If you know me personally - most of you do, to some degree - you may well be aware that two of my best friends, very recently, got themselves hitched. They liked it, so they put a ring on it.
I've always been a matrimony-cynic on a personal level, but - I like seeing it for other people. I like other people who are into it, I like them having a good time on their big day. So seeing that big day actually happen was, frankly, an absolute joy.
And if someone ever tells you that you can't have a good party in a field, I come bearing news - you ruddy well can. As long as you don't drink too much of the blue stuff. I still think about the blue stuff when I close my eyes. Like, I can feel it fizzing in there somewhere. Most of it is gone but enough remains that I know it has forever...altered me in some way.
Was good to see a bunch of people that I haven't seen in a long time, too. I don't get out often. Body doesn't allow it. It was only through the sheer good grace and patience of my friends that I could even be there, so like... doubly blessed, I suppose?
I will avoid getting too sentimental. But there's not many finer people in the world. They deserve each other. Alike and different in all the right ways, like a jigsaw puzzle.
Congratulations, Mr and Mrs Lamb.
The collage of pictures below was put together by a good friend who took them at the event itself (Rachael, far left, middle pic, top row - yeah, she's a pretty good photographer). More may get appended later once I have sourced them out.
