Weddings on Sundays

Having your wedding ceremony on a Sunday has many advantages.

It is much easier to get your desired date and there is no need to reserve the date over a year prior to the wedding. Even better most likely your favored florist or confectioner is still free for booking.

The Sunday is easier on families on the kids as much as the grandparents. Instead of partying all night long, the festivities start earlier.

Your personal and individual wedding ceremony gives a festive beginning. The theologian Jochen Jülicher and his team know perfectly how to realize that.
