"The bells rang, and everybody smi–" …oh, wait


Sense and Sensibility WeddingAlert Janeite Laurel Ann let us know that fans of S&S95 who hoped to be married at the same 15th-century church in which Col. Brandon and Marianne took their fictional vows might have some disappointment to contend with.

Since the 1995 film, the church has been busy performing weddings for those who loved the movie; but as of 18 months ago, structural issues with the bell tower have not allowed happy couples to have the bells rung for their wedding, and they went elsewhere. The church is now engaged in rebuilding the tower so that it will be once again safe to ring the bells.
