Claim to fame gets hitched

…Yes, folks! Your fave page rushed off to Pronuptia, squeezed itself into a rather attractive taffeta number, and sauntered off to the wedding of Peter Oxendale, Frankies keyboard player and all-round Good Guy, as he tied the knot with Carolyn May Bremner-Smith, whos got a degree in Russian and was once voted Miss Bradford. The wedding took place in Leeds, and the reception was awash with Frankies and friends. C.T.F. managed to thrust a camera in front of all of them, and this is what we saw…

  • L-R: Ged OToole, Ped, Mark (we hope hes not doing what we think hes doing), Bonnie, Peter (the groom), and Carolyn (the bride).
  • Mark does his ‘legendary Groucho Marx impression
  • “No.1? Sorry mate, tradesmans entrance is round the back…” Mark tells C.T.F. where to get off.
  • Heres the real Mark OToole… a pint (or six), a fag, and a kind word for everybody. (Are you sure about this last one?—Ed).
  • Enough of this malarkey—here are some real megastars, our very own Paul ‘Mmm, kinda dreamy Bursche swapping rock ‘n roll anecdotes with Bonnie Tyler. Mind-blowing!
  • Joanne Harland, who went to Japan with Frankie courtesy of No.1, received an invitation to the wedding. Lucky girl, eh? Here she is renewing her acquaintance with Paul Rutherford.
  • Would you invite these people to your wedding?
  • Aaaaahhhhh… young love is a wonderful thing, dontcha think? Heres Ped and girlfriend Lisa waiting for the vol-au-vents.
