I'm still trying to be tidier and Derek is still trying to accept my mess!
I have a feeling this is going to be a recurring theme for our marriage, but we knew what we were getting into and honestly wouldn't have it any other way. We are imperfect people, and the fact that our vows allowed us to be imperfect, accepting of each other and happy anyway was exactly what we needed.
ceremony was. Mostly people said that it felt 'real'.
A lot of our family and friends had never been to a humanist wedding before and were moved by how personal it was.
Although Derek and I both knew we wanted a humanist ceremony, neither of us really knew what that would look like.
I suppose we were a bit shellshocked with the talk of 'homework' and writing our own ceremony - after all we wanted it to be good lol.
We got a chance to tell our story to the people who matter most in the world to us and for that we truly thank you.
We joked, laughed and cried while writing our ceremony - which I think is the whole point - and ultimately it helped bring us closer and really take ownership of our wedding day.
