Last Friday, I received a text message half way through Radiohead’s show at the Rod Laver Arena in Melbourne. It was Alicia telling me that her and Tim were somewhere about 15m in front of me and excited about how amazing the show was. I’d known that Radiohead was a love for Alicia and Tim (they traveled to Sydney for another of their shows a few days earlier) and being one of my favourite bands of all time forever and ever, it was inevitable we’d be friends. And they decided to have their honeymoon in Sri Lanka so I had a pretty good feeling these two people were good at making excellent decisions! Granted, it did take nearly 9 years for them to decide to get married so perhaps they’re not so fast on the decision making (a running joke in their family), but having gotten to know them a bit better over the last few months, there’s no doubt at all it was the best decision the two of them could have made together.
Besides memorable underpant wedgie adjustments, dog poo on wedding dresses and the largest wedding photographer in the world trying to fit into the smallest space in a wedding car moments, it was just a beautiful day for a pair of wonderful people who are going to have a damn fine life together.
