Many weddings were cancelled or postponed in 2020 for obvious reasons, but a lot went ahead in smaller venues with seriously reduced numbers and a more relaxed attitude. Hopefully the Covid-19 vaccine programme will pave the way for weddings to finally go ahead from mid-2021 onwards.
We are all familiar with the act of getting down on one knee, often as a gesture of respect, loyalty or even obedience, although we are not advocating you must obey your future wife or husband! Its exact origin is unknown but some say that it stems from the Middle Ages when a man would bend down for a woman he adored. Nowadays it is still common to get down on one knee to propose, and there’s a vulnerability and deep emotional connection that is still rather romantic.
