‘Seriously, I have looked forward to this day for years. Sarah makes a stunning bride and John is a good man, and I wish them every happiness for the future. If they are any bit as happy as my wife and I, then they will be very happy indeed.’
‘Marriage is an important commitment, so much so that you need a mortgage to pay for it! But it takes more than that. It needs patience and compromise, and I should know – I’ve been patiently compromising for years!’
‘Bob’s just looked at his watch, which is the signal that he needs a drink, so, ladies and gentlemen, please be upstanding. I give you… the bride and groom.’
