A wedding is always something special and stirs up a lot of emotions. Choosing a wedding dress, selecting the wedding location, invitations, wedding rings, guests and everything else that contributes to the big day can be very exciting. Also, the day itself is usually full of surprises.
When Ollie and Liz got engaged, Ollie knew he wanted to surprise his future wife at their wedding. Throughout the years, she had done so much for him and had loved him unconditionally. He, too, loved her dearly and therefore wanted to let her know again on the big day.
And so Ollie started planning to give Liz the surprise of her life. For weeks he thought about it. Until one day he came up with an idea and knew what he wanted to do for her…
What was it? …
When the couple’s wedding day – after months of preparation – had finally arrived, it was time. When the two stood in front of the altar to read their wedding vows, the nervous Ollie asked Liz if she wanted to turn around.
Ever since getting together, Ollie noticed that a large part of Liz’s time and attention always went to her students. She was a dance and music teacher by profession and still took great pride in the welfare of ‘her’ children.
Liz had been in charge of the group for several years and guided her students in the development of their creativity and musical talents. And it was precisely for that reason that Ollie realised he wanted to invite the class to their wedding ceremony.
How did he do that exactly? …
When Liz saw what Ollie had arranged for her, she burst into tears. Emotional, she looks at the wonderful surprise Ollie, and her students had organised. She had not seen this coming!
In secret, her husband-to-be had gone to the school where Liz worked and had sat there with her colleagues and the children. He managed to get the group to give a brilliant performance in the church.
The children would sing the song ‘A Thousand Years’ by Christina Perri.
The church had also permitted this beautiful moment. They arranged that the children could sneak in during the service, without Liz being aware of anything. To see her reaction would be fantastic…
When the music starts to play, we suddenly hear the voices of about 25 children. Especially for their favourite teacher, they have learnt the song by heart, and they perform it in the church. And that does not just look very cute…almost all attendees had to wipe away their tears.
