  It was one of those invitations that land in your inbox and catch your eye because of their sheer unlikeliness.  I’ve been to wine and food matching dinners – but matching wines to wedding dresses?  Surely this was some sort of wind-up?  But no, having re-read the invitation, this was definitely what it said: […]
