The pirate themed wedding was a great success, although the groom confessed to me in private that he regretted missing the opportunity to show off his magic tricks. My parents enjoyed themselves immensely – even my poor father who was nursing a broken hand. I was particularly grateful that I had worn flat shoes for the dancing.
With my own nuptials in the not too distant future a couple of wedding guests made enquiries about our plans. I explained that TPR was keeping the arrangements for the celebrations secret from me. All I knew was that the venue was in the Borders.
When they moved on to TPR to question him directly, he gave very guarded responses. I did learn, however, that CC was our wedding planner, and that she knew everything.
