Four years ago, Mr David Weeks and I became... well... Husband-and-Husband here's what happened as recorded on The Day!
(Glad to say I've lost some weight since then!)
What a day!
We turned up at Lambeth's temporary Register
Office this morning intending to give notice that we we wanted to
'convert' our decade-old 'Civil Partnership' status to 'Marriage' only
to find that it was not a future event, but one that happened right there and then!
So, dressed somewhat casually for Our Big Day (as you can see!) we did the deed and – a tad sooner than we'd quite expected – were duly 'converted'!
By a very happy happenstance the Registrar was the same woman who officiated at our Civil Partnership ceremony back in 2007!
Then arriving home – still trying out the sound of "husband" in relation
to one another – we bumped
into our local vicar (we live next door to a church, you know) who, on
hearing the news, instantly laid on an extempore Wedding Breakfast for
us in the vicarage –– Gin & Tonics served with hot sausage rolls and
tomato sauce dip!!
You know, sometimes, Life just seems to plan itself!
