After the ceremony the happy couple were not allowed to escape without having to run the gauntlet of an old village custom. A rope was tied across the road by several conspirators, who thus stopped the taxi from which the bridegroom emerged, and, according to tradition, crossed their hands with silver. After this amid showers of confetti, the bride and bridegroom departed for their honeymoon in Liverpool.
