''Not only did the bride look beautiful - the groom looked stunning, the service was awesome, the cake (made and decorated by the groom) was superb - oh, and the Groom serenaded the bride in lieu of a wedding speech.''

|''I travelled by train and for once it was on time. The map provided by John was really good and I was outside the church by shortly after 11am. After studying the frontage and taking a couple of pictures I saw Sue walking round inside, so she let me in. Whilst at first I thought that a bit odd, the reception was in the adjoining hall, and she was still putting some finishing touches to the tables. John in the mean time was charging around trying to tie up all the loose ends to ensure the rest of the day ran smoothly.|
''The ceremony was most enjoyable with a lovely selection of hymns and
readings, all of which were signed for those unable to hear. It was a
pleasure to have a congregation that actually joined in too! This was
obviously due largely to Johns choral connections, but well aided by Jim
who joined in with enthusiasm. Such a change from the usual feeble
attempts found at most weddings when those present have never [or hardly
ever] been inside a church and certainly have no idea of the words or
tunes of the hymns being sung.|
''Whilst the register was being signed we were serenaded by Faith Hammond singing 'The Rose' - I think many of those present were 'joining in' silently - I could certainly see John doing so.
