A wedding in the spa gardens of Bad Homburg

It's often said that there's no place like home. And as luck would have it, Bad Homburg is not only my home, but also the home of Verena and Alexander. Getting married in Bad Homburg was therefore an obvious idea for the two of them. And I had the great pleasure to be present at the wedding of the two as their wedding photographer.

Getting Ready with the Emperor

We meet for getting ready at the Steigenberger Hotel - directly at the Kurpark and only a few meters away from the later ceremony location. We have plenty of time and the two are extremely relaxed by bridal couple standards. So we have a first small portrait session in the room and in the spacious corridors of the hotel - always under the watchful eyes of the landgrave and the emperor.

The video team is already waiting

For the wedding ceremony we drive the short distance to the church in Gonzenheim, where the wedding guests are already waiting for Verena and Alex. There we also meet Katharina and Daniel Haussmann, who have promised the couple a fantastic wedding film. The Hausmanns are a great video team and are one of those rare filmmakers with whom you harmonize perfectly as a photographer. So the collaboration that day once again is really fun.

Wedding ceremony in the protestant church in Bad Homburg Gonzenheim

Verena and Alex experience a beautiful wedding ceremony with outstanding musical accompaniment. So their initial nervousness gives way very quickly to happy, smiling faces. And at their YES finally no eye remains dry.

With horse and carriage to the park

When the two leave the church, not only are the guests already waiting there, but also the horse-drawn carriage that will take Verena and Alex across Bad Homburg to the champagne reception at the Golfhaus in the Kurpark.

Wedding photos in the park

My favorite way to take wedding photos is to relax and take a little walk around the block together - and that's how I did it with Verena and Alex. The Golfhaus is located in the middle of the spa gardens of Bad Homburg - by the way, on the oldest golf course in Germany. After everyone has had a hearty toast and the guests are slowly making themselves comfortable in the sun, we take a short walk together through the historic park, which offers countless photo motifs. It doesn't always have to look like a park. Depending on the season, there are places that look like wildflower meadows or the deepest forest - all just a few steps away from the guests.

Delicious food and great party

In the evening, everyone is spoiled in the Golfhaus restaurant and is then ready for the opening of the small dance floor. This is then also eagerly used by all guests.

Camper photobooth and champagne shower

In line with the mood, the photos in the Photobooth also develop further: Hidden in an oldie camper, you feel unobserved in front of the camera, which should be good for one or the other great shot. And finally, there's a group photo for the wild ones - with a champagne shower. ;)
