There’s nothing quite love that first love – that intense feeling of tummy butterflies, delicious deliria, and heart stopping kissing. But there’s something even more special about finding love a second time around – a sense of ease, comfort, assurance, and well being.
Jennifer and Bryan met when their children had become independent, and they gradually formed a relationship which culminated some seventeen years later when they married at Sirromet Wines.
I think Jennifer’s vows summed up their story, ” Bryan, you found me in the Autumn of my life and reaffirmed my capacity to love. In your arms, my spirit has been nurtured and my heart restored. And so I promise to spend the Autumn and the Winter of my life caring for you and loving you.” These vows were just perfect for a second chance at love.
Jennifer and Bryan always aim to see the sunny side of life, and Jennifer appreciates Bryan’s sense of humour which never fails to make her laugh. In his vows, Bryan included the line, ” I promise to listen to you when I’m reversing the caravan,” which had not just Jennifer, but all the guests, giggling a little.
Their wedding ceremony at Sirromet Wines was attended my just their immediate families, which numbered a few with their children and their partners, and grandchildren of varying ages. The grandchildren were involved in the ceremony by presenting the wedding rings and blowing bubbles at the end of the ceremony.
Celebrant Cheryl Landsberry, local to Sirromet Wines, created a relaxed and intimate ceremony for the couple, and took care of all the legal essentials.
Jennifer wore a classic navy dress from Anthea Crawford, and Bryan wore a navy suit. If you’re looking for an outfit for a “mature bride” who doesn’t want to wear a traditional white wedding dress, Anthea Crawford has a huge selection. https://www.antheacrawford.com.au/collections/event-dresses
