Liz has known John for 25 years from their time working in Dillons Bookshop on Gower Street. He's remained in publishing ever since. And we've known Kim for about 15 years. Goodness knows why they waited so long.
Anyway, it was a very bookish crowd of guests, including some we haven't seen since our wedding day.
The reception was at Skinners' Hall, a wonderful old, rabbit warren of a building next to Cannon Street Station. Skinners' refers to the old Guild of Furriers which was established in medieval times. The company still exists but is basically a philanthropic foundation these days. Fabulous food and a great day. The only downside was Kim's dodgy ankle, broken a few months ago. And how did she break it? Trying on her wedding dress... They say it's good luck.
