Getting Ready at Home
If you live just a few minutes' walk from the registry office, you can also relax and prepare for your wedding at home - just like Arica and Bene. So we meet for their getting ready at their home - a cozy old apartment in Bad Nauheim's city centre. Mothers and groomsmen are already there and the mood - despite a certain nervousness - is great. When the two meet in the hallway for the first time, it's also time for the first tears.
Together we head for the nearby registry office in the drinking spa facility, where the first guests are already waiting for the couple. Fortunately, the wedding hall there offers more space than many others. So it can accomodate all guests and give them the chance to witness Arica and Bene saying "yes" to each other. Afterwards there will be a toast together - a cozy reception in the inner courtyard, right next to the historic concert stage.
While we are on the way to take photos, the guests have some free time to enjoy themselves and go for a stroll in Bad Nauheim or Frankfurt - for a coffee or some window shopping in the city - before we meet again in the evening at the Dicke Butz in Frankfurt's eastend.
Before the last guests arrive at the wedding venue, we still have some minutes left. We wisely use them for a few more wedding photos in the streets behind the location. Wedding photos in Frankfurt offer a nice contrast to the photos we took in the park in Bad Nauheim - industrial look and urban flair offer a perfect setting.
I've had weddings in the drinking spa quite often by now. Splitting the whole thing in two and adding a wedding in Frankfurt is rather rare though. Many couples seek to avoid longer transfers between locations as this may complicate things and mess up the schedule. But sometimes this has more advantages than disadvantages. It eases the day and guests can still relax for a coffee in the spa town, take a stroll in Frankfurt or take a dip in the hotel to freshen up for the wedding party.
