We are well into December now and many of you will probably have already bought or dug up your tree, and it will now be standing resplendent in your homes. I’ve just returned from buying our tree. There is something very romantic about buying a Christmas tree in the snow with the person you love. There has been many a movie scene depicting just that like the image featured here in ‘When Harry met Sally’.
Sadly, I was alone buying my tree today. However, it still reminded me of a wonderfully romantic story that I was told by a couple whose wedding I presented this summer.
I’ve made it no secret that I love an outdoor wedding, but an outdoor wedding at home in the family garden is about the very best. Especially if that garden is the pride and joy of one of the couples’ parents. A wedding really does provide a reason for them to go that extra mile, indulge their passion and use all the fruits of their labour to decorate a marquee, create a beautiful home-grown bouquet and of course a backdrop for a ceremony.
This is going to sound very cliché I know but I felt that I really was on a journey with Katie and Jooles. And a very wonderful one it was too. All weddings are special but there was something about Katie and Jooles. Right from the get-go when I met them on a Facetime call, I just knew that this was going to be a very special occasion. We all got along famously but what I particularly loved was how important to them the actual ceremonial part of their day was.
