I received this beautiful letter all the way from America today! Mike and Maryam wrote:
Mike and Maryam chose a Candle Lighting as part of their Wedding Ceremony at Bovey Castle, Devon. Their mothers lit the outer two candles representing their son and daughter then I asked Mike and Maryam to light the middle candle together:
This candle represents the coming together of two lives and, even though you remain individuals with your own unique strengths and weaknesses, you accept the other as their highest priority. It is a relationship that strengthens the individual through love, honour and respect. As this one light cannot be divided so you will be united from this day forth and go forward into a shining lifetime together.
A truly wonderful ceremony that united, not only Mike and Maryam but their families as well!
