story coz I haven't had enough time to work on it yet, but I did
want to put the pics online, so live with it.
On a beautiful day, the 20th of july Donna and I
had planned to get handfasted. The spot we chose was near an old
oak tree beside which there was a small chapel.
It began with the priestess invoking the spirits of
earth, moon, sun and stars and addressing all present and asking
them to help create positive energy. Then it was time for the vows
which Donna and I had prepared. I must say that Donna did hers in
both english and dutch, which quite impressed me. Next in the ceremony
was the sharing
of wine. After everyone had a sip it was time for the two witnesess
our hands together. Donna and I finally got to kiss and eternalised
hands and rings.
Before the feast started everyone lit
a candle in the small chapel which made a very pretty
picture. I was getting pretty hungry by then, but of course
we still needed some good wedding pictures which were taken near
tree and in front of the corn
Then the time for the feast
had come and everyone dug in real good. Of course our priestess
had to taste
that wonderful pie Bertil made. Donna and I managed not to mess
up our clothes too badly when feeding
eachother. To let the food settle and cool down a bit in the breeze
we used our blindfolds as flags.
Now, what does a bride do after she gets married?
Of course she runs
off with another woman. (Who ever said I married a normal
person?) Once I managed to get her back it was time to sneak
off for a few kisses,
but I must say that you should always avoid getting
Finally everyone got rounded up for a group
photo and then it was time to do what newly wed couples do.
