Tessa& Chris I Disney Inspired Wedding

Getting to know Tessa&Chris was one of the more interesting experiences in what I do. All couples are extraordinary to me - and I remember them for various things - but these two and the passion they share for each other has been blissful to witness with some notable extras. First things first, they’re both teachers and I gotta say I wouldn’t mind my children being looked after them; they’re THAT warm and lovely and caring, and many more things…

But then there comes something I’ll come back to when thinking about their wedding, something Tessa confessed to when we first met; her passion for all things “Winnie the Pooh” in particular and Disney overall. This made it somewhat personal to me as I remember reading A.A. Milne’s book on many occassions, repeatedly and passionately admiring how much wisdom there was, hidden amidst the story of an inostensible bear who constantly trips over himself producing memorable and humorous truths, with the other characters to accompany him, whose personalities we can all relate to in one way or another. I’ve always been tigger btw ;)

Returnig to the book for this blog story, I’ve found some quotes, which I thought suit Tessa&Chris’ story exactly. Here’s the first one:

“I’ve found somebody just like me. I thought I was the only one of them.”

―Tigger, A.A. Milne, The House at Pooh Corner

Yep, that one has THEM written all over. Those who know, know ;)

And then there’s this one, a simple one that covers the whole day, the wedding itself and brilliant relations, respect and love I’ve noticed friends and family members shared:

“After all, one can’t complain. I have my friends.”

—Eeyore, Winnie-the-Pooh by A.A. Milne

Aren’t we truly lucky if we can say and feel the same? 

Then finally there’s my favourite one, connected with what I religiously repeat to my kids as mantra to lead a happy and fulfilled life. And I live by it:

“We didn’t realise we were making memories, we just knew we were having fun.”

Whilst some give it a miss because they might feel it’s to plain for them, alas on the surface only though, I think there’s huge power and true love that encapsules the stories of Winnie the Pooh as well as other characters in various Disney tales. And I think it wouldn’t be a bad idea to sit back, relax and relate oneself to them more, especially during these crazy times we live in today. Tessa and Chris reminded me of that. And their passion as well as love continues to inspire. 

After all, we’re all just after a bit of honey in our lives… 

Thank you Tessa and Chris for allowing me to dive back into my childhood memories and remember teenage conversations with myself. And oh, of course as well, to document Your love and the Big Day! :)
