Firstly, HUGE congratulations to my big brother and his beautiful new wife Hannah on starting their married life together.
I was very touched to be asked to do a reading at the ceremony and decided to try and write something so it was slightly more personal… in the end it was very last minute so I wasn’t happy enough to read it in front of people but I don’t mind sharing it here:
