Treasured memories: Every Ceremony evokes joy and wonder.
I take a selfie with couples when we sign the NOIM and get tingles every time.
An incredible moment of joy and the first 'official' step of ther ceremony.
I have Bollywood danced, spoken in Polish, rubbed noses, hugged and kissed my way through many ceremonies while others have been beautiful because if their simplicty.
One of my strongest memories though, is when I sat across a table to finalise preparations and the bride who had flown across the world, asked about including her father in the ceremony and when I explained how we would do that, she had a tear in her eye and turned to her groom to say “Thank you, this will be more beautiful than I ever imagined”. Then, as he leaned forward to gently & sweetly kiss her forehead, it appeared that time stood still. We were in a crowded building, but not a sound could be heard and no a sight could be seen, apart from the loving gaze they had for each other. I don't think I even breathed though it seemed like minutes went by before they turned back to me to resume the meeting.
