    Congratulations, Mr and Mrs JF!
    I can’t say it better myself, so I’ll raise my (metaphorical) glass to Jon’s toast.

    How wild, I went to a wedding party for a friend of my husbands, it’s one of those rare experiences of being at a party where I didn’t know a soul, yet everyone was such good fun

    bare joyful fruit? ;)or bear it? (or maybe both?) in any case, may they be very happy

    cheers for this, I think it’s prophetic sometimes, to look for good things to wish for

    What’s so good about Jon’s toast Timbo? has it got Marmalade on it? And i don’t believe for a second that your glass was metaphorical. I wish mine wasn’t. Cheers – to the happy couple!

    It’s a really nice touch Jon – I really like weddings, they always seem full of joy and hope, so thanks for this.

    Subo that’s awesome. Gives me hope to hear that – i hate it when people feel left out and its so easy to find that happening at these things so its cool to hear about a welcoming party.

    And I’ll add my congratulations to the new Mr & Mrs JF, and simply say a loud ‘Amen’ to Jon’s sentiments for you both.

    In Scotland we say “Orra best”, unless we’re Christians, in which case we say “Orra blest”.

    Congratulations. A good marriage is a wonderful thing.

    JF – with the exception of my own wedding yours is the best wedding day I have been at…. very.. very happy for you both.

    Hi All
    Sorry to add my own comment so late… but there was thankfully no Internet (or even phone reception) on our honeymoon on Dartmoor. I really enjoyed the wedding and glad that everyone else also seems to have had a good time. I have been humbled and overwhelmed by everyone’s words and acts of kindness. I am so grateful to everyone. And massive, specific thanks to the ring maker, artistic designer and leader of prayers…!
