Okay - this may seem a little off the wall, but at work, we broadcast our weddings and citizenship ceremonies on UStream. If you find you are unable to overcome your fear and you can't persuade your wife to take a roadtrip, why not get someone to film it as it's taking place and you can watch it live on the internet?? If there's WiFi, or even if you get a dongle, they can connect to the internet and stream it for you. Even Skype. iPads are really handy for this!!!!! Even smartphones or your basic laptop
I've actually done weddings where it's been 2-way and the friends and relatives in Australia, the Maldives etc. have done readings for the wedding in Scotland and everybody could see and hear everybody else. The worst that happened was there was a 2-minute time delay. Even my son's college graduation in June is being streamed live.
It's not perfect but it's a solution if you can't get round your fear.
