Marriage is one thing - weddings are another altogether

Here's something I've never said before and quite probably never will again, but I recently went looking for an episode of RTE's 'Don't Tell The Bride' - and I really enjoyed it. SHARE I found it on RTE Player online after it was recommended by a couple of sources who promised entertainment and a laugh or two, and it certainly didn't disappoint. It was an unusual episode in that it featured two women about to enter a civil partnership, rather than your typical bride and groom preparing for a traditional wedding - and in light of a...

Personally, this is the nominated film that should have won the Best Foreign Language Film, because of its commonality and recognizable expression. After the audacious prologue, the titles are shown over animals in the wild, which in actuality we still are, and... [Lire la suite]

Couple cancels traditional wedding to give back to others

"Shocked and frozen." Those are two words that Mark and Ismini Svensson say perfectly describe their families' reaction to their unique wedding plans. Instead of having a typical ceremony, complete with cake and family photos, the couple chose a different path: To celebrate their love by sharing good deeds across the country with people they'd never met. For past two years, the newlyweds have been spending their wedding budget to perform one act of kindness in each of the 50 states. The Svenssons plan to complete their mission this... [Lire la suite]
