I saw this sketch on TV years ago- just found it on Youtube. It's a comedy sketch: a wedding where the vicar and the bride keep sneezing due to the flowers in the church (a couple of noseblows too).

The best bit is Ronnie Barker making some sneeze-buildup noises while reading the wedding service, and the finger-under-nose sneezes from the bride (which are not bad, compared with most acted sneezes).

P.S. Non-UK forum users might not know who the Two Ronnies were. They were a comedy double-act (Ronnie Barker and Ronnie Corbett) who had a very long-running sketch show on the BBC in the 70s and 80s. They look old-fashioned now, but many sketches are regarded as 'classic' British comedy.

P.P.S. If you don't know the Two Ronnies and you want to see one of their funnier sketches, here's one I like- the two guys in the pub:

This is a good example- very sharp old-fashioned gag writing. A little bit of casual sexism too unfortunately... but if you are willing to overlook that (it was broadcast about 30 years ago) it's a good sketch.

Wow, that was actually really cute! I hadn't heard of these guys before, but this may have just inspired me to look into some more of their stuff.

The actress playing the bride is adorable, and I love the way she sneezes. xD

Thanks for sharing!

Yipes! Someone commented while I was editing it! :)

Thanks Blah. It depends on personal taste, but I find many of their sketches funny (even if it's a bit old-fashioned, like I say).

And yeah... I like the bride's sneezes too. ;)
