Alphorn Blower, Wedding Newspapers and some interesting games!……..

Well Monika and Lee’s wedding was held in Ramsgate, Kent but there were some very definite Swiss influences as that is where Monika originally hails from. As you might expect the proceedings went like clockwork (without the cuckoos!) but a really fun day was had by all.

The day started fairly relaxed with a trip to the hairdressers for hair-dos and manicures….

…..and then back to Monika’s to get prepared for the big event.

The wedding was held at St Ethelbert’s RC Church where a beautiful ceremony took place without a hitch. We even had some pretty cool flower girls!

Then we all headed over to St Augustine’s where the swiss fun really started. With a party about 35 strong the Swiss contingent were determined to leave their mark by having some traditional Swiss entertainment and they did not disappoint. First of we were all welcomed by an Alphorn Blower…..

At the meal even the favours had a Swiss influence….

….. and the guests were presented with a Wedding Newspaper all about Monika and Lee’s past lives leading up to todays events – with sections in both
English and Swiss-German of course.

There was time for the traditions that the English guests would have found more familiar like confetti throwing and cake cutting……

……but then it was back to more fun and games . This time while Monika did the washing up and Lee the drying, but to make it a bit more interesting the couple were separated by a sheet so that they couldn’t see eachother. Yep, you guessed it – Monika had to throw the dishes to Lee over the sheet! We had a ‘smashing’ time to say the least!

It was then on to the evening reception where the entertainment was a little more ‘usual’ but no less fun. We were even treated to some dancing by Lee, for which he is apparently quite infamous amoung his friends…..
