My first ever email with Brian and Tara gave me a glimpse of their wonderful sense of humour and I knew to expect a wedding ceremony that was going to be personalised by them from top to bottom. And I was not wrong.
They wanted a very natural feeling, Humanist ceremony but above all they wanted it to be relaxed and to reflect their sense of humour, which it certainly did. This is one of my number one aims, that a ceremony reflects their personalities and ideals of the couple in question.
They had two fantastic readings; a hilariously funny Pam Ayres reading (He never leaves the Seat up) and one by a young female cousin, read in Spanish, (because she’s learning it at school and the ceremony took place in Spain) which was brilliantly presented. The guests may not have understood her words but they sure did understand her sentiment. They had a wonderful hand-fasting too, which was very emotional and I loved watching them, staring into each other’s eyes as I said the hand blessing.
Then there were their vows. OMG: They blew me away. Everything about them. The content, the design, the delivery. Funny and poignant. Profound yet light-hearted. Their real lives represented through their vows. They said their vows in an alternate delivery style, which I think is so effective and is becoming a really popular way for couples to say their vows together.
Anyway, I have done way too much talking about this. Through her photos, the amazing Anna Gazda has told a far better story than I have. So I’ll leave off here and let Anna’s awesomeness continue…
Mad love to the following;
