Laure and Dave got married in Luxembourg at the beginning of May 2020, just after the end of the strict lockdown in the country. Attendants for the civil wedding were limited to 12, so only their two children and close family accompanied the couple to the beautiful and ornate Dudelange City Hall where they were married.

After the ceremony, the bride and groom went for a walk in the forest and celebrated with glasses of champagne.
