Annika & Trevor


Annika & Trevor were blessed with another amazingly beautiful day at the Castle in the Clouds. Wild flowers, a Guinness toast, cigars on the patio, cupcakes, a special secret, and poems made this day incredibly special. I was introduced to the concept of "Anam 'Cara" and I'll quote a part of their program:

Anam 'Cara...In the Celtic tradition, there is a beautiful understanding of love and friendship. One of the fascinating ideas here is the idea of soul-love; the old gaelic term for this is Anam 'Cara. Anam is the Gaelic word for soul and 'Cara is the word for friend. So Anam 'Cara in the Celtic world was the "Soul Friend." - John O'Donohue.

Congratulations Mr. & Mrs. Trevor Hughes!
"May you always be in the gentle nest of belonging with your Anam 'Cara."
