As a Wedding Photographer in Uelzen

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.

Today Only One Photo

At the moment it is peak season for us wedding photographers, which is why it is hard for me to show you whole weddings on my blog. To shorten the waiting time, I will post some highlights from time to time. I start with a portraits that I shot last week on a wedding in Uelzen.

A Gown to Kneel Down

Not only the dress, Sabrina has put a lot of thought into it to make the wedding an unforgettable event. The result is awesome and makes me as a wedding photographer very happy: lots of great details and a wonderful atmosphere. You could feel the emotions as well, with very insightful moments in the church and with lots of fun in the evening the time went by extremely fast. The gown of the bride will be familiar to most of you, it is from top-designer Vera Wang from New York and it was worn of one of the actresses in the movie Bridewars. The blue suede shoes von NAVYBOOT were the perfect match for this dress. If you visit my blog more often, you will recognize Michael Graaf’s unique flower arrangements. Good work as well from Katharina Jasinski who did the make-up for this wedding. The cut and the smoking of the groom came from Dolzer.

The celebration took place at the Suellberg Hotel, where Michelin Star Chef Karlheinz Hauser prepared an unbelievable delicious dinner. During the lunch break there was a nice reception with harbour view at the Le Carnat Nouveau, the restaurant of Ali Güngörmus, the first turkish chef who got a Michelin star. Accordingly amazing was the cake and muffin buffet (frau larsson, Julies Cake, the knot, die Schoenhaberei, Casa di Falcone) In the evening the King Kamehameha Club Band from the King Ka in Frankfurt and DJ Dedl entertained the crowd with a great music mix. I don’t want to forget something that could be important to one of you. The carpet in the church was from Princessday, Pompons and Lampions are from Miss Étoile und Pom Pom Factory. The menu cards and church brochures were printed with the „Letterpressverfahren“ from Impressiona. The table and seat notes came from Gmund-Papier. I want to mention a special thanks to my intern Natalia Cury which contributed a few very nice pictures to this post. Enjoy!

Dream Wedding in December

This time I would like to show you a few more pictures of this beautiful wedding celebrated over two days in december. Winter weddings normally fit more to a alpine landscape, but apparantly Hamburg is also a nice location. The Maison Mariée organized and planned this wonderful wedding and I am happy that I could shoot this event. For me this was a great experience, a lovely couple, happy guests and a perfectly planned program in a great location. I am happy to share a few more details about this wedding. The first day was the civil ceremony, which was in the Hamburg Planetarium. A wedding in the Planetarium is truly different, a special show which happens after the civil ceremony underlines the importance of the civil ceremony. Following this, the guest were transferred with a tourist roundtrip bus to the St. Michaelis Church in Hamburg. With and escalator we got to the top floor of the church where mulled wine was offered for the guests. Karlheinz Hauser from the Süllberg Hotel served Tapas and other.
