They were together during a happy day. However, she felt resentful. Eventually, he was not happy either.

FMOI, based on humorous comments made by a friend. Since I was away: A Happy New Year to all the co-puzzlers and congrats to Peter for his new assignment

Does the therm "happy day" refers to x-mas? new year? hallowen? another common holiday? or a birthday? anniversary? a sunny day?

Was this a happy they to them? or to others?

Was this a happy they to them? If by 'they' you mean 'day' this and... or to others? ... presumably this too

Them= 2 people? 3? 5? 10? more? If by 'them' you mean 'they' in the puzzle statement, then 2
Them= H?A?M? F? Mixed? Assuming the above, one HAM (Woodworm will be pleased) and one HAF
Time and location relevant? It happened three days ago in Rome. But both the time and location are largely irrelevant -- assume this century in Europe

The cause of her resentfulness was:
someone else? if so, his/hers words or actions?
something else? if so, weather? food? disappointment of some sort? something about travelling?
Rome is their home city or were they travelling? Relevant?
Any misunderstanding involved? She mistook something as offensive? insultive? Or was it deliberately offensive? insultive?

So: someone else caused her disappointment by his actions, right?
She was disappointed with: that someone? that what happened? the day? Rome? Italy? Her husband?
Are the details of time and location of the event that caused her resentfulness relevant?
Was her becoming resentful justified? Or she exagerated?
She was resentful towards someone? her husband? that another person? towards something? or just resentful in general?

I try to establish how she expressed her resentfulness, but it is difficult to ask questions about. That's why it lookes like I'm asking the same questions over and over again
Did she express her resentfulness to: her husband? that another person? everybody in sight?
Did she express her resentfulness by: not talking to people? demostrating her bad mood? crying? shouting at somebody?
She didn't express her resentfulness at all, she just felt so?
The specific location: outside? inside? home? government building? entertainment building? shop? restaurant/cafe?

Did she express her resentfulness to: her husband? Yes that another person? Probably everybody in sight? Unknown and irrelevant
Did she express her resentfulness by: not talking to people? demostrating her bad mood? crying? shouting at somebody? That is unknown and irrelevant. Somehow she made it clear that she was not pleased
She didn't express her resentfulness at all, she just felt so? No
The specific location: outside? This one, so no to the rest inside? home? government building? entertainment building? shop? restaurant/cafe?

So, the outside: a park? a street? an outdoor stadium? outdoor car parking? other?
The action that caused resentfulness was positive (like someone did something unwanded) or negative (like someone didn't do something expected)?

Would it be helpful to learn the country this took place on? No, but you can assume Rome, even though it is irrelevant If so, is it on [LTPF list of continents]?

So, the outside: a park? a street? This, but there's more to it. No to the rest an outdoor stadium? outdoor car parking? other?

::pokes Balin:: sorry... it's one of my peeves, though in theory it could be defended in this situation :-)

The thing she was resentful about -- was it directly related to their wedding (for example, the caterer didn't show up)? or did it just happen to coincide with the wedding (for example, there was a car accident outside the church)?

Was it something someone said to her? them? as they left the church? The person who caused her resentment -- is he/she a passerby? part of the celebration? (part of the wedding party? a guest?)

Ok, so someone who caused her resentfulness was someone hired by the couple in connection with the wedding? Driver? Person who organises wedding? Priest? Florist? Musicians?
Was any of the details changed in comparison to what had been planned? If so: the detail is now: inappropriate? considered unlucky?
Any wedding traditions/customs/prejudices/superstitions relevant?

Ok, so newly married couple went out of the church and then someone hired by them in connection with wedding did something that made her resentful. The incident is more or less about this, that something unwanted happened instead of something expected. She felt resentful because she seemed to consider the incident unlucky. Is that all correct?
The incident is connected with something that happens commonly on weddings immediately after exiting church?

Does it have anything to do with how they leave the church? like a limo? or a carriage? or just a car?

Does the "something" happen immediately after: exiting the church building? Exiting the church grounds?

Does the "something" happen immediately after: exiting the church building? Normally this around here, and relevant to the puzzle... Exiting the church grounds?... but this also might be the case. Also before going to the church and at the reception

Is the thing that was supposed to happen something that generally happens at all weddings? all weddings of a certain faith? only at weddings that meet certain criteria (for example, the saber arch happens only at a military wedding)? (theoretically) at only a few weddings?

Was she resentful because it didn't happen at all? because it happened in a way she didn't want it to? because it failed in some way?

Is the thing that was supposed to happen something that generally happens at all weddings? I'd say yes, but I have a limited experience - Christian, orthodox and catholic all weddings of a certain faith? Religion is not relevant only at weddings that meet certain criteria (for example, the saber arch happens only at a military wedding)? (theoretically) at only a few weddings? No to the rest -- it is a very common thing, so to speak, that can happen even outside a wedding ceremony

Was she resentful because it didn't happen at all? No, good question because it happened in a way she didn't want it to? Yes, and ... because it failed in some way? ... Yesish

Are any common superstitions relevant? like broken glass/mirrors, black cats etc.?
Taking photos relevant? Was the person who caused the incident a photographer?

Are any common superstitions relevant? like broken glass/mirrors, black cats etc.? No to both
Taking photos relevant? Was the person who caused the incident a photographer? A big Yes! to both

This can be $poiled right now, but let's wait a little bit to see if we can determine what his mistake was

Ok, so the thing that was wrong with the pictures... Did the photographer shoot the newlyweds separately? Or when they looked silly/ridiculous? Did the bride not liked herself on the photos?

Enough of this, let's proceed to the

******* SPOILER *******

Our photographer, not being a professional wedding photographer but rather an artist-to-be, tried to shoot some unconventional pictures for a very conservative couple... one of those being shooting the groom while his bride's shadow was on the ground...! Which of course enraged her and eventually enraged the groom himself.

The idea sparked from a little conversation that we have a few days ago in Rome, after my wife took a similar picture and tried to convince a friend -- this time a professional -- that he should try those new techniques for a real wedding. "God forbids" -- he answered -- "I won't get any contract afterwards... It's good for an exhibition but wrong for the public"


Thanks to all who participated, especially Marta and Matt for sticking with it to the end!
