This wedding featured what is fast becoming my annual boat trip on the river Thames. Lucy had been a bridesmaid at Sarah & Morgan’s wedding just down the road near Henley in 2009, and it was good to be working with familiar faces.
Following preparations (and great bacon sandwiches) at Lucy’s parents’ home we all headed into the nearby village of Hambleden to meet up with Evan and his kilted ushers (Welsh ones these, kilt fans) at St Mary the Virgin church. Time for some mingling and a spot of confetti throwing, then everyone followed the bride and groom to a secret location where the surprise mode of transport awaited.
An hour or so floating up and down the river came to an end at the mooring at the end of Lucy’s parents’ garden. It had been cleaned of silt from years of flooding and was looking very grand for the occasion. Time for another drink or two, then it was into the marquee for the usual meal, speeches and haka. Yes, big rugby fans these Welsh folk.
