They say it's a long way to Tipperary, not so much however when you are traveling to see such a loved up couple say I do.

 

Rarely do I see a groom so organised that he plans suppliers, usually the groom nods and agrees but DJ took it all in his stride.  Two simple phone-calls and the photography was booked, Caroline's preferences were his only priority.    It seems however Caroline's preferences were his only priority from the moment he met her, I wonder did DJ need swimming lessons at all....

 

With just days to go DJ and Caroline learned that their church was a building site, cherry picker backdrops do not tend to lend themselves to 'creating an atmosphere'.  Thankfully however an alternative was arranged which was more than suitable.   During a summer that has been less than desirable, on this day the clouds split and the sun shone.  The little moments of wind and drizzle were happily ignored due to the gratitude of the warmth of a glowing sun.

 

For me there were many different elements of the day that I will remember, from Caroline's lack of nerves, Hannah being 'a little bit pregnant', Mr. Lenihan's (Daddy) attention to details when it came to the ties to the cute jars of honey on the table and the homemade candles for the ceremony.  Most of all however, what stood out for me was simplicity.  DJ simply loved Caroline as she did he and nothing else mattered.  There was no need for extravagance, no need for huge gestures just the simplest of words, 'I do'.   Caroline and DJ fit, from the love they showed each other to the love they adorned on those around them throughout the day, I have no doubt that they were anything but made for each other.  Yes DJ showed me from our first conversation that he loved Caroline but in turn Caroline showed him, because she chose to, each and every day including on this day.

 

To end, DJ and Caroline let me say this, true love is unconditional, it is just there, we cannot decide to love someone but we can choose to accept our love for someone.  It is thought that getting married is the ultimate declaration but this I deny.  The best was to declare your love for one another is through marriage, a sustained and happy marriage spanning the years of your lives together.  I ask you to reflect, should you ever need to, on this day.  Not on the celebrations but on the conscious choice to accept one another as your forever and forever may you be!

 

All of my love,

Rachel
