On a warm Spring day in Brisbane, Brenton and Jessica celebrated the mystery of love, in particular their’s, at the Broadway Chapel in Woolloongabba. The stand out from the ceremony was that look that you see in some couple’s eyes, it’s almost a spiritual moment when you see it.
The ceremony was an unplugged ceremony because Brenton and Jess wanted everyone to engage in the ceremony, not to document it!
Brenton just emailed me today, prompting me to write this blog post, and giving me some lovely feedback.
Brenton and Jess chose a few readings that spoke to their relationship and reflected their personalities
The Apache Wedding Prayer
Now you will feel no rain, for each of you will be shelter to the other. Now you will feel no cold, for each of you will be warmth to the other. Now there is no more loneliness, for each of you will be companion to the other. Now you are two bodies, but there is one life before you. Go now to your dwelling place, to enter into the days of your togetherness. And may your days be good and long upon the earth.
To be one with each other – George Eliot (1819-1880)
What greater thing is there for two human souls than to feel that they are joined together to strengthen each other in all labour, to minister to each other in all sorrow, to share with each other in all gladness, to be one with each other in the silent unspoken memories.
