Pritti and Jonnie got married !
We went up to Stockport, which is up near Manchester for the wedding.

It was a near perfect weekend,
we dodged the Friday evening traffic jams and were soon driving through the Peak district on a beautiful summer evening ( - we even stopped for a pint )  and arrived in time to meet Elvis at our hotel, and then on to lovely parties with both of the families. Paddy and I got back to the hotel too late for the residents bar - which was probably a very good thing.

Morning came and two likely lads appeared outside the Stockport Town Hall, but their elephant was no where to be seen...

The wedding ceremony was much more enjoyable than the western equivalent. It made marriage seem like a potentially happy institution.

Paddy looking for a spare bottle of wine ?
