"We can't thank you enough Gaye for agreeing to be our Celebrant! We wanted you right from the time we first got engaged and we were devastated to find out later that someone else had booked you on OUR preferred wedding date! No worries - we hadn't had the invitations printed at that stage - so we changed the date! With no regrets. You were fabulous and WE had the perfect Ceremony we knew we would! Plus - it poured with rain and the Heavens opened on the windy day THEY had!"
"My Husband and I (so proud to write that!) want you to know that although it teemed down and even uprooted trees on our wedding day you were so right! We remembered you saying - at one of our interviews - not to worry if something went wrong on our day because it would give us something to tell the Grandchildren about one day in the future, with stories of 'Guess what happened on Nana and Poppa's wedding Day'?" Well now we have. You made us all laugh when the roof at the venue leaked, when the Best Man's shoes got covered in mud and the bridesmaid's umbrella blew inside out - with your sense of humour you made even those things appear as if they had all been arranged in order to make us laugh - and prove to everyone present that nothing was going to ruin our wedding day.
That our love would conquer all! Which it did!
We definitely want you for a Naming ceremony one day in the future (we're working on it) but have decided that if and when it ever happens we are going to celebrate it indoors!
Sorry but if it turns out to be a daughter I hope you won't be offended if we don't name her "Gaye". But we WILL tell her how thrilled we were to have you marry us!"
