• Short Summary

    Interesting costumes and traditions at a peasant wedding in Saxony.

  • Description

    Titles read: "Meet the Bride! (Not to mention the Groom!)".

    Saxony, Germany.

    Various shots of a traditional peasant wedding in a Saxony village. The bride and groom walk slowly out of the church; both are wearing traditional costume and the bride seems to be wearing a topiary bush on her head. They get into a horse-drawn carriage, commentator points out the man gets in first because he is 'lord of his spouse'.

    The pair are carried to their home by villagers. C/U of one of the bridesmaids - also wearing the topiary bush headgear. Nice shots of the wedding guests dancing in a courtyard. It looks like traditional folk dancing - at one point, two of the men link arms and swing their female partners with their other arms.
