After months of preparations and stress finally the big day is here. People always say that the wedding day is one of the best day of your life… I always thought: “Yeah right!!” But now I understand completely what they mean.
After a surprisingly good sleep we woke up at 8. We had a coffee and were quite relaxed and calm. At 11.30 Gertjan went to the hairdresser and I went to the wedding location for a final check. The ceremony, toasting, dinner and party is held in Ferry Grand Cafe. It looked great! So confidently I went home to get dressed.
Our bridal maids and our photographer arrived. We were almost ready with our suits. Then the ‘outfit’ for the doggies. And then we were ready for the big day. We went outside to have our pictures taken with the skyline of Rotterdam in the background. And they turned out splendid. It was such a nice weather.
After the photo shoot our good friend Jeffrey picked us up in his marvelous car. By now I am a nervous wreck and I started shaking. Gertjan is jabbering, blablabla… saying “I am not nervous at all.” (sure Gertjan)
We arrived at Ferry Grand Cafe. There were so many people and I was really surprised. Our good friend Roy was our wedding civil servant and he had such a sweet and touching speech.
Then Roy asked us to stand up and give each other our right hands. He asked us to answers his question. And of course we both said YES!!
