Murder Down The Aisle: Mystery in Melbourn!


On Saturday 11th May 2013 I was invited to be a guest at the wedding of celebrities Crystal De Silva and Barry Grey. The ceremony took place at 7.30pm at the United Reform Church Melbourn. The guests arrived in good time, suitably attired in their wedding best posh frocks, high heels, hats and fascinators for the ladies, best suits and jackets for the men. The wedding party started to arrive from 7.15pm and took their seats in the church: meeting and greeting, taking photographs, setting the scene and … giving clues! Exercising her prerogative, the bride, Crystal arrived rather late. The Reverend Emil Loden conducted a very authentic wedding ceremony, pausing occasionally for one of the main wedding party to eulogise about their secrets and their true feelings!


After the ceremony the guests were invited into the beautifully decorated church hall for the wedding reception ... but en route they met a policeman directing them past a covered body! Who could it be and what could have happened?? The main party took their seats at the top table as guests were ushered to their tables. The Reverend explained there had been a murder and guests were invited to partake of the wedding food whilst trying to deduce: Who done it?


What was their motive? What was the murder weapon?


The main wedding party took turns talking to each table, setting alibis, answering questions and acting out scenarios of their relationships - all clues to add to the information provided from ‘newspaper and magazine’ clippings, revealing past secrets, placed on each table.


All the members of the top table became murder suspects - but who done it? Ah …. that would be telling!!


Only one table of guests proved to be worthy sleuths and deduce who done it, their motive and the murder weapon! This was a wedding to remember! It was extremely imaginative, well thought out and very amusing. The audience (wedding guests) were part of the play and each actor impressively stayed in character throughout the questioning!


Well done MADS—another fascinating production! Suzanna
