Another vintage wedding story
⋈ Back in August 2016 I photographed the intimate and relaxed vintage wedding of Anne and Markus. It was held in the countryside on the old farm Kulturgut Wrechen. As a wedding photographer it comes with the job to be part of many beautiful celebrations and this one, as you’ll see was also very special.
The day started with a very relaxed getting ready shooting. The bride and groom were getting ready separately, so first I photographed Anne in her beautiful boho dress. Then a little later, I captured Markus in his suit, which was inspired by British fashion. After flower crowns had been secured in place and bow tie and flat cap had been adjusted, our next destination would be the forest. Or to be more precise, the destination in the middle of the forest, was the enchanting little chapel of Mellenau which still is a true insider tip. In this magical place, surrounded by friends and family the two exchanged their vows.
After the ceremony came the second part of the day, the reception at Kulturgut Wrechen. This little oasis in the middle of Mecklenburg-Western Pomerania is located directly at an idyllic lake and is a very suitable place for intimate weddings with a little extra countryside flair. The newlyweds arrived at the Kulturgut Wrechen in a Russian old-timer, which was decorated with buntings and little toys. Once they arrived they were welcomed by friends and family and then of course duly celebrated.
What followed next was an extremely relaxed couples photo shoot. Since there were no set plans we were able to let ourselves be inspired by the surroundings and create beautiful memories for the both of them. We took advantage of the very lush country side location during this shoot. We captured portraits of the two newlyweds with chickens, were moved by the magical lake setting during the family portraits session and finally ended the shoot in the adjoining nature.
Part of what made this wedding so very special to me was that all the details just fitted so wonderfully together. The dress of the bride, the flower crown (which was also worn by their daughter) combined with the country house flair, the naked cake and the home-grown food – it all just worked well together. Everything was done with such a loving attention to detail.
We really got carried away by the cosy yet festive atmosphere which seemed so far removed from our daily urban lives. The wonderful day ended with a small party. The couple cut the cake, illuminated only by the light of sparklers. What followed next was a wonderful celebration of the love of Anne and Markus, lots of music, even more laughter and love everywhere.
