From the moment I met Barbara and Marcel I was looking forward to their wedding. They are such a sincere, likeable and smitten couple – I could almost see the sparks between them when they told me their love story and so I was very excited to shoot their fall wedding in the heart of Vienna.
Barbara is a very sophisticated woman with sure feeling for fashion and style. From the very beginning she reminded me a little of an actress from the 50´s. When I came by on their wedding day for the getting ready at the Hotel Altstadt Vienna Tina from Your Choice Vienna had just finished up Barbaras make-up and styling and Barbara slipped into her beautiful Michel Mayer dress. I was speechless – there she was, my elegant bride as if she came directly from and old Hollywood movie.
Meanwhile Marcel got ready for this special day at his friend´s and best man´s apartment. I had to chuckle when I entered. It was decorated all over with pictures of former actresses and divas and furnished with furniture from the 40´s and 50´s.
Everything just matched so perfectly and merged into a harmonious overall picture.
The two got married in the imposing Ulrichskirche of Vienna´s 7th district encircled by their friends and families. Afterwards they invited all their guests to an agape in the backyard to taste the delicious berry-cake from Frömmel Confectionery.
When it started raining we all set out for the nearby Museumsquartier for a lovely couple-shooting. Despite the rain Barbara and Marcel enjoyed this photo session very much and we all had so much fun together. The results were countless wonderful memories of this one-of-a-kind day full of love, laughter and fun. Barbara and Marcel are exhibit for not letting bad weather ruin the most beautiful day of your life – as the saying goes: one must celebrate when one has the chance!
And that´s what they did at the rustic restaurant Glacis Beisl. Barbara and Marcel served their guests delicious food, moving speeches did not leave a dry eye left and laughter filled the room. Everybody whooped it up and danced throughout the night. It was the perfect wedding as one would wish!
Dear Barbara and Marcel, from all my heart I want to thank you for trusting me and esteeming my work. For your shared future I wish you all the very best.
