A jazz band entertained guests on a hazy, lazy summer’s afternoon, with cocktails and a vintage camper van gin bar close at hand, until the sun set over the fields and the partying began….
There was a common theme of a ‘circle’ throughout their ceremony:
- The Yurt in which they had their ceremony is a circular shape
- Their circle of friends sat in a circular formation (yay!)
- As the bridesmaids reached the ceremony area at the heart of the Yurt, they placed their bridesmaid posies on the floor to create a circle for Han and Jon to stand in.
- Han & Jon were in the middle of the yurt and the centre of their guests
- Their circular rings have no beginning and no end and are symbolic of their eternal love….
Han and Jon had been on a journey, so too did their rings go on a journey during the ceremony. They were passed from guest to guest asking for everyone’s good wishes, until they made their way back to the Best Man in time for Han & Jon to say their personal vows and exchange their rings, but not before all guests joyously vowed to support the happy couple throughout their married life together in a group promise.
There were happy tears.
We sketched, we laughed, we ate, and we made friends.
What can we say… Justine, you really have been completely amazing.
We met Justine at a last-minute wedding fayre and we couldn’t have been more lucky to have met her. On a windy day, in the middle of a field, we went up to speak to Justine, not fully knowing how important she would become to us. After speaking with Justine for a matter of minutes, we knew that there was no one else we wanted to marry us other than her. We emailed her on our way home making sure to book her in for our wedding day.
Throughout the following months, we were sent some emails with some fun and friendly questions as a way for Justine to be able to get to know us more. We met up with her for lunch and it felt like we had already known her a lifetime. 2-hours, some cheese sandwiches and many laughs later- we had come up with the most amazing service we could have dreamed of. Our friends and family had all been written into the ceremony and our lives together were captured perfectly. Following our lunch-date, Justine typed up our ceremony. Opening this together was a good idea as we couldn’t get through the first 2 lines without one of us crying.
We couldn’t have asked for a more perfect ceremony- there was not a dry eye in sight and so many of our friends and family have said it was the most incredible, personal and emotional service they have been to. What Justine has done for us will stay in our hearts forever and we feel that at that wedding fayre, not only did we meet our Celebrant but we met a friend.
From the bottom of our hearts and from our friends and families too- thank you for giving us the most special gift anyone could give us on our wedding day.
