Apart from being incurably curious, I am also an incurable romantic, (we all have our failings don’t we.... Just look at my profile inworld and you will see what I mean.) So it was with the utmost joy that I attended a marriage renewal service of note on Sunday 24th August.
The beautiful couple that are Blake Hambleton and Shannon Bramlington (Mr and Mrs Hambleton), owners of Sweethearts Jazz and accompanying businesses, have been married for five years and they decided to share their love with those that make their group the most romantic group in SL, their members and friends and reinforce their commitment to one another.
“I've never had a moment's doubt. I love you. I believe in you completely. You are my dearest one. My reason for life.” By Ian McEwan from Atonement. I believe this quote encompasses all that Blake went to great lengths to share with us about how he feels for Shannon. Those of us present at the ceremony were left in no doubt that he truly loves his beloved Shannon.
In reply Shannon said in her vows “I have seen the best of you and the worst of you, and I choose both. Thank you for loving me this long, and for keeping your promises. After all these years, I'm still so very proud to call you my husband. As we continue on in our promise of forever, I promise you'll always be my best friend, my lover, my rock and my soft place to land.”
It makes my heart sing to see that romance is far from dead both in real life and Second Life. So without further ado, let me take this opportunity to once more wish you both much happiness in your lives, both RL and SL and also for the continued success of Sweethearts Jazz, so that others like you may find that special someone.
"In vain I have struggled. It will not do. My feelings will not be repressed. You must allow me to tell you how ardently I admire and love you." From Pride and Prejudice by Jane Austen
