"So How Long With This Ordeal Take?"

I was working with a beautiful adventurous couple recently, who decided to take a break between walking two of NZ’s top walking tracks (Milford and Routeburn) to get secretly married in Paradise, near Glenorchy. We started to discuss dates, hair and makeup, flowers and other important details before the bride asked: “So how long will this ordeal take?”. This made me giggle as the definition of an ordeal is: "A very unpleasant and painful or difficult experience”... AND that is definitely not the experience I want for any of our couples.
