Church Wedding

Bavaria is heavily Catholic, however the trend seems to be living with a partner for years before getting married. Every wedding I've attended in Bavaria the bride and groom have been married civilly for about 6 months before having a church wedding, although some forgo that all together.

The consensus also seems to be out on whether people are permitted to kiss in the Bavarian Catholic church. When in doubt or when things seem 'modern' (such as having a restroom at the church) I'm often told that's something the Evangelicals (Protestants) do.

A heavenly photo of a beautiful church! I'm glad to be Lutheran - then maybe I'll have better bathroom and kissing privileges!
