Finally the day has arrived. Mummy tied a blue ribbon that matches her dress around my neck.
The afternoon began with cocktails in the wine cellar –We stayed for a little while and as there was nowhere to sit, Mummy decided there were too many feet around me in a small area. We went to the chapel where the wedding will be held. That way we can choose where we wanted to sit and decided the back row is the best.This way we get a good view of what was about to happen – two people walking down the aisle to be declared husband and wife.
This is us waiting for the bride and groom to arriveBefore long the wedding party trooped in and the proceedings began. It was all in German so we did not understand most of it but could follow the service.After two emphatic “JA!” – Sylvia and Markus were married! That’s Edgar, Mummy’s godson with his mother, Sylvia and her new husband, Markus.
And these two boys share a favourite memoryWhen Edgar was ten, Mummy took him and Henry to a Chelsea football match! And now they are both taller than her! And I had to be in the photo of course – Yay! Chelsea fans – and we’re even wearing the right colours.
Here are most of the hoomans who attended the wedding gathering for a group photo! The missing others like Mummy decided she wanted a capture part of that moment too!Then we went into this lovely hall for the wedding dinner. Mummy found her place – we were actually the last to arrive. Oops!I sat dutifully under the table all night
The food arrived but nothing seemed of interest to meAfter awhile I thought it was time to go when everyone stood up and went outside – but they were letting off balloons into the night sky Mummy had one and so did IEveryone sent them into the night skies with sparklers and good wishes for the newly married coupleAs the party wore on and two days later when faces have become more familiar, many came up to say hello to me. They’ve mostly heard of labradoodles in this part of the world but not a cockapoo.
Michael has a German Pincher And this is Isabel – she has a labrador and a Jack Russell and she LOVES dogs – can you tell?Finally it was time to go to bed – way past midnight
Gawd! I like sleeping on the soft bed rather than the wooden floors under the table.May’s comment: Lovely ceremony, lovely guests all beautifully turned out.
Wishing Markus and Sylvia very happy togetherness. They have truly inspired me to believe that when you least expect it, someone can come into your life who takes you by surprise. And that when one is about to give up on ever having a BIG LOVE, he comes along. Someone who is a perfect match – where the relationship is one of support, respect and unselfish love. Sylvia and Markus exemplify those qualities.
Love their choice of songs during the ceremony. When they were signing the marriage certificate, the singer with a most beautiful voice sang, “At Last” and a happy song “Fly Me to the Moon.”
