A Gorgeous German Wedding

This is more of a personal post, but I will try to add some generic advice for people attending a German Wedding. 

Tanbay has many many cousins, this one (on the left) is called Timo: 

We were lucky enough to be able to attend his wedding to Carina. The only real difference I found between their wedding and an English wedding (apart from that everyone spoke German) was what was worn. 

In the morning, for the church service we wore smart casual:

And in the evening for the sit down meal and disko we dressed smart 

The morning church service took place in this cute little church: 

There's a fire engine outside because Timo is a volunteer. There weren't any fires. Keine Sorge.

As far as I could tell, the service was the same as an English one, except in German.

They had a choir at the back who serenaded the newlyweds, it was a lovely service. 

The evening part was my favourite though, we had a sit down meal and a disko and later on a buffet. 

I love a good buffet. 

They also lifted up the couple, I'm not really sure why. 

Their first dance was in a candlelit circle, which was lovely. 

All in all it was a fun and romantic wedding! Germans certainly know how to party, or at least these ones did.
