Subject: [Lon] Christmas weddings

My g-grandparents were married on Christmas Day 1856 in St Pancras Parish Church. Looking at the parish register, I was amazed at the number of weddings on that day in the same parish. It seems most improbable that each one would have had a full length ceremony of the type we are nowadays familiar with. It made me wonder whether cut-price weddings were available on days such as Christmas. They could certainly have economised by combining the wedding reception with a Christmas party! Does anyone have an explanation?
