Message from The Mother of the Bride
Naomi & Errol
A marriage is a life time of commitment. Laugh together, cry together and travel but always communicate. That’s the strength of a good relationship and the recipe for a successful marriage.
I am a very happy mother. I’m so glad that you both found each other and have made the decision to commit to a lifetime filled with adventures and building sweet memories.
I wish you both years of happiness, joy and laughter on your wedding day and in the years ahead.
Mother of the bride xx

Message from Nyisha
After so much waiting and anticipating
Two hearts unite for a single beating
Your love is a love that never fails and perseveres
It has been a joy to see you both get to know each other over the years
Clearly both of your spirits have reached a place of peace beyond all understanding
Most people yearn for the contentment that comes naturally to your relationship
May you continue to have love, joy, peace and contentment!
From your sister Nyisha
Message from Sim
The only wish I had for my sister was that she would meet someone who…
Loved her unconditionally
Valued her commitment to her family and friends
Respected her body, mind and spirit
Understands the powerful strong black woman that she is
Fills her heart with laughter and joy
Comforts her in times of need
There is no-one more suitable than Errol to take the role of her soul-mate and husband. I love you like a brother and so pleased that you are a part of our family. I wish you both nothing but the very best on your journey to becoming husband and wife and beyond. Take care, love and continue to value each other.
Lots of love always,
Message from Reggie
Words can't express how happy I am for the two of you on your wedding day.
I truly believe that life is about finding someone you absolutely can't live without.
I knew when I first met you both that you two had obtained that.
Hold on and cherish each other, cause the kind of love you have is rare.
I'm so glad to call you my family, and I wish you both a long and blessed future together.
Message from Uncle Tony Jenkins
On the 1st June 1981 this little princess arrived and it didn't take me long to discover how special you were.
I have been looking forward to your big day for a long time and am honoured to give you away........Errol, what a lucky guy.......
Wishing you a lifetime of love and happiness and best wishes on your wonderful journey as you build your new lives together.

Message from Siobhan & Olrick
To Errie Perrie and Nai Nai,
Wow! The time is fast approaching but in real time it’s been a long time coming! 😏😊😉 Olrick and I just want you to know that we love you both dearly and will continue to keep you in our hearts and prayers as you embark on this journey of marriage- because there most certainly is a difference. I know that there is a lot of cynicism about marriage and it’s value, about the roles of a husband and a wife and the reason why they enter into a contractual agreement.
However, the bible says...“One shall chase a thousand- but two shall put ten thousand to flight” and that is because of the power of agreement. A husband and wife carry the responsibility of having each other’s back, and that can often be seen with patience and kindness, not being envious or boastful or rude or selfish. This is largely achieved by honouring one another and remaining humble whilst encouraging each other to go for what seems impossible and see how God makes all things possible.
We pray that both of you will exceed your expectations and go on to achieve your hearts desires, both individually and collectively. We will continue to keep you in our prayers.
God’s love and ours.
Siobhan and Olrick

Message from Trisha
Naomi and Errol
My first real memory of you as a couple was at my Uncle Wayne's wedding.
It was coming to the end of the reception and you were both clearing tables and cleaning up while quite a few people were lounging around...me included!
It was watching you complete this simple, selfless and loving task that made me think WOW! Nai has really found her life partner. The one that when the music stops, the lights come on and everyone has gone home that person is by your side when you need them most doing what needs to get done.
There are a few moments in life that when they come to fruition you know without a shadow of doubt that the Kingdom of Heaven is rejoicing.
That's how I felt when I heard the news of your engagement, two beautiful and selfless spirits coming together as one.
I'm so happy for the both of you.
Enjoy the moment, be in the moment, talk things through and in all things give thanks.
Message from Sasha, Michael & Ziah Anne

May God bless your love.

Message from Michele Perry
Then Almitra spoke again and said, And what of Marriage, master?
And he answered saying: You were born together, and together you shall be for evermore. You shall be together when the white wings of death scatter your days.
Aye, you shall be together even in the silent memory of God. But let there be spaces in your togetherness. And let the winds of the heavens dance between you.
Love one another, but make not a bond of love: Let it rather be a moving sea between the shores of your souls. Fill each other’s cup but drink not from one cup. Give one another of your bread but eat not from the same loaf.
Sing and dance together and be joyous, but let each one of you be alone. Even as the strings of a lute are alone though they quiver with the same music. Give your hearts, but not into each other’s keeping. For only the hand of Life can contain your hearts. And stand together yet not too near each together:
For the pillars of the temple stand apart,
And the oak tree and the cypress grow not in each other’s shadow.
Dear Naomi and Errol marriage is not about 50:50 it's about 100:100 your growth as a couple is the sum of your individual growth so continue to respect each other and revel in the glory of each others shine because that's where the love resides... Michele Perry xx
