Blog: Wedding drama

Catherine Sleep | 8 September 2003

Having very recently tied the knot myself, I am well tuned-in to wedding dramas and crises, but yesterday’s news upped the ante. My oldest friend Gillian is getting married this coming Saturday, and after the usual 18 months or so of detailed planning, all that was left for her to do was to get lots of sleep and hope for sunshine. Or so she thought.

Yesterday changed all that – the hotel in which their wedding reception was to be held went up in flames, and will not reopen for some time. Given that hotels get booked up for weddings months and sometimes years in advance in Plymouth, there is little chance of them finding a substitute at such short notice.

Will it be fish and chips on Plymouth Hoe, or a bun fight in the church hall? Will we see a display of flexibility and generosity on the part of some local establishment that helps out, or will all the guests rally round with offers of quiche and currant buns? I have no doubt that a blitz spirit will prevail and it will be a fantastic wedding. Keep your fingers crossed for a sunny day, eh?
