A Happy Start Part Two

(continued from Post One Part One below)
Here are a couple of lovely photos Kristen sent me that I’ve scanned and cropped.
The photos are by Kelly Tunney.
(To be fair to Kelly, I must tell you that the photos below are scanned images of photos and have lost quality in the scanning.)




Kristen wrote me:
(and gave permission for me to share)
‘...We were so pleased with how the day went and so many people commented on how wonderful the ceremony was (someone even mentioned that you looked as happy to be marrying us as we were to be getting married, which I thought was a great compliment!)
Thank you so much again...’





Bryony and Josh wed in the Heart Garden on February 19 this year

- Watch this space for Post One Part Three. There'll be lots of photos from the wedding.

A Very Happy Start






I’ve been planning to join blogger for such a long time and at last it’s happening. I'm calling it my ‘wed-blog’ because it’s all about weddings, especially weddings in Canberra and nearby.
I have lots of ideas for blogs so I plan to keep this site quite active. I’d love to have correspondence to enter into, so please feel free to post comments.
For my first wed-blog which I’ve called ‘A Very Happy Start’ I have some photos and comments from two very happy couples. They got in touch with me recently about their weddings. I’ve never asked for testimonials yet I get lots of great feedback in letters and emails of thanks and appreciation. For all of them, I am thankful and appreciative.
Kristen and Peter married at Gold Creek Chapel on February 7 this year
I love being a marriage celebrant so it’s very easy for me to put my heart into everything I do. Just about always, several guests will tell me how much they enjoyed the ceremony. If this doesn’t happen, I'm surprised and I wonder if there is something I could have done differently, and better.
Of course I find the joy of the bride and groom contagious, and this was certainly so at Kristen and Peter’s wedding. As you’ll see in their photos, they were both beaming.







END OF POST ONE PART ONE
(I just can't work out how to place the other photos where I want them, so I'll put them in
POST ONE PART TWO)
Bye for now
