      For months I had been looking forward to Patricia and Ruth’s wedding. Reason is, they got married in a cave! Patricia and Ruth met in Dublin in 2005. Patricia had moved to Dublin from The Netherlands and Ruth had moved to Dublin in the same year. They kept bumping into each other as they had mutual friends, until they fell head over heels in love. In 2012 while on holiday on Gran Canaria, Ruth proposed to Patricia. They looked at wedding venues in Ireland as well as in The Netherlands, and they found this amazing location in Valkenburg, close to where Patricia is from. On the Sunday some of the Irish guests started to arrive in Valkenburg. This was a great opportunity for everyone to get to know each other. On the Monday evening, dinner was organised for all the wedding guests from Ireland and The Netherlands, at Mexican restaurant El Castillo.  And on the Tuesday, the ceremony and party were held at De Feestgrot, also in Valkenburg.

      The lady finished the ceremony with a gorgeous poem in the cave, which was lit by candles. This is part of the poem:

      “To come to an end, I would like to wish you a marriage as strong as the Dutch lion, harmonious as the tone of the Irish harp, smooth as Dutch butter, warm as Irish lamb’s wool, colourful and prospering as tulips from Amsterdam, fiery as Irish whiskey, open as the Dutch polder landscapes and as spiritual as the rhymes of Limerick.”

      To come to an end, I would like to wish you a marriage as strong as the Dutch lion, harmonious as the tone of the Irish harp, smooth as Dutch butter, warm as Irish lamb’s wool, colourful and  prospering as tulips from Amsterdam, fiery as Irish whiskey, open as the Dutch polder landscapes and as spiritual as the rhymes of Limerick.

      Cupcakes were made by a cousin and there was also Limburgse vlaai (speciality pie from the area)

      A friend of the couple created a “tree” for them as an original guestbook! Guests could leave their fingerprints “hanging in the tree” and take a keychain as a wedding gift.

      We took the pictures in a forest area on top of the caves.

      They all danced the night away in the caves! What a special and wonderful venue!

      Patricia and Ruth, thank you for an amazing time in Valkenburg and spending time with you and your guests! They were fantastic days! Best wishes for the future! XOX

      Have you ever considered about adding a little bit more
      than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and
      all. However think of if you added some great
      visuals or video clips to give your posts more, “pop”!

      Your content is excellent but with pics and clips, this site
      could certainly be one of the very best in its niche.

      Very good blog!

      My developer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
      I have always disliked the idea because of the expenses.

      But he’s tryiong none the less. I’ve been using
      WordPress on several websites for about a year and am concerned about switching to another platform.
      I have heard good things about blogengine.net.
      Is there a way I can transfer all my wordpress content into it?
      Any help would be greatly appreciated!

      Excellent blog! Do you have any tips and hints for aspiring writers?

      The other day, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a 30 foot drop, just
      so she can be a youtube sensation. My apple ipad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.
      I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with
      someone!
