~ with Sunshine Coast Marriage celebrant, Kari ~
We played a word game. The game produced a list of words.
Write, she said, using all the words on your list …
So I wrote.

my darling, my darling, my love
A necklace for your sanity … my darling, my darling
Your neck will just surrender … my love
Relegate sizing to your tailor … my darling, my darling
Measure your team of suitors … my love
I salivate with surprise … my darling, my darling
Your tears send a sinuous shiver … my love
Lean to my sincerity … my darling, my darling
Tenuous yet necessary … my love
Undulate, manipulate .. my darling, my darling
Ululate the timing … my love
Sing your man a lullaby … my darling, my darling
Be my eager minstral … my love
Round and round the duckpond … my darling, my darling
Mad as a team of yabbies … my love
Eat my words on Sunday … my darling, my darling
And tell me that you love me … my love
Some couples might wonder just how I create unique wedding ceremonies. I draw on creative writing skills to achieve a perfect marriage ceremony for you. I chat with you and we laugh. I get to know you. We talk about life, meaning and wedding wishes; about family and feelings. You tell me your stories. I tell you mine. you get to know me, and feel comfortable with me, the person who will conduct the ceremony on your wedding day.
From all this I weave a tapestry about you, your love story and your wedding day. You also get chances to alter and change, delete and add.
The poem above, is by no means part of a marriage ceremony. It was written within a different context; a creative writing workshop. But if your wedding celebrant can write creatively, you know you can expect a truly unique ceremony, all about you, and your ideas on your marriage. Not just any old ceremony with your names slotted into the gaps.
You want something that is a reflection of you.
Something meaningful, to you.
Something memorable for your family and friends.
Something just a little different, pitched right. Your style in words.
Contact me if you’d like a ceremony written just for you.
