Let's Get Married
By Allan Morrison
It is said that weddings are made in heaven. But then again, so are clouds, rain, hail, hurricanes, thunder and lightning...In Allan Morrison's latest hilarious observational offering, we follow all that happens to loving couples - starting with that electric spark when they first meet. Once a courtship has settled down and the girl has decided she can't do any better, it's time for all those familiar moments: the meeting of the in-laws, the living together, the rituals of hen nights and stag dos; the Big Day; the honeymoon and then the hard stuff - sticking together.Humorous and gentle by turn, Allan adds his own gentlemanly warmth to a topic close to everyone's heart.
