I did not watch all the preamble, nor the post-reports, but I watched the whole ceremony itself, and I found it quite moving and splendid. The English do this kind of thing so well. In the midst of all the fashion, the celebrity spotting, the wall-to-wall reporting etc, the wedding itself was beautifully staged and celebrated by the bishops, dean and cathedral staff. The choir was superb, the choice of music both expected and unexpected (and well chosen). There is only one perfect wedding really and that is between Christ and His Church, and it could be said that it is - for now on earth - a rather one-sided affair, so all weddings have their idiosyncrasies and "problems". As a spectator, this was one of the best weddings I have ever seen. I found it deeply spiritual and quite moving. I was especially impressed by the bride's brother (?) who read the lesson and the Bishop of London who delivered an excellent sermon. At the heart of all the splendour there was and remains real substance and I thank God for that.
