What's the Mystery Here?
Cast your mind back to Thursday 16th May 2019, and to St Geraldine's church where a rehearsal for the wedding of Tony Harper and Claire Jeffreys is taking place. Assmebled with the bride and groom are:-
Tony's oldest friend Mike Colley, the best man
Philip Jeffreys, father of the bride
Karen Jeffreys, mother of the bride
Ian Harper, the groom's brother
Caroline Jeffreys, the bride’s sister
The bride’s closest friend Paula Jones the chief bridesmaid
The vicar of St Geraldine's, Rev Neil Childs
As you might imagine, this being a murder mystery, there are undercurrents of tensions within the party, and at least one person doesn't live happily ever after.
The murder mystery event also needs a Narrator to act as master of ceremonies.
