Friday morning 10.30am: Everything is really relaxed … I’ve got a talk sorted … but I know very little about what I have to do … just go with the flow … hopefully Stephen and Brenda will end up legally married at the end of the day and won’t need to head for a registry office to make things legal!
I have to start by saying thank you to both Stephen and Brenda – perhaps particularly to Brenda. Stephen has known me since 1997, when he was 13 or 14 years old. Brenda will meet me for the first time as she comes down the aisle. That’s taking quite risk! Stephen has a good idea whether he can trust me to lead the wedding service, Brenda is having to trust Stephen’s judgement! I hope that after today, Brenda will feel that Stephen made the right call. I would not want to be the cause of any disharmony so early in their married life! It is, though, a real privilege to be asked to lead the service today!
This is the church where the ceremony is taking place:
Friday evening 9.50pm: I am writing to the sound of loud music having retired a little earlier than most of the younger generation. It was a real privilege to be able to marry Stephen and Brenda. Here are a few pictures to give you a flavour of the afternoon.
The reception was held at the Speke Resort Hotel: http://www.spekeresort.com. This is a 5 star hotel on the edge of Lake Victoria.
It is difficult to post much from the evening event as it was dark and I could not get the camera to focus properly in the dark. But here are a couple of photos.
