What is a wedding? The act of going through the process to become married. Today is an important day for one very high profile couple. Their wedding has been anticipated for years. Everything about their wedding was kept secret until today when all the world would see.
The invitees include royalty, leaders of countries and, most importantly, their family and friends. Everyone who watched the live telecast spotted many dignitaries and also celebrities.
The whole event was a big party and also an event to unite many people. Watchers outside the church and palace came from far and wide. Some even turned up a few days before the wedding to book the most suitable spot to watch for the wedded couple.
The wedding was planned by a battalion of people, guarding every single detail and ensuring safety for the couple, their family and friends, and also all the dignitaries.
Everyone awaited for the event to begin. Everyone wanted a look at the wedding gown. Everyone wanted to look at the bride and groom. Everyone wanted to have a piece of them if possible.
The wedding was held at the Westminster Abbey. The building was majestic. The whole place was made for a wedding to remember. The choir boys were angelic. The music made one feel like floating on air.
They were married. They became man and wife - or in this case, prince and princess and Duke and Duchess of Cambridge.
They represented a bridge between the "old" royals, and the young generation. They were a beautiful and handsome couple. Life will never be the same for the bride ever again, not only because she is now married, but because of whom she married and therefore, whom she became.
As the whole world (almost) watched the wedding, many remembered another wedding which happened in 1981 which ended in a divorce and then death. And so everyone wishes this couple something much better and everlasting for this new couple.
And so, the fairy tale became a reality. A wedding, a marriage. We wish you both a wonderful start to a wonderful life together. May your love for each other and the faith you have for each other bring you to a life that is fulfilling for you and your family. May you remember the vow you made and the blessings you received.
There is no "happily ever after" in real life. What has happened does not denote the end of a story, but the beginning of one. May this beautiful beginning be reflective of the years to come.
I hope all who attend your wedding will be able to wish you both a happy anniversary 10 20 30 40 years from now. Your royal highnesses Prince William and Princess Catherine ... have a happy married life.
