Virginia Woolf in Church of St Bartholomew the Great, Smithfield, London - 13 October, 1932
from The diary of Virginia Woolf, page 128:
It was an odd sight - Desmond with Rachel on his arm. [...] They hauled a dilapidated bishop up by the armpits to give the blessing which he did in a trembling overemphatic voice, as if he were scrubbing the heads of David & Rachel as he called them. Then a sort of inner play went forward behind glass doors...Then a dribble back of relatives. Then the Wagner wedding march.
