Yesterday, I went to Ade and Sarah’s wedding. Often, British people get married in a Church, but Ade and Sarah didn’t want a religious ceremony, so they chose the registry office in town. The bride looked stunning in her long, white dress and the groom was so handsome in his suit – a beautiful couple! Also in the wedding party were the pageboy, two bridesmaids and the best man. There were lots of family and friends there, too. During the ceremony, the registrar spoke about marriage and Ade and Sarah made promises to each other. One of the bridesmaids read a lovely poem and the couple exchanged rings.  After the wedding, we went to a restaurant for the ‘wedding breakfast’. Normally, breakfast is in the morning, but a wedding breakfast happens after the wedding, usually in the late afternoon. After the meal, the best man and the bride’s dad made speeches. So did Ade. There was music and dancing for the rest of the night. It was wonderful. 

A wedding is an important celebration of the marriage of two people. Watch the video, which describes a typical British wedding, and practise your writing skills as you complete the activities.
