Still getting through last years weddings on the blog. Nearly there now though, just one more after this cracker with Alex and Paul at Muncaster Castle.
Just before New Year I headed down to Cumbria for Alex and Paul’s intimate wee wedding at Muncaster. It’s a beautiful venue for a wedding. A real gem in the otherwise pretty gloomy west Cumbrian landscape. Just a few miles from Sellafield but the geiger counter app on my phone suggested no real danger so I removed my home-made tin foil cod-piece and got on with the job.
I pause at this point to talk about the speeches.
Paul is profoundly deaf. Bear that in mind and think about how nerve racking it is to speak in front of a crowd if you have full hearing. Now you will understand why almost everyone in the room was blubbing when he spoke about his love for Alex.
Then is brother stood and launched into a quite hilarious character assassination.
