The invitation…

You may recall that way back in August, I received an invitation from two very old friends of mine, Simon and Helen…

Helen & Simon

…and I do mean old in every sense of the word. LOL!!! Simon and I go way back to the 50’s ever since we entered Primary 1 and Helen and I were great friends during our swinging party days in the 70’s. That was precisely why I was away in Kuching for the weekend – to attend this very special event and to share the joy in this very happy occasion.

Their daughter, Heather, got married here on Saturday, 29th September, 2012…

St Joseph's Cathedral Kuching

…to Donny…

The young couple arrived at the cathedral in style in this bridal sedan…

The bridal sedan

…driven by the groom-to-be himself. I was told that things have changed and are no longer like what we used to do in the long gone past.

Some have remained the same though. The proud father still had the honour of walking his daughter down the aisle to the altar and handing over his daughter’s hand in marriage…

Father & bride

…and after the vows were exchanged and the rings as well…

With this ring

…the blissful couple were proclaimed man and wife.

Congratulations once again, Heather and Donny and here’s wishing the two of you endless love and happiness in the years ahead…and congratulations also to Simon and Helen. Don’t worry, as the groom said at the wedding reception, “You two have not lost a daughter but instead, you have gained a son.”

More of the wedding in the next post, so stay tuned, everyone!
