Blog > A Postcrossing wedding

First of all, happy New Year! We hope 2012 brings lots of smiles to your mailbox! We start the year with lovely news: a Postcrossing wedding!

Ivan, the groom, writes on his blog that he met Natalia in a Postcrossing meeting in Ukraine, over a year ago. Since then they’ve done a lot of things together, like a photography course, kayaking, and of course, attending more Postcrossing meetups (like this one in Balaklava).

Last fall, they decided to get married on the 26th of November, and send a lot of cards to their friends. Here are a few photos from that special day:

Don’t they look lovely? Congratulations Ivan and Natalia, and thank you for sharing your story with us!

MrsTaavi, Germany
Congratulations to your wedding, Ivan and Natalia! May you have a long and happy life together! :)


I was getting married at the end of last May. My husband (MrTaavi), who is also a postcrosser, had the brilliant idea to have a little postcrossing meeting at our wedding, as that day there were 5 postcrossers at the wedding. So we wrote a couple of cards to some friends. It was fun and made the day even more unique ;)

Here you can see some pictures:
