We’re Married!

After 3 1/2 years together, months of planning, lots of discussions and arguments, M and I have finally tied the knot on 31 July 2010. A special day surrounded by our loved ones, full of tears of joy, laughter and fun. It was one of the happiest days in our lives.

We had a destination wedding. The ceremony was held in a chapel of Slavkov Castle and followed by the reception and after dinner party at Comsa Brno Palace Hotel where we stayed which is around 15mins drive from the castle.

The ceremony started at 3pm, a simple religion ceremony which was beautiful and touching (I will tell you more later). It was in Czech language but our vows were in English. Our pastor speaks English fluently and he printed everything in English so that our non-Czech/Slovak speaking guests (including my family!) could understand the ceremony.

In the end of the ceremony, everyone came to congratulate us. I saw tears in my dad’s eyes. I’ve never seen him cried before. I already started crying and shedding tears after the pastor announced we’re now ‘husband and wife’. An old friend came, hugging me tight and started crying. From that moment onwards, I just couldn’t be bothered my makeup would be ruined. 🙂

Our reception didn’t start until 7:15pm. We had 5 courses. I’ve to say, we’re really pleased with the quality of the food. It was tasty and made our guests happy. I’m not a goat cheese person but I really enjoyed the salad course. The lamb shank was our wedding planner’s idea and we’re so glad we went for it. Panna Cotta is our favourite dessert, it’s something we had to include in the courses 😀

We cut the cake after the dinner, followed by our first dance. The after dinner party continued until 3am.

We’ve been married for more than 2 weeks now. Nothing has changed, not even my last name because we’ve agreed on keeping it. The only differences for me before and after the wedding are – now I’ve to wear 2 rings on my ring finger and I’ve to remember to refer him as my husband instead of my boyfriend.
