How death affects us :'(

The My Wedding Wish crew have been rocked by the passing of two of our grooms recently.

When DJ and Steph approached My Wedding Wish, everyone was praying for a miracle.  DJ, who was diagnosed with Acute Myloid Leukemia was accepted into a new trial in the USA, so our team gifted a beautiful ceremony at the lovely Sunshine Castle in Bli Bli.  Sadly, the first trial didn’t work but the doctors put him on an alternative treatment plan and he battled along with Steph by his side.  We were all so gutted when we heard of his passing.  Steph was able to call his family and 30 hours later, they were surrounding him and got to say goodbye.  MWW Founder, Celebrant Lynette Maguire, conducted the service to a pack room on 22 August.  There wasn’t a dry eye in the house!

Our deepest sympathies to Steph and DJs families.

DJ and Steph = married

DJ and Steph = married

 

Also farewelled on the 22nd August was Russ, a young husband to Kiri and father to two young children.  The MWW team had gifted this gorgeous couple a renewal of vows ceremony but sadly Russ passed before it could go ahead.  Too young and just so much to live for.  We’re grieving along side his family.   xxx
