Model Answer 1:
Talking about a happy and fun event like wedding ceremony has always been a favourite subject for me because attending such happy occasion brings a lot of joy among the people while also witnessing a rare moment of the new beginning of life. Today, I would like to talk about one such wedding ceremony that I attended about a few months ago.

I would like to say that it was a “marriage from heaven”. Some even called it “marriage of the year” because thousands of people attended it. By the way, a wedding ceremony, a traditional one in the cultural context of my country, of one of my first cousins, who also happened to be the only child and son of his parents. So, they made all kinds of arrangements, which included bringing some of the best catering people from the town to cook virtually all kinds of traditional and non-traditional delicious dishes and hiring a famous musical band of my country to play music, to make the wedding ceremony even a more memorable one.

By the way, the marriage had taken place at a local but very big party centre which could accommodate thousands of people. At the ceremony, the guests were busy greeting each other while enjoying some snacks. The music was being played at one corner of the party centre people some young people were also dancing to the tune of music. One of the best things about that wedding ceremony was that the party centre was decorated with some marvellous lighting system, potted plants and some fresh flowers. And, of course, people dressed to kill to make the wedding ceremony to look even more colourful and dreamy.
Anyway, I enjoyed this wedding ceremony because there were so many nice things that were going on at the ceremony while it also followed the traditional values and customs of our culture. In fact, I would say that it was a wedding ceremony, which was enjoyed by all kinds of people of all ages from all over the city. It was an expensive wedding ceremony, but the fun was worth it.


Sample Answer 2:
One of the memorable wedding ceremonies that I attended and enjoyed was the wedding party of my cousin. It was in the year 2007 and I was 21 years old at that time. I can recall that it was mid-summer and I took 4-day-leave from my university to attend the program.

My cousin Ruby got married and she was the daughter of my eldest maternal uncle. Among our cousins, she was the eldest and she was 24 years old when she got married to a doctor. I was at the wedding from the very beginning, shopping till the departure of the bride to her father-in-law's house. The whole house was decorated, we celebrated a ceremony 3 days long, lots of relatives and neighbours came to congratulate the bride and they brought some gifts for her as well. The host prepared several delicious dishes and sweets and everyone wore new and traditional dresses. Everyone enjoyed, sang and danced, the whole program was recorded and everyone cried when the bride left the house.

Yes, that was a typical wedding that followed the general traditions and customs. It was nothing different from the traditional marriages that are generally performed in most of the part of the country except some minor tribes and society. If fact we enjoyed the wedding because a typical marriage ceremony in our country has lots of interesting and enjoyable parts that people celebrate with boundless joys. We mostly followed the customs and thoroughly enjoyed the whole wedding program.
