A Great Venue for an Intimate Family Wedding
A Family Wedding is a very special event! This gorgeous area of the Bendigo Botanical Gardens provided the back drop for Chrystal and Matt’s Family Wedding. The pond area was a lovely feature behind the ceremony. The little ones enjoyed the ducks and searching for “dinosaurs”! Seating in the shelter was used by the guests who were then able to hear and see everything. It is a great option for a smaller, more intimate Family Wedding!
Children at Weddings
Children at weddings!!❤️❤️❤️
Matt and Chrystal’s wedding was a true family affair . Their boys had roles of carrying the rings and a sign. They were right up in the action to hear and see everything! At one stage, the whole family formed a circle holding hands! So cute!
Pledge to Children:
Chrystal and Matt made a special pledge to the boys. They promised to care for and nurture them as long as they needed their parents!
Ritual: Sand Ceremony
Chrystal and Matt chose to include a Sand Ceremony into their Family Wedding. It provides a visual reminder of the family. Each family member poured a layer of different coloured sand into a jar. Something new and beautiful was created. Just like sand…this family would be difficult to separate! It is a perfect way to involve children in a wedding.
Ritual: Family Certificate
It is often asked whether anyone extra can sign the Wedding Certificate. Unfortunately, because this is a legal document, it is illegal for anyone but the couple, witnesses and the celebrant to write on it! But what I can do is create a Family Certificate that anyone can sign. The children, bridal party, guests can all be included .And the bride can use her married name for the very first time!
This Family Certificate was created by the children for Chrystal and Matt’s Family Wedding.
What a wonderful memory for the whole family!!!
