Weekend in Utrecht

Sorry for the blog-silence! We went to Utrecht in the Netherlands this weekend for a wedding, so I wasn't able to update... I forgot to pack my camera (rookie mistake) so A's camera-phone had to do.

I hadn't been to Utrecht before but I absolutely loved it! Every time I visit the Netherlands I think that it would be nice to move here some day...

We splurged on a really nice hotel this time (Karel V), and wasn't disappointed! I mean - there was a canopy over the bed and the breakfast included champagne, fresh strawberries and a chocolate fountain. 

We didn't have time for a lot of sightseeing, but we took a long walk to have a look at one of my favourites from architectural history - the Rietveld Schröder House by Gerrit Rietveld from 1929. It's a beauty. 

The whole Saturday was occupied by the wedding at an estate in Amerongen. I was dressed in this red/pink assemble, and felt smart for bringing an extra pair of shoes - flats suitable for the garden games.

Live painting of the party. Fun and fancy!

A was wearing his Batman cuffs. My kind of guy.

Spectacular ending of the night!
