Wedding

So we got married this Saturday.

Our families trickled in over the past week from six cities in three countries: a total of ten of them. We met on Friday night for pizza and salad, and, the next morning, went over by mini-bus to the ceremony at the local register office. It's right next door to a public library. When taking photos outside, a woman, coming out of the library and establishing my role in the thing, asked me, based on my outfit, in the nicest possible way, if I were "a different sort of person". Yes, yes, I am.

The ceremony was short, and we collectively took lots of photos. We had soup at home, and a gorgeous cake of which more pictures anon. We'd brought the champagne back from our trip to France.

A couple of hours of relaxation and transportation later, we met up for a fabulous meal at The Square, a highly-rated central London restaurant. My most memorable dish was an hors d'oeuvre: deep-friend roe-and-black rice crackers with taramasalata dip. The next evening, after sleeping in, we met up again for a vegetarian feast at Rasa in Stoke Newington, in honor of my sister's birthday.

This morning, I failed to make it to central London to say goodbye to my family: foiled by the tube strike. My immune system clearly knows it is all over now as I came down with a cold this morning. Over the weekend, there were a couple of minor transportation snafus, but otherwise it went smoothly.

In conclusion? I have no interest in organizing a large event, at least no time soon. A small one was quite enough work.

...*laughing* Oh, that woman. Endearing! In a... different sort of way. ;)

I'm so glad you all came through in one piece! But sad the tube strike foiled your farewells.

You're the best. You're the first person to ask both sides of the question.

No, neither of us is changing our names.

Thank you!
