The Vows

Can you believe I forgot to put our vows in that monster post??

The Vows

My baby, I love you the bestest (Tahu)/mostest (Jo)

No one is perfect, but with all of your strengths and weaknesses, and with all of mine, together we ARE perfect.
Together we are better than we could ever hope to be alone.
You will ALWAYS be the best part of my day
and I want with all my heart, to be the best person I can be for you.

On this special day, I give to you in the presence of God and those we love,
my promise to listen to you with compassion and understanding
and encourage you to be who you are and to achieve all of your goals.
I will help you when you need it, and step aside when you don't.
I promise to love you without reservation,
when life seems easy and when it seems hard,
To honour and respect you,
to comfort and support you each and every day,
to laugh with you and cry with you,
to always be open and honest with you.
I will remain faithful to you and our vows
for better or for worse,
for richer or for poorer
in times of sickness and in health
As long as we both shall live.

Thank you so much lovely Jo for your amazing wedding day post and for these beautiful vows. We are so sad we missed your day but I can read your post, close my eyes and imagine it all - and I'm hoping one of these days there will be a Merchants album we can buy so we can absorb the sounds too!

Much love from Sharon, Mark and Bella Boo
