Shotgun Wedding

We’re having a wedding. We need you there.

We’ve never had one before but we’ve seen it done a few times and we reckon we can wing it. We’ve got a man and a woman, we’ve got an extravagant dress, we’ve got a thousand mini-quiches and five sugared almonds in a little white bag. We’re going to take all these ingredients and make magic.

You, me, us – together.

Join us as we lodge another brick in the foundations of our nation’s future, and carry on the inexorable progress of civilisation.

We want to know what love is. We want you to show us.
