Liesa & Sebastian
Lively Photography at a wedding in Düsseldorf
Storm and rain the weather forecast said. And I did drive two hours in pouring rain to Düsseldorf for this wedding only to stop in front of the church and right before the ceremony the clouds cleared a little bit giving us some sunshine with dark clouds. My photographer’s heart smiled.
In a beautiful white old-fashioned car Liesa the bride arrived for the waiting groom Basti and the two and their friends and family enjoyed a catholic (no-photos-allowed) ceremony in the centre of Düsseldorf.
Stepping into their marriage and out of the church the two got celebrated with flowers, greetings and hugs. We took some group pictures and headed off for the bride and groom shooting time. We drove to the fields near the river Rhein and were super lucky with the most amazing light coming out for us. I just love it when there are dark clouds and stripes of light falling through. The two looked stunning and so so happy. I love my job! The whole way driving to Düsseldorf I was so worried, I had my rain-package, my boots and umbrellas for the bride and groom and lots of ideas but they also said it would be stormy, so my head was thinking about what to do all the time only to now realize that the weather was amazingly perfect for our shoot. And we took such great pictures!
After taking some romantic snaps at the Rhein we went to the location, the Sassafras in a wonderful area of Düsseldorf, reminding me a little bit of my beloved London. We had snacks and chats, food and drinks, an amazing photobooth, fun for the little ones, music and laughter, speeches and more food. And then the wedding-cake arrived – the most beautiful, stunning and absolutely tasty wedding-cake I have ever tasted! The top was chocolate with salted caramel, then white chocolate and last dark chocolate… if I remember correctly. This super yummy cake was made by The Baker’s Wife.
The rest of the group partied along till the next morning when I left for my ride home. Liesa and Basti – thank you for having me!
It was such a wonderful time and as you probably remember I loved the shoot at the Rhein, maybe got a little crazy because of it and hope you love the pictures too. I wish you all the best.
Thank you to your friends and family for welcoming me into your celebration, thank you Lena for helping and thank you weatherman :-)
Best Cake ever: The Baker’s Wife, Marie Labude
