But it was all too much for some.
In amongst the preparations I nipped off to the hairdressers, where the woman the night before had assured me she could do something with my hair which, let’s face it, after five months on the road is badly in need of a cut and colour.
However when I got there she spent most of the time lamenting the fact that I have “small hair”. “You have no hair” she told me, as she emptied an entire can of hairspray into it. My poor sister than had to go running about in the heat looking for some flowers to add to it.

Eventually with my small hair in place I was allowed to go back to the room where Kate’s hair had been effortlessly curled and her makeup beautifully done and she was in the process of changing into her gorgeous big dress. It was so exciting to be helping with the last minute preparations while simultaneously trying not to fall over the Thai photographers, who were big fans of the candid shot, which always make me look like I’m having a go at someone.

|Exchanging the vows.|
|Staying out of the heat.|

|The happy family.|
