Binational weddings are for sure a big passion of mine. My multicultural identity problems might be a reason for this and I’m happy to share them with many of my clients. 🙂
Anna and Tomáš met in Prague and had a happy ending to their long distance relationship between the Czech Republic and Frankfurt when they said yes to each other at their civil ceremony at the Herrenhaus Gut Bliestorf in the beautiful North of Germany. Anna works for an airline and is constantly on the move. So, Tomáš proposed when she picked him up once (this is so romantic!) at the airport. Maybe naturally, I met both of them for the first time in Munich, at the airport, between connecting flights and their story makes me think of the opening monologue from the movie “Love actually” and why we all somehow love the arrival gates.
“Whenever I get gloomy with the state of the world, I think about the arrivals gate at Heathrow Airport. General opinion’s starting to make out that we live in a world of hatred and greed, but I don’t see that. It seems to me that love is everywhere. Often it’s not particularly dignified or newsworthy, but it’s always there – fathers and sons, mothers and daughters, husbands and wives, boyfriends, girlfriends, old friends. When the planes hit the Twin Towers, as far as I know none of the phone calls from the people on board were messages of hate or revenge – they were all messages of love. If you look for it, I’ve got a sneaky feeling you’ll find that love actually is all around.”
Here is the beginning, from their happy ending:
Thank you, Anna and Tomáš for the great memories and also for this surprise! 🙂
