A Re-Marriage Comedy*

Going to the altar in Gibraltar, and finding a partner at St. George the Martyr.

After having had a lovely, private ceremony in Gibraltar, we noticed that we were missing a special ingredient to make our marriage complete: our family and friends. So, we’re doing it over again! We hope that you’ll join us on July 5th to celebrate the coming together of two families, two circles of friends, and the start of a new family.

Fun Fact: Did you know that in the Scottish Hebrides a handfasting only lasts for a year, unless a child is born? After the year is up the handfasting can be renewed, or the couple can choose to part.  It will be a year, a month, and a day for us. So, I guess it is time to renew .

 

 

 

*The re-marriage comedy is a term coined by philosopher and film theorist, Stanley Cavell. It refers to a group of fast talking comedy films from the 1940’s in which a divorced couple ends up remarrying, for example, The Philadelphia Story (1940) starring Cary Grant and Katharine Hepburn.
