Love is the most wonderful thing on earth! Two people meet each other and crown their love with marriage. The final act of love! Let me introduce myself. I’m Ann and I’m going to tell the story about my wedding.

My wedding was two months ago. The first decision to be made was whether we wanted a church or civil ceremony. A civil wedding meant going to the local registry office, along with two witnesses for the ceremony.

My friend Ellen said she had never seen such a lovely weeding before. Traditional wedding customs on my wedding included the well known English rhyme which went like this: ‘’ Something Old, something New, something Borrowed and something Blue.’’ One of my first tasks as a bride was to choose my bridesmaids. Their job was to help me during my wedding preparations. After my bridesmaids had helped me in choosing my wedding dress I assisted them in choosing their outfits. Before Ellen bought the dress for my wedding party she had read the book of ‘’superstitions’’. White, blue, silver and gold are considered the luckiest shades. Nothing black, green, brown, purple should be worn by the bride;

Married in white, You have chosen a right.

Married in blue, Your lover is true.

Married in pink, Your fortunes will sink.

Married in green, You will not long be seen.

Married in red, You`ll wish you were dead.

Married in yellow, Ashamed of the fellow.

Married in brown, You`ll live out of town.

Married in grey, You`ll live far away.

Married in black, You`ll wish you were back.

After we had decided on our guest list we sent invitations and booked the wedding cars, organized the reception, sent for the photographer and bought flowers. When we chose the church, the minister advised us on the form of service, choice of hymns and wedding music. 

I and my future husband Thomas decided on the song which we heard when we first met.

After the wedding ceremony I threw the bouquet and…. who caught it?! Ellen, of course!

This is what the groom Thomas said about the same occasion. I remember when I had first seen Ann. I had been very nervous that day. I had lost my job and had to return some money to my friend. While I was walking in the rain I suddenly saw Ann with beautiful blonde curls sliding along her neck and face, big blue eyes as a big blue sea…the moment was perfect…I heard the wedding bells in my head.

I chose Charles to be my best man. Charles organized the ‘’Stag night’’. Like most people, we didn’t know the origin of the customs for such a night but we knew some of the most popular ideas for Stag night activities like ‘’Go Kart Racing (indoor or outdoor), Paintball, Overnight ferry trip..’’. Charles chose the last one.

Before we went to the honeymoon we had opened our presents (now you probably know what we did on our first wedding night as a newlywed couple). We spent our honeymoon in Paris where we enjoyed the first days of our marriage. We had never felt better!
