Monica & Billy...Married!!

Early one Saturday morning soon after Christmas, Monica called me with some very very exciting news..... Billy had popped the question.  As you could imagine, I was chuffed and over the moon for them both.  I had known Mon as friend for more than 15 years.  There was a lot of excited chat about the wedding plans.    Mon then asked if I would be their celebrant.  WOW.... I was tickled pink, what an honour!!!

Mon and Billy wished for a casual, lighthearted ceremony that reflected who they are and what family and friends mean to them. 

Guests welcome Mon.

There were lots of chuckles from the guests during the ceremony.

Billy promised to let Mon sleep in on the weekends and cook her meals.  Mon promised to always have a beer in the fridge and laugh at his jokes!!

They share many interests including fishing, spending weekends at the bach and boating in the sounds.

It is such an incredible honour being asked to marry a friend.

The One...

    When the one whose hand you’re holding

    Is the one, who holds your heart,

    When the one whose eyes you gaze into

    Gives your hope and dreams their start,

    When the one you think of first and last

    Is the one, who holds you tight,

    And the things you plan together

    Make the whole world seem just right,

When the one whom you believe in

Puts their faith and trust in you,

You’ve found the one and only love

You’ll share your whole life through.

I am soo happy for you both.  I know your lives will be filled with love, laughter, family and friends.  J xx
