The ceremony will be held on the covered patio.
No direct sunshine, but also no air-conditioning.
Guests are invited to be seated from 3:45.
Once the ceremony begins, relax and enjoy it. We will have a professional photographer and ask that guests do not use their cellphones to take photos during the ceremony.
We'll celebrate upstairs at The Tabard Inn with cocktails and entertainment by the Cherry Blossom String Quartet, before gathering for dinner, speeches, and dancing (and maybe an after-party for the late-night crowd!).
For the last few years, Joanna's father (John Simper) has supplemented an active weekly regime including absolutely no structured exercise with a 5k, as part of the international Parkrun program. This weekend will be his 100th run and we'll be joining him - one of the few times that all the family can do this together.
We invite you to join us - there will be fast runners, slow runners, and a walking contingent. You can register ahead of time if you would like your time to be logged (it's free, bit.ly/parkrun100), or you can just show up!
