Annie Sprinkle sent us this invitation:
SPREAD THE NEWS! And the LOVE!
YOU ARE INVITED TO ATTEND A WEDDING LIKE NO OTHER!
BLUE WEDDING #5
OVER FIFTY ARTISTS are coming from around Europe, the USA, London and Oxford, to co-create and present the dream PERFORMANCE-ART-WEDDING.
Everyone is welcome to attend, even if you are the kind of person that hates weddings.
On SUNDAY, JUNE 14th, 2009, 150 lucky people will gather together at Oxford England’s historic GROVE HOUSE for an extraordinary day of love-art, activism and celebration. Eco-sexual brides, artists ANNIE SPRINKLE & ELIZABETH STEPHENS, will make sacred wedding vows to their lover the SKY. Yes, the SKY with the stars, planets, sun, and sexy clouds.
Some of many highlights of the wedding RITUAL will be LUKE DIXON officiating the vows and sky kiss, actor/director Veronica Hart as the High Priestess, merman Johnathan McCloskey’s boylesque, throat examinations by Nurse Luby, weirdness from the Scottish Wierdos, Lexi Bradburn’s Instant Show Girl, Blueberry Love Song by Rolf Baltromjus, family friendly striptease by Zoe Snelgrove, a flying ring barer, a heart opening chant, adorable flower girls, eco-decoration, love poems, music, carbon capture kissing, glamorous blue bridal parties, and more.
Then enjoy the wedding reception with Del La Grace Volcano, Sheep Woman Philippa Jeffery, bubble sculpture, the I Love Myself Confessional, waltzing lessons with Dorothy Max Prior, cake eating, supping bubbly, garter toss, petal throwing, swing on a cloud swing, get party favors, and enjoy BLUE entertainment.
DRESS: Wear as much BLUE as possible and dress in the themes of the wedding; communication, throat, and all things sky related. Dress as costumy and creatively as you like and don’t be worried about showing up the brides.
No material gifts please. Your presence is the gift.
