so proud to have the support of ForgottenLtd + One Minute Briefs creative geniuses when Rishi Sunak + the UK government failed to give fair support to me + millions of other businesses + individuals during the pandemic. GO CHECK TODAY'S OMB!

Today's One Minute Briefs campaign is to create posters to promote Chris Barber Photography in support of ForgottenLtd after #100days of Lockdown

Chris is a fun, wedding photographer who has been left without work & is one of the #ForgottenLTD, including ourselves, affected by a lack of government support.

So, we're hoping to help raise his morale and profile during such a difficult time.

NOT SEEING EACH OTHER BEFORE THE WEDDING: EXPLAINED 云

尹 ONCE AGAIN, THIS IS ANOTHER TRADITION THAT ORIGINATES FROM SOMETHING HORRIFIC, YET WE STILL CONTINUE TO HONOUR IT + I STILL CONTINUE TO LOL ABOUT IT.

WEVE ALREADY ESTABLISHED THAT (AT ONE TIME) THE BRIDES FAMILY WOULD SELL THEIR DAUGHTER TO MARRY A MAN FROM A WEALTHY FAMILY. THE VEIL ACTED AS THE BIG RE-VEIL (SORRY) BUT NOT SEEING THE BRIDE AT ALL BEFORE THE WEDDING WAS A CAREFULLY CONSTRUCTED PLAN BY THE BRIDES FAMILY TO AVOID THE GROOM CALLING OFF THE WHOLE WEDDING. THE THEORY WAS THAT THE GROOM WOULD BE LESS LIKELY TO CALL OFF THE WEDDING MID-CEREMONY IF HE DIDNT FIND HER ATTRACTIVE.

TO BE CLEAR匈T WAS BASICALLY A TAKE ME OUT/BLIND DATE MASH UP WITH A TWIST OF SLAVERY + WITHOUT CILLA SCREAMING SURPRISE, SURPRISE WHEN THE GROOM EVENTUALLY SEES THE BRIDE.

IVE TRIED TO MAKE LIGHT OF ALL THESE AWFUL TRADITIONS OVER THE LAST FEW WEEKS BUT I THINK ITD BE WRONG TO NOT ADDRESS THE FACT THAT YOU CAN DO WHAT THE ABSOLUTE F**K YOU WANT AT YOUR WEDDING + YOU DONT HAVE TO CONFORM TO ACTING OUT THESE OUT-DATED, DARK, TEDIOUS, IMPERSONAL, SEXIST, SUPERSTITIOUS, COMPLETELY RANDOM PERFORMANCES, WHICH WE DISGUISE AS TRADITION.

MORE FAMILIES BLESSINGS + SUPPORT, LESS WOMEN BEING GIVEN TO MAN + LESS HONOURING TRADITIONS THAT ORIGINATES FROM DARK PLACES THAT HAVE NO PLACE AT WEDDINGS IN 2019.

ROFLCOPTER.

HORSESHOES AS GIFTS: EXPLAINED

AUNTIE KAREN SAW IT IN CLINTONS + SHE BOUGHT IT. SHE DOESNT KNOW WHY SHE BOUGHT IT BUT A POPULAR THEORY IS THAT AUNTIE KAREN MIGHT BE ONE OF THE EVIL SPIRITS WEVE PREVIOUSLY IDENTIFIED + SHES IMPLYING THAT YOURE A HORSE.

HORSESHOES RESEMBLE THE SHAPE OF A CRESCENT MOON, WHICH SYMBOLISES FERTILITY. ITS A BIT LIKE GIVING BRIDES A TADPOLE BECAUSE ITS SHAPED LIKE SPERM + THAT SHAPE REPRESENTS BABIES. ACTUALLY THATS A PRETTY GOOD IDEA. YOU HEARD IT HERE FIRST, AUNTIE KAREN...SPERM FROGS IN, HORSE TROTTERS OUT.

慚IRST DANCE - EXPLAINED 云

WE CELEBRATE THE HAPPY COUPLES FIRST ACT THROUGH THE MEDIUM OF UNWANTED ATTENTION + AWKWARD COME + SAVE US FROM OURSELVES HAND GESTURES, CUNNINGLY DISGUISED AS A FIRST DANCE.

THE TRADITION OF THE FIRST DANCE GOES BACK HUNDREDS OF YEARS, DESPITE THE FIRST-DANCE-CLICHE OF RULE THE WORLD BY TAKE THAT ONLY BEING AROUND FOR THE LAST 13 YEARS.

汽HE FIRST DANCE IS USUALLY FOLLOWED BY A FATHER-DAUGHTER DANCE吏R THE DJ JUST LAUNCHES STRAIGHT INTO EVERYONES FAVOURITE SECOND SONG - IVE GOT A FEELING BY THE BLACK EYED PEAS.

不 THE FIRST DANCE ORIGINATES FROM WHEN ROYAL BALLS WERE AN ACTUAL THING + IT WAS ALL A BIG WILLY WAVING SESH WHERE THEYD SHOW OFF THEIR MAD DANCE SKILLS. CONVENIENTLY THEY DANCED THE WALTZ. SO YOU COULD SAY THAT THEY DID THE WILLY WAVE WALTZ BUT I WOULDNT SAY THAT BECAUSE IM LITERALLY ALMOST 30 + I DEFINITELY WOULDNT FIND THAT FUNNY. NOT ONE BIT.

仄儭 ANYWAY吁OMEHOW SOMEONE THOUGHT ITD BE A BANGIN IDEA TO INCORPORATE THIS BS INTO WEDDINGS + NOW ITS A THING THAT COUPLES THINK THEY HAVE TO DO划VEN IF THEY CANT DANCE.

SALMON THROWING: EXPLAINED 云

SALMON THROWING HAS NEVER BEEN A WEDDING TRADITION ANYWHERE IN THE WORLD BECAUSE THAT WOULD BE LUDICROUS BUT YOU MUST REMEMBER THAT WE *DO* THROW RICE AT PEOPLE DURING A WEDDING SO ADDING SALMON TO THE EQUATION WOULD AT LEAST MAKE SENSE TO FANS OF SUSHI.

IF YOU HAVE EVER THROWN SALMON AT A WEDDING OR PLAN TO THROW SALMON AT A WEDDING (OR FOR ANY OCCASION) IN THE THE NEAR FUTURE, PLEASE LET ME KNOW IN THE COMMENTS + EXPLAIN YOUR OWN PERSONAL REASONS FOR TOSSING SALMON...

SOMETHING OLD, NEW, BORROWED + BLUE: EXPLAINED 云

SOMETHING OLD WARDS OFF THE EVIL EYE WHICH NATURALLY CAUSES INFERTILITY (STRAIGHT IN THERE WITH THE FERTILITY THREATS). NOWADAYS, FAMILIES USUALLY PASS ON AN HEIRLOOM...PRESUMABLY WITH THE HOPE OF BOOSTING THEIR DAUGHTERS CHANCES OF GETTING IMPREGNATED. PERHAPS THE BRIDE COULD WEAR HER DADS EXPIRED VIAGRA PILL AS A NECKLACE PENDANT BUT IM NOT AN EXPERT SO TAKE THAT AS YOU WILL. OR DONT. 把

SOMETHING NEW SYMBOLISES OPTIMISM FOR THE FUTURE SO NATURIST WEDDINGS REALLY ARE MY NICHE AFTER-ALL. SOMETHING NEW CAN LITERALLY BE ANY SH*T YOU GOT SUCKED INTO BUYING OFF ETSY OR WHATEVER SO UNLESS YOURE ACTIVELY TRYING TO BE PESSIMISTIC ABOUT THE FUTURE OF YOUR MARRIAGE THEN YOU PROBABLY ALREADY TICKED THIS TOTALLY UNNECESSARY BOX.

此儭 SOMETHING BORROWED BRINGS GOOD LUCK, PRESUMING YOURE BORROWING IT FROM A HAPPILY MARRIED PERSON + HAVENT JUST STOLEN IT.

TAKE A DEEP BREATHE. NOW PROCESS THIS NEXT SENTENCE SLOWLY...WORD BY WORD...

丐 SOMETHING BORROWED GENUINELY DERIVES FROM WHEN BRIDES WOULD BORROW THE UNDERGARMENTS OF A RELATIVE WHOS HAD GOOD FERTILITY FORTUNE. YUM.

(*NOTE TO SELF: PITCH FERTILITY FORTUNE AS THE NAME OF AN AMAZING NEW REALITY TV SHOW)

尿 OBVIOUSLY BLUE REPRESENTS LOVE, PURITY + FIDELITY SO WEARING SOMETHING BLUE (LIKE A BIG BLUE BOWLER BONNET, POUR EXAMPLE) WOULD BE A GREAT EVIL SPIRIT DETERRENT. IT JUST DEPENDS ON HOW SERIOUSLY YOU WANNA FEND OFF THAT RUDDY EVIL EYE.

MORE BLUE = MORE LOVE, PURITY + FIDELITY. THE LESS BLUE = A MARRIAGE FULL OF HATRED, SIN, FILTH + ORGYS. YOUR CHOICE. ITS PERSONAL TASTE. SOME PEOPLE ARENT INTO A BIT OF BLUE...

CEREMONY STANDING POSITION: EXPLAINED 云

HAVE YOU EVER WONDERED WHY DOES THE BRIDE STAND ON THE LEFT DURING THE CEREMONY?

NO? ME NEITHER. DO WE CARE? 匈 GUESS WE CAN JUST PRETEND FOR THE DURATION OF THIS 4/10 CAPTION.

儭 THIS IS A WIDELY PRACTISED TRADITION THAT REGISTRARBOTS ARE PROGRAMMED TO SAY AT THE END OF ALMOST EVERY WEDDING. ITS THEIR BIG PUNCH LINE SO BIG SHOUT OUT TO THEM FOR THIS WEAK DOSE OF WEDDING WISDOM.

儭 BRIDES STAND ON THE LEFT BECAUSE TRADITIONALLY THE GROOM WOULDVE CAPTURED THE BRIDE + WOULD NEED TO KEEP HIS SWORD HAND FREE TO DEFEND HER FROM GETTING KIDNAPPED AS THEY LEFT THE CEREMONY. A BIT LIKE HOW A SHOPLIFTER WOULD DEFEND A SUPER MARKET TROLLY BUT ALSO ABSOLUTELY NOTHING LIKE THAT.

ITS ALL SUPER FUN + DEFINITELY NOT ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF US CONTINUING TO HONOUR A TRADITION WITH DODGY ORIGINS THAT SHOULDVE STOPPED AROUND THE SAME TIME WE STOPPED *KIDNAPPING* WOMAN FOR A BIT OF MARRIAGE. MORE ON THIS ANOTHER TIME WHEN I WILL PROBS OFFEND JUST ABOUT EVERYONE WHOS EVER GOT MARRIED...

儭 I SHOULD EXPLAIN THAT A SWORD HAND IS THE HAND THAT A GROOM WOULD HOLD A SWORD WITH. NOT AN INNUENDO + THIS WASNT SOME KIND OF BADASS PRE-HAND-EVOLUTION STAGE WHERE GROOMS WERE EDWARD-SCISSOR-HAND-WEDDING-NINJAS SO PLEASE JUST GET THAT WEIRD IDEA OUT OF YOUR HEAD, MMMKAY?

儭 ANYWAY...ENJOY THIS PHOTO THATS TOTALLY IRRELEVANT TO THE CAPTION.

THROWING THE BOUQUET: EXPLAINED 云

DO YOU LIKE TOSSING? DO YOU LIKE BOUQUETS? WELL TODAY IM GOING TO BE SPARKING JOY BY EXPLAINING WHAT HAPPENS WHEN YOU COMBINE TWO RANDOM THINGS THAT SOMEHOW OCCUR SIMULTANEOUSLY.

THE ANCIENT ART OF BLINDLY CHUCKING A HEAVY FLORAL OBJECT ORIGINATES FROM WHEN FEMALE GUESTS WOULD LITERALLY RIP OFF PARTS OF THE BRIDES DRESS, VEIL, FLOWERS + HAIR (!!) LIKE A BUNCH OF ABSOLUTE F**KING SAVAGES.

公儭THESE DAYS... THE ABSOLUTE F**KING SAVAGES REFRAIN FROM RIPPING OUT PARTS OF THE BRIDES INTERNAL ORGANS ETC + INSTEAD ATTEMPT TO CATCH THE BRIDES BOUQUET FOR EPIC LOLZ. USUALLY, ALL THE SINGLE LADIES (+ MEN, DAMNIT) FORM AROUND THE POTENTIAL LANDING ZONE. THE TOSSER (ALSO KNOWN AS THE BRIDE) EXPERTLY LOBS THE BOUQUET OVER HER HEAD LIKE A CHILD THAT DIDNT QUALIFY FOR SPORTS-DAY.

亢 THE PERSON WHO CATCHES IT IS BASICALLY THE ONE WHOS SUPPOSEDLY NEXT TO GET INFECTED WITH A MARRIAGE.

扔 SOMETIMES, NOBODY CATCHES IT + THAT BASICALLY MEANS THAT ALL THE SINGLE FRIENDS ARE DESTINED FOR A LIFE OF INFINITE LONELINESS + REGRET THAT THEY DIDNT TRY HARDER IN P.E.

IF THE BOUQUET IS CAUGHT, THE PERSON WHO CATCHES IT THEN HAS TO RECALIBRATE THEIR ENTIRE LIFE PLAN, FIND A PARTNER + GET MARRIED TO SOMEONE BECAUSE THEY ONCE CAUGHT AN ARRANGEMENT OF FLOWERS THAT WERE HURTLING THROUGH THE AIR BY COMPLETE CHANCE.

YOU MIGHT THINK THAT THIS IS A RIDICULOUS WAY TO LIVE YOUR LIFE BUT YOURE WRONG. ITS ACTUALLY TOTALLY LOGICAL + ITS JUST ANOTHER EXAMPLE OF HOW WEDDING TRADITIONS KEEP THE WEDDING INDUSTRY ALIVE. IF NOBODY CAUGHT BOUQUETS THEN NOBODY WOULD GET MARRIED + I WOULD BE UNEMPLOYED.

返CUTTING THE CAKE EXPLAINED 云

蚪ACK IN THE ABSOLUTE RAVE CAPITAL THAT WAS ANCIENT ROME, THE WEDDING CAKE USED TO GET SMASHED OVER THE BRIDES HEAD AFTER THE WEDDING. 五不

﹗HESE DAYS, ITS EASIER TO DISTRIBUTE CAKE BY CUTTING IT WITH A COMEDY-SIZED KNIFE, WHILST STARING INTO CAMERAS WITH A LOOK THAT CAN ONLY BE DESCRIBED AS A MIXTURE OF SHEER TERROR, DAZED CONFUSION + INTERNAL DESPAIR

廊OU CAN CUT CRINGY ATMOSPHERE WITH A KNIFE BUT YOU CANT CUT CAKE WITH CRINGY ATMOSPHERE - ALTHOUGH THAT WOULD BE A GREAT CAKE.

儭THERES A COMMON MYTH THAT IS DISTRIBUTED BY OUR-FRIENDS-BUT-ACTUALLY-JUST-A-CORPORATE-WEDDING-MACHINE AT THEKNOT.COM WHO SAY FAMILY, FRIENDS + PHOTOGRAPHERS ALIKE LOOK FORWARD TO THE MOMENT THE COUPLE()CUTS THE FIRST SLICE

IM NOT AFRAID TO SAY IT再S A PHOTOGRAPHER + RELATIVELY NORMAL FUNCTIONING HUMAN BEING匈 DONT GET EXCITED ENOUGH ABOUT STABBING A CAKE TO WARANT IT REQUIRING A DJ-STYLE COUNTDOWN WHILST THE WHOLE ORDEAL IS PHOTOGRAPHED.

WHY WOULD *ANYONE* LOOK FORWARD TO THAT?! OBVS I LOOK FORWARD TO CAKE BUT I HAVE LITERALLY NEVER GOT EXCITED ABOUT WATCHING SOMEONE CUT IT JUST LIKE HOW I LOVE WATCHING NETFLIX BUT IVE NEVER FELT THE NEED TO PHOTOGRAPH MYSELF PICKING UP THE REMOTE.

仄儭 IT JUST SEEMS LIKE A REALLY STRANGE THING TO MAKE CEREMONIOUS + THE SOONER WE ALL JUST GO BACK TO SMASHING CAKES OVER BRIDES HEADS - THE BETTER. 休

THE WEDDING BREAKFAST: EXPLAINED 云

THE WEDDING BREAKFAST IS ONE OF THE MOST POPULAR THINGS IVE BEEN ASKED TO EXPLAIN THIS WEEK (LITERALLY NOBODY HAS ASKED ME TO EXPLAIN ANYTHING THIS WEEK)

奴 SO *WHY* OH WHY IS IT CALLED A WEDDING BREAKFAST WHEN THERE IS LITERALLY NEVER ANY GRANOLA AT A WEDDING?! WELL I'M GONNA TELL YOU BECAUSE THAT IS WHY WERE ALL HERE.

ONE THEORY IS THAT SOMEONE AT SOME POINT BELIEVED THAT TIME IS RESET ONCE YOURE MARRIED + THE FIRST MEAL YOU EAT AFTER THE WEDDING CEREMONY SHOULD BE CALLED BREAKFAST WHICH MEANS YOU WAKE UP AT BEDTIME + CAN DRINK WINE IN THE MORNING.

BACK IN THE 16TH CENTURY (COULDVE BEEN ANYTIME - I WASNT THERE) THE BRIDE + GROOM WOULD FAST THE NIGHT BEFORE THE WEDDING + THE FIRST MEAL AFTER THE CEREMONY WOULD BREAK-FAST 刖EDDIT?!

HUMAN BEINGS DONT DO THAT MUCH ANYMORE BECAUSE TAKE-AWAYS EXIST + WE ALL JUST EAT OUR FEELINGS THE NIGHT BEFORE A WEDDING BECAUSE ITS EASIER TO BINGE ON FOOD THAN IT IS TO SOCIALISE WITH PEOPLE OR FACE ANXIETY. TEHE/LUL/LMAYO.
