THE HAPPIEST DAY OF

MY LIFE

I called off my wedding and married myself.

Yesterday I asked my best friend to marry me... Eva Ostrowska said yes! at Glendalough National Park, march 29, 2016.

THE HAPPIEST DAY OF MY LIFE JULY 16TH 2016

I called off my wedding when I found out that my fiance was cheating on me.

We had planned to get married on July 16th, 2016.

 

 

 

Everything was chosen. Everything was booked and ready. 

I went through a period of depression.

And then, I decided to get married without him. 

 

 

I married myself on our original wedding date on Saturday, July 16th, 2016, at the Lourdes Sanctuary,

in front of the Virgin Mary grotto in the South of France. 

 

 

On July 15th, I didn't give any notice and took a train from Paris to Lourdes by myself.

In Lourdes I booked a single room hotel in a hotel called the Marial Hotel.

In the evening, I had a bachelorette party all by myself at my hotel room. 

I enjoyed a glass of red wine, put some music on, and...watched a Chippendale show

on Youtube on my laptop. 

On July 16, 2016, our original wedding date, I went in front of the Lourdes Grotte with a local wedding photographer I had booked the day before. (Vincent Groc.) 

and I married myself among prayers and tourists.

I threw a floral bouquet and some grains over myself as per the tradition.

I received blessings from tourists, and a nun told me that she would pray for me at church.

It was definitely the Happiest Day of my Life.
