On Saturday 7 June 2008 at 12 noon at St Mary's Church, New Road, Peterborough, I will be marrying my best friend and sweetheart, Maria Situmbeko.
We have become a familiar sight around town and at council events, and Maria's shop in Eastfield Road is becoming more and more popular.
Because Maria does not have a valid visa to stay in this country (appeal pending), we had to seek Home Office permission to marry - which came through on May 2nd.
We only have three months to give notice to marry, but we are actually going to "do the deed" just over a month after permission arrived. Hows that for arranging a quick wedding!
