28 years ago today!

Well folks I can confidently say that 28 years ago today the weather was worse than it is today. I remember on that day an hour before our wedding I was shovelling snow off the church steps and my wife to be arrived at the church in jeans and Wellington boots.
She cause the organist some difficulty because she came into church by a different route and he ended up playing bits of the wedding march he had never seen before.
It was a great day though and around 100 people turned out so it was quite pleasing given the weather.
This morning is very reminiscent!!

Congratulations to you both. I assume that your wife is a saint? ;o)

Thank you Richard - there is no question at all about her being a saint - 28 years married to me she needs to be.

Congratulations. But why marry in January!?

The plan was to marry in June of that year near to my birthday but my sister and brother in law decided to emigrate to Australia and they were going in February so we either didn't have them at the wedding or move it forward and that was how it ended up in January. Our honeymoon in Plymouth was delayed by three days due to the weather.

Congrats FT. Some friends of ours married on boxing day about 50yrs ago and I can remember well how cold it was for all of us. It's a good way though to start married life with adversity it prepares you for the future.
