This was an awesome wedding. It was extra special because it was a DOUBLE WEDDING!
Yes people, I married two couples on the same day. They acted as witnesses for each other. Both couples wanted a very simple ceremony that covered just the minimum legal wording. They shared their vows, with just their children present, had some family photos, then went off to dinner together.
A week later they revealed the news to their delighted families at a casual reception. I was blown away when I received feedback not only from the bride. but also from her Mum who wasn’t even there!
Here’s what Secret Bride 1 had to say about me:
“Don’t change a thing! You are an absolute gem. You provide a service that is priceless… marriage suited to the individual” Mr and Mrs G.
Here’s what her Mum said about me:
You married our kids on August 17th, I am sure you will remember them, just had to convey to you how much fun it has been first learning of their double elopement ourselves and then sharing the wonderful news with family & friends including the two great grandmothers who are both well into their 80’s who are as tickled by it as we are. While we know you do this to earn a crust we really like your ethos and that you ‘get it’ too. Consider us a couple of very proud & happy parents, cheers, P & G.”
