It's her first time
« on: April 01, 2019, 09:36:57 AM »

SC came back from Thailand when I told her I was finally divorced and we could make a plan - at last..

I NEVER expected to have to wait over five years and SC had 'acquaintances' who suggested I might just be stringing her along ..(I guess they met one of our married members who can't keep away from dating sites to help newbies ? )


SC has never been married and does not want to be married in Russia !


So, where to tie the knot and what is required in 2019?

Cyprus - it is an EU nation and the marriage docs are in ENGLISH (and Greek)

1/ Visit ZAKS and get a 'no impediment to be married doc'   - *I* thought that would take days - but it was 800 Roubles and a 2 hour wait



2/ I need to get such a doc if I marry as an Irishman or Swear an Affidavit in a Cyprus Court if a Brit


3/ SC's no impediment' docs MUST be translated by the Cypriot govt translator

4/ Pay 130 Euros for a licence and present Passports and Birth Certs



For SC finding a dress  is the priority

(Moby Congratulations  :thumbsup:

Perhaps DogSoldier can be your best man?

Rosco can serve the haggis!

Manny I am confident can provide a swift kick to your posterior to move you to the altar.

Wiz will share his profound knowledge of Greek love making.

In any event make sure which ever dress SC selects that it is easy to remove.

May all your future ups and downs take place horizontally!

Thank you, AvHdB



Manny or Andrewfi could be my best man - as they know so much about my life

Markje can be the chauffeur - as long as it is a fast BMW

Steveboy will bring a selection of Bridesmaids

BB will bring a harem - taking "plus 1" to a new level

BillyB will do an impression of eating his own hat

Rosco will be THAT guest that keeps dropping in one liners that has folks rolling their eyes

I was thinking Wiz as photographer - as he will filch any photos, anyway

Sting123 / Guile will ask if he can bring a VK fwend and fail to turn up - as usual - when he has promised

DS, will get stopped at passport control and miss the wedding while being interviewed - but arrive drunk for the reception

Chris will be the Maitre'D

Sparky114 will make a guest appearance as long as it is all inclusive ..

AvHdB ?:  He will interview guests to ask if it is true that I have met and rescued Jeremy Clarkson and report on festivities

Brass will gate crash and ask to see my Blue Beret

TonTon will do the bar

Donhollio will check any fish were caught on a line ;)

Herrie will handle the organisation behind the scenes

Shakey will be taking bets on how many weeks we'll last

TomT will ask the bride for the first dance

I was thinking Wiz as photographer - as he will filch any photos, anyway


Don't worry if you can't come ...we'll host a reception in 'Manny's village' in the UK

So you’re finally divorced?

Indeed, finally... 


Why doesn’t she want to get married in Russia?

''Anywhere but Russia'.. not romantic'' ..plus the Church were not keen to marry a divorcee and she did not want to marty in a small Church in the Mountains, which was siggested by Father Sergey who was prepared to 'take on ' the establishment...

You did not marry Olga in Russia, as I recall.

This is her first time and she wants sun, sea and white rocks at sunset....))

Her choice..

But,  'well spotted'..there is a good chance most folks will give her a pass on the traditional assocation with virginity..as they might with most brides ?
