Kate + Kyle

Finesse ran throughout Geri and Kev’s wedding. I saw it in Geri’s inability to sit while others helped; in her willingness to climb onto a big fallen tree in her wedding dress; in the personalised and handwritten card on each guest’s place setting; in her persistent and constant efforts to deflect the limelight onto those she loves; in every word of her speech, but in these in particular: “Even after all this time, the Sun never says to the Earth, you owe me. Look what happens with a love like that. It lights the whole sky.” There were other more precise examples and subtle moments of kindness that I clocked but I know that Geri wouldn’t want me to draw attention to them. As I said: finesse.
