Triumph over bureaucracy ...

It has taken 23 months, numerous visits to the Standesamt, more telephone calls, emails and letters than we care to remember, apostilles, certificates, certifications of authenticity and a couple of affidavits - but we've finally got permission to get married in Germany. The bureaucrats finally surrendered and stopped sending us demands for more certificates, more proofs of nationality, marriage anullment, income and residence, and have issued the necessary clearance.

Now all we have to do is set a date when those we'd like to invite are likely to be able to attend - and the necessary officials, priest and venues are available ...

It's only taken 23 months so far, what's another six or so?
