Katherine and David celebrated their love with a beautiful Wedding ceremony at The Lavender House in Ashburton in front of their family and friends. Katherine’s son accompanied her down the aisle and they chose roses for the Flower Ceremony, pink and white which symbolise new beginnings, happiness and completion.
Their hand fasting cord was made of three strands;
Red for passion, courage, and determination, Black for positivity and protection and White for wholeness and inspiration
Katherine and David invited these qualities and elements into their relationship and affirmations for their marriage.
This amazing couple had been through a lot to be together and chose this poem, read by Amanda.
Love Isn’t Perfect
It isn’t a fairytale or a storybook
and it doesn’t always come easy.
Love is overcoming obstacles,
fighting to be together,
holding on and never letting go.
It is a short word,
easy to spell,
difficult to define,
and impossible to live without.
Love is work,
but most of all,
love is realising that every hour,
every second of it was worth it
because you did it together
Happy Ever After to you both!
