Our three weddings.
Marriage was not something either of us believed in – so we had three.
We believed that the only real commitment was our love for each other. We had no need for a wedding.
However, we were aware that our parents did not quite share the same view. As Liz’s parents were not talking to me we thought a marriage might break the ice, build the bridges, douse the fire, patch things up and a host of other clichés.
Needless to say it failed spectacularly on the friendly repair side.
I can’t think why?
So we organised a Buddhist wedding, a registry office wedding and a Pagan Wedding in Windsor Park complete with Maypole on May 1st. Mayday was Liz’s 21st birthday. It felt appropriate. It seemed a bit of a laugh, an excuse to bring all our friends together and a way of appeasing parents and relatives.
Two out of three’s not bad!
