Barbara and Warren are a beautiful couple who first met a few years ago on a bus trip from Sydney to Melbourne. They started dating soon afterwards and have been inseparable ever since. As their friendship grew and blossomed into a deep love, they soon realised that they wanted to be with each other forever. Their love and devotion for each other is unique, genuine and special. From leaving little love notes in lunchboxes to jointly caring for their ‘family’ of animals, Tommy, Ringo, Big Dog and the Birdies, which they love dearly, to enjoying the simple things in life, they place all their energy in making sure their relationship is full of happiness, because at the end of the day, that is what is most important to them.
Even though the rain somewhat spoiled plans for their outdoor ceremony, surrounded by family, friends and a whole heap of love, they exchanged vows to become husband and wife. Please allow me to share a beautiful reading from the ceremony which truly expresses how Barbara and Warren feel about each other;
I Love You Because
I love you because you’re my future,
my present and part of my past.
My world has been turning so quickly,
and time just keeps moving so fast.
I love you because you have something,
no ordinary person could give.
Warmth that I will cling to forever,
and hold onto as long as I live.
I love you because your devotion,
is tender and wonderfully rare.
And no-one could ever imagine
the magical moments we share.
I love you because you are truthful,
your eyes hold a key to my heart.
I know that you share my commitment,
and I know that we never shall part.
I love you because you are wonderful.
and you give me all that I need.
A hug when I seek reassurance,
and a smile when we’ve disagreed.
I love you because – I just love you,
for too many reasons to say.
And I’ll always be right here beside you,
a breath and a heartbeat away.
Whilst it rained off and on throughout the day, everybody enjoyed themselves as we had guests ‘sing for their supper’, messages from overseas, lovely speeches and dancing, including an impromptu pole dance by a guest and the mother of the groom, utilising the centre pole of the marquee which had everyone in stitches from the laughter.
The theme for Barbara and Warren’s wedding was butterflies – when Barbara’s grandfather passed away she always saw butterflies at his grave, then when Barbara and Warren moved into their house together, two butterflies comfortably placed themselves on the fly screen door of their home. Needless to say Barbara and Warren both feel very blessed and supported by her grandparents in their love for each other.
Barbara and Warren it was such a privilege and honour to be a part of your wedding day as your Hawkesbury Wedding DJ & MC and a great personal pleasure to get to know you both. I know you have a very special love and I know that, that love will grow stronger with each and every passing day. May love, laughter and music continue to fill your lives forever!!!
