The naming ceremony you put together for Brodie was such a beautiful and special day for (us) all – it meant so much to us to have chosen you to share the experience with us. You’re an amazing celebrant… You had some amazing ideas; all the hard work you put in, and all the behind the scenes work you did definitely showed in the presentation.
Thank you so much again. I highly recommend you to others if they’re looking for a great, and easy going celebrant.
Focusing on what is important to each of you and both of you, will help you decide the promises you want to make each other, and what and who to incorporate in your ceremony.
I ask couples to reflect on why they’ve chosen to commit to each other, and I suggest making and taking some well-spent time out both together and independently to think about this. I provide a long list of questions to act as prompts.
Here’s one for today:
♥ What’s the biggest compliment you could give your partner? ♥
Mine… He’s kind –
I bow deeply – Thich Nhat Hanh
Standing quietly by the fence, you smile your wondrous smile,
I am speechless, and my senses are filled by the sounds of your beautiful song,
beginningless and endless.
I bow deeply to you.
Even after all this time the sun never says to the earth, “You owe me.”
Look what happens with a love like that, it lights the whole sky.
