Money Can't Buy Me Love, 29 Oct 16

On a dark, dreary October day, it was a pleasure to enter The Gate Arts Centre, and step into the light and warmth of this beautiful Grade II listed building in Roath.

We love a space with a good acoustic (and a party) so we instantly felt at home. Some of the ladies even turned their hand to a spot of flower arranging to help the hostess put the finishing touches to dressing the tables.

With a grand piano in the room singing its siren song, our conductor couldn’t resist tinkering with its ivories, so insisted on accompanying us in ‘O Magnum Mysterium’. As an a cappella choir it is a luxury to have an instrument other than the voice to assist with pitch. Not one to let us rest on our laurels, however, the MD borrowed a score from the only chorister who was sight-singing his part. Well, we like a challenge…

Rehearsal over, we sat down to a delicious feast cooked up by The Ethical Chef, an award-winning pop-up restauranteur from Carmarthenshire.

With food in our bellies, the taste of wine on our lips, and a song in our hearts, we raised a hearty musical toast to the happy couple: Anna Daniel and Chrishan Kamalan. Thank you for your hospitality and for allowing us the stage at your wedding celebration party. Here's what it looked like from our perspective. Photos.

Four out of the five members of my family have individually learned this lesson the hard way. Because of our individual work, our relationship with each other has grown and changed. I am grateful.As my daughter says.....Damn, we looked good......just like the Leave It To Beaver Family!! Fooled the world and ourselves!Great tips.Thanks for the ideas.
