Carol weds Fran – Manchester Ladies Become Brighton Brides
There was champagne.
There was confetti.
And following the brief registry office ceremony, there was a seaside 2-bride portrait ride at low tide! (Look, we made a poem!)
Their ‘reception’ was a very exclusive affair down at Brighton’s swanky Grand Hotel. Guest list: two.
Now you know how much we love a good joke around here. And we’re loathe to miss an opportunity to take shots at anything that isn’t clever enough to duck its head. However, this is where our humor falls off, our grins fade and our eyes mist ever so slightly in light of the difficult reality these newlyweds are facing. Cancer. (Anybody who makes cancer jokes is either a braver soul than me, or doesn’t fear karma/god/fate/taxes. Or they have cancer – if you have cancer, joke away, and we applaud your pluck!) Yes, so, Carol has an advanced case of cancer, which is part of the reason this wedding went down on such short notice. And we are so amazed by the strength, courage and all-around bad-assery of this lady. Seriously. Our hats are off to you.
And here, we pause to applaud the bravery, say a prayer, think positive thoughts, send out all the good vibes and righteous ju-ju in the direction of Carol’s fight and Fran’s support. We are hopeful for the future, trusting in the treatment, and expect to see good things from these two.
And seriously, F*CK Cancer.
