Kat and Mark's secret wedding

5 Dec 2020, 8:30 a.m.

A good news story from August last. Kat and Mark, who live on the Long Mountain, had been trying to get married for quite a while, with lots of postponements, most recently due to Covid of course. But Kat and her mother Lorraine hatched a plan to plan the wedding for Mark's birthday, but not to tell Mark. He arrived at the field above the church in his work clothes, expecting to help fix a mower, only to be met by Katrina holding a suit, and saying, "Would you marry me today?" Mark, bless him, was (almost) completely unfazed, and word perfect in church. And they made the papers, the radio, the TV news . . .
