oh -so-central, my favourite part of our ceremony was not the vows, the rings, or the kiss (although all were special), but that we washed each other’s feet. In our faith, it is a representation of not only regarding the other as more important than yourself, but that because Jesus has served us in our greatest need, we can accept that wonderful gift and serve each other.
While I loved the glitzy elements of our décor, such as the chandelier and the silver teapots, the most meaningful was the ‘guestbook’. I adore the love story in the Disney/Pixar movie Up, and I painted the house, while people used their fingerprints to act as the balloons. It represented nicely the idea that everyone present lifted our relationship up.
Ultimately, my most beloved memory from the day was that I was finally, officially, joined for life with the man who is better than my dreams. From the beginning of our relationship, God's hand was clearly seen and we both knew we'd found our great love of this life.
