We’re up to Commitment! Yay! This was THE most fun to write. I spent the entire time grinning and absolutely loved planning this wedding with David and Katrina.
My favourite moment most definitely has to be when it all comes together on the boat (I’m quite partial to the wedding dress change room scene as well! 😉 )
Here it is –
By the time we get into the city and park the car, it’s almost 7pm, which is when we’re supposed to board the boat. We all walk as quickly as three women in heels can, and reach the small cruise boat that looks beautifully decorated, even from where we stand on the wharf.
We walk up the ramp leading from the wharf onto the boat and enter what appears to be a reception hall or dining room. I’m surprised when I look around and see… no one.
“I thought we were running late? Where are all the people?” I ask. It was that moment that the well-known notes of Bruno Mars’ song Marry You starts to play. “What the hell?” I mutter, looking around the grandly decorated dining room. My eyes land on the tall man standing at the doors leading out to the deck at the bow of the boat. “David?! You’re not in Melbourne? What…? Does this mean? Oh my god! Is it today? We’re getting married today?!” I’m squealing and bouncing up as I watch him grin and nod. I rush over to him and throw my arms around his neck, raining a shower of kisses over his face out of my excitement.
“I can’t believe it, how did you do all of this? This is amazing!” I gasp. It’s then that I notice that his eyes are closed. “What are you doing? Open your eyes,” I laugh.
“I can’t see you before the wedding,” he smiles, keeping his eyes firmly closed. “It’s bad luck.”
“David. Don’t go all traditional on me now. You chose the dress. I don’t think that stuff matters anymore.”
“No, I didn’t choose the dress. Well, not technically anyway. I chose the style and our mothers decided on the final one.”
Noticing movement over his shoulder, I see his mother and her partner standing and smiling, watching us excitedly. Her hands are clasped in front of her like she’s praying and she has tears in her eyes.
“Surprise!” she says to me when our eyes meet.
I move over to hug her and then rush around the room, hugging everyone. I’m jumping like an excited school girl. I can’t believe this is finally happening!
When I finish attacking everyone with my excitement I return to David. “So what do we do now?”
“Now we get ready. You have one hour.”
