Pink ladies and white flower girls
Can’t I have just one more sweet before I go back in the pool?

God our Creator, be with us now as we celebrate the marriage of Lois and Peter
Give them your blessing.
Grant them happiness, wholeness and long life together and help us to support them with our love.
Eternal love never fails; our love needs to forgive and be forgiven. As we pray and forgive we minister reconciliation. Those who marry are God’s ministers to each other of reconciliation and change. As they grow together, wife and husband foster one another’s strengths, they provide each other with the reassurance and love needed to overcome their weaknesses. From this beginning God draws them now to a new life. They become awake to each other, aware of each other, sensitive to each other’s needs.
Our vows: With my whole self I honour you. All I am, and have, and hope to be I share with you.
You and I Could belong to each other If you need a friend I’m the one to fly to If you need To be loved Here I am Read my mind
Mission accomplished – rings delivered
Blessing the rings
May the Holy One encircle us both with love, and give us grace to love, honour, cherish and support each other wherever our journey may lead.
Just a tad happy!
Spreading flowers is so exhausting: Lois’ son James and granddaughter Talia
A little speech
Honestly, this wasn’t quite what I was expecting when I planned this sabbatical
Peter and Lois, you have declared the love you have for each other and your hopes for the future. You have made promises to each other, and have symbolised these by joining hands and giving and receiving rings. May God enrich the life you have chosen, and fulfil your hopes. We welcome you now as husband and wife.
