There’s Nothing Like This

Over the weekend I had the privilege of performing poetry at a wedding. The groom was a gentleman I’d been working with last year and after coming to one of my performances, he had asked me to write a poem for him and his Fianceé that could be read at their wedding. The only requirements from is side was that the poem had to contain the words ‘I Love You So Many’ as that’s what they say to each other. So, off I go to write this poem, which turns out to be entirely based around the phrase. It’s pretty cheesy but just the kinda thing couples in love, LOVE!

Turns out he and his Fianceé loved it so much that they both cried when they read it and asked me to perform it for them at the ceremony. Which brings us to today…

It was a lovely wedding, the poem went down a treat and to top it all off, @NappyNubianPoet (or Carol Ohemaa for those in the real, non-twitter world) was my date, so I had great company too! For those that are interested, here’s what I wore:

It’s a little 1950’s esque number from River Island. Of course, I couldn’t disappoint on the nail front. I decided to go matching, so here we have the cherries on mint green look:

Oh, and did I mention that Omar performed at the wedding too?! Yes, THE Omar. The *sings* ‘There’s nothing like thisss’ Omar! (Hence the title of this post)

Don’t worry, we didn’t let him get away without getting photographic evidence (click ’em to see bigger)

Carol & Omar

Me & Omar

All in all, a great way to spend a Saturday & it was SO beautiful to see two people so in love and so happy, on such a special day, among their family and friends. It was wonderful to witness it and an honour to be a part of it.

    It is really disappointing to go to a page after another’s request that you go there and the damn reason you came is nowhere on the page, For those that are real, be cognizant that there is a lot to cover here and any infringement upon time is very distasteful and rude.

      What exactly is the reason you came to the page?

      I sincerely implore you not to come to this page at the behest of another, rather than though interest of your own. I don’t believe that my alleged ‘infringement upon time’ is ‘distasteful’ or ‘rude’ to anyone who visits here, as they do so with the knowledge that this is a personal blog, covering subjects that I, the author of this aforementioned *personal* blog, deem fit – no matter how long or short they may be.

      But thanks for visiting…

      The reason I came was at the author’s request to read a poem of theirs, but alas the poem was not there.

        Can you direct me to this request you received? As the author, I would have some recollection of any requests given to read poems that I, the author, have written but alas – there were none.
