Sunday morning greetings

Arriving at Saltwater Restaurant at Emerald Beach saw me inundated with hugs from three different couples dining there. It was quite emotional.

The first couple had a fabulous wedding down on the beach just over a year ago on one of those glorious, perfect days by the waters edge. There were a couple of highlights I recall beside their heartfelt vows. The bride’s father sang a traditional Korean love song as part of the ceremony and at the close her mother, sister and father joined the bride to sing a welcome song to the groom. It was very touching.

The other two couples were sitting together at a long table with family members and a few children. The couple had called me and booked their wedding on a Saturday over five years ago. The bride had her sister and partner coming out from Ireland for the ceremony and they decided that they too would like to get married. However, so as not to steal the glory from her sisters wedding on the Saturday, they chose to organise a naming ceremony for their young son on Sunday morning and surprise the remaining family with a wedding as well! Both sisters were very excited with this plan and all went very well. Now they both have two children each and are doing really well. It was lovely to see them all.
