Actually, the wedding of Anna and Peter began quite contemplatively. And in the midst of the wonderful nature around the Outdoorzentrum Lahntal in the middle of the forest, it could have been a quiet and naturally relaxed wedding, which I was allowed to document as a wedding photographer.
Or the wedding couple marries exactly just as they are and how they imagine the perfect wedding for themselves. In the case of Anna and Peter, it was a festival wedding. Including can shooting in the wedding ceremony and a crazy party until late at night!
My appeal to you as a wedding photographer: Just do exactly what you want! From the wide range of possibilities between traditions and modernity, just choose what you feel like, mix the old with ideas that you have yourself (because you like to go to concerts, like to play games or whatever) and then show your own personality with your wedding. You only get married once!
Getting Ready at “Hotel zur Krone” in Löhnberg
Anna und Peter taten genau das. So begann der Tag ganz klassisch mit drei Ladys im Salon Bodemer in Solms, ins Brautkleid wurde im Hotel zur Krone in Löhnberg, während der Bräutigam ganz beschaulich im Outdoorzentrum Lahntal das Hobbithaus bezogen hatte um sich in seinen Anzug zu werfen.
Anna and Peter did just that. So the day started quite classically with three ladies at Salon Bodemer in Solms, after the bride got into her wedding dress at “Hotel zur Krone” in Löhnberg, while the groom stayed at the hobbit house at Outdoorzentrum Lahntal to get into his suit.
Und während der Trauzeuge und der Bräutigam noch aufgeregt den letzten Schluck vor der Trauung trunken, ging die Sause beim Einzug der Braut bereits hochemotional los, denn der Brautvater sorgte selbst für die musikalische Untermalung. Schöner könnte ein Einzug zur freien Trauung kaum sein
And while the best man and the groom still excitedly drank the last sip before the wedding ceremony, the party already started highly emotionally when the bride moved in, because the bride’s father himself provided the background music. A move-in to the wedding ceremony could hardly be more beautiful.
A festival ceremony at Outdoorzentrum
The wedding ceremony itself was already in the spirit of a festival. There was a lot of alcohol on stage, cheering guests and not just a smooch to loud music.
And that’s exactly how it continued. With a lot of laughing and crying, with beer bottles knocked over and the first band, which began to heat up the wedding guests shortly after the yes-word. Adhesive tattoos, the free atmosphere of the “Outdoorzentrum Lahntal”, goats, alpacas, the one or other cold drink and lots of loud music… it all just screams festival wedding!
The party as a tiny festival near Giessen
And that was really really beautiful! Also for me as a wedding photographer in Frankfurt and the surrounding area a pure celebration. It couldn’t have been more party-heavy. And who knows me, knows: I LOVE a good wedding party! It can hardly get too heated for me.
Sommer wedding – perfect in the forest!
And when do you know from experience that the wedding party is especially good? Exactly, if you just do your thing! There is one more take away form this day:
Why don’t you go hide in the woods during a heatwave?
