23 Nov Would You Get Married In A Cemetery?
We’re sure the idea will appeal to many of you out there but for some the thought of getting hitched in a ceremony could well be the stuff nightmares are made of. If you’re in Wales, however, chances are you could soon have a rather spooky aerial wedding film, following a successful fundraising effort that means that one of the Victorian chapels found in Cathays Cemetery in Cardiff can be renovated, Wales Online reports. Over £31,000 was raised and it is hoped that the chapel will soon be able to hold funeral and wedding services, as well as concerts and film nights. Cabinet member for the environment councillor Bob Derbyshire was quoted by the news source as saying: “I’d like to say a bit thank you to all the businesses and individuals who have offered to donate their money towards the project. Due to their wonderful generosity, the future of the chapel is looking brighter than ever.” If you’re after a wedding ceremony with a difference, a graveyard would certainly be a good choice. No one would expect it, that’s for certain. There’s also a certain element of romanticism about getting hitched in a cemetery – they represent the idea that true love never dies and some couples are sure to find it rather romantic seeing husbands and wives lying next to each other in their graves. Of course, it’s not going to be for everyone but don’t be deterred if it’s your idea of a dream wedding. Your guests may not be as excited by the idea as you are, but they’re sure to still come to your wedding.
