During the ceremony many guests told stories, read poetry, and gave their best wishes to the newlyweds making the ceremony filled with laughter and a few tears. The stories included memories of the bride and groom first meeting at Merigar at the age of three.

One of the couple’s best friends, Viola Gracis, shared this poem, ‘On Marriage’ by Khalil Jibran. Here is an extract from it.

Love one another, but make not a bond of love:

Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls.

Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup.

Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf

Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone,

Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music.
