The guests were there to celebrate a first birthday party for the couple’s little girl. They had just finished blowing out the candle and singing “Happy Birthday” when I arrived on the scene and swapped the candle for a cute pair of owls dressed as a bride and groom. The penny slowly dropped and happy amazement was visible on everyone’s faces. Even the couple’s parents had no inkling that the birthday gathering was also going to be a wedding celebration. The only other person in on the secret was the bride’s best friend who had flown over from Canada to be there. It was a wonderful, joyous wedding for a very lovely couple who realised how much they wanted to spend the rest of their lives together.
