Ancient traditions meet modern fashions in an ostentatious culture clash in the world of 21st-century gypsy and traveller weddings.

Gaining rare access to this fascinating and often misunderstood community, Cutting Edge uses the prism of the weddings to reveal a culture where brides compete to have the biggest dress but having children out of wedlock is still taboo and divorce is unheard of.

Considered 'on the shelf' at 20, many girls in Gypsy and Traveller communities get married soon after their 16th birthday with the support of their family.

The weddings are visual spectacles: girls parade into church in enormous dresses that sometimes weigh more than the bride herself. Although the women look sexually provocative there is a tradition of premarital chastity that is increasingly unusual in Britain today.

This is a community that lives alongside but detached from mainstream society. It is a community of contrasts, living by centuries-old religious and cultural traditions but at the same time embracing the gaudier extremes of the celebrity- and fashion-obsessed times in which we live.

Used to work at Copthorne Hotel in my college days and one weekend we had to host a gypsie wedding reception. All I'm saying is pure fights broke out, one drunken gyspy rolled in out of no where shanked another one, tables and chairs went moving through tthe atmosphere at tremdous speeds.

all that being said

gypsy chicks tho>>>>>>>>>>>

Just do not get involved in the family

ROFL @ every male face in this picture.

Look at the dark-haired guy third from the right's expression. Priceless.

With the others, I'm laughing purely at facial features, their expressions are a secondary concern.

Bridesmaid with the ginger guy looks like Amy Winehouse fell asleep on a sunbed.

I love how you see the girls dressing like slores, but they MUST stay virgins until their wedding night :lol:

That's why so many of them try to get married so young so they can have sex :)
