The blessing is one of the most personal times of the whole wedding. Only family and closest friends are present as both sets of parents offer their blessings and best wishes to their children before the ceremony.
It’s usually a very teary affair, with one or both of the mothers crying and perhaps a guest or two joining in.
It’s at this point, I suppose, that the seriousness of what’s happening really starts to settle in.
Było bardzo uroczyście z tymi wszystkimi mowami, na szczęście obeszło sie bez zbyt głośniego szlochania.
After the blessing, it’s off to the church.
