The service was recorded; you can listen to it here.
We finished off with a potluck lunch, which gave everyone a bit more time to hang out and celebrate with us. It was great to have family and friends present (including some who had come all the way from Auckland!).
It was a really great time; as you will hear in the recording I was a little emotional, but that's to be expected. I think what got me the most is when Mark said, 'The time has come.' It has indeed - next Wednesday is the start of a whole new chapter in my journey.
