The Internet gets into every walk of life these days. One of the latest additions to the plethora of sites is World Wide Wed, dedicated – as its name suggests – to the happiest occasion in many people’s lives. It has caused much merriment in the Design Week office. Not only was it created by regular contributors to the magazine Yolanda Zappaterra and Paul Murphy, but the first wedding to feature on the site is that of DW’s news editor Andy Gilgrist to his blushing bride, Fiona. Those wishing to view candid photographs from the ceremony and subsequent party – including such gems as the groom without his trousers on – should visit www.liketv.com/wedding.
