The Wedding

The Vows

On Saturday 23rd August, 2003 Brian married his long term partner, Debbie McKenna, in a simple and good humoured ceremony at the Belvedere and Erith Congregational Church, London. Sue and I were fortunate to be invited to both the church event and the reception afterwards.


Brian says "I do"

In the photograph above Brian can be seen with Debbie (the one looking longingly into his eyes), Ben, Brian's best man, is on the left and Debbie's son, Che, is behind her. Also in the picture is the pastor Sue Wade, Minister of Latimer Chapel, Stepney.


Husband and Wife

The intense look on Brian's face shows how serious he was about the commitment and why it took Debbie 20 years to get Brian into a church.

When the Pastor announced that they were now husband and wife Debbie made a sign of victory, having waiting 20 years for this occasion, to which the congregation burst into spontaneous applause.


The Friends Whilst taking photographs of the bride with the bridesmaids the official photographer, Stuart Spence (Brian's brother), who was wearing a kilt, crouched down in front of the women and displayed to them that nothing is traditionally worn under the Scottish garb. Debbie later mentioned at the reception, with her normal honest frankness, that she thought she was marrying the right brother based on what she had seen. Stuart then provided the red mood lighting from his face.

Brian and DebbieIn the photograph of the all the friends, above, I can just be seen on Ben's left shoulder. Yes, the short one in purple trying to keep out of the picture (but not as successful as Sue who was to my right).

Brian also wore a generic Scottish kilt, rather than the MacDuff clan (which the Spence family is a member of and is more red in colour). When questioned about a rumour I heard that Brian had thought the red based tartan made his bum look big Brian made no effort to deny this comment. Normally it is women who question the size of their rear-end. I guess this proves that Debbie wears the trousers in their relationship.

The Wish in typical garb.The night was finished off with a series of friends getting up on stage and singing.

I must offer a big thanks to Stuart Spence for taking these photographs and also to Brian and Debbie for passing them on to me and allowing me to reproduce them here, plus intruding on their special day. Also my thanks to Virginia (see below) for trying to control the egos. Thanks again, everyone. Virginia
