ベルギーの結婚式に行ってきました。

「WEDDING IN BELGIUM」

Invitation.jpg

えぇもちろん出席したのは私ではなく、クレア一家のことです。
ついこの間、大学のお友達の結婚式に出席してきたそうです。

結婚式にすっかり呼ばれることも少なくなったお年頃の今(笑)
久々に新鮮な気持ちになれましたよ。

イタリア食材とは関係ありませんが、ご興味のある方はご覧になって下さいね♪

Gent 2
ここはベルギーのGentという町。結婚式はこの町の教会で行われました。
The wedding took place in Gent, in the Flemish part of Belgium, which is a very nice and university town (250.000 inhabitant, 60 km from the North Sea) and they brew such excellent beers there !
Gent 1
式はオランダ語で執り行われたため分からないことが多かったです(^^ゞ
First we met in the church (Sint-Michiel, a very big church, where the ceremony took place. It was a catholic ceremony, all in Dutch, we tried to follow on the leaflet they gave us, but we didn't understand much of it ! There were different pieces of music they liked, and a friend of hers sang Angels from Robbie Williams. It was very nice.

☆ちょっとここでベルギー豆知識
ベルギーという国はオランダ語の方言であるフラマン語と
フランス語の方言ワロン語を言語としている人に分かれています。
日本ではちょっとイメージが湧かない感じですよね。。

At the exit of the church
式の後教会の外で... 少し肌寒かったけれど、お約束の記念撮影。
At the end of the ceremony, as they came out of the church, the friends and family took a few photos and greeted them, wishing them luck, but it was very windy and a bit cold, so it didn't last very long !

一度宿泊先のホテルに戻り一休みしてから、今度はリセプション会場へ...
As we were invited at the hotel for the reception (for everybody who knows the couple or their parents) one hour later, we had time to go back to our hotel, rest a bit out of our shoes, take the gift and go to the other hotel where the reception and the diner-party took place (only restricted to the best friends and family). Just a 20 minutes' walk. The reception was on the ground floor level, where they had small round but high tables, just for you to put down your drink, without interrupting your conversation with somebody else.

リセプションでサーブされたピンチョスなど、数ある前菜の中で一番素晴らしかった一品はコレ!
We were served all kinds of small appetizers, usually they all stand in one hand, but there is a photo of one of the most beautiful, and excellent one.
3 Italian girls with the couple
左のカップルが新郎新婦。真ん中の二人はイタリア人の友人。右に居るのは娘のマディです。
Some people took other photos of the new couples and their parents and themselves. In this occasion we met 2 other Italian girls (one I already knew) that were also present at the wedding and were very nice.

The basement for the diner
ディナー会場はココ。お食事も最高でしたが、ケーキカットの演出で使われた4段ケーキも凄く美味でした。
Then for the diner it took place in the basement which was really amazing ! They had round tables for 8 people and we looked for our places. The diner was really excellent and at the end they half spent the lights, one waitress walks around the room with one big candle to announce the cake ! They bring this high cake (4 levels) and look for the couple to come forward to cut the cake : but the couple is nowhere to be found !!!!
So they sent a waiter to look for them upstairs and after more than 5 minutes they finally came to cut the cake, which was really good (very soft, not too sweet, with a layer of fruit on it).

DANCEING TIME!!!! をパチリ-☆ 女子ばっかりなのは気のせいかしら?
After what they took out 2 tables, but left some chairs to make place for dancing ! Nice music, not too loud, we could still speak to somebody else, but mostly for young people to dance on.

なんと私たち一家はパーティの最後まで(午前3時)居残ってました(*^^*)
We took our leave around 3 o'clock in the morning after that most of the people had left.
It was really a nice party, we enjoyed ourselves very much !

テンション上がる楽しいレポートでしたね。(クレア、素敵な写真もどうもありがとう!!)

欧米の結婚式には参加したことが無いのですが、
一昨年の5月、ロンドン、スローンスクエアの教会で友人の甥っ子のクリスニング(洗礼式)に
出席した時のことを懐かしく思い出しました。

式の後、宿で少し休んでからバークレイホテルでレセプションがあって。
その後夕食会~ダンスパーティ。そしてバーで立ち呑み。。私も2時くらいまで付き合った記憶が。

結婚式やパーティっていくつになっても心弾む行事ですよね。

The new couple dancing
どうぞ末永くお幸せに
