Tine and Lars's Wedding, July 4 2015

Tine Zickert Jensen and Lars Britz got married at Aarhus City Hall at 11:15 Saturday, July 4 2015. Afterwards there was a reception/party at their place in a big tent, with about 30 guests. Here the photos, taken with three different cameras: Thomas's own Panasonic TZ30, which he soon abandoned and took over Lars's fancy Nikon; and my Nikon 1F. I have weeded out those where we took the same thing, choosing the best one in each case, and the gallery below is therefore a mix of photos from all three cameras.

Apart from the family, of course: Tine's parents Lene and Gert and Lenes twin sister ("moster") Anne and Tine's grandmother Alice, and Sandy and I, Ruth and Thomas, there were a lot of friends of both, including school friends of Lars, Tine's best friends Katrine and Tine (the other); spouses, plus some friends Tine made from the mothers' group she went to after the twins were born.

Now moving from the City Hall to Sophus Bauditz Vej, for the party.

It was held mainly in a big party tent they had rented but as it was a nice sunny day it was also nice outside the tent.
There were two other mothers, with very young babys, there.
There were of course speeches, coordinated by Katrine, MC

The band: Ruthie (trumpet), Gert (guitar), me (harmonica) playing the Bridal Waltz (Niels Gade), a wedding must-do. It ends with the guests dancing and closing in on the couple, lift up the groom (Lars) and cut off the ends of his socks.

More food late afternoon. They got the excellent kiosk "Koc" to make shawarma on the spot, and it was good.
