One of my adult students, Sunny [below right], invited me and the family to his son's wedding yesterday. It was quite far away, but he was keen for us to attend, so we went along. There were about 500 people there for a brief ceremony (largely ignored by the audience) and a meal. For many it just seemed an excuse to smoke and get drunk.
The most memorable part of the wedding was the music choices! Beforehand, Black-eyed Peas' "Where is the Love?" was played on repeat! Were they trying to say something? The groom entered to Taylor Swift's "Shake it off", and the bride to David Bowie's "Starman"?! The parents came in to The Carpenters' "Desperado" and the couple left at the end to Oasis's "Don't look back in anger". I kid you not! Irony?
