Wed­ding whirl: Garth Wil­liamson holds his new bride Monique in the air with his feet as the new­ly­weds per­form a trapeze act af­ter ex­chang­ing vows at their garden wed­ding in Jan­uary. Shar­ing some­thing unique with your new hus­band or wife is a spe­cial moment on a wed­ding day and for the cou­ple, mar­ried at the Par­sons’ prop­erty in Waik­erik­eri, that moment was per­form­ing a trapeze act for their first dance. Garth, orig­i­nally from Alexan­dra but liv­ing in Welling­ton, said the cou­ple started trapeze as a hobby and de­cided to per­form it on their spe­cial day ‘‘be­cause it was us’’. Monique, orig­i­nally from Aus­tralia, said the pair had been tak­ing part in dou­ble trapeze for about a year. ‘‘There is just some­thing spe­cial about be­ing in the air to­gether and re­ly­ing on your part­ner to catch up,’’ she said.
