Mr & Mrs Bootcamp


Written and read at our Wedding by Claire West

ONE LOVELY APRIL MORNING WITH THE EARLY SUN IN THE SKY A BEAUTIFUL LADY CALLED KIM THOUGHT SHE’D GIVE BOOTCAMP A TRY

THERE TOWERED AL, WITH HIS BOOTCAMP STARE HE DIDN’T EVEN BLINK A MEAN MACHINE, STOOD ON COLLETT GREEN WITH A CLIPBOARD OF MANLY PINK!

AS KIM DID SQUATS AND BURPEES IT WAS FITNESS ON HER MIND SHE NEVER DREAMT THAT THOSE KETTLE BELLS WOULD ONE DAY BE THE WEDDING KIND

BUT, THE MONTHS WENT ON, AND THE FOLLOWING JUNE CUPID FLEW PAST CAMP FIT HE FIRED 2 ARROWS INTO THE AIR AND SCORED A DOUBLE HIT

THROUGH THE HEARTS OF KIM AND AL CUPIDS DARTS DID ZOOM AND LIKE THE FLOWERS IN COLLETT PARK ROMANCE BEGAN TO BLOOM

THEIR FIRST DATE WAS TO A RESTAURANT IN WELLS AND THERE WAS ONLY ONE SLIGHT BLIP WHEN THE WAITRESS ENQUIRED WOULD THEY LIKE SAUCES ALLAN ASKED FOR SOME TRICEP DIP!

MORE DATES WERE HAD AND A FEW MONTHS IN EXCITING PLANS WERE MADE A TRIP WAS BOOKED TO THE LAND OF OZ FROM SYDNEY TO ADELAIDE

ONE DAY WHILST SAT OUTSIDE THEIR CAMPERVAN HAVING A FEW OZZIE BEERS KIM WANTED TO GET A PRESENT FOR AL AND HAD ONE OF HER GREAT IDEAS!

“AL! – I’VE BOOKED YOU TO SWIM WITH SOME SHARKS” “IN AUSTRALIA, ITS ALL THE RAGE” “THERE’S ONLY ONE SLIGHT PROBLEM” “I FORGOT TO ORDER THE CAGE!”

UNDETERRED, OFF WENT AL BENEATH THE WAVES HE SANK KIM SWEARS TO THIS DAY THAT WHILE HE SWAM WITH THOSE SHARKS HE HAD ONE OF THEM DOING A PLANK!

IN JUNE LAST YEAR, ON A TRIP TO FRANCE ALLAN TOOK THE ENGAGEMENT PLUNGE HE TOOK KIMS HAND AND WENT DOWN ON ONE KNEE WITH A PERFECTLY EXECUTED LUNGE

HE PRESENTED HIS KIM, WITH A LOCK ON A BRIDGE IN GAY PARIS ENGRAVED WITH THAT IMMORTAL QUESTION OF “WILL YOU MARRY ME?”

WE KNOW HER ANSWER, SHE SAID “I WILL” OF COURSE THATS WHAT SHE’D SAY AND WE LOVE THAT ITS A FRIDAY WEDDING OR WE’D ALL BE AT WORK TODAY

WE KNOW THEY MAKE A PERFECT COUPLE IF ALLAN IS IN A BAD MOOD KIM DRIVES HIM TO THE CHINESE BUFFET AND STUFFS HIM FULL OF FOOD

AND IF KIM IS EVER FEELING DOWN AL GETS RID OF THE BLUES BY PASSING HER HIS CREDIT CARD AND LETTING HER BUY MORE SHOES!

KIM YOU MADE THE EFFORT THAT FIRST BOOTCAMP MORNING YOU BOTHERED TO GET OUT OF BED YOU ONLY WENT TO GET YOURSELF FIT AND NOW YOU’VE GOT YOURSELF WED!

ALLAN – WE KNOW YOU HATE CARDIO BUT TODAY IT HAS ITS PLACE WHEN YOU FIRST SET EYES ON YOUR BEAUTIFUL BRIDE YOUR HEART MUST HAVE STARTED TO RACE

SO LOOK BACK ON THOSE BURPEES WITH FONDNESS THEY’VE LED YOU TO BECOME MAN AND WIFE AND TODAY IS AN EXERCISE IN CELEBRATION AS YOU START YOUR MARRIED LIFE

I HAVE ONE FINAL WORD OF ADVICE TO US ALL AS WE JOIN IN YOUR SPECIAL DAY THINK BACK TO WHERE THIS ALL STARTED AND IF YOU ARE EVER TEMPTED TO SAY

“I CAN’T BE BOTHERED TO EXERCISE” “ITS JUST TOO MUCH EFFORT TO START” JUST TAKE A LOOK AT OUR BRIDE AND GROOM AND REMEMBER ITS GOOD FOR YOUR HEART
