From the moment I met Jessica & Charlie I knew their wedding was going to be a wonderful and special occasion and one that I was extremely excited to be involved in. They are such a beautiful, warm and loving couple, it’s hard not to feel like you are in the company of long time friends in their company.
Their wedding was set on the beautiful Lindenderry Estate with their ceremony held with spectacular views of the surrounding rolling hills and vineyards of Redhill. The perfect setting for a picturesque wedding.
As Jessica and the girls put the finishing touches on getting ready, guests mingled and were entertained by the sound of a wonderful duet as they anticipated the brides arrival.
Jessica’s dress was timeless and she looked such a breathtakingly beautiful bride on the arm of her very proud Dad Bill as she made her way down the stunningly long 50 metre aisle. Her smile clear to see from a distance.
Charlie who was surrounded by his supportive and fun groomsmen looked really happy to see his beautiful bride make his way towards him.
Jessica and Charlie stood together at the top of the aisle surrounded by their nearest friends and family. Their ceremony was a real and honest celebration of their love and the respect they have for each other.
Jessica’s aunty Jenny contributed to the ceremony by reading the beautiful “Blessing of hands”.Jenny, gently held her own hands over Jessica and Charlie’s clasped hands as she read the beautiful blessing. So much poignance and power in the gesture of a touch.
“These are the hands of your best friend, young and strong and full of love for you, that are holding yours on your wedding day, as you promise to love each other today, tomorrow, and forever.These are the hands that will work alongside yours, as together you build your future.These are the hands that will passionately love you and cherish you through the years, and with the slightest touch, will comfort you like no other”
Standing alongside their bridal party., through the ceremony we heard stories of Charlie’s romantic proposal and of the qualities they have come to admire in one another.
In a beautiful and heartfelt moment of exchanging their vows and rings a few tears rolled down Jess’s face
The newlyweds were met with such a great applause and excitement as I introduced them to their family & friends for the first time as husband and wife. This wedding had it all. It was filled with timeless, stylish, personal touches, laughter, tears and smiles.
Jessica & Charlie I am truly grateful for the pleasure and honour of officiating your wedding. I loved getting to know you and I am sure you will continue to make each other very happy for many years to come.
