the spirit of modern marriage

IN the 25 years since Four Weddings and a Funeral captured the essence of the English wedding, most of what’s involved in getting hitched remains remarkably unchanged. Over the coming months, modern-day Charleses, Carries and Fionas—or Orlandos, Willows and Zaras, as their successors are more likely to be called—will be doing exactly the same things in similar outfits. There will be a new generation of Duckfaces, flamboyant friends and furtive couples enjoying impromptu liaisons in B&Bs (or, more likely, Airbnbs) with, doubtless, the same thrills, spills and high drama.As in the film, there will be plenty of variations on a theme: nuptials in different locations, seasons and styles, but all with the same time-honoured traditions at their core. The adherence to a religious- or civil-marriage format is an example…

You’ve been framed INFRARED cameras at the Lower Mill estate, a lakeside development in Somerford Keynes, Gloucestershire, have captured the busy nightlife of local residents—of the wildlife variety. Shot over the course of a few hours, the footage shows an otter catch and eat part of a fish, the remains of which then go on to feed a fox, a rat, a moorhen and a water rail.‘Right in the middle of the development, we have these five different species, each with varying habitat requirements, all making use of every last scrap of a single fish,’ says Dr Phoebe Carter, Lower Mill’s chief ecologist. ‘Regular wildlife surveys show us the huge variety of species we have at the estate, including many of conservation concern.Seeing a handful of these captured so…

THE simple things give me the greatest pleasure. Having the stone slabs of the terrace jet-sprayed to a burnished glow has lit up the garden. I intend to order even more snowdrops, as the sense of resurrection they inspire at this time of year is heartwarming—it’s not possible to have too many. I’m anticipating next year already.I have recently spent my money on things that I use all the time. I bought the finest shaving brush you can find in London. Yes, it was expensive, but I shave every day. I have purchased better pillows, too, because I spend a third of my life sleeping on them.My son Charlie has set himself the target of reading a book a week and that seems a good idea to support. Anna…

BY common consent over the past few days, our long-standing loyalty to Today on Radio 4 has wavered. We want to hear the news, but, sometimes, the painstaking analysis of political paralysis is too depressing to bear first thing in the morning.The marvel of the BBC, of course, is that you can tune down by degrees and, according to your mood and taste, listen to several further and very different radio stations. According to the family, I never descend far enough down the channels. My riposte is that, until I’m beaten to the breakfast table, the choice will be mine.Of course, control of the radio counts for surprisingly little at breakfast time in our house. At present, one of the children is rehearsing for a local musical called David…
