This was a most unusual occurrence, a genuine walk-in wedding. I was at home having my new kitchen cupboards fitted, when I got the call around noon from the Reef Resort in East End to say they had a couple who wanted to be married. Since I had only one wedding slot left for the day I told them to come on down to my house and I would make it happen around 3 p.m. Now considering that the Reef is an hour away, and they had to come to George Town by taxi, this was cutting it close, but nevertheless I thought we could get the application for the Special Marriage License in by 3 p.m. when the government office closed for the weekend.

When I heard their story I was even more keen to do their wedding.

Since this couple arrived on 8 November which was literally in the middle of Hurricane Paloma, I can understand (a bit) how the dress went astray. Anyway the Bride bought her outfit in the hotel's gift-shop and the hotel sent out an SOS to yours truly to make it happen before their Sunday a.m. departure.
