11 April 2016
On April 11th 2016, guests from the USA, Melbourne, Sydney, Queensland and Perth gathered together at the beautiful Golden Valley Tree Farm situated in Balingup, Western Australia, to witness the marriage of Emily Newman and Jonathan Brown.
Rain had been forecasted for the day, and sure enough everyone woke up to a very wet morning. We were all praying hard as preparations went on as planned.
Thankfully there was a large gazebo at the ceremony location, which sheltered the waiting guests while the heavens unloaded the last big downpour for the day.
At 1:00pm when the ceremony was due to commence, the rain ceased and the wedding carried on as planned. It was a beautiful witness of God’s power and love to all those that attended.
The ceremony was held under two massive acorn trees, and Br. Paul Chapman conducted the marriage service. During the signing of the papers, Hayden Wiseman serenaded us with a beautiful gospel song.
After greeting everyone, the bridal party then went off for their photographs, while the guests headed back to Donnybrook Town Hall.
Interesting items entertained the guests throughout the reception and were enjoyed by all who attended.
It was truly a very happy occasion with a lot of love put into the preparation that went into action on the day; and despite the rain which upset things to a degree, it actually added some fibre to the day.
May the Lord bless this newly married couple as they begin a new journey in life together.

We wish extend our congratulations to Emily and Jonathan Brown on their wedding! May Jesus be always the centre of your union!
“And above all these things put on charity, which is the bond of perfectness. And let the peace of God rule in your hearts, to the which also ye are called in one body; and be ye thankful. Let the word of Christ dwell in you richly in all wisdom; teaching and admonishing one another in psalms and hymns and spiritual songs, singing with grace in your hearts to the Lord. And whatsoever ye do in word or deed, do all in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God and the Father by him. Wives, submit yourselves unto your own husbands, as it is fit in the Lord. Husbands, love your wives, and be not bitter against them.” Colossians 3:14-19.
