Mark and Miyuki Celebrate their Wedding - 22nd September 2012

Seventy-seven guests joined Mark and Miyuki at Jesus College Cambridge for their
Wedding and a celebration meal. There was a Rehearsal on Friday in the Church.
Afterwards the two families had a relaxed meal at a restaurant in Madingley.

The families returned and spent the night in College accommodation (the newly
built Library Court). Next morning there was a Full English Breakfast in the College
Hall for everyone. That afternoon there was a Civil Wedding (just for the Family),
followed by a Blessing in All Saints Church. After drinks and photographs the
crowd almost filled the Hall for Supper, a delicious menu with eye appeal as well.

After the meal there were speeches in Japanese and English. The merrymakers
went to try out Barn Dancing in a room above the Bar, which was equipped with
Bar Football (enjoyed by Ian and Miharu, Miyuki's younger sister). The dancing was
energetic and filled the upstairs room with whirling bodies "Stripping the Willow".

On Sunday morning about 15 of the Family and Guests were treated to a guided
Tour of some of the ancient Cambridge Colleges, especially St John's, which has
a very fine mediaeval entrance gate, a modern Library inside and the famous
"Bridge of sighs" at the rear.

The photographs below are a few of the "family" snapshots taken by Robin Hendy.
The official photographer probably took over 1,000, some of which we hope to be
able to publish soon. They should include everyone who attended the Wedding
