Every so often we come across a love story so surreal it jerks your heart and sometimes we ourselves have to swallow hard when that bride walks down the aisle. Martin & Lynelle’s story is one of them. A story of perfect timing and grace.
I (Liezel) have known the Breytenbach’s for many years and as their family witnessed how we grew up from school days until now it was a sentimental and emotional union.
At many English weddings this Apache Blessing is read out by a reader and we would love to share this with you –
Apache Wedding Blessing
Now you will feel no storms, for each of you will be shelter to the other. Now you will feel no cold, for each of you will be warmth to the other. Now there is no loneliness, for each of you is companion to the other, You are two persons, but there is one life before you, and one home. Turn together to look at the road you travelled, to reach this—the hour of your happiness. It stretches behind you into the past. Look to the future that lies ahead. A long and winding, adventure-filled road, whose every turn means discovery, new hopes, new joys, new laughter, and a few shared tears. May happiness be your companion, May beauty surround you both in the journey ahead; And through all the years to come. Go this day to your dwelling place and enter into your days together. May your days be good and long upon the earth. Your adventure has just begun.
Dankie julle twee dat ons julle dag met julle kon deel! Dit was onvergeetlik.
Tannie & Ariel
