Get me to the church on time

Photographer Trevor Yurbury Ok so should brides be late for their ‘big day’?

Well tradition says they must, however this can do nothing for the grooms nerves! Not only does the groom nervously check his watch (some have been known to take them off and shake them) but also the registrar, vicar, photographer and just about everyone else.

Some local traditions even deliberately try to slow the progress of the bride to church, as in Wales, where country weddings are renounced for ‘unforeseen’ obstacles between the brides home and church.

So yes while tradition is a good thing then better to be just a moment or two late, than any lengthy delay as this eats into other timings throughout the day.
 
After all a wedding day is a hectic time with tight schedules and lots of emotion, so stick to the clock and have a great day.

Wedding Trivia: RING
Rings were used as currency in the Middle East prior to the advent of coinage and were a sign of a persons wealth. In ancient times the wedding ring was thought to protected the bride from "evil spirits". Ancient Roman wedding rings were made of iron. In early Rome a gold band came to symbolize everlasting love and commitment in marriage. Roman wedding rings were carved with two clasped hands. Very early rings had a carved key through which a woman was thought to be able to open her husband's heart.
