An English Wedding

Guest Author - Alice Rienzo

Bo and Hope

Bo and Hope's English wedding is one of the most beautiful love stories told on daytime television. The day began with Bo arriving at the church on a white horse; the proverbial knight in shining armor.

Vows: Bo to Hope
Hope, I know it's taken us a long time to get here. I'm sure you thought at times that we wouldn't; I know I've had my doubts. I never thought I could have somebody in my life that could make me so happy, make me feel so alive. You know how hard it is for me to tell people how I feel about them, especially the people I care about. But today, in front of all these people, I have no problem telling you that I love you. So, I want you to know that and I want them to know it too. Like the archbishop said, I know our life is not going to be just sunshine and roses from her on in. I want you to know I am going to try my hardest to keep our love alive, because we've got something very special here, it's worth fighting for. I love you Hope.

Vows: Hope to Bo
I guess I, um, fell in love with you the first time I saw you, but it has taken me all this time to realize that what I felt then is nothing compared to what I'm feeling right now. Remember what we said to each other in New Orleans? "True love is the gift that God hath given to man alone beneath the heaven, the silver link, the silver tie, which heart to heart and mind to mind and in body and in soul combined." I was pretty young when you met me, and I get so mad when you call me little one. But knowing you, and loving you has made me grow into a woman, and I am your woman, Bo. And standing here in front of all of these people. I give you my life and all my love, for now and all of eternity. Oh Bo, I love you and I am so proud to be your wife.

An English Wedding
Traditional English wedding cake is a fruitcake, usually made with raisins, ground almonds, cherries and marzipan. The top layer of the wedding cake is called the "christening cake" which the couple is saves for the baptism of their first child.

The fruitcake is served at the wedding reception along with another traditional cake -- the groom's cake -- which originated during the Tudor period. It was once English custom for this to be a fruitcake as well, but today, the groom's cake is likely to be chocolate. Here is one version of the traditional cake:

English Groom's Cake

  • 2 cups raisins or currants
  • 2 cups chopped candied fruit
  • 1 cup candied cherries
  • 1/2 cup cognac, brandy, or bourbon
  • 2 cups water
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 cups walnuts
  • 2 packages date or nut bread mix
  • 1 cup corn syrup

Chop the raisins, candied fruit, and walnuts, and then mix with the liquor (if used). Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease and flour pan. Combine water, eggs, oil, and fruit mixture with the bread mix. Bake for an hour to an hour and a half. After cooled, glaze with corn syrup and chopped walnuts.
