Model Answer 1:
I’m going to describe my sister’s wedding day, which took place a few years ago in the town where I grew up. For my sister, it was the biggest and most important day of her life.
I think there were around 100 people at the marriage ceremony, which was held in a church. Even more, people came to the party or the wedding reception as we call it, after the ceremony. Of course, most members of my family were there, as well as the groom’s family and a collection of the bride and groom’s friends and colleagues.
To make the celebration special, we did what families normally do. My mother made sure that the church and the reception venue were nicely decorated – there were flowers everywhere! Obviously, we all dressed for the occasion, and there were bridesmaids, gifts, a huge wedding cake, and so on.
I enjoyed the occasion because it was great to see my sister so happy on her big day. The ceremony was perfect, and we all had a fantastic time at the reception. It’s rare for me to see all of my family and friends together in one place, so that’s probably what made the day so memorable for me.
