WALPOLE, Mass. -- Say cheers to the Royal Wedding and renew your own wedding vows while you're at it! 7NEWS has found just the place to do both right in New England.
Looking for just the right place to enjoy the Royal Wedding? How about an English ale house?
“It's such a major event, the Royal Wedding…we wanted to celebrate it appropriately,” said Mike Fallman, owner.
At the British Beer Company in Walpole, that celebration on Friday includes watching the Royal Wedding all day along with something very special. More than 50 couples will renew their wedding vows, including Karen and Dan from Jamaica Plain.
“I think it's great. It gives us a chance to recommit to each other,” said Dan.
“I didn't think that we'd be doing it on year 13, but why not? So it's kind of neat,” said Karen.
Their kids approve!
“I think it's great because everybody needs a chance to be a princess,” said their daughter.
Phyllis and George of Franklin will renew their 59-year-old vows complete with a tiara.
“I know what comes between people when they're in love and they plan a future together. It's really special,” said Phyllis.
“She is the epitome of what this is all about. It is a good time,” said George.
After you are done repledging your love? Time to eat and drink - lead Chef James Gibney is preparing a spread fit for a king and queen. And he should know he did work at Windsor Castle.
“There’s gonna be some things there that people recognize and there’s going to be some things that are different and that’s what it’s all about,” said Gibney.
“BBC is the place to be the 29th,” said Fallman.
There will be a bagpiper to help set the scene as well.
