Their Saturday started with showers, that teased us on and off during the morning. By lunchtime the skies had cleared to reveal a beautiful, bright sun with fluffy white clouds.
This loving couple had set their wedding ceremony scene on top of the Caroline Bay Lookout. This lookout gave us glorious views of the Pacific Ocean, the Southern Alps Mountain Range, Timaru township, the penguin colony and our working Port. The workings at the port seem to cease during the ceremony so the sounds of seagulls and waves became our background music.
We had a small intimate gathering of close family and friends, some who had travelled to join Kerry and Lis, on their very special day. Their ceremony was filled with love and emotion. I must admit, I had a lump in my throat which I somehow managed to swallow down, and continue to read their ceremony with no one the wiser. Thankfully, I had read their ceremony numerous times for preparation, I could still remember the words even when a tear threatened to fill my eye and blur my vision.
Kerry and Lis and been a couple since 1998 and had two teenage boys who were very much a part of their ceremony. This wonderful family have such a strong bond and their boys were right by their side. Their love and support for each other was so strong that it will be a fond memory and feeling I will remember for a very long time.
Lis and Kerry - I wish you a lifetime that will continue to be filled with love, happiness and many, many moments of joy.
