    A Truly Memorable Occasion!

    Wow wee! What a day. We came live from the bandstand at St James's Park and tried to warm the crowd up in prep for the big event. Take a look through the photos to see what went on and with who...

  • Pause For Thought

    From Canon Ann Easter, Chief Executive of a Charity and Chaplain to the Queen:

    "What an exciting day! I love a wedding and I’ve got my waterproof mascara on because I’m bound to have a little cry... I always find weddings terribly moving. After all, we’re seeing one human being say that they love another one so much that they want to devote their whole life to them. But each time two people commit themselves to each other like that, our hope in the future is redeemed.

    Just like millions of others before them, today William and Catherine will promise to have and to hold each other - ‘for better, for worse, for richer for poorer, in sickness and in health, to love and to cherish, till death us do part’.

    No matter how much we love someone, or how confident we are about our mutual attraction, we can’t possibly know them entirely and neither do we know what the future will bring. So it’s a great leap of faith in each other, in love and in God, especially for this young couple whose every glance will be monitored by the world.

    But I’m so glad that they’re taking that step because marriage is good news for everyone. Marriages – and I’d want to add civic partnerships too - are important knots in the fabric of our society; that sense of being seriously, publicly committed for the long haul, no matter what, gives our communities strength and stands out in our throw-away world to remind us of what matters among all the dross.

    When Catherine and William hold hands, look into each other’s eyes and kiss on the balcony, it won’t just be the crowds who’ll be cheering; I think the angels will whoop with joy too because we’ll have caught a glimpse of what God’s like; the love and passion of a happy couple echo God’s love for each and every one of us.

    So, may God bless them and give William and Catherine many, many years of joy and laughter together."
