Wedding of The Week (3): in an Irbit Ural Retro Bike


An old post of the blog Retro To Go, “A Guide to All Things Hip and Retro”, reminded me that one couple that honored our premises to start their honeymoon in, got married in a hip Irbit Ural Retro sidecar motorbike. On the European Distributor’s webside you can find all about this retro bike.

Confessions of a Hotelier: Two Brides – One (G)room…almost

2-brides-one-g-room

Our small luxurious 3 suites hotel is the Siamese twin of our own terraced townhouse. It’s front door is always closed and I always receive our guests personally. Sometimes I receive several just married couples after their wedding party in the middle of the night (early in the morning). Also this time…

Couple 1 had the key already, because they had stayed the night before their wedding.
Couple 2 had not arrived yet.
It was approx 02.15 AM
I had fallen asleep in my chair…watching some night movie.

My wife was in bed already and woke me up: “Darling, I believe they’ve arrived. I believe I hear something next door”
I listened and said “No, I don’t hear anything… not possible…they didn’t ring the doorbell…I would have known”

A few moments later:
“Ring Ring” the telephone. “Yes we are Couple 2 and, err, I’m now taking a bath, but we thought this is kind of strange, because we believed we would be welcomed personally and we didn’t see anybody”
Me: “I’m glad you called! Yes you are right it is our intention to always welcome everybody personally!..I have several things here ready for you” (champagne and sandwiches that I subsequently served to the room)…

Turned out Couple 1 had checked themselves in and left the front door ajar without them or me noticing and Couple 2 had thought there was an electric door opener. Luckily they had taken the correct suite ….

Wedding of the Week (2): The Happy Valentine's Bride

It happens that in stead of arriving tired and full of adrenaline after the wedding to stay with us for the honeymoon, the bride and /or the groom stay with us the previous day and start the big day with hairdresser, make up, and so on and so fort.

The inner circle of wedding guests arrives and they depart together to the wedding, come back for dressing up for the reception and come back sometimes for the dinner or for the party to dress up again.

Our Valentine’s bride did it a bit different. She stayed with us with a friend and her daughter on Friday and left without her man to meet him in church in front of the altar.

Very romantic and a bit old fashioned. In my days the groom used to collect the bride at her parents’ house and they would go with the wedding escort to the wedding.

However our bride was not alone. Thirteen of her friends, the photographer, a cameraman with video and the make up artist were all part of the escort.
