Because of English law, we had to be married in a licensed venue (after fulfilling a residency requirement and formally registering) in order for our wedding to be completely legal. Unlike the United States, you can't get married just anywhere, anytime -- and technically you can't legitimately get married at Stonehenge (partly because it's open-air). So we made a little "pit stop" early in the day.
|We left London early in the morning on our luxurious "Love Bus" -- complete with an onboard toilet and kitchenette.||Yes, we decorated the bus! To our delight, the driver turned out to be an incredible tour guide, who unexpectedly narrated much of our trip.|
|This building is Marlborough Town Hall, where we held our traditional wedding ceremony. Marlborough got its name from "Maerl's Barrow" -- meaning Merlin's grave (yes, that Merlin is supposed to be buried here). The town's motto is "Ubi nunc sapientis ossa Merlini" i.e., "Where now are the bones of wise Merlin."||Here's our entire wedding party. Even the speaker telephone -- Robin called his mum in Australia so she could listen live to the ceremony. (These people can hardly wait to go outside and throw things at us.)|
|Here we come!||Some of them have waited years for a legitimate excuse to throw things at us.|
|This was a special blend we supplied of biodegradable white hearts and rose petals.||Confetti rains down.|
|Kiss the bride!||Presenting the new Mr. & Mrs. Robin Wiley...|
Proof it's legal!
