Fairy Tale Time in New York

April 2, 2018 –

Janelle McCulloch, author of a number of impressive works concerning, inter alia, Paris, Provence and Picnics, married Neil Jenkins in a snow-blanketed Central Park this day.

Not nice weather for ducks

The Varnished Culture, being warned for hearing and attending as witnesses, awoke to inclement April conditions…

We had to get from The Carlyle to Central Park West, so before too long, we were trudging through the snow like Napoleon’s troops bugging out of Moscow…

P strikes a Napoleonic pose

Eventually, after some crazy old man gave us perfectly wrong directions, we found a guide (well, someone going our way), met-up with Neil and Janelle et al, and gathered at the rotunda on the lake for the happy ceremony.

After a civil celebrant had done the honours, and some vows were exchanged, the deed was done, and the Wedding Party adjourned to the Plaza Hotel for some warmth, champagne and general conviviality.

Given the prevailing meteorological conditions, we think it apt to toast Neil and Janelle with a comment by a character called Olaf, from the Broadway hit Frozen (which TVC is not likely to ever see): “Some people are worth melting for.”

The Happy Couple face the future…and Janelle inadvertently gives our hotel a plug
