A Wonderful Day!

I was privileged yesterday to have won a place in the ballot for MPs and Parliamentary staff to watch the wedding parade pass the gates of Parliament. It was a wonderful occasion and one that I shall remember for the rest of my life.

Mark with Adam Afriyie, MP for Windsor, and Claire Perry, MP for Devizes

...and with Caroline Dinenage, MP for Gosport, and her dashing Naval Officer husband

Flying the Flag in Rochester and Strood
 
We had a wonderful range of street parties across the constituency, ranging from a dozen or two to several hundred attendees, but all united in celebration.
 

Baker Street, Rochester, where hooks for the bunting were still in place from Charles and Diana's wedding

Brompton, a great community day out with their own tiered wedding cake

In Hoo, with my office manager Chris Irvine who provided the soundtrack for hundreds of Hoo villagers

At Chequers Court in Strood, the only time I was asked about the AV referendum!

Weston Road, Strood meeting the British weather - she was shining!

...Allington Drive, Strood, where wheelbarrow races were all the rage.
