Don’t you love a good wedding?

It’s a wedding just like any other. Squishing the train into the car, forgetting to bring a steam spray for the Maid of Honour’s dress, fidgeting page boys, hair dramas for the groom (was that the beginning of a comb-over, William?) There’s the cousin eating sweets while the choir is singing, Grandma looking stern, Grandad looking dyspeptic. Mother of the Bride looking elegant and proud, a little tearful, Father of the Groom looking elegant and proud, a little tearful. Some peculiar fashion choices, fabulous hats, women walking like carthorses in heels they can’t handle.

No doubt later, beyond the reach of the long lenses, the Father of the Bride will make a (slightly drunken) speech, Grandma and Grandad will dance the funky chicken, there’ll be a scuffle in the hallway and, quietly, a couple will have a hissing row. Hopefully, the Bride and Groom will be oblivious, carried forward in a bubble of their own making as they take to the dance floor for the first time as husband and wife.

Oh yes, discount the soaring Abbey with the trees sprouting from the pews, the Heads of State, Kings and Queens and cheering crowds and it’s a wedding like any other: full of hope and joy and love. Good luck to them (and thanks for the extra day off, Ma’am)
