The Assembly Rooms on Edinburgh’s George Street are world famous as the Fringe’s leading comedy venue and Nicola & Fraser’s ceremony had its funny moments too. Just as the ceremony was due to begin, we got a call to say her car had broken down. Then we had another call saying the replacement car had a problem with the brakes and they were waiting on a third one to come and collect them.
Half an hour later, Nicola finally arrived on the arm of her dad, Jim, looking supremely elegant and unflustered under a lace veil that she kept on until the end of the ceremony when Fraser was finally allowed to lift it and give her a long-awaited kiss.
It was a quirky, very personal ceremony, with a reading by Fraser’s uncle of a poem by the late great surrealist poet and musician Ivor Cutler that really caught the mood of the day.
