Sarah just texted to tell us they had arrived in Tucson, 18 hours after we dropped them at Heathrow. It’s 3.30 in the morning, and we’ve just woken to catch our own flight to Dubrovnik where we will recuperate from exertions of the last few days.
It was a great wedding. Sarah met James a few weeks into her Uni experience over 11 years ago. They roomed together as she completed not one but two degrees as she pursued her lifetime ambition of becoming a veterinary surgeon. Sarah Jervis, MRCVS is now Mrs Sarah Bolt and very pleased she is to be so. As proud parents and parents-in-law, we’re delighted too.
It seemed inevitable from the earliest days that Sarah and James would be a long term item. The two of them have an easy grace to their relationship that feels right. I’m sure they’ve had their ups and downs, but seeing them on Saturday, so obviously proud and full of love for each other, made the day a very special one for everyone who was there. We will all remember it for a very long time to come. Congratulations to you both!
