Kate &Hamish's Wedding

September 23, 2000

Despite a nationwide petrol crisis and torrential rain and flooding the previous week, on the Big Day, the skies finally cleared and the sun came out. Kate & Hamish finally tied the knot (after an impatient eight year wait by their respective families!!) at Slindon Church. Sophie Bryan sang Ave Maria (now a Dingemans family wedding staple) and Liz Knight performed a charming rendition of Now We Are Two by A. A. Milne. The reception was held at Bishop's Piece in the garden. In the speeches, Norman Dingemans educated the audience about differences international wedding rites and also espressed relief that Hamish had taken "Decision Making" courses at Cranfield to help him finally pop the question. Hamish flattered the Bride who looked beautiful, but then had the audience doubled over when he thanked Norman and Patricia for all their incredible hard work, "without which it would not have been possible." Dancing went on late into the night until the happy couple exited on foot through an aisle of flaming torches and vanished off down the lane.
