Twas a week before Christmas, when Andrea and Rich
on the 17th of December decided to get hitched.
Their friends and their families gathered to call,
as the radiant bride walked through Barton hall.
Oli and Toby went ahead of their mum,
excited their family journey had begun.
Both were delighted, because they knew
this was a day for them to celebrate too.
Inside the Orangery the crowd they did hush
As the crescendo started, and Richard did blush.
Led down by Ernie, in her glistening white dress
inhales by those present, who felt greatly blessed.
With each step to Richard, there's no befuddle
Little Miss Barnard will marry her Trouble.
A stick-out of tongue and a little eye-wink;
Exchanges of knowing how the other will think.
