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.
That’s why I’m a Happy Hotelier!
Off to receive the newly wed couple.
