Getting fed up with all this rain now….I have 2 outdoor ceremonies planned for this weekend, so it had best hurry up and dry up!

unfortunately the weather is not something that we can ever predict in this country but we can always enjoy ourselves even if it is raining.
Check the forecast, ensure you have appropriate footwear and purchase a funky brolly or two….A good photographer can always turn a wet day into a fabulous photoshoot too and you will certainly have photos that stand out from the norm.

So as much as I really don’t want to get wet this weekend,it really doesn’t matter if I do, there will still be lots of fun and laughter and celebrations guaranteed.

Traditional Wedding Music

Some more trivia for you, this time courtesy of Chris Laich Music Services who blogged in 2010…….

Have you ever sat waiting for the bride to walk down the aisle, ears straining for the first bars of “Here Comes the Bride” or the “Wedding March,” and wondered how long the tradition of playing these songs has been around?

“Here Comes The Bride,” or its official name, the “Bridal Chorus,” is part of an 1850 opera called Lohengrin written by Richard Wagner. The irony is that in the opera, the “Bridal Chorus” is sung as the bride and groom enter the bridal chamber and the wedding party prepares them for their first night together. Not to mention the whole story of two star-crossed lovers ends in tragedy rather than in a happily ever after.

Usually, the “Bridal Chorus” is played without singing at modern weddings, but you can see the original lyrics and learn more about some of the controversy surrounding it here.

The “Wedding March,” composed by Felix Mendelssohn, was created in 1842 to accompany Shakespeare’s famous A Midsummer Night’s Dream.

Mendelssohn’s wedding march was first played in a wedding in 1847, but it was Victoria, the Princess Royal and Queen Victoria’s daughter, who made it the song to play during a wedding ceremony by having it accompany her own wedding in 1858.

Two of my recent testimonials.

I love helping create the perfect day for all my couples and families, so from the writing and delivery of the ceremony, to getting involved in the prep beforehand if needed, i’m in….

You can’t enjoy your day if you are feeling stressed, some TLC  from your Celebrant can go an awful long way…… 

Dear Michelle,
We just wanted to say thank you for being our Celebrant.
The day was so special, even more so because you are our friend and knew our journey from the very start.  The whole experience was just so personal as well as professional and you wrote us a ceremony that was both fun and serious in all the right places.
You provided us with an unforgettable experience, you are amazing!

Dear Michelle
Thank you for yesterday.  I must say a special thanks also Michelle for mucking in, helping with my dress and all manner of other things that really helped me and the day run smoothly.  It was very kind of you and much appreciated. We were both had an absolute ball.
