Clue number 2 states: "No bride has the same first-name or last-name initial as her groom."

Now look at your solution on page 103.

Morning, Leslie Kearn and Troy Bunn
Afternoon, Tanya Brown and Keith Tiddle
Evening, Kim Torrens and Levi Kent


Tanya has the same initial as Mr Tiddle, and Kim has the same initial as Mr Kent.

I am guessing that you wanted to say that "No bride's first-name initial is the same as her groom's first-name initial, and no bride's last-name initial is the same as her groom's last name initial." But your original sentence does not convey this and is misconstrued as "neither initial is the same".

Please find a ruler and rap your copy editor, ever so lightly, over his/her knuckles.

Lots of love
