Kim and Fi's Wedding



See the list of credits (people who made the wedding happen) below.

Kim and Fi got married at the Salisbury Centre in Edinburgh on Saturday 5th April 2014. It was an “interfaith” ceremony — spiritual without being religious — and a lot of friends and family were there. As you can see from their faces, it was a happy event.

After the ceremony we moved next door to the pub, the Salisbury Arms, and then round the corner to a local church hall where an amazing dinner had been prepared by a small group of incredibly hardworking volunteers (see their names below).

My brother Gavin was the best man and he gave a speech — his first on a stage — which was so funny that many suggested that he should try his hand at stand up comedy. Another of his many talents.

Rupert Wolfe Murray, 10th April 2014

Kim and Fi also wrote this in an email:

“Here is the list of helpers we have accumulated so far. There might well be others and will forward as I can. They do actually explain what people did with the exception of Gavin who did loads of food ordering and coordination in the last couple of weeks as well as Charles who I know made more salads and was basically directing the whole catering operation and was an extremely reliable heavyweight without whom we might have descended into a state of total chaos.”


Email from Gavin:

“Hey y’all

Great wedding. It was perfect beyond my imagining. Let’s look at the facts.

Forecast rain at 2pm meant wedding in the library. Reality was sunshine on couple, everyone got to attend.

The food was I think the best I’ve ever had at a wedding and there was more than needed (hard to gauge when the numbers kept changing and no idea how much sundry unknowns were cooking).

The music, the company, everything was great … until the cleanup. But even then it was ok, Kim said that sweeping the floor at 01:30 was a cleansing, happy moment.”

Message from the Honeymoon:

Having an unbelievably romantic honeymoon in Morocco.

Weather by the Atlantic is cooler than Marrakech but still incredibly pleasant. The colours, smells, tastes and sounds still so exotic and yet strangely familiar. The endless tourist markets full of nick-nacks you would find at festivals in the uk. Jimmy Hendrix apparently spent a formative sojourn in this town once upon a very long time ago. Now essaouira is one of the locations of the game of thrones series. However nothing can prepare you for the sensual overload of simply stepping out of the front door of the Riad (traditional home/hotel with rooftop terrace and/or garden) and rambling down the maze of narrow streets into the bustle and blether of the markets. Dodging urchins, hustlers and beggars.

Parrying smooth talking salesmen. Sidestepping stray cats hunting for scraps. The futile internal battle to resist the delightful temptations being proffered at every turn.

Lots of love and kisses

The lovebirds
