The New York Marriage Bureau...

Good heavens, we're married

Newly wed in NYC

Last week, my partner Howard and I got hitched at New York City Hall. A few of you asked for pictures from the day....

We opted for black-and-white clothes because getting married at the old "Marriage Bureau" in City Hall felt like stepping into an old black-and-white movie. The dress comes from Howard's mum, a theatrical costume designer, who collects odds and ends of vintage clothing. It's sheer black lace (with a silk underslip) from the 1920s, via the costume department of the Royal Shakespeare Company, worn with a black silk Victorian-style jacket, black Victorian-style lace-up boots (which were also cast-offs from the RSC), and jewelry by the amazing Jen Parrish (Parrish Relics, Boston). Our wedding rings were made by our friend Miriam Boy-Hackney (Silverandmoor, Chagford), and the organdy silk scarf by our friend Mimi Panitch. The scarf bears a white-on-white quote from William Shakespeare: "Now join hands, and with your hands your hearts." Two points if you know what play that's from.
