Who will be at the ceremony?

Most overseas weddings are civil ceremonies, in the style of registry office services, unless a religious ceremony has

been pre-arranged. The ceremony will be conducted by a Judge, Celebrant,

Minister or Registrar. You will need two to four witnesses, who could be anyone from your wedding guests to people you have met on the beach the previous day. Your wedding planner will be there too, to ensure your day goes without a hitch.

The important bits.

Beverly was different: more of a minx, bordering on being ‘bad’. She was petite and gorgeous and looked the picture of eye-fluttering innocence, although swore like a navvy and loved to talk about the detail of sex in a way that had me squirming with embarrassment. We went to the cinema a couple of times together, and once we met after school and went back to her house to roll clumsily around her bedroom floor, but in my heart I knew I had as much chance with Beverly as I did with Caroline: absolutely none. Those apart, I had had a number of minor encounters, but otherwise was an innocent. Some people awarded me greater status in this area than I ever deserved, but when I left home at 16, I was as green as could be in the matter of the opposite sex. My time at the School of Navigation in Plymouth gave me a kick-start, because I was closeted with John and Jimmy and Barry and others who knew how to act towards girls, knew how to speak to girls, knew how to pick up girls, knew how to charm girls. I aped their behaviour as best I could within the confines of my own personality, and began to grow in confidence and ability. I soon discovered that I was only really effective when I was drunk, although this proved to my advantage in my new world, where I usually became drunk whenever I went out: the requirement thus aided my chances, rather than hindered them. When I first starting meeting ‘bad’ girls in the East, I couldn’t believe how they acted towards me. I made jokes – they laughed; I told stories – they listened attentively; I complained about my hard day – they commiserated; I spoke of going to some dangerous place – they told me how brave I was; I bought them a drink – they told me how generous I was: if I was hurt, they comforted me; if I was agitated, they calmed me down; if I was tired, they soothed me.
