Where to even start with this one…?

You can come on up but it’s a little manic…

was what Miriam said to me when I called her from the front desk of Selsdon Park Hotel where she was getting ready.  And she wasn’t wrong.  Except maybe about the “little” bit.

To be honest, I’ve seen worse.  In fact, far worse.  Everybody was in the right place, things were getting down and most importantly there was lots of laughter.  I knew it was going to be a great day.

Over at the church of St Francis of Assisi in West Wickham, the guys were chilling out.

It would be uncharitable of me to explain quite why best man Gilbert was revising his speech.  Or how they found time to nip to the coffee shop.  After all, it’s a bride’s prerogative to be a little late…

And here they all are – ready for the ceremony!

Just as well, because a few minutes later it was time for Miriam to walk down the aisle and marry Michael.

After this, well the day was just a blur.  But we found a little time to stop at a band stand that Michael had arranged to be open for us.

And this time I’m not kidding when I say “little”.  My camera timed it at 9 minutes from leaving the car to getting back in…

And then….off to Langley Park Golf Club for the reception.  Which looked beautiful.

Which is just as well because everybody was ready.

And the after dinner speeches had everybody in stitches.

Before it was time for the first dance and for me to leave.
