Sometimes the things I remember most about weddings are the little things that nobody else hears or sees.
I’ve written before about how some of the most emotional moments in a ceremony aren’t planned, or rehearsed – like when the bride arrives and you watch the groom’s face as he sees her for the first time in her wedding dress. That’s always a special moment that gives me a big smile.
At Adrian and Leonie’s wedding at Freshwater, four words said to me stick in my mind. Getting Adrian and his groomsmen into position, I said to Adrian, “OK, are you ready?” and his reply was – “I’ve always been ready”. Nobody else heard that, but it’s what I remember most – a throwaway sentence said with a huge smile that really summed up the love he has for Leonie.
It was a ceremony full of love and laughter, with the backdrop of the beach and the Pacific Ocean. Congratulations Adrian and Leonie!
Adrian and Leonie were married at McKillop Park in Freshwater.
