You know what’s refreshing? This wedding day recap from the world’s sweetest groom. Written in his very own words, he spells out the story behind this whimsical Austrian lovefest almost as beautifully as Iconoclash Photography captured. Dive head first into the gallery of pretty right over here.

From the Groom… After having been together for quite some time, I proposed to Cordula during a holiday at the Corcovado in Rio de Janeiro. Grooms, if youre looking for a nice spot to pop the question I can really recommend this place, it was fantastic! We both knew we didn’t want to have a religious ceremony, but we still wanted to have a solemn and festive ceremony with all our friends and family, so we opted for a civil marriage outdoors on the grounds of our location, Palais Laudon. Both during the planning and on the day we were really happy to have the support of our wedding planner Maryam from yam yam Event Productions. She helped us right from the beginning, from the location search to the programme design, and we developed an overall theme and colour scheme together, loosely based on a tropical theme, as we both love to travel and I had proposed in Brazil.

While Maryam took care of all the details we concentrated on the things we enjoyed most, like trying different cakes, picking our clothes, etc. I think this helped us a lot in being relaxed and at ease during the actual wedding day.

Apart from the actual ceremony and exchange of the rings, which was of course a very special moment, one of Cordulas fondest memories was getting ready in the Hotel with her girls. They put on some favourite music and really had fun prettying up, getting professional make-up and hair, and posing for photos.

Another favourite moment was the couple shoot we did with our photographers Teresa and Daniel. Even though they were there photographing us, they managed somehow to make us really feel at ease… We ended up feeling like there was just us, and we got to really enjoy these moments together.

For us, our wedding day was truly a perfect day. It was amazing to feel that everything was just falling into place, and we really got to enjoy and fully live every moment of the day. I wish every couple that they can do just that – live each moment of the day fully and enjoy it!
