When a couple from different Asian cultures come together, it can make a very diverse wedding. Today’s ceremony was for a Vietnamese Bride and her Groom was from East Timor and before the ceremony began, the family and guests had already celebrated a tea ceremony and a feast fir for a king. And even better……. I got to enjoy the feast as well.
What’s a good way to finish off the working week? Have a wedding of course!
I often have grooms joke while discussing preferences for the ceremony that they would like to have the song “Highway to Hell” played, (and they all think they are original, lol) and today one of my brides decided to go with it! Only the first riff of the song before changing to her real chosen music for the processional, (a much more suitable piece for the Carpenters) but it gave everyone a laugh.
It’s always a pleasure to hear about how my couples have moved on with their lives together, especially if it involves little pitter patters of tiny feet! And it is even more of a delight when I am invited back into their lives to help celebrate their new standing.
Wednesday is not your usual wedding day but when you just want to have a small quiet intimate service with just your family and closest friends, in a back yard on Phillip Island, then any day is a good day!
