Proudly part of a new wave of authorised Marriage Celebrants under the age of thirty- five, Jacqueline can conduct weddings, wedding vow renewals, baby namings and commitment ceremonies, including same-sex. Jacqueline enjoys helping to shape the special ceremonies that couples, friends and family remember for a lifetime. If only she had thought to become a Celebrant ten years ago before all her friends got hitched…
Blessed by the natural beauty of Brisbane’s seaside suburb of Wynnum, this wedding was made even more beautiful by the efforts made by the Groom, Brad, to create a romantic wedding by the bay for his Bride, Phannawadee.
Standing before his family and friends, Brad bravely spoke some of his vows in Phannawadee’s native Thai language, which, in English translated to ‘You are in my heart forever, I love you.’ But even more impressive than this gesture was the poem below that he wrote especially for the ceremony.
‘Connecting the Dots’ by Brad Sheriff
‘A life is made of many points, and these points, like dots connected, can trace out where a life has gone and how it’s been affected.
Regardless how the points may lie or how they came to be, without a point you can’t define what a life will be.
So today two lives will be entwined bound by loving and affection and their points from here and further on will always have connection.
And as more points come to their page through faith or fate or whatever. A stronger resolution’s made per square inch drawn together.’
