Bev and Phil's Wedding

Bev and Phil had wanted to acknowledge the coming together of their two families. Their children were all grown but they all meant so much to them.

Phil's son, Luke and Bev's son, Anthony were standing with Phil in the chapel, and after the flower girl and page boy had entered the chapel, Luke walked down the aisle and escorted his sister, Kylie, in. Anthony then walked out of the chapel and escorted his sister, Rachel into the chapel. Luke and Kylie then stood beside Phil and Anthony and Rachel stood beside Bev. After the signing the girls stood on one side and then the boys stood on the other so when they walked out they could pair up. I am glad we had the rehearsal as on the day everyone knew exactly where they were placed and what was happening!

They had a candle ceremony after they exchanged vows...

Phil and Bev, the two separate candles represent your two families and your separate lives. They also represent the brightness and warmth of your love that you bring into the relationship. I ask that you take your individual candles and that together you light the centre marriage candle. The individual candles represent your lives before today. The flame from the first candle is not diminished when it lights the marriage candle, so too when your love is shared, it will not diminish your source of love, but the sharing will light up the heart of the other.

Their little grandson, Levi bought the rings forward which was also really sweet.
Many blessings Bev and Phil on your adventure together!
