Back in August 2009 they invited Poplar MP Jim Fitzpatrick to their wedding at the London Muslim Centre - even though they had never met him. Mr Fitzpatrick, although he had never met the happy couple, accepted.

Following the link to the Evening Standard made things a bit clearer for me:

The wedding of barrister Bodrul Islam to investment banker Mahbuba Kamali

I think the reason why he was invited and why he accepted is more understandable if we know what type of constituents the happy couple were. They are introduced to the local MP socially and he is introduced to two potential contributors to campaign funds (the article notes both bride and groom were from Labour supporting families).

Except it didn't quite work out like that.

Bloody useless Typepad.
