Recently I was happy enough to shoot another wedding on the lovely island Sylt. The ceremony took place in Morsum and the after party was in Budersand. I guess the pictures are talking for themselves. Have fun!
Before start presenting the first weddings of 2014, we want to show you a small retrospect of 2013. Last year we had been at many great places, had come to know wonderful people and were allowed to witness their tears, laughter, joy and expectations. We experienced very private moments that were more important than just a photo, good food, music and dance. We saw in you what is really essential in life, which made our days more special. For that we would like to say thank you!
I am always very excited when there is something special to shoot. I already shooted the civil wedding for Tanja and Oliver on Sylt and in the summer time I was able to shoot their great garden wedding as well. As Tanjas parents have a huge garden it was obvious to put a tent in there and celebrate the big day in this location. Friends came with a trailer that Oliver used to get ready for the ceremony. The party after the ceremony was in the garden. Again, I attended this wedding with my talented assistant Natalie, which is why a few of these photos are taken by her (for example the decoration).
The trend to wear colourful socks to an elegant smoking – you can see it everywhere. Originally this trend came from England (like lots of design trends in the male fashion industry). English men wear colored socks to smokings since the twenties. Regarding today’s wedding, the men wore magenta socks to a Brioni Smoking, matching reverse jewelry and weddingbouqets. In the beginning there were a few rain drops, but later it lightened up and we had the best weather for the shooting. We decided for a shooting in the Schanze („Schanzenviertel“). As a wedding photographer you already know all the parks and spots in Hamburg and they are beautiful, but it is always nice to try something different. The fireworks in the evening was the perfect finish for this wedding. I would like to mention that my assistant took some of the photos (church from above, wedding couple in the car, decoration). I also recommend her as a wedding photographer from 2014 on.
Wedding gown: Pronovias
Make-up/Hair: Jan-Mark Heuer
Gut Thansen is located just outside Hamburg and offers the opportunity to marry in a beautiful bucolic location. I had the pleasure to accompany Beatrice and Philipp on their most special day which they really enjoyed from beginning until the end. Beatrice make-up was made by Jenny and the matching dress was found at Elbbraut. The ceremony in the church was thrilling thanks to Abla Aloui with a indescribable beautiful voice and Benjamin Fenker. Of course there were a few tears. A big surprise was the unique wedding car waiting in front of the church. Lots of these great pictures were taken by my assistant Natalie Cury, which I really admire.
Today I will not write about the wedding – but the wedding couple will. My intern Natalie Cury helped me and contributed some nice pictures to this blogpost.
