What a stunning bride!
And your grin suggest you know it.


Where was the marriage? The church looks somehow familiar.

Hi guys,

LoBaron - Thanks. She was and is absolutely beautiful. The church was St. Mary the Virgin Church in Drayton Beauchamp.

Leo - Many thanks

ILS - Indeed  Having said that when I joined the community I was 21....I DID feel young then

For those interested in seeing more pics here's a link to the Blog of our Photographer with some more on. He's an amazing photographer and if you're in the UK and want a good photographer then I can HIGHLY recommend him - http://www.greenlees-photography.com/blog/2011/09/03/pendley-manor-tring-wedding-photography-steven-rebeccas-wedding/

Maybe I have been there long ago on my travel through England in the early 90´s.
I remember visiting Oxford and then driving east to the coast at Ipswich, not sure if
we passed Aylesbury though.

I got so many pictures of churches from that trip that its more probable I confuse locations.


Anyways, youre one lucky guy. Congratulations!

What a nice picture, Speedy. Thanks for sharing. Your day coat looks like the one I wore for my wedding some years back-very nice. Agree with the others-your wife is stunning in her wedding gown.

What *really* floored me though was the prospect of sunshine. In England? What's up with that?

Congratulations, Speedy.  That is a "comely young lass," and I see by viewing the photo blog that you are well aware of that fact!

Now, as a public service, you might share these nice photos with GreyJoy, who is terribly confused about the attributes found in "comely young lasses."

Best wishes for a very long marriage - so long that your children and grandchildren look at your wedding day photos and exclaim:  "Wow, look at Gramps Speedy!  He looks so young!"

congratulations to you and your dazzeling bride Speedy!!! Nice honeymoon you have planned there, see the other side of the world in 120 days, cool. Could be an opportunity to show your wife what it means to be married to a military historian/wargamer. Visiting military history museums or places of military significance where ever you go.

As for our Honeymoon we're off to Aus, NZ and Fiji for 4 months which should be great


They say Fiji is for lovers but can also be for military historians(maybe for half a day). About an hour drive South of Nadi are the Momi Guns containing two 6 inch CD guns. http://www.fijitimes.com/story.aspx?id=81548 Per the article, there are some other sites but we only had time for Momi as we were on a dive trip and the main road was not to far away.

Australia has a multitude of museums. I've been to the RAAF Museum at Point Cook just south of Melbourne and the Australian War Memorial in Canberra. Would highly recomend both. There was this cool hanger just North of Geelong where some guys were rebuilding a B-24 that served in the RAAF during WWII.

Ohh, should you get as far North as Brisbane, remember, you are only a short 3 hour flight from Henderson Field. My Wife and I only spent four days there as we were on a tighter timetable had to see Oz and Guadalcanal in only 2 weeks.

Have a great Honeymoon!!!

Hi guys and thanks,

Ignoring Terminus as per norm

Mark - The irony of this is I genuinely hadn't thought of us going to WW2 sites on our honeymoon! Maybe I could sneak one or 2 in. Fiji is out of the question as we're in a luxury 2 weeks all expenses paid for hotel chilling. Australia has more options though as we're travelling from Cairns to Adelaide at our own pace (buses mainly)

Fiji has some of the best diving on the planet, give it a try if your resort offers it. My Wife Unit MkI says Australia has lots of good wineries (if she likes wine) that maybe you offer to go to this winery and then we go to this museum. That was her plan. The wineries are mostly south especially in the Adelaide area.

If you go through Canberra you got to hit the Australian War Memorial. I thought it better than the Imperial War Museum in London. Plan on at least half a day.
