Couple ties knot before God and families

They previously worked together but now Darren and Tracey Magele are bonded for life in holy matrimony.

 They tied the knot at Our Lady of Mount Carmel Parish, Palisi on Saturday morning in front of families and friends.

Father Spa Silva led the church service and advised the couple that married life is not easy.

“God created us all, know that He is a loving God and he has prepared everything for us,” he said.

Fr. Silva added that the choice to get married falls on the couple and have the freedom to choose who they marry.

“God gave us the free will to make decisions. Some families force the couples to marry because the girl has gotten pregnant but it is not their will it’s the families will.

“Family cannot dictate the will of the couples that choose to get married or not. Using force to obtain marriage is not right.

“If the knot tied between couples is strong it can withstand the challenges that will come.”

He also added that, “we pray for Mr. and Mrs. Magele’s decision, may this day serve to tie the knot between them which God has united and let no one break.”

Mrs. Magele was overwhelmed with joy and love on her wedding day.

“Our love story began when we first at Tanoa Hotel while working there three years ago. 

“God made this happen and that is why our love is founded on God. I would like to thank both our families and especially to my Tanoa family.

“I never expected to have this day and turn out to be so beautiful.”

She also said that her husband has turned her life into something beautiful.

“We feel like one whole family but most importantly he is a blessing to my life.

“He has also challenged me to be a better person.”

Mr. Magele said that he vowed to be faithful in good times and in bad and in sickness and in health to his wife.

“I love her with all my heart and I am prepared to share my life with her and our children which I adore so much.

“Our wedding day has made me feel complete and ready for what life has in store for us.”
