Abi & Dan’s Newburgh Priory Wedding



Firehorse Photography France

Before we get on to Abi & Dan’s Newburgh Priory wedding, we need to talk about ‘The Child of Prague’.

“There seem to be a few variations on the same theme.

Some leave the child inside, in their hallway the night before a wedding.

Others leave the child outside. But leave the child outside under a bush.

Then there is the question of whether or not the child needs to be beheaded.

This rather strange addition seems to come from the fact that the statues were, in the past, made rather shoddily.

The neck was a weak stress point and when left outside overnight, the clay or plaster of paris would contract in the cold and the head would invariably fall off.

In our wisdom, we Irish decided that a decapitated baby Jesus was a good omen.

Some people qualify this by claiming that the head then needs to be placed or glued back on the body.

Nowadays Irish people invested in their wedding day don’t like to take the chance that the infant’s head will fall off naturally, so customary and savage beheadings have become the norm.

Improved statue quality and modern manufacturing quality control processes are to blame.

Thankfully though it is in his nature to be forgiving and the infant does still seem to confer good weather to these zealous couples.

The Irish are alone in their belief that the child of Prague can influence the weather and it is unclear where this tradition started”.*

Err, right. So the big question, did it rain on Abi & Dan’s wedding day or was the weather glorious?”

It did (rain). And it wasn’t (glorious weather). Take ‘The Child of Prague’ and bin it.

Instead, bury a sausage in your garden. That one is 100% guaranteed.

So back in the world of reality…
