Thank goodness for some hot sun for the bride today. The church was packed and I sat outside waiting for her to walk from the lych gate. The bells rang out and several young people greeted me enthusiastically. In at least one case I remembered that I had married the young man three years ago! It was a proper St mawes wedding with masses of the locals appearing looking very smart. The bride arrived in an open Bentley driven by one of the village men equipped in his morning suit for the occasion. Even the tide was in! Perfect!
