When talking about Kerry and Shaun’s wedding I could wax lyrical about the incredible venue, the wonderful food, the mind boggling scenery and the amazing outfits, but I wont. I will tell you about the heart of the wedding! Kerry and Shaun have walked a rocky mountain to get to the point of marriage. Their love for each other has seen them through a tough journey which ultimately landed up in outdoor wedding ceremony at Hartford House with their absolute nearest and dearest. It was an emotional day, an honest day, and an authentic day. There was no holding back or pretending but there was alot of pure joy, true love and deep respect.
Thanks guys for picking me. It was an an unforgettable experience! I am still dreaming about the marshmallow sherbet desert!!
And now for a few words from the Bride
Our weekend wedding celebration was two days filled with the things that we absolutely adore: Passion, whether it’s delicious food, our beautiful children and our wonderful friends and family. The champagne flowed as planned ~ see the invitation ~ (so well that it turned into tequila ) and there were tears, from joy, from loss, from promise of the future, but also from the knowledge that 2 souls finally found each other and that love inspired everyone there.
We chose Hartford House as our venue because of their commitment to joy, joy with which each and every task is undertaken, it is an incredibly special place and we felt that it just embodied how we have decided to live our lives.
Our story is not a fairy tale filled only with sparkly and beautiful things . It’s a real story of two people who have fought hard for their own happiness , to create a life for themselves and their children . This weekend was a celebration of the journey that we have taken over the past few years and it was one that we will never forget .
