Monday, 29th October, 2012, on a warm and sunny afternoon, many guests gathered to witness the marriage of Christopher Cosson and Vivian Rose Ilic.
The service was held at a historic St John’s Anglican Church at Camden. The groom and his attendants – Jonathan Gules (best man), Jeremy Gordon, Jesse Ilic and Luis Ilic as groomsmen arrived well before time. The groom firstly ushered his parents to their seat and then retraced his steps to usher the bride’s mother to her seat. The bride and her attendants arrived, and all heads were turned as firstly the smiling bridesmaids, Roxanne Watkinson, Bianca Ilic, Lucinda Ilic followed by the Maid of Honour Lana Ilic slowly made their way down the aisle. Then the moment everyone was waiting for: Vivian, the bride, gracefully made her way on her father’s arm to the waiting arm of her groom. Brother Peter Lausevic officiated as minister during the wedding ceremony and asked God to bless the union for as long as both shall live.
All the guests greeted the happy couple and their parents on exiting the church. There was a lot of happy greetings as guests mixed on the lawn and took photos. A reception was held at the Skyview Reception Centre in Liverpool. A beautiful meal was served with two entrees, main course and dessert. Guests were entertained with a small number of items and special speeches from the bride and groom’s father, best man and of course, the groom – all capably coordinated by Br Martin Staudinger as the Master of Ceremonies. All too soon, the clock ticked around to a late hour and the guests started making their way home to rest before another day on the road. We trust God will protect and guide the new Mr and Mrs Cosson as they travel life’s road together into the future.
