You don’t often see cricket bats at weddings. It should happen more often.

Knocked in with felt tip

This wasn’t a normal wedding though. This was the wedding of Miriam and Jrod of Cricket With Balls.

They were married at The Oval and the groom wore cricket whites.

Mike Gatting wasn't receiving the King Cricket email when he dropped that ludicrously easy chance against India in 1993.


Why risk it when it's so easy to sign up?


  1. That’s a Warsop Stebbing, by cripes. And are those Duracel batteries in the top corner? And, yes, a Staedtler Textsurfer Triplus felt tip pen. My goodness, this really was a wedding of quality!

    Oh, wait a minute. That looks like Australian red wine.

  2. you know, for some reason this has suddenly reminded me of the nihilists with a cricket bat in The Big Lebowski. that was cool… the marmot even more so.

  3. Bert – you missed the Marlboro cigs packet, crushed & aesthetically arranged by Suave. That’s possibly my glasses case in there too!

  4. yay! yay!

    Bert, the pen in fact came in a packet of about 12, from Poundland.

    Also, the bat has a personalised sticker on the other side, with our names and the date.

  5. I have no wish to sound churlish and I proffer my sincere congratulations to the newlyweds.

    However, much as I can accept theargument that it is unusual to see a cricket bat at a wedding, a wedding is not a place.

    The Oval is a place.

    It is NOT unusual to see a cricket bat at the Oval.

  6. I didn’t get invited though Alex, but I’m not bitter. They just better keep away from any spinning wheels though

  7. The bat is a fabulous idea, Miriam. I only wish that I’d thought to have a personalised cricket bat at my wedding, plus of course a bride who would have allowed a personalised cricket bat at her wedding. Ah well.
