This is a very late post about a beautiful wedding that I was lucky enough to officiate way back in April. It was my first wedding and I couldn't have been happier that I was performing the ceremony for our 2 friends, Nathan and Cal. I have to admit that I was pretty nervous leading up to the day, and the night before I had not one but two nightmares that I couldn't get to the ceremony!
We arrived at the venue over an hour before the start time, just so that I felt nice and organised. When I started to get ridiculously nervous, I reminded myself that it wasn't about me. That the day was all about Nathan and Cal, and that I was just there as a helper. This made me relax a whole lot and I really started enjoying myself - getting things ready, and chatting to other friends who were there.
I love weddings. I know I have mentioned this before, but I really do. They are one of the happiest occasions in a couple's life and I always feel so priveleged when I am a part of someone's special day as a guest. But to be a Celebrant at a wedding is a whole new honour. Nathan and Cal wrote their own vows which were just beautiful, and I really felt blessed to be a part of it all.
