Marcus and I are going to Stockholm tomorrow for a wedding. No, not our wedding, but that of his friends Katarina and Martin.

Marcus has made Katarina's wedding dress. I had no idea how much work goes into couture. He has spent every free moment of the last month sketching, designing, cutting, stitching, fitting, adjusting, and - right on schedule - finishing the dress. His attention to detail is astonishing - for instance, every button has to be "dressed" by hand in a fiddly operation. But the hard work has paid off - the dress is lovely. Simple, elegant, stylish. Beautiful.

Photos when we return on the 27th.
