I've written about the day many times before here on my blog, from my story of the day, to the moment where I realised 'today was the day' so this year I'm celebrating here with some of my favourite photos along with the verse my Dad read out during the ceremony...
SOMETHING TO REMEMBER ON YOUR
WEDDING DAY AND FOREVER
WE ARE NOT MEANT TO GO
THROUGH LIFE ALONE.
WE NEED A PARTNER WHO WILL
FOREVER REMAIN BY OUR SIDE –
SOMEONE TO LEAN ON AT TIMES,
REMEMBERING, AS WELL,
THAT WE WILL BE LEANED ON, TOO;
SOMEONE TO SHARE OUR JOY
AND HOLD US IN SORROW.
UNDERSTAND THAT THERE WILL BE DIFFICULT TIMES
AND DOUBT MAY CLOUD YOUR LIVES.
IT IS THEN THAT YOU MUST
TRUST EACH OTHER THE MOST
AND BELIEVE THAT LOVE WILL SUSTAIN YOU.
DO NOT GIVE UP EASILY;
FIGHT FOR WHAT IS MOST PRECIOUS –
HELP IT SURVIVE
BY NURTURING IT EVERY SINGLE DAY.
NEVER HESITATE TO SAY “I LOVE YOU”
OR TO BE THE FIRST ONE TO SAY “I’M SORRY.”
GIVE A LOT,
OVERLOOK EVEN MORE,
AND ALWAYS EXPECT AS MUCH IN RETURN.
NEVER LOOK BACK
OR LOSE YOURSELF,
BUT CELEBRATE THE SPECIAL PRIVILEGE
OF BEING A COUPLE.
NEVER LOSE SIGHT
OF WHAT BROUGHT YOU TOGETHER
IN THE FIRST PLACE;
YOUR SPECIAL LOVE FOR EACH OTHER.
CHERISH THAT ALWAYS
YOU HAVE OUR BEST WISHES
AS YOU TAKE THIS GIANT STEP FORWARD.
WE WISH YOU NOTHING BUT HAPPINESS
AS YOU ENTER THIS WONDERFUL NEW WORLD
And of course, our wedding day would not have been complete after the way Aaron had proposed if we had not done the Timewarp....
