For those who were wondering, the wedding was perfect. We could not have asked for anything better. Once again, a great many thanks to all of those who contributed to the day, and for all the many well-wishes that we received.
Lady Chocolat (Mrs /ven) and I are now in Mexico, having just had lunch, and are about to head over to one of the pools for a nice relaxing afternoon. This evening, we plan on drinking champagne and eating absurd amounts of free food. Plus, it's really hot.
Life is hell.
(Oh yes, for those who are wondering - there will indeed be a longer report on the wedding, potentially with pictures. But not right now!)
