Top notch Royal Wedding. A really wonderful blend of ceremoney, solemnity, humanity, and beauty – the Church of England at its best. Wonderful sermon, too. Congratulations to Prince Harry for managing to look informal in his dress uniform – quite an achievement, and one which helped to make the whole thing so humane and real. Congratulations to Quinney (organist) and to Johnny B, Jerome and Mark D in the choir, and all the musicians for a really wonderful service. Weird to think that those three also sang in the choir for ‘I was glad’ at my wedding… but without the trees.
Did I mention, even the trees were pretty fab? And as for the cartwheeling verger, that was just the icing on the cake. A fabulous day in every way. Much adulation to everyone involved. And every blessing to a couple who looked genuinely at ease with each other and with the wedding. May their marriage be life-giving and life-long.
