The Royal Wedding this weekend went off without a hitch.
But there was one line in the ceremony that really got our attention - "does anyone object?" Outside of movies and soap operas, where it's now become something of a trope, it's not often heard at weddings.
We ask marriage celebrant Erin Marmont why "speak now or forever hold your peace" is usually scrapped, and why it would be used in the Royal Wedding.
Speaking of weddings, father was best man at a wedding (‘60s)and hired an actor to interrupt the preceedings at the ‘does anyone know a reason..’bit. The actor yelled ‘stop the wedding’ from the back, ran up and upon seeing the couple apologised and said ‘sorry, wrong wedding’— Jeremy (@nz_voter) May 19, 2018
