Two weekends ago, for the first time ever in my life I covered a wedding. It was the wedding of two close friends of mine, and I did the "job" for free and in lieu of any other wedding present. They have meanwhile got the photo book and are totally over the moon with it. Everyone who has seen that book so far loves it (if I may say so) and I had to order two new ones for the respective mothers. Well, why is there a Part 1 and also going to be a Part 2? This is because we are in Germany. In my country, no priest, minister, pastor, clergyman or whatever is the right word has the right to perform the legal matters of marriage. The legal marriage MUST be done at the registrar's office, in front of the registrar. And in most cases, that registrar must perform the necessary things in his office and cannot move elsewhere. So the couple in question got married "twice", as it were, first in the registrar's office, and a day later in church. The first set of pics is from the first day: 1. Saying "Yes" 2. 3. Doing the necessary formalities Kissing the bride/new legal wife: 4. 5. "What??? That kiss was no good???- Right-o. Let's try again at once!" 6. Part 2 to follow soon.
