Are weddings getting weirder?
People are doing it under the Golden Arches, underwater, in the nude and in Nazi uniforms.
They get hitched in all manner of ways and the water-cooler conversations this week have been dominated by nuptials of all sorts.
There’s the couple renewing their vows at McDonalds. Would you like a Happily Ever After meal with that?
Glenn McGrath married Sara Leonardi behind a veil of secrecy, not long after the McGrath Foundation clumsily asked its members if they thought the whirlwind relationship was “disrespectful” .

I once went to a wedding where there were two ceremonies – a (lengthy) Roman Catholic service followed by an Anglican one several kilometres away.
The reception hall was split in half – her Italian relatives down one side and his Anglo mob down the other. And there were two MCs. Yep – one speaking in Italian, the other in English.
