Response 1 (Script)

Being the recluse that I am, I rarely attend any weddings. The few I have attended have been splendid, though. It sort of makes me nervous about whether or not I'll be able to handle the entire social and planning aspect of my own wedding. I attended the wedding of an old high school friend who I was not very communicative with but was on pleasant terms, nonetheless.

The majority of the Muslim community from our town and the next had attended the wedding, which makes it no surprise that I was not looking forward to having to make an entry into the vicinity with all those people watching. The hall I entered with my family was decorated in white and a slight bit of gold and pink. The flowers that decorated the interior were arranged in white clumps, which looked lovely. Making our way to a table that someone had shown us to, we took our seats and helped ourselves to the refreshments offered as we anticipated the arrival of the lovely couple. The refreshments included sweetmeats and savoury treats. Upon catching sight of the couple, I immediately had my phone at the ready in order to take videos and pictures of their proceedings. The first order of business was the ring donning. The groom made a spectacular show of going on one knee and offering the bride a bouquet of flowers after he'd placed the wedding ring on her finger.

Holding hands, the couple then proceeded to walk down the aisle in the centre of the room towards their seats situated at the front of the hall. The food courses were served thereafter, which looked and tasted good, though I did not eat much. After eating, I approached the couple in order to congratulate them and wish them well in their marriage. After the majority of the attendants had eaten, exchanged pleasantries and taken photos with the couple, the bride and groom cut their wedding cake and fed it to each other, as tradition seems to dictate. After taking a satisfying amount of pictures and videos, my family and I bid the couple farewell and made our exit.

That wedding was an all-around pleasant one, with beautiful people and a particularly beautiful couple. I wish them the happiest of marriages.

Thank you.
