Ethan was born 12 years ago and Courtney made their family complete three years later. They love their family camping trips and caravan holidays: they recently climbed their first Munro!
It took quite a long time for Ray to pop the question. Being a sensible man, he proposed with a Haribo ring so that Lisa could choose the one she liked herself (note to prospective grooms, this is generally a smart idea!) and a year later, we all got together to celebrate on their big day.
Niece Amy and nephew Ashton both gave us readings, then we had a moment for quiet contemplation before Ethan joined us to present the rings to his mum and dad.
And then pretended he didn't have them... which went down a storm.
Lisa sent me these photos by Carrie Roy the other day, saying 'Thank you for conducting our wedding ceremony, we had an amazing day from the beginning to the end! We wish we could do it all over again and thank you for making us both feel at ease. All our guests commented on how lovely the ceremony was and how personal it was to us all.'
I'm so pleased to read that, Lisa: as I always say, 'that's because you wrote it!' so congratulations are due to you for writing such a great script.
I wish you and Ray and Ethan and Courtney every happiness and I look forward to hearing from you when you do your next Munro!
