The Wedding

Benjamin & Neolyne walked the aisle on the 9thof April 2016



There were many obstacles before the wedding day, sickness in the bride’s family which could have suspended the set date of the wedding; a near fatal accident on the bachelor’s night out when the car broke down that night, later we were informed by the mechanic that there could have been an explosion. This was scary. But God protected and He saved – it’s a God story!  And many times even during the making of the wedding, my hubby and me would get disoriented at times or get on each other’s nerves. And we are alike.


We all have these oddities of life especially nearing an important event; they are neither coincidental nor explainable other than in terms of God.


What’s more important was that the wedding was fabulous. Neo was shining!


All glory to Him who orchestrated the entire occasion where everyone had their chance to thank God for Ben & Neo and His goodness over their lives that appropriately conveyed the heartbeat of their faith journey. It left the young ones wanting more as they danced for the couple and had their clothing still in style and showed off their efficient cooling system by heavy sweating, as the music came to an end.


The defining moment was of course when Ben & Neo were pronounced as “Husband & Wife,” but for us whose spiritual waters have been tested many times, we know that the defining moment was when these two hearts were knit together in love, by His great love. It’s a God story again!


I like this quote – “Love isn’t something you find. Love is something that finds you” by Loretta Young, and that’s what happened here, Ben & Neo were found by love.




As we flag off their journey together as husband and wife, we want to say this to them:


Ben & Neo

Trust each other and be Determined to make Life happen through God’s way

Look at your Wedding Ring often and know that your Love is like that unending Circle of your Ring

Always remember that “Love covers a multitude of sins”

Your Faith in God and with each other must be Immutable

Read the Vows you made to each other often, to Remind you of your Commitment

Overcome Storms of Life by holding Hands together in prayer 

God bless you with Peace, Contentment and Joy from above



The making of the wedding of Ben & Neo! (2)


As there are only 28 more days to go for the big day (9th April 2016), I must confess that I am not afraid of the word “tension,” but I would like a type of constructive and positive kind of tension though, which is necessary for progress. So cheers to tension!!

I know that all these preparations for the wedding will conclude on the wedding day, and so preparation is exciting and when we accomplish one task there’s so much of satisfaction which comes with a sigh of “Thank goodness it’s done.” And really be thankful to God for helping it get done.

We all intend to give Ben & Neo our best shot for their wedding day. They both don’t have a “dream wedding” as such, they are quite simple people and easy going, especially Ben, and so the making of it is so cool! I think many things can be lost in the intention of creating an “ideal wedding” and of course everything will not go 100% perfect, but we all do want to see this event being successful, don’t we?

I am still in the subject of preparation and so so far we’ve been open-minded and flexible though at times some frustration keeps popping up, but then taking those times with a grain of salt and a sense of humor is an art to be learnt, and I am still working at it.

So wedding preparations so far so good:

  • Open air wedding celebrations at Arnold Lawns – And its summer!! But optimistically will be cool and green and everybody will enjoy, thanks to the beautiful weather.

  • Wedding cards – Simple and straightforward service, uploading & proof reading done fairly quickly, God bless their business.











  • Suit and Gown – No regrets, can’t wait to see them on it with all other accessories! My handsome son and gorgeous DIL


  • Date fixed for Court wedding a day before the Church wedding – No ordeal at the time of registration, thank God.
  • A potential house confirmed, close to a lot of eateries – hopefully some cooking will be done at their home.

A lot more on the list yet to be marked off, actually 28 points and 28 days to go, maybe one point a day! Good for us.
