This is a little way from my usual type of post, although it is music related! Catwoman and I attended the wedding of some very good friends of ours at the weekend; Pip Watts and Simon Middlecote, now known as Mr & Mrs Middlecote. The venue was Moxhull Hall in the midlands. Truly a spectacular venue, which in fact is a specialist wedding venue rather than just a hotel
Even the weather was good for us, the rain held off until the evening when we were all under cover. Prior to an evening of not blaming it on the sunshine, not blaming it on the moonlight, not blaming it on the good times but blaming it on the boogie there were some truly wonderful moments. Pip walking up the aisle looking beautiful and accompanied by some brilliant attendants in Ben as page-boy, Hannah, Millie and Jo as bridesmaids. Hannah also brought her little pink pram full of teddies. Catwoman did one of the readings in the church; John Cooper-Clarke’s “I Wanna Be Yours” truly a wonderful ode to love.
But perhaps the finest moment and indeed the funniest moment came during the speeches, which incidentally were all very good, but none could surpass Simon’s grooms speech. He finished it with a self-penned ballad affirming his love for Pip in the most humourous way imaginable. But you don’t have to take my word for it, you can see the video below. Feel free to comment too, as this has the potential to go viral!
