2020’s best for new couples

When Justin Bieber said “I do” to Hailey Baldwin, he decided to gift himself. He flashed a yellow-gold Audemars Piguet Royal Oak watch on Instagram worth roughly $50,000.

When Angelina Jolie tied the knot with Brad Pitt, she presented him with a 1952 Patek Philippe platinum chronometer worth as much as $4 million.

Queen Elizabeth II also clocked in with the perfect wedding present. She gave Princess Diana an elegant Vacheron Constantin diamond bracelet watch to mark her marriage to Prince Charles — the same timepiece the queen received as a gift on her own wedding day in 1947.

But it’s not just celebrities who rely on watches to get them to the church on time. Keepsake pieces (from your parents, your partner or yourself) have become a popular wedding present across income levels, according to Paul Boutros, head of watches for the Americas at auction house Phillips.

Hurricane Delta sped up one Louisiana couple’s wedding by a few days, but judging by the smiles on the bride and groom, it certainly didn’t dampen the affair.

Ian and Taylor Gaspard from Abbeville were supposed to get married Saturday, Oct. 10, with 300 people to wish them well inside the Saint Mary Magdalen Church, a scenic brick building in the town’s center surrounded by green lawn and oak trees.

But Hurricane Delta had other plans.

For Couples Who Postponed Weddings, the ‘Non-Wedding Day’ Holds Sentimental Value

Francisca Concha had other plans for June 27. In a perfect world, she would have enjoyed dinner with family on the deck of a boat cruising through canals in the Netherlands after marrying her partner of three years, Vincent. They would’ve ended the day with friends at a bar toasting their new life as a married couple. But instead, when the day rolled around, Concha, 32, and Vincent, 30, ate cake and champagne for breakfast in their two bedroom apartment while quarantining in the U.K., where they live. “We are known for cracking open a bottle of champagne for no particular reason,” Concha says, “so it seemed like the right thing to do.”

It’s a relationship milestone they’ll never forget. As the coronavirus forced the cancellation of large social gatherings, many couples made adjustments—from Zoom weddings to miniaturized, socially-distanced ceremonies—while others, who delayed their nuptials until next year or beyond,

Delta speeds up couple’s nuptials

ABBEVILLE, La. (AP) — Hurricane Delta sped up one Louisiana couple’s wedding by a few days but judging by the smiles on the bride and groom it certainly didn’t dampen the affair.

Ian and Taylor Gaspard from Abbeville were supposed to get married on Saturday, Oct. 10 with 300 people to wish them well inside the Saint Mary Magdalen Church, a scenic brick building in the town’s center surrounded by green lawn and oak trees.

But Hurricane Delta had other plans.

After watching the hurricane slowly make its way toward Louisiana — and after a few of what Taylor describes as bridal hysterics — they swiftly changed gears and held the wedding at the church on Thursday with friends and family in attendance. The skies were grey but the rain held off while the wedding party gathered. The streets outside were largely deserted as residents finished up last-minute storm preparations

Indian-Origin Couple’s Drive-In Wedding To Bypass Covid Guest Limit Rule In UK

Under the UK guidelines, only 15 people are allowed to be part of wedding ceremonies.

London:

 An Indian-origin couple, keen not to delay their wedding plans despite a strict restriction on the number of guests allowed to assemble under England’s coronavirus lockdown rules, are celebrating this week after pulling off a first-of-its-kind drive-in wedding near London.

Londoners Roma Popat and Vinal Patel were originally due to get married on April 20 but when lockdown disrupted their plans, they discussed the concept of a drive-in wedding with their wedding coordinator, Saheli Events, almost as a tongue-in-cheek thought rather than a serious plan.

However, what began as a joke became a reality last Friday, when the couple were married in front of a small gathering of their immediate family with the ceremony being projected onto a big screen in a field next door to friends and family seated in more than 100

Police raid happy couple’s wedding reception packed with 170 guests

A wedding venue has been ordered to close and the manager slapped with a £10,000 fine after hosting a reception with 170 guests.

Grand Park Hall in Luton was raided by police on September 23 following reports of crowds breaching Covid-19 restrictions.

At the time, weddings were allowed just 30 guests – a number that has now been reduced to 15.

The venue is the latest in a string of coronavirus-defying parties to be shut down by police  – including a 120-person strong wedding party in Telford and a 70-person event in Manchester last week.

Those events also saw organisers slapped with £10,000 for breaking the rules.
