This lovely wedding was attended by many members of the congregation.
Before the service, a Smudging Ceremony was held outside. Joanna, who is of an Indigenous background , passed the bowl with the burning sweet grass to people in a circle who then drew the smoke towards them with their hands- head, mouth, ears, heart and body.
The wedding included guitar and fiddle music, and a special treat of Joanna singing some songs with her mother Brenda!
Following the service, everyone was invited back to the hall for cake.
