On weddings

“There is something sacred about sharing your wedding day with your friends and family. Only later when I attended a friend’s wedding on my own, freshly single, did I realise this. It struck me as we all surrounded the newly wed couple and released butterflies in the air. You become a witness to a couple’s commitment to each other. You become a person who can remind them of that commitment when times are rough. We could have done with a whole lot more witnesses.”
