What more could you want than to shoot an awesome Aussie couple in Berlin?
Merren and Chris moved to Berlin for an 'adventure', which was supposed to last a year or two. Three+ years later, and with the addition of little Hayley to the fam, they seem to have settled into the Berlin life for good.
Merren and Chris wanted to show off their Berlin life to all their friends and family, and took guests on a tour of the city by through venue hops and walking routes. It was super thoughtful and full of unique and quirky touches (cue mini schnaps bottle favors).
There was a sweet pre-ceremony reveal at Museum Island, where bike tour guide Merren often takes visitors. Merren's colleages from Fat Tire bike tours even dropped some bikes down for a photo opp! We then headed to the absolutely stunning Clärchen’s Ballhaus Spiegelsaal (aka Hall of Mirrors), for a heartfelt ceremony, including ballad vows! A walk down to a local Späti for beer and pretzels followed, and then a short trip on the Ubahn took guests to the reception at Schönwetter beer garden.
Merren and Chris's happiness was overflowing and contagious, and made for the most amazing day! We are so lucky to have been a part of it!
Another awesome U.K. wedding wrapped up and also the smallest one I have had the absolute pleasure to capture!
Lara and Mark's day was a simple affair where they exchanged vows at the local Register Office in Hammersmith, which also just happens to be situated right near the river Thames. Their day was witnessed by two of their dear friends and the wonderful people who had me come along to capture it all, Sara and Tom. The ceremony was an absolute cracker of an affair with the two city officials and celebrants fighting to hold themselves back from dancing to the Motown music playlist that the wedding party had loaded up.
One of the great things about the U.K. are the ample pubs that even without a plan you can find, grab a drink or three in and have a great time. All of 100m away from the town hall was the gorgeous little pub known as The Dove that sits beside the river Thames. The champagne was popped and several pints of ale were drunk by all, which sparked everyone's enthusiasm to get dirty by walking into the low tide of the river for photos. Did we ruin our shoes in the muck? Sure did! Was it worth it? Well, look ahead and tell me what you think in the comments below. This truly was a celebration of love and true friendship.
Much love all you awesome folk!
