We understand (says the Hereford Journal) a singular wedding took place at Bodenham, in this county, during the late deep floods. Arrangements had been made by a worthy couple to get married; the day was fixed and everything ready, when unfortunately the river Lug overflowed, and the spot where the church stood was deeply inundated on the very morning the happy ceremony was to take place. Determined, however, not to be disappointed, a cart was hired, which conveyed the party to the doors of the church, where they found the water was very deep inside; they, however, procured benches, upon which they stood whilst the clergyman tied the nuptial knot in waterproof boots!
