December 18th 2009
We met in Paris in a conference in 2003. We saw each other again in 2005 and then we finally got together in September 2006.
Justin is 31 and I am 33.
In Buenos Aires, Argentina, in a nice hotel, with champagne, white roses…
I had a great hen party organized by my friends in Madrid in October last year. I was dressed like a princess we went to a flamenco class in famous place with a good teacher. We had dinner at a cool funky restaurant with live music, instead of tables you’re sitting on big white beds, the food was excellent!
Just by being there on the wedding day :).
I bought several items from confetti for our wedding.
I ordered several products online.
I bought it in London in London Bride Couture, is a dress called Versailles from Ian Stuart, it is very lovely.
I had 7 bridesmaids. They wore peach dresses, I bought the fabric and they picked the model, each of them wore a different kind of dress, all super classy and stylish.
They wore very nice suits we rented for them. He had 3 best men and 6 Ushers.
Both, we got married in Argentina so you have to have a civil ceremony first, and the next day we had the catholic ceremony.
In Argentina. We had a civil wedding on December 17th at a friend’s farm with loads of good food, good wine and we ended up jumping into the swimming pool! The religious ceremony was held at the church were I went to school in Argentina, beautiful and super nice.
At a place called Sociedad Rural, in Argentina too. The party started at 9 pm and ended at 9 am the next morning.
Yes, we hired shuttles to transport people from hotels to the civil ceremony place and to the church and venue the next day.
120 people. We didn’t have separate lists.
The theme were stars and the colour was peach/salmon.
We had a nice centrepiece which was tall with peach lilliums and roses. There were disposable cameras and stars and diamond scattered over the tables. Per person we had: little champagne bottles with our names, a little peach bag with sugar almonds inside and a card with the name of the guest…
Yes, to the foreigners (all Europeans) a typical Argentinean Mate tea pot with the straw and to the Argentineans a little English tea pot with a tea bag with our names on it
My bouquet was with white orchids and peach roses in a drop shape. The table’s centrepieces were with roses and liliums all in the theme of peach and ivory colours.
We had loads of food. A reception with many different meats, vegetables, canapes, etc. Then a starter (typical Argentinean) then a second (Argentinean beef) and dessert. We had a huge cake and dessert table after around 2 hours of the dessert and pizza later on…
A person made it for us, it was huge, with many levels and very carefully made.
We had tango dancers and two bands, a jazz band and a pop band.
We didn’t do a gift list.
Honeymoon in Patagonia. Our first night was at a nice hotel.
The arrival, when all the people were gathered waiting for us… But the whole party was great.
Some… It rained a lot (after 6 months of complete draught).
Not at all!
