Let's Get Married Today

13/09/2003

The event brought two couples from very different backgrounds (along with their families and friends) to get married in Grizedale Forest. Each couple used ceremonies of their own devising and then went on to celebrate the weddings together. They were entertained in the evening by a wide mix of material from family and friends and from favorite performers and contemporary artists.

The event was strange and compelling and was received very differently by each of the couples. Kerry Stewart's work 'Crow' became an all time highlight of the Grizedale programme with a man sized crow performing a mating ritual to the strains of Paul Mccartney's 'Mull of Kintyre' an event that bonded the entire disparate audience for a brief moment of bonding.
