Magic Moment In Time

By Guest Blogger, Ann Hills, Sunshine Coast wedding celebrant

All weddings are beautiful, but there are some that stand out.  It is not just the wedding dress or the colour of the bridesmaids or the location and mind you there are some stunning locations particularly around the Sunshine Coast. It is a moment in time.

I had a wedding recently that has stuck in my mind.  The location was – The Little White Wedding Church in Maleny.

The weather was perfect and I was standing at the front of the church with the Groom anticipating the arrival of the Bride. At the back of the Chapel the double doors remained closed.   The word came that the Bride had arrived and was having last minute photos attended to. The music chosen was a classical piece which set the tone for expectation, the bridesmaids entered from the side door looking exquisite.  A few second lapsed and then with a burst, the double doors opened and there stood the bride, her veil covering her face, looking demure and absolutely exquisite.   It took everyone’s breath away.  I glanced at the groom who burst into tears and I must admit I shed a few tears myself.  The effect was stunning.

I wish this for every Bride and Groom on their special day.
