A newlywed couple tell of their experience of getting married in a celebration interrupted by rocket sirens, which at one stage saw dancing take place not in an elegantly decorated wedding hall, but instead in a bomb shelter.
The couple say that guests were briefed in advance of the procedure if there were sirens during the event.
“We hope there wouldn’t be a siren during the ceremony, says Lauren. “When it happened [after the ceremony] we all just went into the shelter. It didn’t matter. Everyone was happy to celebrate with us.”
Her husband David explains that they decided to go ahead with the wedding because they had already previously postponed it due to the coronavirus pandemic.
