The Things You Can’t Buy

Otherwise known as our DIY wedding

Holly, Writer & Tim, Publican

Photographer: Barney Walters

Soundtrack for reading: “She Said Yes” by Mumford & Sons

We couldn’t have bought the feeling of the person you love promising everything to you.

We couldn’t have bought the real, true smiles on the faces of people dearest to us.

We couldn’t have bought a pact with the weather to stop it from raining.

Nor could we have bought the rays of sunshine that came afterwards to light up our photographs.

We couldn’t have bought the generosity of our guests, at least not that done with real affection.

We couldn’t have bought the shooting star we saw over the lake in that private five minutes before our first dance.

We couldn’t have bought our way out of the hangover the next morning.

You can’t buy weddings. You have to make them.
