Thank you @wedlockers for rembering that the true beauty of a wedding lies in the people that were a part of it. Repost @wedlockers with @get_repost. ・・・
“This is Carol. She is beautiful and vibrant and funny and deeply loved. She also has Cerebral Palsy.
I met Carol at the wedding of her sister, Sophia, to Jonathan, in October last year.
This wedding was all heart - from start to finish. I saw the best and the kindest of humanity that day. The music began and Carol was pushed down the aisle in her wheelchair by her brother, beaming from ear to ear. She laughed and she cried from the front row.
I observed the most incredible grace and compassion from her, and towards her, from everybody. In an age where people still - sadly - see difference as the uneasy unknown, I was moved and delighted to see the way that everyone rallied all night to include Carol in everything.
Nothing was ever too much trouble. Or different. Or awkward. Could Carol see ok? Let’s get Carol on the dance floor! As the mother of a special-needs child myself, I wanted to hug them and collapse in a fit of grateful tears.
This photo is of the moment that Jonathan, in his speech, told everyone that he had always wanted a little sister - and that “Carol - I’m so glad I have you”. If ever there was a wedding moment that epitomised beauty for me, it would be this one.“ - Robyn Pattison, Celebrant & MC (NSW)
