Back Home

I was in Oxford over the weekend for the wedding of my good friends Alex & Claire. The wedding was a great success, it was a great day all round. I was the master of ceremonies and people were generally where they were supposed to be, when they were supposed to be there, so I think I did ok!

Both Alex and Claire have decided to change their names, so they’ll be Mr & Mrs Rennie-Lis (they’re currently Lis and Rennie respectively). I think the tradition of women changing their names is ridiculously outdated, I’m really impressed by their decision to join names. Although, I can’t help but wonder, how will it work if their children decide upon the same idea Mr & Mrs Smith-Jones-Rennie-Lis? 🙂

With my little camera being on the blink (aka, the screen is broken) I’m not carrying it any more, and so I don’t have any photos of the happy couple to share. If anyone would like to donate to the “Buy Callum a Camera Fund” please contact me and I’ll send you my PayPal details!

  1. Hey there! Callum’s right – the wedding was a great success, and largely due to the excellent efforts of my ushers throughout the day. Many many thanks to you yet again for your splendid performance!
    Regarding changing names, we felt it was a good compromise – Claire’s dad had three girls and is the last in his line of Rennies, and I’m the last in my line of Lis’s; so retaining both was important to both families.

    Photos will be online from the photographers within a couple of weeks I imagine, but the few I’ve seen on email from guests have suggested we looked pretty sharp ;-). I’ll email you a link when they’re there.
