I can't get over how dreadful the groom's outfit is in this entry. I'm posting about it here in order to get it off my chest, as otherwise I'd have to comment on the entry, and it would be inappropriate to be negative on such an occasion. But, really, what?!? Despite the fact that it's clearly daylight in that photo, he's wearing a parody of evening dress. He's paired a white bow-tie with what appears to be a dinner jacket. The jacket doesn't fit him, and the tie has gone horriby wrong. Part of the problem is that having added to the eccentricity of his look by wearing a wing-tip collar, he's tucked the tips behind the tie, which rather defeats the point of having them. Even so, I doubt that a real tie could be persuaded to stick out at that angle, so I suspect that it's a pre-tied tie which for some reason he's wearing two sizes too large.

It's a pity, when the visual records will be so important.

I wonder if the priest here wears DJ and bow tie for weddings, as he does for funerals?

The easiest thing to do is hire a complete set of gear for the male section of the wedding party, as my cousin did - getting married in an 18th-century mansion, he decided to have matching historical costume and was resplendent in gold brocade. Cost much more than is sensible, though.
