Chris and Melanie were married at Quy Mill on Saturday, a gloriously warm and sunny day better than most we had in July and August.
As one third of a best man my duties included minimising Chris’s alcohol intake pre-ceremony (too much booze = no wedding), herding friends and relatives for photos, and changing the batteries on fairy lights. And I was Bearer of the One Ring. I successfully cast it into Mount Doom, AKA placed it on a cushion, as the ceremony began.
The other two thirds of a best man, Chris’s brother Paul and his mate James, helped with shepherding duties and did the speeches (to which I contributed).
The day was very drunken. Everyone was there, and most had cameras. I’ve created a Flickr group for people to add their wedding photos. Just mine in the group so far, since I only created it a few minutes ago, but Louise’s photos have been uploaded.
