How we met:
We met online with our very first conversation being about maths. Absolute nerds, love gaming and karaoke (have been doing karaoke since the third date – zombie prom themed, he even bought me a corsage). Karaoke and gaming continue to be a big thing in our lives, we continue to do karaoke weekly and game together. We even had karaoke at the wedding.
We have already spent three years together, over 10% of our lives. We have had good times, and bad times, we have laughed and cried.
Your smile, your laugh, your nerdiness, all things that I never knew I needed but now I could never live without.
I call upon the persons here present to witness that I, Melanie Maclure take you Ijaz Faiz to be my lawful wedded husband.
So that for now until you’re actually old enough for those grandpa PJ’s, we will continue to be nerds together.
Melanie, you are my best friend.
When we first met three years ago, I would never had imagined the adventure that laid before us. You are the most caring, selfless person I know.
I look forward to learning with you and growing with you, even as time and life changes us both. I promise to laugh with you in good times and struggle alongside you in bad times.
With this ring, I promise to love, cherish and honour you, and be by your side through all the days and nights of our lives.
I call upon the persons here present to witness that I Ijaz Mohamed Faiz take you Melanie Lynette Maclure to be my lawful wedded wife.
Melanie, I Choose You (Pokemon reference)
In Melanie’s own words…
I’m a plus sized girl, and still felt like a princess on my day. Helena worked with me to hide what I wanted, and show off what looked good. Easy to work with, and very very talented!
