When I was in my early twenties, someone told me "Make sure you always have something wonderful to look forward to in life".  I never forgot those words, and today I often think how very lucky I am that my work as a celebrant allows me that very thing.   I feel the same enthusiasm and excitement each time I meet a new couple and start planning their wedding.  It's wonderful to see it all come together like a beautiful play in which I play a major part and see the joy on all these faces.  There is a moment of sadness in the farewell, but then...there is the next wedding.  Not many get to be part of so many happy moments in one lifetime.  I do, I love it, and am very thankful for it.
