Hi, friends, when you are reading this post I am already burying my toes in Egyptian sand, hiding in the shade, reading a book (OMG, I am finally reading a book again🎉), swimming, simply enjoying the sweetness of life. Read more ›

The Imperial Wedding – A Big Fat Liechtensteinian Wedding

HZ_Kaiser_1460_D75_2101.jpg

Yes, sure, there are much bigger wedding parties. But then again 80 guests are already a lot. And I have never attended a wedding with so much thoughtfulness on all ends like this one. The frames on the table of the bridal couple are one of those little details which amazed me. So sweet. And it went like this the whole evening through.

The wedding party took place at a big and atmospheric vineyard. We were welcomed by the DJ who played on the Saxophone outside for a first welcome drink.HZ_Kaiser_1592_D80_1143

There were separate rooms for the extensive wedding dinner,

(Here is an excerpt of the room. Every table was dedicated to the theme of a Disney movie. The couple decorated every table in the colors of the movie. I was seated at the Frozen table.)

and there was a place for the “photo box”. Here the guests could take pictures for the couple or themselves and there was a coffer with items to masquerade and make the shootings more fun. The photos were immediately printed and meant that we put them into a book and add some words for the couple. A book for the couple with happy moments of that evening.

Once the couple arrived my son-in-law’s brother welcomed them with his helicopter (he is the European Champion 2014 of model aircraft).

Of course also over here the restoring procedure continued…

There were so many highlights and very touching moments. When the newlyweds exchanged their vows for example. The deep love they feel for each other and the strong bond that connects them, the gratitude and awareness for the gift of each other… really, that touched everybody’s heart deeply. What was extremely beautiful were the gifts the two had for each other. The groom created 365 hearts. On every heart, he put a reason why he loves his bride. The bride created a slideshow about their incredible story of how they met. She sang to it live… of course the songs where Disney songs since both love Disney. They were given the collective present of the guests which is a collection of recipes for the couple individually designed from each guest. We got to see the slideshow of both of their wedding-eve-parties (which was hilarious). But there was so much more like the slideshow of us parents, the gifts of both witnesses, a lottery where 12 people were randomly picked via numbers to gift the couple with something specific each month (I was picked too and lucky to go for an ice cream with them in July… yay), there was the wedding dance, a helicopter show at night, … It would be too much to go into detail of each and every surprise and performance. You know what, I simply let the photos speak. Enjoy!

Hmm, and regarding my shoes… the second pair could not heal what the first pair had already damaged… it was a big relief to throw them into a corner at 3 am.

In Love and Light

The Imperial Wedding – The Church

HZ_Kaiser_1364_D80_1052

I am sorry that it took me so long to post part two. Once we received the photos from the official photographer it was already December and I had no time to go for this post. But eventually, here we are. In part 1 I wrote about the preparations, the hectic, my and my daughter’s nervousness, and the unexpected challenge we had to face when I was already about to leave for the church. If you want to read about it, please click here. So, once out of there I enjoyed the cool October air when rushing to the car in my full-length, narrow dress, and my high-heels. I was really nervous since I was a little behind my schedule. As you may remember, I still had a job to do in the church which only a handful people knew about. Read more ›

The Imperial Wedding – The Preparation

IMG_20181020_104732.jpgHere we go with the first post of the big wedding. Perhaps you are wondering about the title. Why “imperial”? This is a word play with my daughter’s new sure name which is “Kaiser”. Translated into English it means “Emporer”. I always said that my little princess becomes an empress. Anyway, let’s finally start with the story. Read more ›

💖Just Married💖10/10/18

IMG-20181011-WA0019.jpgLast Wednesday, my daughter married her dream man and my son-in-law his dream girl. It was only the civil part which we all did not think was much of a big deal but it turned out more touching and emotional than expected. It is a gift and a blessing – more than I can express – to see my princess and her new husband so happy. He is one of those men, who anticipates a woman every wish. It is his greatest happiness to see her happy. She is fully aware of that and does the same for him. Amazing how they read each other. A dream couple! Read more ›

London – July 22nd, 1988

I decided to leave the matter and take no action at all about the recent fraud attempt on my bank account. From the description given of the person who attempted to withdraw money from my account, I know exactly who it was. He no longer lives at my previous address, nor indeed in London. All I know is that he moved back to the North-east of England, but I have no idea where. However, if he crosses my path ever again, then I will make it known that I know exactly what he tried to do to me. The bank has now closed the matter. Thank goodness the Bureau de Change kept hold of the bank card. The chequebook has been cancelled, and they…
