John Corby is sick of dealing with late brides. The English priest has decided that he's giving brides a 10-minute grace period on their wedding day. If they're any later in getting to Holy Cross Church in Bearsted or St Mary’s Church in Thurnham, he's charging them $135.
Corby's decision is less to make a quick buck and more for all the other people who work weddings, like the choir, organist, and bell ringers. "I wanted to show that I was taking my staff seriously because they weren’t doing it for the money," Corby adds. "I thought this is the way to do it."
No word yet on if he's had to dish out any fines.
