The English wedding ceremony is like in church and they stand at the altar and
exchange they're vows to each other and like theyre family sit at the stands and
watch and they have like a bit of it if any of the audience know if they shouldn't be
like married and after they normally have like a honey moon and stuff like that
they also have a wedding cake and they cut it and all that.
The vows are
to have and to hold
from this day forward
for better, for worse,
for richer, for poorer,
in sickness and in health,
to love and to cherish,
till death do us part
With my body I honour you,
all that I am I give to you,
and all that I have I share with you,
within the love of God,
Father, Son and Holy Spirit.
