Do you know that’s the best part of being a wedding photography in Rhein-Main-Region? In Frankfurt, Wiesbaden, Mainz and Darmstadt a lot of different cultural backgrounds and traditions come together. It’s a beautiful mix of the most different weddings. I love all of these unique wedding styles as a photographer and being a part of this important day. All of these weddings have one thing in common: the overwhelming love.
In the case of Cheren’s and Damiano’s wedding in Frankfurt I fell more than excited how the day would turn out. It was an incredible opportunity to a part of an Italian family wedding that also were Jehovas Witnesses. Never in my entire life I had contact with Jehovas Witnesses and that what made the whole day even more exciting as I had no clue how the day would go. Learning of new cultures, traditions, human-beings and emotions is what I love about my job at weddings and the Frankfurt “melting pot” as well as the whole Rhein-Main-Region make all of this possible in the first place. It’s a part of being a wedding photographer the I really enjoy. I’m just so curious for all kinds of people – I just don’t like intolerance!
Luckily there were no signs of that at Cheren’s and Damiano’s wedding where I was welcomed with open arms. The had a huge family and even more guests around them with a handful of Italian spirit and a ton of love which made it so easy to feel good around everyone and to take part in this amazing wedding.
During the Getting Ready bride and groom where separated in Frankfurt, but the atmosphere with all the excitement and anticipation was great in both places – I was able to start the day with so many emotional moments.
After all this, the whole day really took off – next up was the soulful and lovingly ceremony at “Königreichsaal” of Zeugen Jehovas Frankfurt that was more heartfelt that at least most of the religious weddings i look part of in my career as a wedding photographer. I guess that’s the advantage if “going to church” really does mean something to the people and they feel a sense of home at this place.
After the religious ceremony it was time for the usual champagne reception in front of the “Königreichsaal der Zeugens Jehovas” in Frankfurt. After this we had a brief portrait and family formals session at Staatspark Wilhelmsbad. Just as short as I like it. 😉
What’s next was probably one of the most amazing Wedding partys I’ve ever seen – these people exactly now how to celebrate a wedding. Basically they burned down Volkshaus Sossenheim which was a great venue for the large crowd of guests. I’m certainly sure that I will never forget this day as wedding photographer. It was just “wow”… incredible!
