Adam and Emily got ready for their big afternoon and evening Coogee wedding at home, which is in Coogee. A quiet start to the day, enjoyed with their friends, and a stroll away from the Coogee Surf Life Saving Club that represents the beginnings of their relationship.

Adam and Emily are in love. I guess we always expect it in the vows but I love hearing it in speeches, chit-chat, and in what everyone else is saying about the couple. It’s the evidence of a great relationship when they talk about anything and yet it carries the weight of their love. It makes you feel glad to be part of it. Happy to be a witness. And privileged to learn from it.

Quite evidently they also love their families. They were so keen to have their Coogee wedding be more than just an event. They wanted to be surrounded by family and friends. They wanted them to know how they felt, not just because they kept saying it. They found lots of ways to include them in the wedding day.

Adam and Emily married at Shark Point, Clovelly. They walked across the field together, greeted their respective mothers and continued down the aisle. They stood, witnesses behind them, their beloved ocean in front and exchanged their vows.

And it was in more than just the food, drink, cake, music and dancing. Adam’s younger and very talented brother Brad provided the music.

They eliminated that dichotomy that some weddings have of wanting to take photographs and wondering what the guests can do in that time period. They wanted everyone having fun together and made it more than just canapés by playing lawn bowls on those beautiful greens overlooking the ocean at Clovelly Bowling & Recreation Club.

Inside the club several long tables allowed all the guests to sit close to each other – heavy laden platters, an emphasis on exquisitely barbecued meats, were passed around.

There’s a single image that keeps reverberating to me from their day. It is a photograph of Adam’s father and his brother dancing together. For those that know it tells more than it shows. Adam’s father died not long after their wedding. They knew it was a monumental effort for him to be there.

The circle of love is never long enough is it. Not when we feel so strongly about who is in our life.

Congratulations Adam and Emily. And thank you!
