Anke and Frank’s Wedding

Did you notice that for the past two weeks I have been posting three times a week? I want to make a habit of it. There will be posts on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

I had a very good reason to miss out on Friday’s post as I had a wedding. And not just to attend but also to decorate and to bake cakes for.

My sister’s friends, Anke and Frank, got married. They met later in life, both unattached without children and no previous marriages. They tied the knot in my sister’s (restaurant) garden last Friday in front of friends and family. It was a most magical encounter.

My sister and I teamed up. I baked all the cakes, made the wedding bouquet and the bridesmaids bouquets and together with my sister I filled dozens of vintage apothecary bottles with flowers.

It was so nice to mix our styles together so that everything still looked Anne-Marie and Yvonne, the combo Anke was dying for to get together. Thank you Anke and Frank for letting us work together, I loved it x

    Thank you Yvonne, Anne-Marie and Harry for it was such a lovely and beautiful wedding day! The soft summer colors of the flowers in my bouquet and on the tables were perfectly matched with our wedding clothes and the summer feeling!!! The cakes were jummieeeeee. But the most beautiful thing was to get married at the Villa Bloemenhof because Anne-Marie and Harry are dear friends of us and we love them. Big kiss Frank and Anke x

    Oooh!!! This is my dream wedding. It’s also my dream that I have friends with your impeccable taste… I love my friends but not their taste 😉

    It’s great to see you keep blogging in spite of every unsavoury moment you’ve gone through (stolen pictures, general lack of appreciation), I’ve followed you on and off since 2007 and I say, you’re the real deal! Thank you for keeping the web pretty, neat and honest 🙂 Abrazos from Uruguay!
