Wedding Drama

A Show Biz wedding, Hurrah!
Both the Bride and Groom work in the theatre; Tim as an Actor and Emily as a Stage Manager so even if we should 'Beware the Ides of March', we can certainly enjoy the 4th of August.

Unsurprisingly, when it came to the vows, the Groom was word perfect and needed no prompting. Emily was also spot on although I think some of the guests may have detected a slight tremble of the bottom lip as she read her lines.

If music be the food of love, play on
The wedding ceremony and reception were held at The Newbury Manor Hotel in Berkshire which is somewhere I have performed before. The grounds are gorgeous, are bisected by the River Kennet and include a jumbo sized chess set.

Friends, Romans, countrymen, lend me your ears!
Many of the guests were of a theatrical bent and were given ample room to shine by the presence of a Message Room which reminded me a lot of the Big Brother's Diary Room (not that I watch such programmes you understand...). This was supplied by the Short Film Company; in ones, twos and sometimes threes the guests visited the room to leave messages for the Bride and Groom.

Is this a dagger which I see before me?
No, just a silver knife for the amazing looking cake from Choccywoccydoodah in Brighton.

That which we call a rose, By any other name would smell as sweet...
the Bride's bouquet and the other flower arrangements were created by local florist, Sumo.

Tim and Emily are honeymooning in Malaysia for 2 weeks... after all, All the World's a Stage...
