When two becomes one

Now, if you are my age you might be picturing a certain Spice girls song – but this post isn’t really about them. No, not at all actually.

Last Saturday was my brothers wedding! And what a magical day it turned out to be. The weather was perfect, everyone looked lovely, the food was great and the entertainment – well let me talk about that later! Sorry about the washed out photo, I thought it was better than none and it has a kind of romantic old world feel to it I thought (paired with the fact I dont think my bro would want any photos of him posted on my blog heh).

My bro and his wife had asked me to do a reading on the day (which they gave me full creative control over) – they didn’t even ask to read what I had written before the ceremony. That is trust! Especially when you know me and what interesting thoughts could come out. It all turned out well though, and I got some very sweet comments from various guests about my reading.

It is hard to believe that they had been dating for 7 years, time sure does fly! So with that in mind it was a beautiful ceremony that captured them both perfectly. At the reception, after the speeches we were all surprised to be directed outside where there was a fire dancer! He was really good, he got everyone clapping and dancing and we were captivated (especially considering we’re in a drought and the grass around him was catching on fire now and then). Haha. He handled it all well though.

I was glad to be a part of such a special day in my brothers life and happy to welcome a new sister-in-law to the family.

It was a big week for me, as a few days before that I also handed my notice in at work! 5 weeks to go!!!
