I recently had a couple who had their wedding on an estate, where they had a Blessing in their specially designed Pit Garden. It was truly beautiful and magical as, we were blessed with the arrival of the British summer and suddenly had to work on ‘hot weather’ options.
Anyway, as I was filing earlier, I came across their Blessing programme and I just wanted to share the words they chose for inside the Blessing as very powerful.
To set the scene imagine Winnie the Pooh and Piglet going on a journey, just as any couple would be.
Then, this is the following extract taken from Winnie the Pooh by A.A. Milne.
“Pooh” whispered Piglet
“Yes, Piglet” replied Pooh
“Nothing”, answered Piglet
“I just wanted to be sure of you”
“If you live to be a hundred, I want to live to be a hundred minus one day,
so I never have to live without you”.
“It’s so much more friendly with two”,
“Pooh, promise me you won’t forget about me, ever. Not even when
I am a hundred”.
Pooh thought for a little,
“How old shall I be then?”
Pooh nodded, “I promise”, he said,
“Some people care too much, I think it’s called love”.
So, when you are stuck for words to use for part of your wedding celebration and, you want to express yourselves from the heart remember, Winnie the Pooh and Piglet.
They are many other beautiful authors who can give you inspiration as well but I wanted t share this as I believe it to be ‘special’.
