Bev and Michael’s wedding day is a story of the fine things in life – a certain sparkle in the eye, a keen sense of humour, belly-aching laughter, softly coloured flowers, fitted suits, delicate lace over a swooping dress, personalised stationary, a heated fluffy blanket and an immensely strong connection between two people.
On a particularly sunny Saturday in April I was walking down a street in Wandsworth, on my way to Bev and Michael’s flat. With the bright light shining through pink cherry blossoms and the smell of Spring in the air I knew it would be a great day in London. And it was. A ceremony at Christ’s Chapel followed by a reception at Dulwich College, with all their friends and families sipping champagne on that lush Spring-coloured bright green grass. Speeches and dancing and cheese and grapes in between 400 year old pillars and a penguin in a glass case.
After the sun had set and before I headed home I took a deep breath of that cool night air, infused with the promise of a Summer to come and I knew I was right. A great day indeed and the night had only just begun. All my best to the two of you – what a wonderful way to start a life together. A life full of fine things.
