Amy and Rupert’s wedding was so special because every element of their wedding had meaning and a personal touch. Amy is creative, and loves designing and making things. From the invitations, through to the reception centrepieces and layout, Amy and Rupert envisioned it all!
Their wedding was at Henzell Chapel, which is situated out past Samford on a private property. The chapel was built by a mother and father who’s children wanted to get married on their family property. In short, it’s stunning and one of a kind. Stone and wood, mixed with grassy hills and beautiful hand carved art make for a perfect combination.
The day arrived and the weather was stunning. Rupert was wearing an incredible suit, perfectly fitted to reflect his personality. Amy was a vision in a white tea length dress with gold sparkly shoulders. The Bridesmaids wore dresses of their choosing – no one matched, but they complimented each other perfectly.
One of the most memorable parts to Amy and Rupert’s wedding was the brass band, made up of ladies and gentleman over the age of 60 years, who played all of the music for the ceremony. This band was significant as it was a way of remembering Amy’s Grandfather who use to play in the band, who passed away sometime before the wedding.
Amy and Rupert’s wedding was very family and friend focused. As their Celebrant, I loved talking about their love, their gorgeous dog, the life they have built together, and their goals for the future. The ceremony was electric and the guests applauded loudly in support of their friends, Amy and Rupert. They included their grandparents, friend, and mother’s in their ceremony too. Amy’s mother read this beautiful reading called, “I Like You”
I like you and I know why.
I like you because you are a good person to like.
I like you because when I tell you something special, you know it’s special
And you remember it a long, long time.
You say, ‘Remember when you told me something special?’
And both of us remember
When I think something is important
you think it’s important too
We have good ideas
When I say something funny, you laugh
I think I’m funny and you think I’m funny too
…And I like you because when I am feeling sad
You don’t always cheer me up right away
Sometimes it is better to be sad…
I like you because if I am mad at you
Then you are mad at me too
It’s awful when the other person isn’t…
I like you because I don’t know why but
Everything that happens is nicer with you
I can’t remember when I didn’t like you
It must have been lonesome then
I like you because because because
I forget why I like you but I do.
I also had the pleasure of working with the incredible Ash from Stories By Ash. The photo’s captured on that day truly reflect Amy and Rupert and the vibe that they were trying to achieve.
Much love to Amy and Rupert xx
