  1. Nick is also still editing his friend’s wedding which took place in Cornwall in May 2009. Judging by how long this is taking to put together it will surely be his finest work yet.
    Those who have been holding their breath in anticipation are on the verge of passing out.

  2. i just felt compelled to comment, as I absolutely love Nige’s comment at the end there, and think it couldn’t have been written better by a publicist…
