Ah what a joyous occasion to see my old flatmate, Danielle and her beloved, Josh tie the knot over the weekend. All weddings and love stories are beautiful but this occasion was something truly special.
In the moments waiting for Danielle to arrive I reflected on the many laughs, words of encouragement, stories of resilience and fight and the bottomless glasses of wine we consumed in the 2 years or so of living together. The many nights of vampire baking (vampire baking; middle of the night baking when the house is still and the kitchen is available), the necessary reminders of whether Danielle had her passport as she jetted off to different parts of the world for work, the bleary eyed look of pre-coffee death and the immediate perk up after the consumption of caffeine, the celebratory bubbles turned truth serum as we shared our loves, lives and travesties – ah they were good times!
As soon as Danielle stepped foot into the church there was no doubt we were transported to a beautiful bubble of love and commitment shared between Danielle and Josh, it was no longer just the church in the middle of the city where a demonstration/ rent-a-crowd was going off outside the Town Hall. Josh beamed, Danielle sparked and I was just honoured to have been part of their day.
Danielle and Josh, may the adventure ahead as a married couple be ever blessed now and always. xoxRead more →
