Sometimes you come across people who make you feel alive, like every minute is there to be enjoyed and celebrated, that life is a gift. I remember feeling that way when I left Miriam and Peter after meeting them first. I was overcome with happiness and it was down to their contagious love, being around them you can't but smile.
Peter is giddy, like a child on Christmas morning every single time I see him. It's like he always has something to do, something to be excited about, some news to share whilst Miriam is so calm and relaxed. Their wedding morning was no different.
I was so excited for this day, more than usual because already I had taken a huge liking to Miriam and Peter. We were doing things ever so slightly different by meeting the boys at the barbers so it was an early start, they had to get ready well on time to catch their helicopter to the venue. True to form the girls were super relaxed, taking it in their stride. Miriam was so calm, ready to marry her man.
Carol took over covering the afternoon and in her capable hands their stunning ceremony was captured, including the laughter and the giggles. Little Reece wanting to be close, all the while. A beautiful day was spent by the guests in the courtyard, surrounded by games, filled with laughter.
For Miriam and Peter, for many reasons you will forever hold a place in my heart but no reason more than your love for life together. You have something so many yearn for and you take none of it for granted, for that I admire and respect you both even more.
I wish you every happiness in the world, every smile to be shared with one another. Please always remember, that even if it were only me, which I am so sure it is not, remember that together you encourage people to enjoy life just that little bit more and that is a huge gift which I am sure you will share with your growing family.
All of my love,
