Don’t Panic! It’s only your wedding day. And that wasn’t the only Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy advice that Colin and Sakura took inspiration from!
It’s so important to make your wedding fun and relevant. Colin and Sakura are big fans of the Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, so we made sure it was part of the ceremony (just without the dressing gowns!).
They picked an extract (here’s some of it) which had a lot of meaning for them, which was read out by two special people:
“Arthur hadn’t realised that life speaks with a voice to you, a voice that brings you answers to the questions you continually ask of it, had never consciously detected it or recognized its tones till it now said something it had never said to him before, which was – Yes.”
So with their wedding rings – they said “Yes” – a word engraved on their rings too. How perfect is that?
Lots of tears of joy at this ceremony, especially at the awesome vows Colin and Sakura had written for each other. We kept them secret until the day, so they were new to everyone. Every time I looked around, I could see the tissues were out! A sure sign that everything was spot-on.
And as an added bonus – I got to ride my own golf buggy to the wedding venue. Too much fun!
Colin and Sakura were married at Gibraltar Hotel, Bowral
