Frage:
Vormittagsaktion  
von hexhex, 2011-02-17, 11:47  like dislike  Spam?  79.193.14....
Hello,
I can't seem to find a good equivalent to this expression "Vormittagsaktion". There is no further sentence. The context is a quick, "unwanted" marriage ceremony quickly done in the morning and then everyone went back to work, quasi "on-the-fly", but that doesn't quite fit...
thanks in advance for any ideas you may have.

If someone said Gretna Green wedding to me, I would think that the people had eloped, either actually to Gretna Green or just using it generically. Or, of course, that it took place in Gretna Green.

Obviously the background is that in Scotland weddings could be organised very quickly, you didn't need to wait two weeks while the banns were read, and Gretna Green is just over the border, but I think that most people would associate it with eloping rather than a wedding which just interrupted your day.

I really like the slapdash or over-the-counter wedding suggestion, but all the rest are great too. Thank you all very very much!

The main benefit of a Gretna Green wedding, being the nearest Scottish town to England, was that the age of consent to marriage was in Scotland traditionally 16, whereas in England (without parental approval) it used to be 21.  Young lovers could elope, marry, and return legally husband and wife.
