An early start as I needed to exit my hotel. Packed and wandered over to my sisters hotel to leave my luggage as we were heading out to the Palace, an hour from Wroclaw, for the Tim and Natalia’s wedding.
The yellow wedding bus arrives to transport us all out to the Palace to check in to our accommodation for the night before taking us to the Church for the ceremony.
The marriage ceremony was simple and within a Mass in a Church centuries old. This Church had its own crypt that was a piece of art in its own right.
It’s always interesting to observe and participate in the differing cultures of other countries. Simple but meaningful.
The four gun salute of cellophane confetti awaiting the married couple outside the Church was a sight to behold. And when the breeze sent it into sparkling whirlpools the delight on the young children’s faces was delightful.
Then back on the yellow wedding bus to the castle for the reception which began full on at 4pm, ending at 4am the next morning.
Things I have learnt about a Polish wedding......
1. Hospitality is in their DNA
2. Food, food and more food.
3. Vodka shots bring all cultures together.
4. Fun is paramount.
5. Endless stamina
6. Party games avail.
7. The wedding celebrations continue into the afternoon the next day.
A good time was had by all! The Aussie contingent taught the Polish Nutbush on the dance floor and left their mark.
