The Dutch model Sylvie Meis, now mainly known as a presenter in Germany, is getting married this week with her boyfriend Nicolas Castello. The wedding is celebrated for four days in as many dresses, but without the blonde’s parents. That writes the Dutch entertainment site Shownieuws.
Sylvie Meis (42) and Niclas Castello (42) give their yes to the law on Thursday, after which the first party starts. A real ceremony, which will take place in a boutique hotel in Firenze, Italy, will wait until Saturday. Meis will wear a different dress every day of her four-day wedding party, one of which is a princess-inspired creation by Galia Lahav. This was delivered just in time from Tel Aviv and cost 28,000 euros. Normally, the two would have been equally husband and wife, but the original wedding was postponed due to the corona crisis.
Despite all the revelry, there is also less news for Meis: her parents will not be sitting at the festive table. They were invited, because in Italy 70 people are currently allowed to come to a wedding, but her father Ron’s kidney disease makes the trip from Antwerp to Florence – especially in these times – very risky. According to an informed source, her mom, Rita, wants to stay with her husband and avoid the risk of a corona infection.
The parents have agreed with their daughter that they will stay at home and Damián, the 14-year-old son from Sylvie’s marriage to Dutch football player Rafael van der Vaart, will accompany her to the altar. Ron and Rita will be able to follow the ceremony via livestream. Afterwards they can also enjoy the photos, which according to sources should only be taken by professional photographers. Invitees must leave cell phones in the hotel so that they can focus on the party itself.
Sylvie and Niclas met at a wedding of a good friend in June last year. The blonde was previously engaged to businessman Charbel Aouad – she showed off his expensive engagement ring on Instagram – but that relationship broke off before the wedding. From 2005 to 2013 she was married to Rafael van der Vaart.
