Eventually we arrived in the Piazza and, surrounded by surprised and delighted passersby, the ceremony began, drawing inspiration from this wonderful location.

A fifth wedding anniversary is associated traditionally with wood.  Venice was built on wooden structures which has supported this beautiful city for centuries. Wood certainly lasts and can be shaped into many forms, just like your marriage.”

“Be glad your love was planted together; went through the storms together; created a life together and like any strong piece of wood keep riding the waves and never sink.  You have reached half a decade in love with your partner and you have proven you are just like the traditional wood material, able to stand the test of time and grow stronger with age.”
