I was poking around the Canberra Times website looking for anything remotely interesting and found that their “weekend” feature section hadn’t been updated since 2003.
But why would you when it contains this masterpiece of reportage by the wonderfull Renee Cutrupi?
My question to you all is this: How many more exotic “expressions of the self” has the region seen since 2003? What’s the most “interesting” wedding you’ve been to or heard about?
I have to say that I reckon mud cakes at weddings are the height of tackiness.
I went to a themed costume wedding in Sydney a couple of years ago. Everyone had to go dressed as something that started with either F or G (the first letters of the bride and groom’s names). Incidentially, most of the old blokes wore moleskins and gloster shirts declaring themselves as ‘farmers’ or ‘graziers’. But there were a number of ghouls, fairies, etc. They booked-out a small restaurant next to middle harbour and had fancy finger food throughout the reception.
Now, I’ll swap you my prawn cocktail for your vol au vent.
two of my cousins both had somewhat bizarre weddings.
One had a theme of “blue”, and you were all supposed to wear blue. The wedding happened by a creek, the groom wore culottes (?), and the invitation said to wear swimmers. Not many went swimming, but the bride and groom did. No, the wedding wasn’t in Nimbin, but not far away
Another cousin requested everyone wear white tee shirts and red shorts. The reception was a party with stiltwalkers and other such things. They had a maypole, and guests wrote good wishes for them on the ribbons.
Do you pay on the first date?
