The groom would have a twopenny ring for the bride, and everyone thought it a great thing to get.
After the marriage, the newly married couple would go to the bride's house for breakfast. There would be old shoes tied to the sidecars, and when the people saw this, they cheered and shouted.
After breakfast, there would be a half barrel of porter produced. Then every person present would get a mug of it, and while they would be drinking, they would tell stories.
When that was over, they would go for a drive around the country. On their return home there would be bonfires lighting to welcome them.

They would spend all day in town, and come home at about twelve o'clock in the night.
