The official wedding poem by the poet laureate, Andrew Motion:

"Spring Wedding"

I took your news outdoors, and strolled a while

In silence on my square of garden-ground

Where I could dim the roar of arguments,

Ignore the scandal-flywheel whirring round,

And hear instead the green fuse in the flower

Ignite, the breeze stretch out a shadow-hand

To ruffle blossom on its sticking points,

The blackbirds sing, and singing take their stand.

I took your news outdoors, and found the Spring

Had honored all its promises to start

Disclosing how the principles of earth

Can make a common purpose with the heart.

The heart which slips and sidles like a stream

Weighed down by winter-wreckage near its source -



But given time, and come the clearing rain,

Breaks loose to revel in its proper course.

Well, at least Mr. Bean is there!

Stephen Fry and Joanna Lumley also attended - some other celebrities too, I forget who.

Guests from the world of show business included comics Stephen Fry and Rowan Atkinson, and actors Joanna Lumley, Richard E Grant, Kenneth Branagh, Prunella Scales and her husband Timothy West.

Other celebrities invited to the occasion included musicians Phil Collins and Sting, and novelist Jilly Cooper.

I think Elton John was there too,

And Jools Holland

(Actually I think that quotes wrong. Sting was invited but didnt attend. He sent his wife instead)

You must be on cloud 9 with this wedding.

Until the next one.

I caught some of it this morning. I actually liked the church outfit, it looked much better on TV than it photographs. I didn't like the hat. I just wish they had gotten married all those years ago and saved so much grief.

Does anyone have a Trudie Styler pic?

It's wrong for me to even say but I think Prince Harry is hotter than Prince William.

I think Harry is better looking than William. He seems comfortable in his own skin

Dunno how bright either of them are but were just talking about the spunk factor, right?

Thats how I feel too. And I wish Andrew had of married Koo Stark. etc. I think the Queen should let them marry whomever they want rather than "acceptable" partners whom they end up divorcing.

PS I'll keep a look out for Trudi Syler. Im trying to find Jools Holland at the mo.

Random fugliness.


Taras shoes are fab, I agree. I really like her dress as well. Her outfit is my favourite of the guests so far. Tara and Zara
