Together

Today we had our first wedding at St James for over a year - all because of Covid. 
 
Nancy and Jeff's wedding had to be postponed last year because of the virus but it went ahead today, with a small socially distanced congregation of 15, all that is allowed under the regs. But it was a wonderfully joyful event even so. 
 
And with Nancy running the flower
shop in Jamaica Rd the flowers were pretty special.
 
Lots of people came to the churchyard to cheer the happy couple as they emerged from the church and, in a first for St James, Nancy and Jeff had their first dance in the church portico, cheered on by their delighted friends.
 
And they song they danced too? You could hardly think of anything more appropriate as they danced to 'Islands in the stream' and its repeated refrain: 'And we rely on each other, ah ha; 'Cause we love one another, ah ha.'

 
God bless them and all their family
