work as a photojournalist, arranged for the marriage commissioner, who was stuck in Banff, to hand the couple s marriage license to a truck driver who was shuttling people through the single lane open on a washed-out highway.Then, she managed to find another marriage commissioner locally.Patricia Compton, whose own basement was flooded, was up for it, saying she needed something to make her feel good.With only four out of the 175 or so invited guests present, the couple married on a rainy Saturday, with the full support of a community elated to see love shine through a struggle.We were so

director, Jackie Maxwell, about the joys and struggles of the Festival s six-day work week.She mentioned that actors, if they are hoping to get married during the season, have to do it on a Monday, so it does not conflict with the performance schedule.One such wedding took place on May 20 of this year between actors Marla McLean and Graeme Somerville.But with the Shaw season running until November, it may prove difficult to plan a honeymoon anytime soon.McLean returns to the Shaw Festival in 2013 for her eighth season, playing the role of Lady Windermere in Lady Windermere s Fan (which our own Robert Cushman called, both visually and tonally, a masterpiece ).She will also appear as Caroline Bramble in Enchanted April, which begins previews on June 25.In addition to her years of service at Shaw, McLean has also been a regular fixture on regional theatre stages across the country.In 2003, McLean won a Robert Merritt Award for Outstanding Actress for her portrayal of Helen Keller in The Miracle Worker.The Post spoke to McLean from her home in Niagara-on-the-Lake.Below, what it s like to be Marla McLean, in her own words:I don t think our honeymoon will be happening soon.We finish here at the end of October, but like all actors, we re gypsies, so we might be moving on to other work.Our plan is to go to Paris at some point and wander the streets, but that may have to be next year.I grew up in Nova Scotia.I was born in Sydney, Cape Breton, grew up in Dartmouth, and spent my summers in Prince Edward Island.I had a couple of favourite movies growing up.One was Funny Girl with Barbra Streisand.The other was The Usual Suspects.I ve seen it far too many times to say out loud.Boots are my go-to accessory.if you throw those on with a dress Cheap Bridesmaid Dresses , you re good to go.You can tackle the world.There are so many actors who inspire me.Sharry Flett and Mary Haney.Their work ethic is exceptional.Their detail and passion on stage is inspiring to watch.I look at those women and think, If I could be half the actor they are, I would be all right.I have a couple of favourite roles that I ve played.Lady Windermere, my current role, is definitely up there.Peter Hinton has taken a classical piece and turned it on its head.I ve done a lot of classical work, but to have an opportunity to play a role that s quite traditional on paper, and then lift it outside that box it s been a great challenge and a huge pleasure.It s been a fantastic adventure working with Peter Hinton.He s a visionary, and he is very clear as to what that vision is.He s great at letting his actors in.So once we got on the train and it certainly was a train there are times when we would go off the rails, but that was an acceptable practice in rehearsals, which was a great thing both for him and us.It was a great adventure.I m not reading anything right now.I m preparing for an audition right now.Actually, it s Jane Eyre, so that s what I m reading.I m listening to a lot of Mumford Sons.It wasn t the last thing I bought, but it s something I keep coming back to.I m learning to cook.I m teaching myself, and I am a great sous-chef to my new husband.Edited from an interview with David Rockne CorriganLady Windermere s Fan plays at Shaw s Festival Theatre through October 19.Enchanted April runs June 25 October 26.For more information, visit ShawFest.Sondra Gotlieb: It s twilight of the doorknobs as our whole house falls apartWe live in a three-story house, but most of our friends of our ancient age have cleverly moved to condos.Apparently nothing goes wrong in a condo, and if it does, there’s always a helpful handyman who lives downstairs to put things right, tout suite.But in our 100-plus-year-old house, we never know what to do when our latest problem strikes.There have been problems since we purchased it a generation or so ago.Occasionally we just let it go as long as it’s not the toilet overflowing or the water not running.Our family on both sides has never been handy with hammer and nails, or even diagnosing the problem.Our latest challenge is doorknobs.Don’t try opening .

I was always pretty keen to get into it.How did you transition to owning the business?The decision was literally made for me when my mother collapsed with a stroke on her way to work.So really there was no transition; I had to step up and do the job because she was no longer capable of doing it, but the business was still ticking on.That was about six years ago.It was one of those 'now or never' moments.So Vinka had been fully running the business up to that point?I was quite involved with it anyway, and we'd talk through business ideas and discuss things, but she was still the boss and I was working for her.When it happened I'd just come back from my honeymoon.It was a terrible shock Cheap Lace Wedding Dresses , but I wanted to continue her legacy, and to keep the business focused on the clients and delivering for them.I just had to step up and get on with it.Given that was the way the business transitioned, what helped you through?We didn't want our clients to worry about our crisis, so we had to keep focusing on what we had to do.I had to be the front of house, as well as make sure everything was ticking along nicely in the workroom, so the challenge was finding the time to make that commitment.I had to talk to my family and tell them that me taking on the business was going to be a massive commitment.I could have easily turned away and said it's all too hard.But I said to myself I'd never know if I was good enough if I didn't try, and I'd rather do that than wonder what might have been.It's so easy to design behind someone else's label, but when it's your money on the line it tends to matter a bit more.What advice would you have for someone else taking on a family business?Respect the past and what's been achieved to that point in the business because it matters.It's something to be proud of.When I took over, the salon and collection had to reflect me as a designer but it also had to be true to Vinka's design aesthetic and standards.That meant from the outside it didn't look like there had been a big change; perhaps I have a different design perspective Cheap Short Wedding Dresses , but the business still has Vinka's design DNA.I'd also advise listening to the staff because you don't know everything.They want the business to succeed as well, and you have to respect other points of view and listen to wise heads.You don't have to do everything your way and put your stamp on everything to feel like the business is yours.Don't change just for the sake of it.How about the future of the business in terms of succession?We're still young here but it would be lovely if there was another young talent who shared our vision and would come along at some point and design for the label.I'd like to think it was a brand that someone else could design for, which is why I didn't make the label all about me because what happens when you're gone?Coming up in Small Business: What do small business owners do when they have a baby?NZ HeraldRead more by Caitlin Sykes Email Caitlin SykesEmailPrintView moreSmall Business: Family succession Small Business: Family succession - James Fisher, PJF Services Small Business: Family succession - John Eady, Lewis Eady Small Business: Family succession - Deb Shepherd LoadingCurrencyCompare and convert world currencies.Discover more LoadingLoadingHerald ServicesBook your adDrivenPhotos for saleTrue CommercialDeath NoticesPublic Notices Our Regional News StoriesThe Northern AdvocateSport: Whittaker feels weight of US expectationAsk New Zealand powerlifting champion Joseph Whittaker what his least favorite food is Hawke's Bay TodayObituary: Stuart Tuari John James (Hemi) Panapa Hastings man Stuart "Hemi" Panapa died last Sunday, without receiving the Queen's Service Bay of Plenty TimesAnnemarie Quill: Rugby makes me fit for citizenship It has been 12 years since I moved to New Zealand but it was only this week that I became Our Features Top StoriesDrivenTesting BMW’s xDrive X-factor in Thailand Driven takes to the once opium-growing region of Thailand as a guest of BMW to test BMW's VivaModels to Watch at NZFW The up-and-coming models to look out for on the runway.YoutubeInstagramRSS.

let’s please take a moment to thank ourselves.on why, oops, we’re not getting married.In last weekend’s New York Times, there was an op-ed challenging the belief that 70% of black women remain single;Unlike Bolick, Walker dared breathe no suggestion that if the institution of marriage is limping, maybe we should just walk away.But the majority remain stuck with a lifelong attachment to lifelong attachment.Or, shall I say, a lifelong attachment to the idea of lifelong attachment.This was also the regrettable year in which we all kept up with the Kardashians, even without watching (I swear!a single episode of the show.It was impossible not to know that Kim got married, in August, smack in the dead days of television, bringing her gajillion-dollar enterprise a network record-imploding 10.It was impossible not to know that Kim got divorced, on Halloween, after 72 days of marriage (or, a third of the length of Hermain Cain’s campaign).by the incredibly romantic business of being herself on E!Entertainment Television.million and weighed 20.It was impossible not to know that she kept it.And it was impossible not to wonder, again, if all this rigamarole isn’t really more about the ring than what the ring represents.are a-flash with full-page ads selling forever diamonds.It’s telling of the institution just how dated Cheap A-Line Wedding Dresses , how traditional, how frankly tacky and bougie and lame these rings look.and felt like a dude in the ’90s trying to tell the difference between little black dresses.It’s telling also that in both lads and ladies mags, the rings are for the ladies.Tiffany’s has launched the dedicated engagement site WhatMakesLoveTrue.s, so expectation-maxing and pornily voyeuristic, that it should really be WhatMakesLoveTrue.proposals: in one, he takes her deep-sea diving for pearls, but she finds a diamond instead.Jesus, like speaking of pressure levels.Anyway, to the great credit of Tiffany’s ad agency, What Makes Love True doesn’t position the ring as the end goal of romance; what’s being sold here is more subtly implied.If it seems strange that 80% of men say (or said, in a few-years-ago survey) they would accept a proposal from a woman, but only 9% of women would propose, it helps not to accuse both sides of lying to themselves (that too, though), but to look long and hard at the ring.I think women still want that ring, and as with anything sparkling and over-the-top and too expensive, we want to be given it.You know, ’cause it’s a symbol of enduring love and commitment, but like, dudely.On something of a whatever note, recent word has it the young Selena Gomez.

next step means looking at moving down the world of separation.Relative to the rest of the cities across Canada, the spike in the number of calls is about 40 to 50 per cent higher in Calgary.Stewart said anytime there is an event around a holiday or special occasion where people step away from the hustle and bustle of life, and alcohol is consumed, there is a rise in people taking the steps to end their marriages.For the Stampede, particularly Cheap Prom Dresses , it’s kind of got the whole mix of them all.It’s a bit of a vacation.Lot of alcohol consumption.Sometimes spouses are out without

people letting their guard down, she said.That’s sort of been a cliche for the last 30 years.That trend continues.There’s lots of juicy stories about bad behaviour.Stampede is a family affair and it’s a great place.But it’s also a place that can bring things to a head to what may have been moving in that direction in the first place.She said there is a misnomer that infidelity happens more on the

wanted to live or die Cocktail Dresses 2015 Sale , knowing he wasn t being true to who she was.Each time he returned stateside, he came home angry.He punched holes in the wall.He punched a drunk in a bar and spent the night in jail.He deployed 13 times to stay away, his marriage dissolving in the process.He served with the elite Seal Team Six unit.After 20 years fighting for her country, Beck decided to retire and fight for herself.She transitioned in 2013 to a wave of publicity.A former member of SEAL Team Six coming out as a woman made for good television.Anderson Cooper interviewed her in prime time on CNN, and the network later made a 90-minute documentary about her journey called Lady Valor.She covered up her biker-gang tattoo with a ladybug, quit her job as a military consultant, and hit the road to make her living lecturing about human rights.On tour, she talks about staring down Taliban warlords, kicking down doors to capture insurgents, and sparing the life of an armed guard who would become a friend.She talks about coming home to a place that s supposed to be safe and getting beat up outside of a bar for wearing a dress.I have a right to some happiness, she said.She lobbied on behalf of a bill that would make it illegal to discriminate in hiring based on sexual orientation or gender, and advocated for LGBT protections in the military.It took time, but her parents learned to be supportive.It s been harder for her sons, whom she rarely sees anymore.Last year, Beck moved to Maryland s 5th District near Andrews Air Force Base and her mother.At a Pentagon social event, Beck met a woman, Heather Stott, an active technical sergeant in the Air Force Security Forces.The two fell in love and got engaged.Beck had always seen herself as a sheepdog, someone eager to protect the community.Now that she had a home that felt like home, she decided the best way to serve would be to run for Congress.I know I m the underdog, she said, while leaving the house for a full day of campaigning Cocktail Dresses 2016 Sale , But I m going to freakin win.Beck s entrance into politics comes at a big moment for transgender issues.While there has been a surge in pop-culture acceptance (see: Caitlyn Jenner on the cover of Vanity Fair, Laverne Cox on the cover of Time magazine, and the acclaimed TV series Transparent ), civil rights for trans people lag behind.Beck would not be allowed to serve as openly transgender in the military.Even while Beck says she won t make LGBT issues a campaign priority, she has positioned herself as a de facto leader.When a community doesn t have that many spokespeople, anyone who decides to put themselves out front automatically becomes a spokesperson, whether they want to or not, said Dana Beyer a transgender woman who has also run for office in Maryland.It might not be fair, but it s the truth.And not everyone is convinced that Beck is up for that particular role.She s famous for speaking right off the cuff and having to backtrack, said Autumn Sandeen, a transgender activist and Navy veteran.Many activists found Beck s disparaging comments about Chelsea Manning ( If Bradley is truly Chelsea then she is a traitor to ME, Beck wrote on Facebook) and Jenner ( He s no hero, Beck said in a TV appearance, raising an eyebrow about the reality star s likely financial windfall) to be counterproductive.Beck is certainly a complicated personality.She makes a living giving speeches about her journey to self-acceptance but doesn t want to be thought of as a transgender candidate.Sometimes she s OK with the term trans other times she asks to be referred to by the Native American term two-spirited.She suffers from post-traumatic stress disorder, manifested by sleep problems and a tendency to repeat herself.She gripes that Hillary Clinton may have lifted the term everyday Americans from her campaign.On a number of occasions, she asks not to be called a hero, even when no one has done so.But as big as her personality is, Beck is trying hard not to make this an identity-based election.equal pay for equal work, term limits for members of Congress, cleaning up the huge amount of human fecal matter in the Chesapeake Bay watershed.I try not to say much about the LGBT community, she said.It s a crazy burden to ask someone to speak for a community.The only time her website broaches the issue, in fact Cocktail Dresses Sale , she declares that gay rights, marriage and a host of other issues should not be directed by a few old white guys in Washington D.but left for the states to decide.This limited government ideology doesn t play well with most LGBT activists, who seek sweeping federal protections.And have they already mentioned that she s trying to take out an incumbent who strongly supported gay marriage in 2012?I wouldn t vote for a trans candidate just because she is trans, said Sarah McBride, the first openly trans person to work in the White House.And from what I know, there are policies that Kristin supports that give me pause.But anytime a transgender person is willing to tell their story and stand up and say this is my community, that s beneficial.So this is how Beck s pitch goes on the trail: She notes that she was a Navy SEAL, mentions how long Hoyer has been in office, calls him some rich millionaire who doesn t understand the plight of working people.In reality, Hoyer is one of the poorest members of the House, according to financial disclosures.last year on the speaking circuit.She does have a way of connecting with voters, adapting her spiel to specific audiences.At a College Park, Maryland, coffee shop, a teacher listened attentively to her arguments for free college education, even while another pair of customers shooed her away without making eye contact.She walked into a local fire station to chat up the crew and admired the Harley-Davidson parked inside, standing with her legs apart and chest out like an alpha male.I don t even remember the last time a politician showed up here, said Deputy Chief Chris Hunter.In a diner parking lot, she talked with David Jackson.

don’t think they’ll be able to foot the entire bill, according to a new study.The BMO InvestorLine survey of 500 adults revealed that nearly 40% of respondents believe their ideal wedding is out of

scaled it down, I would have made it more intimate.And I think a lot of things I worried about and wanted to spend money on probably weren’t really worth it.The online survey of 500 adults who are not currently married but at least somewhat likely to get married in the future was conducted for BMO InvestorLine by Pollara between April 11-15.The margin of error is plus or minus 4.percentage points, 19 times out of 20.In June 1985, a bomb planted by Sikh terrorists exploded on board Air India Flight 182 over the Irish Sea.The 329 dead were nearly all Canadians, by birth or naturalization, a fact which initially escaped notice in Canada.With the passage of time, however, the impact of the tragedy on our historical memory seems to have increased, as evidenced by its chronicling in Canadian journalism, fiction, film documentaries and so on.This is understandable.Such trust we have in our aircraft.As the disappearance of Flight 370 reminds us, few things are more chilling than the spectacle of that trust betrayed by human malice.But the Air India episode had local dimensions.an act of brown-on-brown terrorism that a (nearly) white government failed to prevent or even properly

to project onto her.This insight is consistent with Time s description of her as a latter-day Mona Lisa Prom Dresses Sale , always smiling mysteriously but known for keeping mum.Certainly, there have been stumbles along the young woman s road to influence, from photos painting her as a party girl to the recent incident in France.But Bell believes these things to be comparatively tame next to the exploits of those other famous sisters, the Kardashians.No worries, Pippa, she says, laughing.Sometimes it’s just not enough to quietly think terrible thoughts about King Joffrey.You’re sitting there watching Game of Thrones, Joffrey’s being a snivelling, entitled sociopath, and you just have to let it be known on Twitter that OH PLEASE I WANT JOFFREY TO DIE!PREFERABLY WITH FIRE.And, hashtag #GameofThrones, there, you feel much better.The practice of posting Twitter updates while watching live television is, like most facets of social media, on a sharp rise.Bluefin Labs, a social media analytics company based in Cambridge, Mass.and co-founded by Canadian MIT professor Deb Roy, reports that almost 60,000 comments about the Season 2 premiere of Game of Thrones were posted to social media, primarily Twitter, during its initial airing on HBO earlier this month.It doesn’t specifically report how many of those were viewers urging violent death upon Joffrey Baratheon Wedding Umbrellas Sale , but I bet it’s a lot.RelatedHow to approach Game of Thrones, for nerds and newbiesMad Men is back: Matt Weiner and the show’s cast discuss their return to AMCAnd while studying television-related tweeting might seem a somewhat superficial pursuit, there is much for networks and, increasingly, advertisers to glean from what is being said on the Twitter machine.What you tweet says a lot about you.Companies that would like to sell you things want to know what that is.Roy gave an address last week to an audience of television and advertising executives in Toronto, where he explained how Bluefin was able to compile Twitter data to determine what was being said about what shows and at what time.Further still, it analyzes other tweets from users who post about a certain series to build a demographic profile of sorts.in order to get a sense of the proportion of viewers of CSI who are parents.If nothing else, it’s a handy reminder that everything you tweet is in the public domain.Bluefin’s service is now being extended to advertisers, who can find out what viewers are saying about their latest campaigns.This is of particular use for companies that buy time across many channels; Roy demonstrated how Twitter chatter about certain products spiked on some networks, but not others.Twitter mentions of Taco Bell went up four-fold after an intense TV ad campaign.All of this is simply more data for networks and advertisers to digest, to be sure, but it is becoming more relevant in our fractured media landscape.At the same Toronto conference, senior executives with Canada’s major broadcasters discussed some of the challenges facing the industry.There was agreement on the panel that one of the key problems is the hole in traditional television-ratings systems that is created by the multi-platform way in which television is now consumed.People watch on computers, tablets, smartphones, PVRs and all at whatever time suits them.WHOA FAT BETTY DRAPER!tweets pop up even weeks after that episode first aired.Twitter: not just for making fun of a drunk Snooki anymore.The New York Times wrote a story recently about the series Frozen Planet, which wrapped its six-episode run on Discovery in the United States and Canada on Sunday.In that earnest New York Times way, it wondered if the documentary series on life at Earth’s two poles had erred in not making the cause of climate-change a part of its subject matter.To that, I say: Bah.picture it portrays of nature.From the footage of baby polar bears sliding down the side of an ice-covered hill as they emerged from a winter den to the bloody fight between a bison and a wolf, this was a series full of great surprises.In a finale that focused on the effects of a warming climate, the images were no less stunning: huge sheets of ice breaking from glaciers Wedding Gloves Sale , rivers of sapphire-blue water created by Greenland’s melting ice pack, a shoreline that is teeming with seals as the ice retreats around them.Did the producers need to cram a lecture in there?No, the effects are plain to see.Like the entire series, it was fascinating.If you missed it the first time around, Discovery Canada begins re-airing it this weekend.a series such as Real Housewives has thousands of hours of footage that is carved out in order to get a solid 10 hours of bitchiness and backstabbing.Shaw’s Slice channel is attempting to work around this problem by debuting four new series in heavy rotation, with the producers of each ready to begin filming again soon if one becomes a breakout hit.The idea is to minimize lag time between a show’s initial success and its follow-up season.The new titles begin their rollout on May 10: Love Hunters, Wedding Dress Wars, My Teenage Wedding and Make Me Over, Make Me Under.You can probably deduce what each is about.Don t let the drizzle cramp your Saturday wanderings!Not only is there a kick-art craft show this weekend, but sample sales galore.The spring edition of City of Craft is here (at Trinity St.Paul s United Church, 427 Bloor S.one block west of Spadina).The hall is filled with locally handmade goods, from vintage reworked pieces to supplies, stationery, home goods and jewellery by this slew of stellar vendors.admission (kids 12 and under get in free).The designers behind Chloe Comme Parris are having a Spring Pop-Up Shop and studio sale this weekend at their new digs (at 24 Ryerson Ave.Expect up to 80% off their beautiful past collections and the opportunity to place pre-orders for their Fall 2012 collection, too.Cash or cheque only, Saturday and Sunday, 11am-5pm.Roots Customer Appreciation Sale, which means 25% off purchases (included previous.

re of John Pennoyer’s set Wedding Jackets Sale , in surprise disguise; either he’s been getting some spying in early, or his taste for dress-up is already well developed, or the cynical Lucio was more right about the Duke’s non-ducal habits than even he might have guessed.Talking (again) of habits: along with his friar’s uniform, Geraint Wyn Davies’ Duke borrows a Welsh accent (which to this actor, of course, comes naturally) from one member of his host order and a pair of spectacles from another.This gives him charm, along with his natural unforced authority, but it’s sometimes hard to tell whether it’s the actor or the character who most enjoys exerting it.moral force or heartless manipulator?and this production and performance, intentionally or not, leave him ambiguous.A crowd of good performances cover all the play’s bases.On the streets there’s Stephen Ouimette’s raddled Lucio, an irrepressible hard case, Randy Hughson’s pockmarked pimp, and Brian Tree for whom the role of Elbow the indignant constable was probably written.On the bench there’s Peter Hutt’s Escalus, finding a remarkable range of magisterial gradations.In prison, there are Stephen Russell’s properly gentle Provost, Robert Persichini huge and hairy as the unregenerate Barnadine, and Ruby Joy bringing unwonted pride to the pregnant Juliet.In the moated grange, here equipped with its own ferry, there’s Sarah Afful’s Mariana who sings her own song.The list goes right down to the First and Second Gentlemen, the latter of whom (E.Smith) doubles as the executioner Abhorson, a true professional.The last scene, in which they all (except the dog) foregather, is very well-ordered, tense and exciting.The production is both riveting and perplexing: like the play.Is there a better-constructed scene in any musical than the wedding in Fiddler on the Roof?There’s the joy of the ceremony itself Wedding Tiaras Sale , accompanied by the infallibly moving Sunrise, Sunset; then the celebration, including the immortal Bottle Dance; then the squabbling domestic comedy, centred around the unsuccessful suitor; then more dancing, with the joyous breaking down of barriers between men and women advancing the political plot; then its brutal interruption by the Czarist police; finally Tevye’s brusque instructions to clear up, followed by the desperate shrug of his silent, questioning appeal to heaven.Donna Feore’s Stratford production makes the pogrom scarier than the usual carefully choreographedfurniture-smashing; this time, people get hurt.She also, as choreographer, blesses us with some spectacular Cossack leaps and splits in To Life, though the earlier parts of this number aren’t as incandescent as they were in the previous, unforgettable Stratford production.Nor is the show as a whole, and not just because Scott Wentworth’s Tevye can hardly hope to be as supernaturally moving as was Brent Carver’s.He’s still good: fine in his singing and, in his acting, increasingly powerful the more rugged the character and the situation become.It’s also a tickle to see him, the night after his Capulet in Romeo, playing another father with disobedient daughter troubles; maybe Juliet’s marital problems could have been solved if her dad had had the right dream.The design incorporates a number of portable dollhouses, which don’t do much to suggest Anatevka or anywhere else, and some motifs hanging from the ceiling too crude to be the Chagallian homage that must have been intended.superbly crafted book, Jerry Bock’s lovely stirring music, and Sheldon Harnick’s lyrics, even if they tend to explain things too earnestly for the benefit of the Gentiles.It isn’t quite indestructible (Harvey Fierstein proved that a few years ago) but it’s the next best thing.Measure for Measure is in repertory at the Tom Patterson Theatre, Stratford, through Sept.Fiddler on the Roof at the Festival Theatre through Oct.Queen Elizabeth II: The Coronation Wedding Veils Sale , by the numbersHad the modern media been around back at the dawn of the Second Elizabethan Era, these might have been the headlines:Exclusive!Gifts on the day include an orb, sceptre, jewelled swordis, bracelets and golden spurs!to fit into the Norman Hartnell gown!Pharmacy that mixes traditional Anointing Oil out of business, but recipe found just in time to save the day!Cinnamon and musk are the scents Lizzie chose to make her special day complete!A dress fit for a princess!The ceremonial Supertunica is cut from cloth made of pure woven gold!the lavish gown was hidden under a ceremonial gown called the Colobium, a simple pleated white linen dress symbolic of a monarch’s rejection of vanity4 Pounds, 12 ounces: The weight of the solid gold St.Edward’s Crown, made in 1661 and placed on HRH’s head during the service5 Different types of flowers in the all-white Coronation Bouquet created by the Worshipful Company of Gardeners: orchids from Wales and England, stephanotis from Scotland, carnations from Northern Ireland and the Isle of Man, and English lilies-of-the-valley6 Times the Queen has shopped her closet and re-worn the Hartnell gown since the Coronation, the last occasion of which was the Opening of Parliament in Canada in 19577 Ladies including 6 Coronation Maids in attendance to Her Majesty: two Ladies of the Bedchamber, four Women of the Bedchamber, and the Mistress of the Robes8 Months for royal dressmaker Norman Hartnell to execute the dress, chosen of the eighth design sketch he submitted, in white satin with a fitted bodice, embroidered with gold and silver thread, seed pearls and crystals with emblems of the Commonwealth, including gold maple leaves for Canada8 Grey geldings pulled the Gold State Coach from Buckingham Palace to Westminster Abbey11 Million Britons listened to the ceremony on the radio20 Yards of purple velvet train27 Million Britons watched the ceremony on television38 British sovereigns crowned at Westminster Abbey before Queen Elizabeth81 Age of the Queen’s grandmother, Queen Mary, when she became the first Queen to see a grandchild accede the throne.

during the civil war and was raised in the United Kingdom.She met Clooney, who is active in many political causes, through her work.As the wedding party descended on Venice, the Alamuddin family house in Baakline was empty.Her neighbors said the bride s cousins departed the night before.Many villagers welcomed the news of the impending nuptials.We congratulate them and we hope that the happiness will be international, said shopkeeper Ghassan Bou Hatoum.Luca Bruno in Venice, Maeva Bambuck in Baakline, Lebanon and Colleen Barry in Milan contributed to this report.Not since the gilded barges of the doges swept down the Grand Canal will Venice have seen such a spectacle.More than 150 Hollywood stars and luminaries of the art world will travel down one of the world’s most famous waterways

Amal Alamuddin plan to wed in Italy as couple posts legal notice declaring intention to marry thereBut the marriage, which has been the subject of fevered speculation for weeks, will present a security headache for the Venetian authorities.Celebrities will be escorted by police boats, an official at Venice city council confirmed, while other vessels, including gondolas, will be barred from lingering outside the Aman, which occupies a restored canal-front palace at the Palazzo Papadopoli.The authorities are expected to stop short of completely closing the Grand Canal, which would cause an uproar among tourists and residents, but they will prevent boatloads of photographers from floating in front of the hotel in the hope of catching a glimpse of Clooney and his friends.The growing excitement surrounding the wedding has raised the spectre of past tragedies, caused when the waterways of Venice have become too crowded.A German tourist died last year near the famed Rialto Bridge

Grand Canal owned by Venice council.Ca’ Farsetti, which sits almost opposite the Aman Hotel, is a stunning 14th century palazzo that houses Venice’s town hall and main council offices.The narrow

be her sister, Tala.he has stayed there several times, especially during the annual Venice Film Festival.But he ruled it out as a wedding venue because of the ghosts of girlfriends past.He took many of his former flames there, including the Italian showgirl Elisabetta Canalis, who recently married an American surgeon in Sardinia.On Saturday, George Clooney will tie the knot with lawyer Amal Alamuddin at Venice s 14th century Ca Farsetti palazzo, in a ceremony that will be beautiful, lavish and just teeming with paparazzi.about the weddings of people we know.my mother s wedding dress, but I can tell you off the top of my head that Kim Kardashian got married in Givenchy (and I bet you can, too, don t even lie).and then all of a sudden, whoops, he s in love and wants to commit in a
