My Wife is a Del Boy Fan
When my wife and I got married, I knew that I was not the only man in her life. When I tell others that, they just look at me with a bit of shock, but I am totally joking. She has had a mad crush on Del Boy from before I ever came into her life. Since she said yes to my marriage proposal, I had no problem with this infatuation! Before we got married, I did a search for Del Boy lookalike to hire for weddings and corporate events because I wanted to have a lookalike at our wedding if it was at all possible.
I honestly was not sure what I would find, but I was not expecting to find a lookalike that was as convincing as the one who came to our wedding. When he came out at the reception to give us a proper toast, my wife nearly fainted! Okay, it was not that dramatic, but she was excited and happy. The lookalike had a lot of fun with her since he knew about her infatuation with this character, and he had not only the two of us laughing but everyone else at the reception too.
He stayed in character the entire time, and he had charmed himself into many conversations with other fans of the show. Some of my mates thought it would be tacky, but they told me later that the reception was the best because of his antics. I know I will never be able to top that one with any future celebrations concerning my wife, but I don’t really need to either. Having Del Boy at our wedding, giving her a lot of attention, has earned me a lifetime of brownie points with her. And who knows, I may be able to top it one day if she gets a new infatuation with another character!
