The Big Budapest Wedding

To put the cherry on the top of the 'wedding' cake this year, the last wedding was in Budapest where every little detail was perfect from the location to the food.

Not so usual from me, but I was the first one arriving there from the wedding crowd and so I could walk around a bit in my long princess style dress :) of which I will post tomorrow, but this post will concentrate on one of my oldest friend’s wedding in Budapest.

The location could not have been any better as it was in the Buda Castle district in the very well known, tourist magnet, gorgeously ornamented Matthias (Matthew’s) Church! The view from there over the city is mesmerising too!

We all gathered together in front of the church :) and it was again great to see friends I have not seen for ages.  There were some new boyfriends and girlfriends to be introduced and pretty soon we all were on the same wavelength. Then finally we saw the groom….and then the door of the church opened and the master of ceremony instructed us to go inside the church. Then, once we all sat in silence, overwhelmed by the ornaments and grandiosity of the church, the groom walked down the aisle, then my friend, the bride followed him to the altar. They both looked very good! Eniko’s wedding dress was simple and beautiful!

After a nice and short ceremony, followed by a group photo where we all had to shout ‘water-bike’ ‘vizibicikli’ instead of ‘cheese’ we walked towards the Academy of Music where the civil ceremony took place. That room with a gorgeous chandelier hanging above us, and the mesmerising views…was another great spot for this wedding. The ceremony was super short, but then many advices followed it for the married life.
In Hungary it is normal to thank for the parents and grandparents for bringing up their children to who they are now i.e. the couple themself.  Normally this is the moment when everyone’s eyes get some chilli in them. It is a very emotional moment, making even the groom to show emotions and tears in his eyes.

And before their happily ever after, we normally have a huge party to eat and dance till dawn and celebrate with them! The party was organised in Hemingway Restaurant in Buda side.  The starters were very similar to the other weddings, I was invited to, being foie gras followed by a typical chicken soup. Yummy! :) For main we had a buffet with 5 different types of food to serve all needs for different diets. There were gnocchi, wild boar, beef, turkey, vegetables and fish too.  Later desserts and the midnight menu were served too, because in Hungary the wedding does not stop at midnight! We fill up the people again, so they can drink more and dance more, really until the morning sun lights up the sky! :)
