A wedding!

With the exception of the odd fight, few events bring people together more than a wedding, and few people are more proud than the bride's father!

This past weekend it was my turn, when my beautiful daughter married her wonderful fiancee Ben. We had three days of perfect weather, and the venue and catering couldn't have been better.

We started on Friday with a golf match for 21 of the guests, including myself, which gave me the opportunity to meet many new acquaintances and make many life-time friends.
The wedding on the Saturday went without a hitch with a big red bus ferrying guests from the hotel to the wedding venue, a Rolls Royce and big Jaguar taking my daughter, the bridesmaids and myself, and a fleet of taxis taking everyone back to the hotel at the end of the evening. Sunday was a day for close family to get together and compare notes and photos.

We couldn't have asked for a better weekend, of son-in-law.

I've attached some photos .

Please wish the happy pair happiness!


  1. How lovely!! thanks for sharing this..doesn't she look beautiful! I am so glad the day went well for you all! Bet you did a lovely speech!

    1. Many thanks, Carol. She was and remains beautiful. Everything went superbly, including the speech by the Father of the Bride! The bride and groom are flying off on their 2 1/2 week honeymoon in about an hour's time. Lucky things, but they deserve it!

  2. I'm so glad it went well, Richard. Everything looks perfect and your daughter is beautiful. Many congratulations to her and her husband and I hope they have a marvellous honeymoon. All the best to a lovely family.

    1. Hi Teresa. Many thanks.
      Everything was perfect and Sarah looked wonderful. Katie, her chief bridesmaid was brilliant and the supporting ushers (my son was one) were great. The speeches were witty (including mine!) and I'd love to do the whople thing again.
      Sarah and Ben are now in Bali for 2 weeks before spending 3 to 4 days in Singapore. Lucky things!
