Destination Wedding Photographer: Tine & Andreas Germany Wedding

You get a call, asking you to do your dream job in Germany – on the other side of the world. You:

A) Scream, jump for joy, start packing your gear now despite the Wedding being 10 months away.

B) Immediately pour yourself into your accounts trying to plan an extravagant 4 week holiday surrounding the Wedding.

C) Convince your husband that it’s a great idea for him to come – and bring your 14 month old baby boy too.

D) All of the above.

Did you answer D? DING DING DING! Me too!

I was seriously so overwhelmed when Tine & Andy asked me to shoot their Wedding in Germany, that I immediately did all of the above. I had some moments where I thought perhaps a European Adventure (via Dubai) would not be an
awesome idea with a young toddler.
But then I realised that if we didn’t commit to this, it was very unlikely I would ever get this career opportunity again. And that’s all it took.
We flew over and visited a few other countries while we could. When you really want something, you will make it work.

Tine & Andy’s wedding was dreamy. Absolutely amazing.
If someone was to tell me I would be shooting a beautiful elegant wedding in a 100+ year old mansion,
surrounded by woods & forest in Germany. I would have laughed. Really really hard.
Things like this don’t happen to people like me.

Yet here I am, surrounded by such European warmth and hospitality, that I can barely stand it.
Jams, cheese, kisses, hugs, beer, bread, meats.
Oh, the meats. Meats for breakfast, morning tea, lunch, afternoon tea, and dinner. Meat. Meat. Meat.
The Germans are infectious. They are beautifully nature oriented people, who can still party like you wouldn’t believe.

Tine & Andy’s Wedding was full of love, intimacy, words spoken from not only the heart but the soul.
It was infused with gorgeous Australian details, as Tine & Andy have an affinity with our amazing country
– even getting engaged in our buzzing city of Sydney.
At their Reception at Haus Schnede, they even had a little story board with pictures of their holidays all over the world, but strongly featuring Australia.
Tine wore a single Australian pearl around her neck, carrying our country close to her heart as she married her true love.

What really blew me away were the gorgeous little traditions incorporated into this Wedding.
Tine & Andy opted for a ‘First Look’. That is when the Bride & Groom actually see each other before the Wedding.
A special opportunity for them to share in those initial feelings of pride, between themselves without a huge audience.
This is becoming more and more common in Australia, but these guys did it a bit differently.
They invited their parents to witness in this moment with them.
The parents then entered the church and took their seats, and Andy walked his Bride down the aisle.
The excitement that resonated from them while walking down the aisle in the church was breathtaking.
Andy was so proud of his stunning wife-to-be, and Tine was just totally excited to be marrying her soulmate.
And we all knew it.

Tine & Andy’s bridal party ( ‘witnesses’ in Aussie terms), organised a special surprise for them just before the reception.
They had loads of beautiful balloons inflated, and self-addressed flyers printed attached to each balloon.
Each guest had to write a promise to the Bride and Groom on the flyer.
The promise was meant to be a good luck charm – if someone came across your flyer and returned it to the bride and groom, you had to fulfill your promise.
For example, my Dad promised the couple that if they found his note first, he would cook them a good Aussie BBQ..
but of course they had to come back to Australia to redeem it!
The balloons were then let go in unison, and strayed all over the German countryside.

NOTE: By the time we reached Munich at the end of our European Adventure, 3 weeks after the Wedding, Tine & Andy had already received a note back.
I often wonder if the notes would ever find their way home in Australia, or whether they would melt into our earth
before they were found, resulting in torn paper edges and faded writing.

Being a part of their Wedding has been surreal. I feel so incredibly honoured, and I am speechless to be included.
Photographing this will stand as my number one career highlight forever.
They have opened my eyes to a new part of the world, a new culture (or five!), and a new type of honour that I will never be able to thank them for.

They have thousands of photos, but here are a few of my favourites. Enjoy! x
