Caz & Dave

Who are Caz & Dave?

Caroline Graham is the bestselling author of Midsomer Murders, and the creator of Chief Inspector Barnaby.

Dave Russell is of course a classic lightweight.

We are getting married, for the second time, on the weekend of 23rd and 24th June 2012, which also marks our first wedding anniversary. The last time we invited our friends to a party, it ended with Caz’s dad in a clinch with a giant pig-man:

Who knows what will happen this time round?

SOCIeTY

Our wedding party is being held at SOCIeTY. And, yes, it is written like that but we have no idea why…

It is at 33 Blackfriars Lane, London EC4V 6EP, but it can be a little tricky to find, so best to use this map to navigate from either St Paul’s, Mansion House or Blackfriars.

We’re starting early with some champagne and cocktails at 7pm so please join us then to ensure we truly make the most of the night – and then we can get the speeches out of the way nice and early too.

Dinner is at 8pm and the dancing will end at 1am as the two of us need to get up the following day for the chuppah.

In terms of dress code; the sparklier the better.

And wear your dancing shoes of course…

Kehillas Ya’akov

As many of you know, we have a close connection to a beautiful historic synagogue in the East End of London- Congregation of Jacob Synagogue, also known as Kehillas Ya’akov.

We will be having our chuppah (wedding ceremony) there on Sunday 24th June.

However, because the synagogue is so small,  it is going to be a squeeze (and probably a safety risk) if everyone from the night before joins us.

Therefore, please do not feel obliged to attend, as we will be able to guarantee you a better view anyway on the film that we promise to post on this site soon afterwards.

For reasons of space it also means children are not invited. Sorry about this.

For those that choose to come, then no need to dress up for the occasion, and ensure you are wearing comfortable shoes as it will likely be standing room only.

The chuppah will start at 345pm. The ceremony is around 45 minutes. So please ensure to get there in good time, otherwise you may miss us – as we will be heading to Bushey for a tea with our folks and their friends, and family, soon afterwards.

But honestly, we really will not feel offended if you do not come along.

For anyone who would like the opportunity to see the synagogue, then we will be having an Auf Ruf on Saturday, 12 May. This is where the groom is called up to the Torah, and we will celebrate afterwards with a fress (from the yiddish fressen, to eat). The service will start at 9.10am, but feel free to come anytime before 10.30am. The call-up will be around 11am, and we should be finished by midday.

Gifts

There really is no obligation here at all but should you wish to show your love for us through the medium of kitchenware and bedding, then we do plan to have a wedding list. Guess where? Correct! John Lewis. It opens on 13th May, gift list number 510011. Just click here to access it.

Alternatively you could buy John Lewis vouchers or make a contribution to our new home, wherever that will be.

Or even better, you could give to some people who really need it, via one of several charities that are close to our hearts:

For Caroline:
Cambodia Trust
– Marie Curie Cancer Care

For Ruckle:
– Survivors Fund
Kehillas Ya’akov

Or you could freestyle.

Or get us nothing.

It’s really up to you and how well you can live with yourselves.
