When you’ve been together for half a lifetime, a wedding seems like the cherry on top of a pretty spectacular cake.
And watching Claire & James get hitched was no exception.
Some couples belong together in a way that just makes perfect sense; the day we got to officially ‘Meet the
Cleeves’ was a day where all the stuff that truly mattered just clicked into place. With belly laughs and bellies full,
you could have cut the love in the room with a knife and served it for dessert.
Now, can he cook? No. Does she appreciate that a good *cough* expensive *cough* pair of sneakers are actually an
investment? Nope. Does it matter? Heck no! If you can remember awkward chats together on MSN Messenger (all
the 80s & 90s kids to the front), you know you’re in it for the long haul.
So what does matter?
In James’ own words: to be happy & successful together.
And we think that is the most perfect, simple answer anyone could have, because both of those things are the
ultimate goal for all of us.
