Certain weddings have unforgettable moments -- for all the wrong reasons. The unforgettable moment of my own wedding to E was when the three-tier cake toppled. Even today, at son M's wedding, a nephew came to me and asked: "Is it true that the cake toppled?" Well, yes, in my very own hands -- though not completely. This came up several times today. OBSERVATION: My favourite incidents, among weddings that I have conducted: a bride who tripped over her train and fell in the mud, before she entered the Church -- and a ring-bearer who dropped a ring at the critical moment, which went rolling under the pews.
