What's The Story

On the 12th October 1995 I made the longest most nerve wracking walk I had ever made. My Dad tried to keep things light by joking about someone's hat looking like a dead cat on her head and how he thought the vicar was drunk (he was by the way). I felt the eyes of 300 hundred people fall upon me and for a split second wanted to break out into "Dancing Queen" by Abba and dance my way up the isle.

I worried about what the man at the end might think (not the vicar) and wondered if he would cry too when we finally saw each other (he did by the way). The ceremony passed in a haze of crying and laughter (mainly at the vicar who couldn't get his words out due to the copious amounts of alcohol he had consumed). And then.......................................................................................I became we (cheesy I know but totally necessary). We couldn't wait to get all the handshakes, kissing and squeezing of cheeks (on our faces not bottoms) out of the way and have a minute or two alone.

This photo was taken just as we were leaving to go to our reception and was very spur of the moment as our photographer "Bert" just shouted "STOP........LOOK AT ME", we both did as we were told and stopped then turned our heads in a very sort of Britain's Next Top Model absolutely had no training kind of way.

We have been married for 17 years last Saturday and although its been tough at times we have made it. Happy Anniversary Mr DG (he really does need a medal.......................or a stiff drink).
