“Just get married the way it suits you!”… basically this is THE sentence that all wedding service providers whether wedding photographer or wedding speaker whether big city like Hamburg or suburb like Bergedorf tell you again and again. Marry simply in such a way that fits you!
And that’s exactly what we mean!
Marrying – but very different on the Dove Elbe
And we are happy when you then pull through what you enjoy the most, like the most and suits you best. Like Simone and Ralf, who celebrated their small wedding in Bergedorf just really the way it suits them. A small intimate wedding that I was allowed to document as a wedding photographer in Bergedorf and to experience a great day with them.
Wedding in small group with a wedding photographer in Bergedorf
The whole thing started in the afternoon on the Dove Elbe near Bergedorf on a boat. We sailed comfortably through the Hamburg countryside between Hamburg, Bergedorf and Reinbek and enjoyed the insanely good weather. There is hardly anything cooler for me as a wedding photographer. I have to admit that.
Emotional ceremony on the Elbe River
The parents of the bride, the son of the family and the bride and groom a trip with Friederike – “Trautante”, as a wedding celebrant through the beautiful surroundings of Bergedorf and I as a wedding photographer was where I like it best: In the middle instead of just there.
Free wedding ceremony with “Trautante” in Hamburg
You know, I think it’s especially important to just disappear with the wedding party this size and thus be able to capture the best emotions. This is of course difficult with a SO small number of guests, but then also just particularly easy when a wedding is so relaxed and familiar as here in Bergedorf on the Dove Elbe.

It was hot, it was beautiful and emotional AF. Friederike had divided the wedding ceremony into two parts. A “family” and a “friendly” part. There are, after all, perhaps things that the parents and the son do not need to know 😉
Wedding as a garden party in Reinbek
And so in the afternoon on the boat there were already the first tears, the first champagne and the first kiss and after a cool down in the garden (yes, okay, you could also call it a water fight :D), it went on with the second part of the free wedding ceremony.
Wedding with tattoo by the celebrant in Reinbek
Again with tears, champagne and a first kiss. And a tattoo that Friederike, as the wedding officiant, has engraved the couple. Crazy that she sits down in a garden in Bergedorf and tattoos a wedding couple under all sorts of hygiene stuff. I would not have thought that I would experience that.
Individual wedding photos with pole dance interlude
But if you celebrate a relaxed boat garden wedding with the Trautante in Bergedorf, then you can experience something special. So tattoo, pole dance and cozy campfire sitting until late at night for example.
Special reportage from wedding photographer in Bergedorf
I am thrilled to this day. Because one thing is very clear at this wedding near Bergedorf, which I was allowed to document as a wedding photographer: Simone and Ralf have simply married the way it suits them!
