“Josh and Rachel wish to recognise today the important roles that family plays in their lives, as a couple and as individuals, to thank you for providing the nurturing environments that shaped them into the people that brought them together. It is sad to think you are ‘giving away’ your child or your sibling, but really you’re not giving anything away – you’re gaining a new family member. A good marriage is the result of many years of hard work. Josh and Rachel ask that you continue to guide and support them in this next phase of their lives.”
What a beautiful wedding for this Christchurch-based couple! Josh and Rachel pledged their love, their lives together, and their devotion to God in front of witnesses at the Travelodge in Wellington CBD. It was a short, simple ceremony, but I will never forget the love these two had for each other, echoed in their eyes.
