Wedding on Spiekeroog


You probably noticed that I have been absent a lot. One of the reasons is the very poor and terminal health of my dad but there is also a positive reason:

I got married last week!

We had a very small civil wedding on Spiekeroog which is one of the North Sea islands. My parents, my sister, Alex's parents and his brother. Unfortunately my sister in law couldn't come but as she is highly pregnant with twins, she had a pretty good reason! Can't wait to become an auntie!

We arrived on the island two days before the wedding and were greeted with very sunny and very unlike weather for November. So we got to explore the island in sunshine and got to see a wonderful sunset over the North Sea! The next days were a bit more stormy and rainy but that was perfectly fine with us. After all, we decided to get married in November on an island! Actually, I quite enjoyed the stormy weather. :)

The ceremony was wonderful and very special. We got married in the small city hall and got to spent some time there afterwards (photos & sparkling wine). My mum gave a very touching speech and it was so special that my dad could be there. I am really grateful!

Oh - and I got to wear my bonfire beanie in some wedding shots! A pic will follow I promise! My brother in law took the most amazing weddings pics and will post them to us soon!

And as the bonfire beanie got to play such a wonderful part in the wedding, we put the pattern on special. Use the code Wedding on Ravelry to get 60 % off for some days!

Hope you will have an amazing weekend!

Take care
