Ok cheesy title 😂 but anything but a cheesy wedding day for Matt and Jean on May 4th this year, yes Star wars day! We met Matt and Jean at a wedding a couple of years ago, you might remember I raved about that wedding back then, not just because it was a lovely day at Rownhams House but because of the people. They were all Foster parents and the children were mostly fostered. Not only a humbling experience but for me a life changing one too. I met this little lad Lucien, He suffered from several nasty life changing things including cerebral palsy 🙁 but he was the most energetic happy and well behaved little boy I have seen in a long time. It’s true to say I am a people person but this little lad melted my heart, I would have taken him home with me and I feel the same way 2 years on. 🙂
Lucien is Matt and Jeans, little lad……. See my rambling story was going somewhere.
Matt and Jean chose our small day 4-hour package, they were tying the knot at Southampton Registry office and then heading off in a vintage VW camper “Nellie” to the New Forest Pub which is where the party was going to happen. After a short but lovely ceremony we all headed off to the New Forest pub in convoy, Once there we headed into the gardens for some sunshine and enjoyed an absolutely wonderful afternoon watching the children laugh and enjoy. Once again my heartstrings were tugged. Amazing to see so many children that started life in such a shitty way (sorry, not sorry) having just the most amazing day and life. There are a couple that deserves a proper mention. My little man Lucien, OMG what a complete gorgeous dude, he has grown into a superb little man and walks and gets around just like everyone else now, That’s a Big deal if you saw him a couple years ago. And Jimma, Again such a massive improvement and so blooming confident too, Matt and Jean, Tracey and Simon you should be so very proud.
After a couple hours on the lawns we came in for the speech, just one, heartfelt and proper just like speeches should be, The kids started dancing and singing haha and the adults took advantage of the setting sun and the New Forest Pub’s blankets too whilst they waited for the BBQ to be served.
Sue and I headed home. Although a short wedding for us, it was again a very special day filled with awe-inspiring people and I feel richer for having met them. I absolutely love what I do but as it goes it pales compared to what some people do in the “goodness stakes”
TOP wedding and TOP people, thank you, Matt and Jean, for letting us be part of your journey. Much love to you and your wonderful children.
May the force be with you X
