I recently attended a Lock and Key event at Blue Martini in Brickell.
Though there had been dream-sequence and hoax weddings in the comic books before (as well as marriages in movies and TV shows), this wedding was billed as “The Event of the Century” and featured a ceremony in which the priest was drawn to resemble Jerry Siegel, one of Superman’s co-creators, and the pews were filled with the many artists and writers who had brought the Man of Steel to life over the years. The bride is played by Keira Knightley, the groom by Chiwetel Ejiofor.
They’ve just gotten married in a small London church but somehow have failed to notice that among their guests are three trumpet players, two flutists, three trombonists, and two saxophonists, all of whom pop up from the pews to join a string section, a choir, and the late Lynden David Hall singing “All You Need Is Love.” How is that possible?
On holiday, we will often make love during the day, and we have experimented with Tantric sex, too.’‘All the evidence points to the fact that an active sex life keeps couples together,’ says Dr Geoff Hackett, a leading expert in sexual medicine and former chairman of the British Society for Sexual Medicine.
‘It promotes intimacy, reassurance, the realisation that both parties are wanted and needed.
Charles and Di take the cake, so to speak, for most expensive wedding. In 2013, nude activists Gypsy Taub and Jaymz Smith were married, then fined, at San Francisco’s City Hall.
But right behind them are Vanisha Mittal (daughter of a steel magnate) and Amit Bhatia (British banker), who are said to have spent million in 2005 on Paris nuptials that included invitations mailed in silver boxes, a pre-wedding dinner in the Tuileries, the ceremony itself in a 17th-century chateau, and fireworks over the Eiffel Tower. Joining in the protest of the city’s anti-nudity law, some of the guests followed (non)suit and took their tops off.
As the night unfolded, I began to realize this concept is quite genius!
After watching the crowd (who were all so friendly), they were so much more receptive to one another than the usual club gathering.
My younger brother earned a full ride scholarship at a local college playing football.
My sisters, who were still teenagers, were twins and always dressed alike.
Judging from the popularity of the events (attendance has doubled at each new gathreing) this formula for love seems to be working.
