The sun’s out in London today and so we felt like finding something sunny and funny. We’re loving this footage of a trapeze wedding in the sky from the summer of 1959. The wedding video begins with a topless man assembling scaffolding while a merry narrator speculates over what the cause of such “highly unconventional behaviour” could be.   There are several enjoyable details: a trapeze wedding cake with a terrifying swinging doll, two very toothy 1950s bridesmaids looking bemused and a Union Jack flying high above the groom. The 1950s narration is predictably cheesy and a tour de force of tenuous puns – “this cake is really going up in the world” / “One should be on top of the world on one’s wedding day” etc. etc.
