Rebecca and Daniel’s Sergeants Mess wedding wedding began with a traditional Jewish ceremony at The Great Synagogue, the oldest and grandest Synagogue in Sydney.
I witnessed the Rabbi deliver the most beautiful ceremony, rich with personal stories and an understanding of each of us individually. Of course, as with all Jewish weddings, it was completed with the groom stamping on a glass and shouting “mazaltov!”.
I will tell you the most memorable moments of the morning was the Bedeken. This is the veiling of the Bride before the ceremony, witnessed by the couple’s closest family and friends. “It was the first time we had seen or spoken to each other in four days. Daniel walked towards me with the Rabbi, our fathers, the groomsman and friends in tow whilst everyone was singing and clapping to traditional Jewish music. It was exciting and overwhelmingly emotional.”
The couple’s Special Day ended with a relaxed and whimsical reception at Sergeants Mess, full of crazy hora dancing and love as they celebrated well into the night with their family and friends.
Above all, it was a celebration that represented the couple perfectly and illustrated their love of family, friends and each other. This wedding has also been featured on Wedded Wonderland so you can view more of it here.
