Kiss and Love 550x366 Red and White Hamburg Germany Wedding

Andreas and Silvia

Andreas and I met in June 2011 on a company summer party. I was the event organizer and unfortunately had a serious accident at the end of the party. I had to go to hospital after a drunken colleague smashed my head forward on the dancefloor. My husband-to-be saw me, brought some ice for my face and found a nurse who sent me to hospital. He asked for my cell phone number so he could check up on me and I gave it.

A couple of weeks later when I came back to work, everything started… we met accidently in the canteen and decided to meet for lunch. From that moment on, we talked and talked and chatted and chatted. It was a barrier for me because I have a responsible position at work and did not want to start something with a colleague. Anyhow, it was too late , we were lost! icon biggrin Red and White Hamburg Germany Wedding After three weeks he proposed to me and I said “Yes, yes, yes, yes” and on November 4, 2011 we married in the Museum of Ethnology in Hamburg.

As I am quite familiar with organizing events, I took the challenge and organized my own wedding in less than three months.

Like every bride I put many efforts into the details and our clothing. I chose a stunning designer, Mr. Georg Rosenbaum, who already designed for Liz Taylor, Ivana Trump and Barbara Bush. I wanted to marry in red and I came to him with my thoughts and wishes. He also designed the accessories for the groom which were a surprise for him. I thought a tie would be too conservative for him and so the designer made a white silk scarf and a cream-red dotted silk pochette and another silk red pochette for the evening suit. Thanks to my wonderful “bride whisperer”!

I also put much thought into the locations for the wedding photos and our photographer Nils Nilsson was very cool and was open to our fun ideas and had a lot of them himself.

After our first look shoot at the theatre, we took a cab to the Museum of Ethnology where already a lot of people were waiting for us. At the ceremony we had a very touching speech by the registar. She had asked Andreas and I to send her one page of “Why do I love the other one”. We sent our lists to her separately and during our wedding she read it out. It was a huge surprise and a very emotional moment for us and our guests.

Afterwards we had a champagne reception and shootings with family, relatives and our witnesses. We left for the next photo shooting which took place at the most attractive outside location in Hamburg, our gorgeous Alster lake.

Our catering was by Okzident and it was beautiful and our wedding cake which was made by my father-in-law, topped of a truly marvelous day.

We did a lot of things by ourselves to give our wedding a personal touch:

Boys and girls, a huge THANK YOU to our witnesses, family and all listed vendors who mostly became friends! This day couldn’t have happened without you.
