How do world citizens marry?
I know the typical Dutch wedding, but what will the wedding of
& Annet be like?
This awesome twosome has seen too much of the world.
I've met them everywhere: Sri Lanka, Nepal, Vietnam, Australia and last winter
in Kluang, Malaysia.
The Netherlands are just a pitstop for them. The wedding card was from Singapore, typical Chinese with golden print. These are symbols of wealth and prosperity. And this week they are in beautiful Sydney working on a new contract.
Anyway, I do have trouble imagining this twosome as a Dutch wedding couple. Rob in a dark suit? Annet in a white wedding gown? While waiting for the couple I have my first beer.
And the wedding couple does not disappoint me:
The double 'yes' word falls. These two are now a married couple. What a difference a wedding document makes.
In the afternoon a fine boat trip below the city of Den Bosch. I never knew that the folk here built houses on top of the canals.
The rest of the day is relaxed as well, without the typical Dutch obligatoires. No long reception, no dance party, no nagging with family made acts. No, this wedding starts, continues and ends with a beer. And that is the way that suits me. (Better not share this with my girlfriend, I'll end up next to a purple wedding gown before I know it)
Rob & Annet, cheers mates, CU down under.
