Hello my dear friends,
Now im married woman, Gerbel Mikk-Poortmans. Who still doesnt know, on 17 of October i got married with lovely belgian guy, Guy Poortmans, in Wilrijk-Antwerpen, Belgium. In Estonian magazine "Kroonika" there is an article about us, how we met ;) ..though it is in Estonian. To make the story short ;) ..we met online and we knew that we should be together already before we first met in real life, meeting was just a confirmation of our feelings :) Lovely! :) A hint, soon there will be also wedding picture in Kroonika ;)Now, after 5 month knowing each other, we are married. Seems like a fairy tale.
The wedding was very lovely in one small castle, as simple as it could be. On 17th my day started already 0630am, did my make-up and went to hair dresser. Wedding was at 10.45 am and followed by lunch-dinner reception in near by restaurant "Den Bourgondier" with our witnesses, Guy's parents and relatives. Unfortunatly, my best friend Aire couldnt come to wedding but surely we will celebrate it with her and Co ;) in the future. Otherwise we celebrated it with my mom and few other friends when we were in Estonia for my contest in the beginning of October.
So it was nice cozy wedding with 15 adults and 2 kids (Peggy's (Guy sister) 2 kids). The food was wonderful and of course cava, wine as well ;) and therefore on behalf of me and Guy and all the quests i would like to thank our cook and all the staff for giving us a such a great day :)
We finished there around 1730 and lets say the party didnt finished with that ;) .. we took a small nap at home and went to one fishing club party ;) .. Guy's brother is a member there and as we didnt really have any other plans for that evening, then we went there, listened an old music what DJ put together, danced and had fun :) ...it was a nice party.
Next day was sort of lazy as you all can imagine, long day and long evening behind. We had only one thing we had to take care of and it was to pay a bill for the restaurant. Uhhhhh, yes, it was more then we planned but as we and everybody else had a great food and drinks then it was worth it ;) .. though now we need to keep us a bit tight with spending for some time ;) .. ohh well.. we are happy as never before and thats what counts and is important :)
Oke.. it was a short overview about the wedding. I put 2 pictures here when we still were at home ;) ...all the rest, i mean, the gallery i will put up as soon as we will do some selection from the pictures what our photographers did. Thanks to Kurt (Peggy's husband) and Ivo (Guy's uncle) we have about 7-800 pictures to make a selection ;)
Thank you all present and being with us on this wonderful day. Bedankt allemaal! :)
Enjoy and i will write soon again. I know i havent done so much updating in my website but all the contest, wedding and now another contest preparation takes its time. Hope to be better after all these important events ;)
My best love and lots of luck to all of you,
Still the same happy Gerbel ;)
