They wanted a fairy tale wedding. And that's what they got. 'Nuff said. There's a lot of fairy tale in those pictures of Nora's and Marc's wedding. Starting with Nora's princess-worthy dress there are fairy-tale elements everywhere - a wedding with loads to discover.
Okay, to be honest, no boots there. But they had a tomcat strolling around the wedding dress. He seemed to approve it. Good for the nervous bride, as she then could go on and get married.
So we headed over to the protestant church in Wiesbaden-Kloppenheim, for a wedding ceremony as gorgeous as a wedding ceremony can be. Big moments and big feelings carried the two from beginning to the end. Afterwards we all met up at the Hofgut, located between the woods of the Taunus, close to a place with the magic name of Strinz-Magarethä. How appropriate!
The weather was on our side and offered a nice variety throughout the day between a friendly "Little Red Riding Hood" kind of weather with bright sunshine and a "Wolf" with storm and rain. Perfect conditions for the wedding portraits: Such diversity I usually have only at my Irish weddings with the continuously changing Irish weather. And those to really took a decent amount of time for it. Often couples are concerned that they'll have to little time with their guests because of the photos. But that's not necessary. If possible, I always split the portraits in halves or (like here) even better in thirds. That way the portraits are better distributed over the day, never take to long, nobody gets bored and it simply creates more versatile photos. That day, the most beautiful moment was during the photos at dusk - the lanterns around the Hofgut were already switched on and from the forest the evening mist was slowly closing in - almost magical.
That's how a fairytale weddingday slowly drew to a close...
