Relationships in a generation of social media

Rom-coms in social media

Rom-coms are the perfect escapism from our everyday lives, where true love conquers all and Prince Charming always makes an entrance right on cue. But what would our favourite rom-com couples look like if they were to meet today, in the generation of social media? 

Would Mr Darcy have swiped right for Elizabeth Bennett in 2018? Would rom-com favourites Bridget Jones and Mark Darcy have made it as a couple if What's App messaging confusion was added into the mix? Or would Rhett Butler and Scarlett O’Hara have any chance of happiness in a world of Snapchat stories? 

WHY I WANT TO BE THE UK’S FIRST SOCIAL MEDIA WEDDING BRIDE

 Zoe Anastasi and Will Diggins social media weddings

 

A bride has told of her excitement as she prepares to take part in the UK’s first official social media wedding.

Zoe Anastasi’s big day will be captured and broadcast by iPhone-carrying photographers every 15 minutes on social media. Her ceremony will be live streamed over Twitter and there will be social media walls at her reception. Her day has even been organised over Facebook.

For Zoe, from Derby, it was a no-brainer to have a professionally-run social media wedding.

“Your wedding day is the biggest day of your life. You worry that it’s over in 24 hours, and I think it’s great to enjoy the build-up, to get more people involved in it. It makes it more special.
