It's the big day. You're wearing a beautiful white dress, holding a large bouquet of flowers, and walking down the isle in an inflatable church. Wait, rewind.
walking down the isle in an inflatable church'.
Yes, you did read correctly.
To celebrate the year in which same-sex marriage became legal, the Southbank Centre is holding a Big Wedding Weekend on the 30th & 31st August. It is a chance for couples (gay or straight) to renew their vows at the Royal Festival Hall, with music performed on one of the most impressive organs in the world, along with choirs and fanfares.
The Clore Ballroom will be holding a big feast, and out on the Riverside Terrace Nicky Miles hosts a Strictly Come Dancing Wedding with lessons, big bands, and professional demonstrations. There will also be a Wedding Olympics, which includes training in how to throw or catch a bouquet.
Make it an excuse to get into your wedding dress or suit again, and have your wedding photo taken for a second time. And if you had to flip a coin to see who would be your best man, give the runner up a chance to have his turn, and let him give a best man's speech.
The main attraction is the forty-five foot inflatable church, complete with vicar, bridesmaids, mother-in-law, and a unique Festival of Love wedding certificate.
