I’ve already posted our lego ceremony here so I will skip that and go straight in the rest of the ceremony.

Super groomsman B did the first (and only) reading for us.  He did amazingly well seeing this was sprung on him very last minute.  We didn’t go conventional for the reading, but it fit well, I had chosen it thinking that the Wolff would choose a second reading but he opted out and I decided not to add a second reading either.

So long, and Thanks for All the Fish – Hitchhikers guide to the galaxy

They looked at each other for a moment.

The moment became a longer moment, and suddenly it was a very long moment, so long one could hardly tell where all the time was coming from.

For Arthur, who could usually contrive to feel self-conscious if left alone for long enough with a Swiss cheese plant, the moment was one of sustained revelation. He felt on the sudden like a cramped and zoo-born animal who awakes one morning to find the door to his cage hanging quietly open and the savannah stretching grey and pink to the distant rising sun, while all around new sounds are waking.

He wondered what the new sounds were as he gazed at her openly wondering face and her eyes that smiled with a shared surprise.

He hadn’t realized that life speaks with a voice to you, a voice that brings you answers to the questions you continually ask of it, had never consciously detected it or recognized its tones till it now said something it had never said to him before, which was “Yes”.

After the reading we went on to our 2nd ceremony the San San Kudo again Super best man B assisted by pouring the sake in to their bowls.

We then took three sips from each of our three bowls while my Aunty the celebrant read out the explanation of San San Kudo

I really felt our whole ceremony very deeply but partaking in San San Kudo was a very grounding experience.
