- Wedding: June 2015 - Historic house and gardens
We met with our celebrant today and signed our ‘Intent to marry’ paperwork. In Australia this is a legal requirement that has to be signed at least one month before the wedding date. We can now get married anytime after a month from now (our wedding is in June).
There are so many options for ceremony styles, but it seems we are all on the same page and she is really flexible with whatever way we want to go. We can pretty much build our own style with her as long as we obviously include the small bit of legal stuff. I’m so happy because I’ve been to some weddings with really stiff formal ceremonies and didn’t want to go that way.
It all feels so much more real now. Seeing him sign that paper and talking about the vows just makes me realise that I really do have all this. It’s not going to disappear. This amazing man really does love me and want to be with me. Yay!! I still can’t believe I’m so lucky to find this person who I can trust so much. It took a long time (we are both in our 40s) but it was so worth the wait.
