Ruthie Denton Eastman sent in the following photo and story regarding a recent wedding she attended.
“The dress is French, there’s only one shop in England you can get it from, I am told. The wedding – held on 7 June this year – was 200 miles away in rural North Wales and both of us in the photo are called Ruth. Okay, we also knew each other (thank God!) because our husbands are both barristers in the same set of chambers, but it certainly seemed an incredible coincidence at the time. On the strength of it we posed for the cameras after supper and before the speeches at the reception. Oh, and the other Ruth was wearing a fascinator. Do you think J S-B would approve? My own hat was a last-minute buy from Marks and Spencer not sure how well it matches the shoes?!”
