Back in Germany this summer I was invited to our friends wedding: Ines and Manu. Not was I asked to join only as a guest but also had the honour to act as their wedding photographer. Since living in Shanghai my last wedding goes back some time. So I was really excited. I love photographing weddings. They are days filled with surprises and an eldorado for emotions.
This event was not going to be an exception. If you happen to know the bride and groom than you know also they are both real fun people. And this is what their wedding day was all about.
They were ever so relaxed in the morning of their big day, despite the fact that a thunderstorm had just the night before ruined their lovley outdoor decorations. But with the help of friends and family in the early mornings they still managed to finish decorating just in time to squeeze in a fun photoshoot before it was time to walk down the isle.
Starring this day were not only Manu and Ines but also their lovley daughter Anna who made a clear point during the ceremony that she much prefered listening to the music than to the registrar. Naturally she became part of the whole event.
There is a little background story to this picture. It was also a very special moment for me: Seeing little Anna sealing her parents promise I could not help but starting to think about my own life and before I knew it my pregancy hormones kicked in. When the singer started I found myself taken over by emotions, shedding big happy tears. Much to the amusement of everyone else I was facing...truely emberassing... so I ended up hiding under the table for a few minutes thankfully accepting tissues from Ines and trying to concentrate on my camera.. :-)!!
After the ceremony it was time to celebrate the newly wed Mrs. and Mrs. Weigand day at the hunters cottage in "Laudenbach" - and we didn´t stop until the early hours the next morning.
What else shall I say..it was an anwesome day, but let pictures speak!

Some say love, it is a river
It's the heart afraid of breaking
When the night has been too lonely
