Weddings are wonderful, there is no two ways about it… and I love them. But more than just a regular wedding I love weddings of those I love, weddings I get to share in, support and embrace. And lucky for me, on Friday I was honoured to share in another wedding of a wonderful friend.
The thing about weddings is while there are a lot of things that remain similar between them, they are always different, coloured by the personalities of the bride and groom and all that makes them and their love for each other unique. Watching and attending weddings is always special, always a little magical and Friday’s was no exception. On Friday one of my dearest friends married the love of her life, and I was privileged enough to not only witness their marriage, but stand by Sia as one of her bridesmaids. I know that in my last wedding post about ‘My Best Friends Wedding’ I talked about the incredible blessing that being a bridesmaid has been and those feelings remain the same. It was such a special honour to be part of Sia’s wedding day, before, leading up to it and in the day itself. And it is something that I will continue to carry on now after the wedding, a responsibility to continue to pray for and cherish their marriage and life together.
Sia and I haven’t been friends for all that long, in fact its less than 3years, but I feel like she has been a friend that was hand picked for me, by God, for just when I needed her. A friend whose counsel is as Proverbs would say as sweet as perfume and incense (Proverbs 27:9). She has been such a blessing to my life and I know that our friendship is more than just chance, but something that has been designed for a much greater purpose. So to be able to share such a significant moment with her and her new husband Ben is something more wonderful than this blog can really do justice. So just like Kirsten’s wedding I thought it might be easier to just share a few wonderful moments captured through out the day.
