It was a lovely wedding, and I stood up to it pretty well. I’ve got a couple of pictures – my telephone pulled itself together and now holds a charge as well as anybody’s telephone. My children assure me that it will fail again soon. 

Not brilliant photography, but it's got that post-wedding happiness:

Manaba is South African. His mother and brother and a couple of friends were there -- but they had had a "paper wedding" in South Africa at Christmas time, and his family was well-represented then. He did one of the readings yesterday -- in Zulu.

I had a good time with Rachel and Ed, although I didn’t have a sock ready for her. They virtually catered for themselves, arriving Friday evening with a ready meal ready for heating. I felt feeble, but grateful. They’re safely back in south London now after an uncomfortable  --weekends are never fun – but not overly-long journey.

I’ve sort of taken today off, but hope to be back in the saddle tomorrow.

    The happy couple looks happy!

    Can you refresh - was this one of Rachel's daughters or your husband's grand-niece?

    Also, a pic of you in your new dress?

  2. How lovely that he is wearing a kilt.
    My husband wore his kilt at our daughter’s wedding. It’s so much more individual and colorful.

    What a lovely looking couple and so pleased with each other. So glad you enjoyed your venture and hope it doesn't take long to regather your energy.

  4. Congrats to the new couple. But the big question. Did you make it back in time for the finale of Bodyguard? ;0

    What a great picture. I get those dark edges like that too. Would have liked to have seen his headgear/hat, if any, but the broad smiles from both are the main thing. Chloe
