Wedpocalypse: A ‘Good Omens’ wedding
We knew from the beginning that we were not getting legally married and are ethically non-monogamous. When asked to come up with an alternative to a wedding, I was re-reading a beloved Neil Gaiman book (and binging the TV series) Good Omens… so we came up with Wedpocalypse.
