One From The Weekend: Katie and James Choose Petals Over Permission


Call me an old romantic but there's something quite magical about the handful of seconds when the newlyweds walk through a shower of confetti or petals. Unfortunately it's now quite a rare event as many ceremony venues and locations forbid the throwing of anything that causes a mess. Katie and James were pretty sure that a petal shower at their ceremony venue, the Killara Uniting Church, would be frowned upon but they were so keen to have this moment of fun that they decided to be a bit naughty and went ahead with it without consulting the minister. Their quite compelling reasoning was that it's better to ask for forgiveness rather than permission and surely God is forgiving, right? It's hard to argue with that theory!
