Wedding at City Hall

A wedding at the City Hall is much simpler than a church wedding. A city functionary reads the bride and groom the obligations that marriage implies (for example: cohabitation, support of the family by both the husband and the wife, supporting any children and guiding them into the career of their choice). Then both the couple and their witnesses sign a lot of papers and presto, bingo, they're married!
What a beautiful bride! Her name is Katia and she is not from Molfetta, nor even Italian actually. She is Bulgarian, studied to be a beautician in Germany and works in the tourism industry here in Apulia. She speaks Bulgarian, Russian, German, Italian and English...pretty impressive!

Lovely indeed! And all those languages are definitely impressive. Congratulations to her and the groom!

VP said...

the bride is a real beauty, and not only that, it seems. My congratulations to the newlyweds...

Cezar and Léia said...

Everyone looks so serious in the first image!

«Louis» certainly admires the bride for learning so many languages!

Katia is a brilliant and beautiful woman! Congratulations to the couple! I must say that they all don't look very cheerful in the top photo and they've just got to get rid of the "fig leaf" position for a photo! Hands at your sides - just a pet peeve of mine.

That first photo could be from a movie! Love it!

This is truly a gorgeous young lady. I can't even begin to imagine linguistic skill like that.

Hell, I can barely speak English.

This is a fun post, Saretta!

When I first glanced a the first picture, I thought I was looking a funeral. Rather somber faces.

Luis Gomez said...

Beautiful bride. Nice ceremony shot.

Saretta said...

Yes, they do look dreadfully serious, don't they? Maybe they were pondering all those marital obligations!

Leif - I can't believe you of all people could criticise a "leif" hand position! ;-)

Louis - thanks for the link!
