Today's big joy was to officiate at a wedding in Saint Simon's ... the church had been vacant when the Schedule was obtained so I was the named officiant ... since then there's been a rector appointed and it was good to share the service with Raymond.

... and times of laughter too.
It was a happy occasion ...
... and no doubt the young couple will remember that day for the rest of their lives.
