A-Z C is for Chuppa

There are lots of candidates for C

Celebration, Caterers and many others but I've settled on Chuppa

A chuppah is the ceremonial canopy that a Jewish couple stand under for their wedding ceremony.  Made of a cloth sheet supported by four poles.  A chuppah can be a portable structure held by attendants to the ceremony or more often a temporary structure erected where the ceremony takes place. 

This temporary structure symbolizes the home the newly weds will create, showing that it is open to all from all sides.  

The beauty of this, and it's simplicity is that a Chuppa can be erected anywhere, there is one here that was used to march the bride and groom into the Old City of Jerusalem
