Two beautiful days in fall and the glorious located venue Schloss Münchhausen caused the right basics for this awesome wedding. Melanie Schmitz and her team of marry me had been responsible for an smoothy organization. Make up and Hair were done by Ina Mühlhaus, whereas flowers were arranged by Michael Graaf. And the right music for a cozy atmosphere was played by Max & Friends. In addition to that I had photographical support by Carsten Schäfer who was responsible for the Polaroid attraction for the guest book and taking some additional shots for the wedding video. Two memorable days with a great wedding party that I will not forget soon.
Natalia Cury and me accompanied a beautiful wedding in the Elblounge in Hamburg. This time, Natalie assisted as a second shooter and lots of these photos were taken by her. It really was a like a small meeting between all the wedding obsessed people who I admire. Probably that is the reason why the wedding was so special to me. The wedding plan came from the talented wedding planer Anna Brinkmann, the make up was created by Katharina Jasinski and the beautiful wedding gown was found at Elbbraut. Coinna Lovens from Wertvolle Worte guided the guest with lots of emotions through the lovely ceremony. And the flowers, a ocean of peonies were arranged by Blumen Graaf. In the afternoon DJ Alexander Kruck was in charge of getting the crowd into the right dancing mood.
But enough words, here you can see the pictures!
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.
