Romantic Vintage-Bastel-Barn Wedding

Now it is getting beautiful. I know that Anna, the bride, put so so much effort into her wedding preparation. Most of the arrangements were handcrafted and the venue was not a usual one. The venue was an old manor in the middle of nowhere, somewhere close to Krummendeich. Streets were small and by approaching the venue houses were disappearing by the time – the best conditions for a beautiful vintage wedding. So I am including some shots of the decoration for you:

The informal wedding has been conducted by the lovely Anja Kellersmann of Glücksagenten. Some rain drops passed by but luckily they have been replaced by the sun very fast. In the evening the wedding party was celebrating in the big rustic barn including a beer wagon. The civil wedding was at the lakeside Bremervörde Backhaus. For me personally a great party ?

A Wedding at the castle Tremsbüttel

 

Castel Tremsbüttel – The Beatles were accommodated there in 1966 and fans spent the whole night in front of the castle to catch a glimpse of their idols. The next day they actually had showed up on the balcony of the castle. When shooting the bridal moments of getting ready in the huge suite, 50 years later, I caught myself thinking of them and having questions in my mind like: Did John Lennon sleep in this bed?…. Did George Harrison play his guitar on that couch? Pretty spooky..

But let us not get distracted by the Beatles and get back to the gorgeous wedding.

The ceremony was outside under trees and the bride played and sang a song. So romantic! The vibe on that day was cheerful throughout the whole day, a really great celebration. If this was influenced by John, Paul, George and Ringo? In my opinion, especially in 1966 they released the best album “Revolver”.  So who knows?!

Supported was the wedding also by the team of Agentur Traumhochzeit with great engagement. The great hair and make up was done by Isabella von Rothkirch and Debby Smith made the background music sound very special during ceremony and cocktail hour.

Wedding at the Heinepark Residence

The wedding kind of started very strangely as I was told by the groom two hours before the ceremony was supposed to start that the mother of the make up artist called saying she was sick. Being skipped out I had no other choice as researching for an alternative in my well working vendor network as quick as possible because I am only able to do make ups for carnival occasions -that’s it. But on a Saturday morning in summer it is almost impossible to find a good one as they are either booked or pregnant. Fortunately my lovely colleague Anna Brinkmann being in the industry and doing nothing else than realizing unique weddings, could help me out. After a few phone calls she had a solution and I was able to calm down the bride finally. With a perfect Make Up finish the wedding could start and the day ended up beautiful and smoothly without any unforeseen surprises.

As Wedding Photographer at Gut Bliestorf

Herrenhaus Gut Bliestorf next to Lübeck in Schleswig-Holstein is a real masterpiece. Located calmly in the verdancy and having a very engaged host. The fact that you book beautiful rooms was the perfect condition for the wedding couple to start their day relaxed. I was really looking forward to a vibrant wedding party with a lot of children and good vibes.

The wedding was organized by Anna Brinkmann sitting in the same office as I do.

When it comes to Anna’s work you can tell that the wedding will have a beautiful and perfectly fitting decoration with lovely details and a smoothly schedule.

So just to let you know in case you are about to get married and about to start the planning process go ahead and ask Anna so that you do not have to worry about anything and enjoy your special day.

The sweet component of the wedding was a vegan and very tasty wedding cake by Angelique (Tortenschön) creating another highlight of the wedding. But please let me also make notice of the other well cooperating vendors doing a great job an making the day as special as possible.

This and that….

Caused by increasing requests I was not able to upload posts to this blog frequently in the last couple months. Better said: I was busy and I did not have time to keep you posted. Nevertheless I will show you beautiful weddings, that I could collected on my hard disk in the last couple months, soon. In the meantime I would like to make you aware of two interviews that will make you know me and my work better. You gotta check this out.

On the one hand you will see a detailed interview of WhiteWall, that I can recommend anyways. I really love ordering stuff from them like large Pictures and canvas.

On the other hand you will see an interview divided into four parts with my highly appreciated colleague Patrick Rudolph (neun-zehn72.de). Patrick is a Photoblogger publishing lots of data and ideas regarding photography. His videos I have linked directly through his YouTube channel.

As Wedding Photographer at Gastwerk

Last fall I had the pleasure to be a part of a very beautiful wedding. The wedding couple got married at Süllberg and ended up for their reception at Gastwerk. A recent discovered patio in St. Pauli was the perfect location for taking their portraits. But we did not meet the patio’s owner. Well just get your own opinion on that :-)
