The morning of the 25th year

Silver Wedding

Tuesday the 14/6 was the 25th year of my parents wedding.

In Denmark we celebrate it by, coming for morning tea at the bride and grooms house.
People arrive about 7 and gather in front of the house where they start the day by singing some songs "to wake up the couple"
Then the couple greets the guest in their morning clothes and thanks for the songs, and invite people inside for the already prepared tables

..Neighbors and perhaps family stands for something else..
Which is what the following pictures will take you trough.

The making of the shield

This was what my brother and I stood for.
My brother handled the woodthing, and I handled the painting of it.
The colours are not quite right in this picture, but you get the point

The day before the actual day, my brother and I, my uncle and aunt and several from the village gathered to make the gates.

Wooded boards covered with fir and tons of flowers!
And then some flags.

This it the gate at the main door + the shield me and my brother made
My parents!
