Ellissa and Mark's Special Memory:
Some would say we are very lucky to be reminded of our ceremony and vows on such a regular basis as every other weekend! To quote a section out of our vows:
Celebrant: 'Ladies and Gentlemen, we will be interrupting the ceremony for a moment as Mark and Liss have one or two last minute questions that they need to clarify with one another... Liss, Mark has asked me to ask some very important questions... Will you Liss, stop moving Mark's mess which he strategically leaves laying on the floor next to his bed for a reason? Also, he's asked if you could ask him all your questions before the footy or the cricket starts and... drive him to the golf course on request?'
Liss: 'I will Mark. Do you promise to update Liss's Louis Vuitton handbags and Chanel products on a regular basis and Sleep on the couch after you've had beers?'
Mark: 'I will. I guess we both are blessed with a special memory. One - Mark has a cracking good wife to get up at an unreasonable hour on a Sunday morning and drive him to Golf, and for me it is like every day is our wedding day. :) '
