Good morning all! I hope your weekend was lovely? We have a pretty treat this morning! I put the call out a little while ago for some more European weddings, I felt we could blog SYGM style weddings but cast out a little further and this beauty came in from Austria. Christina and Andreas got married last summer on the Amalfi Coast and then had a party for all of their friends and family when they were back in Austria. This is such a gorgeous way to start the week! Claudia shoots in the UK if you love her work then have a look!
We chose to see each other before the ceremony because we knew it would be a busy schedule and not enough time to cherish just between the two of us. So with our wedding photographer Claudia we headed to Schlossberg, the main tourist attraction of our little town and guess what it was so hot (about 36 degrees) that we were completely alone there. Some of our most beloved pictures were taken there. The ones below the famous Hackher Löwe (the mighty lion statue).
DIY project – We filled frames with photos from our civil ceremony that took place in Ravello, Amalfi coast. Claudia our photographer joined us in Italy and took some beautiful images for our album. Since no family was present we presented the pictures at the wedding in Austria.
If you are a DIY enthusiast like us you will have a ball planning your wedding. We did not hire a wedding planner and really loved the challenge. I mean, when do you get to throw a party for 80 people, right? Anyhow, there are of course highs and lows during the many months of planning and my biggest advice: Do your thing. It is your big day!
We were lucky to have a very experienced photographer who gave us lots of ideas and inspiration what to do for our ceremony in Italy as well as Austria. We wanted to combine the two since none of our family and friends were present in Italy we had frames filled with our most precious moments of that special day.
