It was one of the loveliest weddings I have ever been too. Loads of people, young and old (proportionately more young), squeezed into what I'd imagine is a hall meant for 250 at most. ;) Celebration was in the air and the crowd cheered as soon as the bride walked through the sliding door. T'was definately a first for me! ;)
The ceremony was beautiful and meaningful with personal exhortations and blessings meant for the couple. All in all, lovely! I was moved to tears.. hehe.
What I've learnt:
1) Testimonies from the couple's marriage counsellors lend a personal touch to the proceedings.
2) Choice of speaker is VERY important. All speakers should end with blessings for the couple.
3) A smaller hall creates a cosier atmosphere.
4) The element of friendship in a marriage must be nurtured and not forgotten.
And a whole host of other poignant things.. hehe. Congrats D & B!
