Waitati resident Mandy Mayhem (40) leads Lani Morrison
(33), of Port Chalmers, and a bevy of brides during "all brides
day" at Doctors Point Beach, north of Dunedin, on Saturday.
Nearly 100 brides danced on the sand to convince the gods to
continue the world.
Ms Mayhem said the heavens opened on Saturday but when the
brides walked on the beach the rain stopped.
The brides congregated in a bid to save civilisation by
appeasing the gods and stopping the Mayan calender prediction
of the world ending on December 21.
