Gloria and Duncan - 10 November 2012
This was a wedding which gave hope to all who have suffered earlier in life when all the fates appeared to have been against you, robbing you of those you love. It was after such a life which left them both strong willed independent people who after realising that this relationship was capable of being something special strove to work out how to be one while still individuals. To say that they have achieved this is something special. The fact that so many members of their families and friends made the effort to be there was testament to the affection they are held in.
And forgiving and forsaking
Kissing and loving and pushing and shoving
Caring and sharing and screaming and swearing.
About being together whatever the weather
About being driven to the end of your tether
About sweetness and kindness
And wisdom - and blindness.
It's about being strong when you're feeling quite weak
It's about saying nothing when you're dying to speak
It's about being wrong, when you know you are right
It's about giving in, before there's a fight.
And for you two today it's about to begin
And for all that the two of you had to put in
Some days filled with joy, and some days with sadness
Too late you'll discover that marriage is madness!
