On this day 3 years ago we were Just Maried.
20 minutes before the official procedure I was still making my bridal sandals of silk cord and leather, then we rush to the institution. It was a burning Budapest summer day.
Our friend Mihaly asked if we had any rings – we negativelly shook heads and he reached into his pockets to see if he has anything to save the situation.. I need to add that Mihaly is genious mechanician mind that can build perfectly a bycicle, private airplane and anything in between including large laser machines, of cause he had to have two iron devices looped into rings that supposedly used for fixing water pipes or so. The rings were also adjustable in diametr with the screw and we were fixing the sizes fitting it on our fingers after we signed into some official book. The speaker woman who’ve did tonns of wedding ceremonies on conveyor expressed quite a puzzlement face when we loaded out on official silver plate our symbols of promice – random metal part that used for ring’ screwdriver accidentally and significantly stated in Hungarian – “a Cage”. We both burst in laugth when we realised that fact.
You know, in Budapest you say Igen when you’ve asked if you are certain about something that I didn’t understood what is that, and then its just like everywhere else: first you sign in the book then you kiss, or the other way around – I dont remember now. But it doesnt hurt neither way. It just feels a bit akward.
But civil ceremony was over soon however. Just married us and our dear witnesses went to a front square (Blaha Luiza) where few more friends was already waiting with champagne. Its was documented on film by Balazs Toth.
