‘There is great teamwork in everything they do. Whether it’s redecorating the bathroom or choosing a honeymoon, they are able to work together at close quarters for hours on end without the sign of irritation or tension…’

‘Helen and I knew right from the outset that these two would make a great team and we’ve been proved right. They work hard for each other and don’t seem to grumble or moan about anything – a sign of a winning team. This is, of course, a whole new concept to Gerry, him being a Tottenham fan and all…’

‘Bobby and Belinda make a perfect team. They always put each other first, and never let other worries get in the way of their relationship. When one of them has a success, the other is there to celebrate. And when one of them is down, the other is there to comfort them. I’m constantly amazed by their closeness and real, heartfelt intimacy.’

By the groom

‘What I really love about my relationship with Laura is that we make a really great team. We trust and support one another, and we each know that, come what may, the we will be there for each other. I know that marriage is not all fun and laughter like today, but I know too that my wife and I have the strength to deal with any difficulties that life may throw at us.’

By the best man

‘I’m sure that Rob and Anna are going to make a great team. Rob has always been good at team sports. I remember a time at school when they were asking for volunteers for the hockey team. We all played football, but Rob insisted he wanted to play hockey. He volunteered immediately and went on to be the hero of the side. He did admit to me recently, though, that the only reason why he volunteered was that he thought hockey was a mixed sport at our school.’

‘Derek and Ellie will make a great team, I’m sure. Derek’s been involved in team sports since school. He was linesman for the footie team, scorer for the cricket team and sponge man and physio for the chess team…’

By the bride

‘There is no ‘I’ in the word team, as Adrian is so fond of reminding me. However, as I often reply: ‘there is a ‘you’ in the word drunk!’

‘I’ve never really been much of team sports person myself, but since I’ve met Chris I can see the benefits. We totally rely on each other and almost second-guess what the other is thinking. We have the same goals and help each other achieve them. We don’t squabble when the chips are down and there are no recriminations if things don’t go the way we planned them.’

By the chief bridesmaid

‘Approach your marriage with the same team spirit you’ve shown in all of the things we’ve done together, Pam, and you won’t go far wrong. Ever since I’ve known you you’ve been a team player, always putting the team first, whether it was the Guides, netball or the drinking team at college. Your selflessness and determination, I’m sure, are what attracted Jonathan to you… That and the fact that you can drink most rugby players under the table…’
