Intimate Wedding Inspiration in Germany at Schloss Auel

This stunning dose of inspiration captured beautifully by Kibogo Photography reads like a list of all of my favorite things. Stunning florals and design from Gutjahr Dekoration, a Jenny Packham wedding gown (enough said), and lovely signage from Laura Hooper Calligraphy – it’s honestly image after image of the best kind of pretty, and you can head to the VAULT for even more.

From Kibogo PhotographyThis was the editorial shoot at my wedding photography related workshop. We were a small group, which I wanted so I was able to give each attendee enough attention they needed. The idea behind the styled shoot design was, since it’s late autumn and winter is right in front of us, escaping winter by just sailing away far away where the sun is ;) Yes, I know we were not at the beach but thats the point. The venue Schloss Auel, where we were is a perfect location for small intimate weddings where you can have the ceremony just right under the tree in front of a small pond. The reception can be held either indoors or when the weather is right outdoors as well. For more ideas about how to celebrate your wedding there visit their website;)

And my very dear Friend Helene Gutjahr was the genius who put the whole design into reality with the florals and Sonja with the stationery!!

Elegant Midcentury-Inspired Beach Elopement

Taking a cue from the iconic style of the 1960s, this German couple said “I Do” in a chic midcentury mod-inspired beach elopement. With the famous Hotel Neptun hosting the reception, the Bride’s YSL little white dress, a beautiful cake from Dilekerei and flowers in Pantone’s 2016 colors of the year, everything about this day is gorgeous. See it all from Katja Scherle Festtagsfotografien in THE VAULT!

From Katja Scherle Festtagsfotografien….Dear SMPers, I know you’re always looking for something different and I think this may be one of those weddings. This big city couple wanted to elope and get married at the Baltic Sea where they met and fell in love during law school. But they didn’t want the typical beach wedding, they were looking for something modern, fun, yet elegant. As a venue they chose the famous Hotel Neptun, a 1960s midcentury building that has beautiful architectural features – like the appearance of a sail boat when you look at it from a certain angle. And from that modern midcentury vibe their whole wedding style developed: they opted for modern geometric stationery, designed by Jungrad Design. The bride chose an elegant and fun YSL 1960s style wedding dress and went for a more dramatic 1960s style make up done by Lena Schleweis. When they exited the local city hall they were even greeted with geometric hexagon shaped golden confetti!

Those confetti also found their way onto their beautifully styled tables in a Hotel Neptun private room – where they enjoyed a delicious five course lunch with twelve of their closest family members and friends. Up on the 12th floor with a beautiful view – of course the bride thought of cute little telescopes for their guests.

Regarding their wedding colors they were ahead of time: In tune with Pantone’s new colors for 2016 their beautiful lush florals (by Botanic Art) were designed in soft pink and blue hues – just as their wedding cake: Its stunning lace pattern was hand painted by cake designer Dilekerei, matching the lace pattern on the bride’s dress and the flowers in her bouquet.

In the end all the colors perfectly matched the colours of the ocean on that sunny day. The sea and the beach played a big role on their day – in a maritime elopement done in a whole new way.

From Kibogo PhotographyI met this couple 2 years ago at the wedding of their cousin, not knowing they were planing to get engaged and married soon ;) So when I got an email that they got engaged and wanted to book me for their wedding I was more than happy to be part of their journey and big day.

From The Bride…We actually went to the same school. I finally got his number from his cousin, this was after many other failed trials, and finally I wrote to him. After a few SMS texts we met and had some ice cream sometime in the middle of 2003. At that time Arthur was no longer in school, but he was preparing for his undergraduate studies. We really enjoyed that day but a few days later he just suddenly backed off and for about one year he never kept in touch.

In 2004 as my girlfriends and I, just before attending a Prom, decided to go and watch a local football match, where the boyfriend of one of my girlfriends was playing. Coincidentally Arthur was also playing in that match and, he looked my way, saw me and unluckily he scored goal, still he didn’t make any effort to contact me.

The girlfriend of Arthurs brother spoke to me in school and asked me why we stopped contacting each other and this got on my nerves since I myself did not know the reason why. I gave her my number and funny enough sooner than I had thought Arthur contacted me.

We met a few times, went skating, went to the movies, watched DVDs together etc. on the 24th of July in 2004 we had our first kiss and the beginning of our relationship.

They both love old barns and dream of having their own one day. Thats why they choose this location. Most of the small wooden and painted details you see in this wedding are handmade by the groom’s mom. She is an artist and hand painted all the Matroschkas you see on the table. Matroschkas are russian wooden dolls:)
