Sarah + Cody

A good marriage must be created. In marriage the little things are the big things.
It is never being too old to hold hands.
It is remembering to say “I love you” at least once a day.
It is never going to sleep angry.
It is at no time taking the other for granted; the courtship should not end with the honeymoon, it should continue through the years.
It is having a mutual sense of values and common objectives.
It is standing together facing the world. It is forming a circle of love that gathers the whole family…

…It’s not only marrying the right person, it’s being the right person, and that is the art of marriage

THE ART OF MARRIAGE by Wilferd Arlan Peterson

I think Sarah and Cody’s choice of reading goes to show a lot about the kind of relationship they have cultivated. That is, one of mutual adoration, respect, love and each one bettering the other.

Supported by the love of their family and friends surrounding them, in the beautiful setting of Tropical Gardens, UWA, their wedding was full of true love and beauty.

DOVE is in the Air…

Have you ever wondered why my logo has images of birds in it? Let me give you a background story.

My dear Dad has hand-raised and kept birds since he was a boy. From doves to parrots and everything in between. That means that my growing up was very colourful with pet birds! My brother also picked up a taste for the feathered variety and now raises and keeps birds himself.

As for me, I have always had a fondness for birds, wether it’s a local magpie, galah or little wagtail. As a child I used to carry around our family’s hand-raised pink and grey galah everywhere-even to the potty! (Shame) I share this to illustrate my love for birds.

I also love that they fly, which presents an image of motion, as well as a symbol of freedom and joy.

My Dad has turned his passion into a business of dove releasing and called it Releasing Celebrations

Now I don’t know if as a bride, you have considered releasing doves at your wedding, but it can be a beautiful thing to add to your day.
