So, did you watch it, what can you learn from the Royal Wedding? Weddings like that don’t happen very often and when they do the World takes notice. I haven’t really commented much recently, we are still trying to catch up following our daughters wedding and busy with planning the move to our new home later this year, but Harry and Megan’s wedding was a must watch.
What a beautiful day, a truly WOW Wedding! What can you learn from the Royal Wedding … well, if you take just one thing, it’s all about the planning. The weather was fantastic but there will have been plans in place for all conditions.
The gathering of family and friends ~ seeing so many people make their way into the St George’s Chapel all being greeted and shown where to go, being made welcome. The provision for older guests … The Queen and Prince Phillip obviously get very very special treatment – but please consider the comfort of the elderly guests attending your big day.
The Dress ~ the first glimpse of the dress is always a huge moment at a Royal Wedding. The page boys and flower girls performing their roles so beautifully.
The Ceremony ~ and the Most Reverened Michael Curry address on the power of love “two people fell in love and we all showed up!”
The Music ~ what a great mix of solo, choral and congregational singing! The gospel choir singing “Stand By Me” and cellist Sheku Kanneh-Mason playing 3 pieces for the signing of the register were the highlights for me. You can chose music that is right for you.
The First Kiss on the steps as they left The Chapel … a perfect spotlight moment.
This was a Royal Wedding like no other. It had all the pomp, pageantry and ceremony that we are used to but it was also full of personal, modern touches. They truly did Weave themselves into the day, got Others involved and explained their Why (well the commentators did).
