Shakespeare said “If music be the food of love, play on”, and they did at Jade and Paul’s reception as the DJ played a series of upbeat tunes from the 80s, 90s and 00s. Although I’m not a great fan of loud music, I enjoy the feeling of sound vibrating through my whiskers. The happy humans gyrating around the dance floor combined with the tickle in my moustache was enough to make me shimmy and shake John Travolta style . And then I caught a glimpse of my reflection in the window and sheepishly skulked under the buffet table for a comforting lick! I do have a reputation to think about after all.
As I prepared to wash my left ear, I smiled to myself thinking about the girlies doing their hair and makeup before the ceremony. I had sauntered into the bridesmaids room in the morning because I’m a curious cat and found myself watching in amusement as they preened, plucked and pouted in front of an enormous mirror. They reminded me of myself in the middle of a full-on grooming session, only they had more fur! Only kidding ladies, you looked lovely and made pretty pictures for the camera with your twinkling eyes and matching accessories. The colour scheme for the day was based on my favourite shade of purple and everything from the posies to the table decorations was beautifully chosen to coordinate.
When the bride walked down the aisle, everybody thought she looked resplendent in her long flowing dress with shimmering veil. She had a big smile on her face, unlike her husband-to-be Paul who looked terrified! John and I have shot a number of weddings and I’ve noticed that the girls are always giggling and the boys tend to look nervous! I have no idea why but maybe John can explain it to me one day (yes he’s been there) as I’m unlikely to find out for myself. I’ve never met the right lady and I’m far too self-involved, I mean involved in my work! As Shakespeare said “to thine own self be true “. Good luck Jade and Paul.
