Maree and John have been previously married and both have children. The oldest son of John, 14 year old Bobby, disapproved of his father’s marriage to Maree.
The couple wanted Bobby to be a part of the wedding and it was suggested that he take a lead in the ceremony. After consultation with Maree, John and myself he was asked to give Maree away. Surprisingly he agreed, happy to be included in an important part of the ceremony.
In my experience there are few problems that cannot be overcome in a wedding. A part of the Celebrant’s brief is to help smooth over personal issues to everyone’s satisfaction.
