Hi, my name is Ebs and I have a propensity to cry at weddings.
I cry at weddings, watching wedding videos and there was even that time Kat showed me the most amazing proposal video ever and I bawled my eyes out at that too.
Yep, I’m a sucker for love and seeing true love being expressed openly and honestly makes my heart melt and my begin to bring forth an outpouring of tears.
Last night one of my most special and beloved friends Sarah got married to who I told to his face is the luckiest man in the world, Jono.
I’ve missed the majority of Sarah and Jono’s love story.
I guess this year I’ve been going through some shit this year and have tended to be a bit of a hermit or only really seen those people who haul their ass to Redfern to keep me company, which essentially sucks because I have let some friendships lag that I do really want to keep.
But anyway, Jono and Sarah meant about seven or eight months ago and it’s been a whirlwind romance. Some people might doubt the truth of a brief dating period followed by an engagement and marriage, but Sarah is one of those people who is all about love.
She loves so many people in her life and is constantly giving whatever she can to support the people she loves, and when it comes to romance, she is known to fall hard and fast.
By the sounds of things Jono, her Peruvian hubby, is very similar.
Lovers in onesies
The wedding was so incredibly beautiful.
After the entrance of three bridesmaids, Sarah entered the room in a jawdroppingly (yes, I’m making that a word) stunning gown with her father on one arm and her beloved uncle on the other.
The little woman on the right of the screen is Sarah’s mum. How proud does she look?!
From the moment she entered the room, looking more beautiful and happy than I ever imagined, tears began pooling in my eyes.
By the time the ceremony started, I was an absolute mess.
The beautiful bridal party
Thank goodness I had my friend Des hugging me because my god, I was an absolute wreck.
Later Sarah’s uncle came up to me and said “were you crying during that ceremony? like a lot?” and I sheepishly answered “yes, I cry at weddings and I also felt like I was giving my baby away”.
Ahhh drunken hyperbolic statements, thank you. But in all truth, Sarah has played a significant role in my life and the life of my mother for almost nine years now so seeing her happy and in love just filled me with so much emotion.
The ceremony was beautiful. The bride and groom are incredibly in love and will be having a second wedding in Peru.
There’s not much else to say except for a brief moment, one night, I suspended my cynicism of love and delved into a world where anything is possible.
NB: As Mum couldn’t be there, she asked me to print off a photo of her and tell Sarah Mum was there in spirit. A lot of Sarah’s friends know and love my Mum hence the no of people holding up an image of my mother attached to a plastic picnic spoon.
