The Wedding!

Hundreds of thousands of words have been used to describe the event of the year (so far!), and hundreds of thousands more will be spoken and read about in the days, weeks, months to come.

How does one compare with the journalists and photographers from all around the world?  I'm not going to try.  Other than to say - the wedding was refined, dignified, simple and elegant.  The groom, the bride, the dress, the actual ceremony (how beautifully old-fashioned it was with only the word "cherish" cast aside in preference to something along the lines of "caring" - which is very much the same don't you think?)  The delicate little flower girls and the handsome little page boys, all so well behaved.  The BBC telecast was first class (as one would expect) with none of the "ocker" nonsense that many of the Australian commentators came across with - no, I'm not being overly critical, but .....)

I watched the event on television and then walked in to my computer and found (literally within seconds) photographs and the ceremony "ver batim" on the internet - modern technology, what can you say?   So here are a couple of photographs from the Telegraph, UK - full copyright to them, of course.

We wish them much happiness and joy - they certainly deserve it.
