Sarah & Fraser

A symbolic wedding with the box ritual and highlighted by a touching moment.

Sarah and Fraser came to meet me in September last year with her parents. Sarah later told she felt an immediate sympathy, that was confirmed on the day of their wedding. Sarah and Fraser chose the box ritual: they wrote two love letters and placed them inside the box. They will open the box on their anniversary and celebrate toasting with a glass of the wonderful Vignamaggio wine. One of the highligts of the ceremony has certainly been when Georgia, Sarah’s young niece, sang Your Song by Elton John: the few guests who had succeeded in not shedding tears during the ceremony had to give up to the beauty of her voice and to her incredible professionalism, despite her very young age. I was so moved by her singing that it took me a while to regain control of my voice. In my long career as a celebrant I am often moved during the ceremonies, but had never reached this point. Truly, a beautiful feeling, thank you Georgia Lasenby, I’m sure you’ll be famous very soon!
