What makes a good wedding?
by Alice Quine, Assistant Curator
Our recent exhibition on Jewish weddings generated some
rather interesting and often unbridled feedback from visitors. A wedding
canopy, or Huppah, was constructed in the exhibition space where people could write about their favourite wedding experiences or what they think makes for a memorable marriage ceremony. Some of our favourites are featured below.
For some the most important element was the people (or creatures) getting married
And a very popular priority for a good time was a decent spread and an open bar
While others cherished the moments that came on their wedding day and beyond
The exhibition garnered a surprising number of reflective responses
With some opinions expressed more subtly than others
And yet the overwhelming majority of notes were of love and happiness
