Yesterday I acted as Celebrant for a couple from the Gold Coast and their three young children all under the age of 5. We had a babysitter in attendance and everyone had a wonderful time. The bride looked amazing and bought her dress on ebay. They spoke some beautiful words to each other with lots of tears but even more laughter.
Yesterday was such a busy day for me – for some reason 21st February was very popular. I conducted two ceremonies in the Angsana Chapel in the morning and then travelled to Mount Sheridan to perform a naming ceremony for the new baby born to a couple I had married 2 years ago. I then travelled back to Palm Cove to conduct a renewal of wedding vows on the beach with close friends and family attending. The couple’s two children took part in a sand ceremony and their two year old son seemed to have a lot of fun and their seven year old daughter read out a poem she had written herself. After a lovely cocktail in the Far Horizons Restaurant I made my weary way home again.
On 14th February I took part in a promotion for Palm Cove and Tourism Palm Cove conducted a competition asking for the best reason why someone should receive a Renewal of Wedding Vows in the Angsana Chapel at Palm Cove. It was a lovely day and the couple had been married for 50 years this month. I really enjoyed taking part and I hope they will run another promotion in 2011.
Yesterday morning I married two young people on the rooftop of a Cairns apartment with guests from interstate and locally. I think they had fun and certainly seemed very happy.
On 6th February I acted as Celebrant for a lovely wedding on the beach opposite Peppers Beach Club and Spa at Palm Cove and again another beautiful day in Paradise with flat blue sea and not a cloud in the sky. It was a little warm as it usually is at this time of year but everything went beautifully.
