Weddings are a marvellous excuse for a big party, and today is no exception. We have a lot of people here today – grandparents, aunts, uncles, cousins, friends… and a handful of people I recognize. Thank you all for coming.
As Father of the Bride, it is my privilege to make the first speech. And although speechmaking is not something I normally look forward to…today is a happy exception. I would like to start by saying what a real pleasure it is for Carol and I to welcome Paul’s parents, Sally and Ray… together with all the relatives and friends of both families. We really are delighted to share this very special occasion with you all.
