Holy Frickin' Frack!
Gosh golly, you'll never guess what happened to us this week.

Some of you thought it would never happen, and some of you thought it already had. Well, you were BOTH wrong! On May 10th, on an empty beach in Esperance, Western Australia, in front of seven special guests (and a dog) Kevin and Aimee finally became husband and wife.

The Re-enactment...

Every wedding ceremony at which a clergyman, a rabbi or a celebrant officiates is, of course, a marriage which already exists. This ceremony gives social recognition to a union which has already taken place in the hearts of the couple present.
It is Kevin and Aimee’s wish at this time to declare their marriage to the world. It is a statement of commitment to each other and to the ideals they already have.
   Kevin and Aimee, you have inspired and transformed each other with the vision of your future together. You both treasure integrity, peacefulness, and a unique sense of celebration of life. You find each other generous, gentle, bright, and loyal. You both love travel, appreciate a shared sense of humour, and together, you honour and cherish the idea of family.
   Today as Kevin and Aimee proclaim their love to the world, we who are gathered here rejoice with them and for them in the new life they now undertake together.

Giving Away of the Bride
  Who brings this woman to be married to this man?
  I do.

The Asking
  Do you, Kevin, take Aimee to be your wedded wife; to have and to hold, from this day forward; for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health; to love and to cherish everlastingly without end?
  I do.

  Do you, Aimee, take Kevin to be your wedded husband; to have and to hold, from this day forward; for better, for worse, for richer, for poorer, in sickness and in health; to love and to cherish everlastingly without end?
  I do.

  From the moment we grew together, we have ceased to be two separate souls. We love each other, encourage each other, comfort each other and respect each other. I promise never to stop. I promise to love and encourage, honour and respect, entertain and inspire, hold and comfort you. But above all, I promise to laugh. Together, we will laugh when the wind is pressing us back, we will laugh in the eye of the worst storm, and laugh when the only sustenance we have is one another. I promise to laugh the hardest when the world would see us cry. I promise to laugh with you forever, for you have already given my life more laughter than you could ever know. I make these promises willingly, joyfully & whole heartedly, for you are my will, my joy, and my whole heart.

  Kevin, long before today, I had already chosen you to be my partner in life. I love you more today than I did yesterday, and I promise to love you even more tomorrow than I do today. I promise to inspire your ideas, share in your dreams, to treasure your smile, and to mirror you with my soul. For you, I will be the most that I can; and I will always love you sweetly and gladly forever. I am ready to walk with you, hand-in-hand, and side-by-side, toward our amazing future together.

  With this ring, I thee wed
  Take and wear it
  As a pledge of my love
  And as a symbol of all we share.

  May God be with you and help you grow together. May the Lord bless you and keep you. May the Lord cause his face to shine upon you and be gracious unto you. May the Lord lift his countenance upon you and give you peace. Amen.

  Kevin and Aimee, you have declared before all of us that you will live together in marriage. To be true and real, this ceremony should be something more than just a legal recognition of your marriage. Regard it also as a symbol of your love, a consecration of each to the other and of both to the noblest ends of life.
  So, on behalf of your families and friends, both here, and around the world, I now have much pleasure in declaring you to be husband and wife.
  You may kiss the bride!

Though we would have loved to invite you all, we've heard that weddings with more than seven guests can be a little stressful (and honestly, the 20,000 people who follow the website each month just wouldn't have fit on that rock). But, we'd love to hear from you! Please oh please, won't you sign our register?
