#ContingencyVenue lined up for your #MarriageCeremony

Although it was raining outside, this beautiful marriage ceremony went ahead indoors at this gorgeous venue.
It's always a great idea to have a contingency venue for wet weather arranged and also appoint a #WetWeatherContact who will confirm wedding venue.

Hayley and Joel's Wedding photo. It was a gorgeous wedding, a family celebration of love and commitment and I was their marriage celebrant. I shall always cherish memories of this beautiful wedding, especially as this was my first Hayley. Photo courtesy Sarah Story Photography

Marriage is a journey, not a destination
#MarriageIsAJourneyNotaDestination

Get Married on the Woronora River, Sutherland Shire NSW
Tomas and Rebecca exchanged their vows overlooking the Woronora River, celebrating this wonderful occasion with their nearest and dearest.
"Like the river our life journey meanders through the calmness and serenity of a mill pond and then at times in a turbulent churn, but with faith, hope and love in each other that will us through." ©Jenny

FYI: Confetti
This word originates from the Italian "Confetto", which was the showering of the bride and groom with sweets.
Confetti these days can be flowers, petals, bubbles and these symbolise the "Good Gifts" with which the throwers hope the couple's married life will be blessed.

FYI
"Something Blue"
Rosemary in bloom!
"In the Middle Ages, rosemary was associated with wedding ceremonies. The bride would wear a rosemary headpiece and the groom and wedding guests would all wear a sprig of rosemary. From this association with weddings, rosemary was thought to be a love charm." From Wikipedia.
"In myths, rosemary has a reputation for improving memory and has been used as a symbol for remembrance.
In Shakespeare's Hamlet, Ophelia says, "There's rosemary, that's for remembrance"
AN IDEA:
A sprig of Rosemary included in a bridal bouquet can be a subtle reminder of loved ones who are no longer with us.
Or Rosemary in Bloom, pretty blue blossoms can be a bride's "Something Blue"....
Here are some photos of Rosemary growing in my garden.

FYI - Wedding Boutonnieres or Buttonholes
Did you know that it is customary for the groom and groomsmen to wear buttonholes on the left side of their jacket lapel, near the heart.
This stems from an old superstition to ward off evil spirits. Here the gentlemen are wearing white roses and the groom is wearing a stunning white orchid. This choice of buttonhole is appropriate for a formal wedding, which indeed it was!

When “Love is all around” you.....
Have you ever considered marriage ceremony seating in the “round”.... or semi-circle?
This can be quite meaningful as a circle is a symbol of eternity and “oneness”. What could be more fitting than for the couple to be literally surrounded by the warmth and love of those who support them.
An unique bridal procession travelling around a spiral, enables intimate contact with your guests and the opportunity for everyone to get an all round view of your couturier...
I look forward to conducting a “marriage in the round”.......

Bread and Salt
Customs and Traditions
• Offering bread and salt is a welcome greeting!
• And at a wedding for the “lasting alliance between spouses”
Having utilised this custom in some marriage ceremonies, it was poignant to see it practiced in actual life, whilst visiting Croatia. It has made this ritual more meaningful to me now.
Bread is a symbol of hospitality, “a most respected food” and salt, having been an expensive and valuable commodity reflects the esteem with which a visitor is welcomed.
Here is a photo of a typical Croatian welcome. A basket with bread and salt.
