Somehow it’s appropriate. Maybe it’s because of who and what he is, but the Doctor supposes he should have expected his own wedding to take place in the middle of a crisis, not to mention a combat zone.
River doesn’t seem to mind too much, though he’s sure she would’ve preferred something a bit less rushed and perhaps a little more elegant. She loves wearing nice gowns and she cleans up well. Come to think of it, she’s rather lovely whatever she wears. He should probably tell her that at some point.
Right here and now they’re getting married.
