Warm and sunny October wedding at Rila Erleben, Stemwede, Levern
This groom’s smile is just contagious. His happiness spreads to everyone around him. It is wonderful to see such a cute couple getting married after many years. On their special day I met the two of them while they were getting ready and can you believe it the mother of the bride didn’t just made a dress for herself and the sister of the bride, she also made the wedding dress – and wow what a dress it was! And what a lovely figure the bide has! Stunning!
The sister did the make-up, the father peaked through the window and grandma gave the bride her necklace.
Everyone was ready for the ceremony at Rila Erleben. Outside under some grapevines were friends and family watching the two getting married. Even if it was the first of October it was warm enough for this outside ceremony and I can always deeply recommend it! Not only photographically speaking it offers many opportunities but also for the whole atmosphere it is wonderful.
We raised the glasses to them still outside when the sun decided to come out and had another amazing wedding-cake. I loved that this year people seamed to prefer fresh creams and fresh fruits on their cakes. I had to have a piece of every flavour – there were three. Me and my assistant were very happy…
We lost a bit track of time, so we had to do the bride and groom shoot quite quickly before the sun would set. But I think we managed to do some of the most wonderful pictures! I just love the portraits in front of the fir tree.
The celebration continued inside the building with some games, yummy food, a stunning view, speeches and games and then of course the dancing.
Thanks again you two!

A quick shout out to the location: Rila Erleben
I can truly recommend it! It offers so many opportunities photography wise but also for the whole celebration. It makes the wedding unique and interesting. You can have an outside ceremony and celebrate inside with a wonderful view. There are many different options and it is not far from Minden.
