And for Frances Mackenzie, one bride in particular, it soon becomes clear that sometimes the journey is more important than the destination. **** 'Wonderful' - Sunday Express 'Scintillating.' - Woman & Home 'Gloriously entertaining' - Mirror 'Fascinating' - Heat 'Engaging and poignant' - Glasgow Herald 'Irresistible' - Daily Express
