What is so lucky about a shoe? Why a wedding breakfast, and is the pre-nuptial contract a new idea?In Britain today the celebration of a marriage in the traditional manner is a mixture of something old, something new and something borrowed from other traditions. It is bound up with church and secular legislation, and with custom and superstition.Discovering the Folklore and Traditions of Marriage looks at the ways that marriages are celebrated in multicultural Britain - and how these traditions are similar to or different from those around the world - and how the practices of the past are observed, and sometimes altered, for contemporary times.
