Missy is my mum’s youngest sister who got married to a man called Augustine, but we call him Gus for short. They had their ceremony at a church called St Michaels Catholic Church in Remuera. Because Gus is Fijian, the grooms men and page boys had to wear ‘sulus’. A ‘sulu’ is something that looks like a skirt. The bridesmaids wore long baby blue dresses.
After the ceremony, everyone drove to a place that looked very flash for the reception.
When we had eaten and the speeches had finished, my brother Jordan, cousin Stevenson and I had to perform. We had spent weeks trying to make our performance perfect, but some of the time we mucked around when we were practicing.
Anyway as soon as the song started playing, everyone started screaming like we were famous or something, but they were actually screaming because they loved the song. It was “You got me” by J.Williams and Scribe.
As soon as our item was over, my brother and I raced off to the toilets to count our money. I had $130 and Jordan had $120. Even though we wasted a lot of time mucking around during our practices, I still think that our performance was the best.
Everybody had a great time. I think my aunty looked stunning in her dress and I think that it was a fantastic wedding.
