Love - What a wedding is all about

Julia and Gregg  17 December 2012

This was a very special wedding for two main reasons.  Firstly it also involved a family ceremony for their two children, the youngest of which had almost thrown a very large spanner in the works by severely injuring a finger just a few weeks before the wedding was due to take place with most of Julia's family about to travel from new Zealand.  Secondly, there was to be equal tribute paid to the heritage of both the bride and groom.
They chose Boath House Hotel at Nairn for their venue which is a small intimate hotel which they adore and was suitable for the numbers able to attend.  Julia's family are friends with the New Zealand Maori author Witi Ihimaera who, as a surprise, adapted an extract from his book "the Rope of Man"  which fitted Julia's family story to a "T".  It was read by her mother.  As French martinis had played a large part in their first and subsequent meetings it will be no surprise to learn that they included a Quaich ceremony  as well.

The family ceremony part was enjoyed by both sets of grandparents and the guests as Julia and Gregg made commitments for their childrens lives in the future which they will have to strive hard to achieve but knowing them, I'm sure they will.

The only downside was that I forgot my camera.  However they and their family enjoyed the ceremony which is all I can ask for.

Hello George,

We just wanted to thank you very much for carrying out our wedding and naming for Annabelle and Monty.
What a perfect day and we really appreciate all the work you put into making it a special ceremony. You delivered exactly as we wanted and everyone was full of praise for such a perfect ceremony.

Thanks also for our keepsake of the wedding. Great to have it all there for the future. We are so happy to have got married and to have chosen both Humanism and you to do this.  Many thanks and best wishes for Christmas and the new year.

Gregg, Julia, Annabelle and Montgomery.
