Our church can, at times, be unconventional. Because the wedding was so closely connected with birthdays (the bride’s the day before the wedding, the groom’s the day after), it was decided that we had to include another ‘birthday box’ special at the end of the ceremony.

Stacey charadesWe enjoyed a silly game of ‘Mr & Mrs’ and tried to match the baby photos of couples with how they look now (more on this later), not to mention writing versions of wedding preparations (my personal favourite was the one which started ‘Gobby and Competitive’ instead of ‘Stacey and Stephen’!) and playing ‘Wedding Speech bingo.’
