The images of Aline and Philipp taken by Troistudios are some of the most evocotive I’ve seen so far in my blogging career.
Their wedding was a simple and intimate affair in the village of Nebel on the island of Amrum and I can feel and sense everything. I can smell the sea. I can feel the heat of the sun on my skin. And there is such a great big tidal wave of love going on between the bride and groom and their baby girl that you may actually need a life-jacket.
Detail wise we’re somewhat limited. But I’ll be honest – I couldn’t care less. When you’ve got sand dunes, a scattering of sweetpeas and limitless sunshine you don’t necessarily need the worlds most unique table plan.
Happy Monday you gorgeous lot you.
We married on May 26th in the village Nebel on Amrum Island (North Sea) / Germany. We live in the South of Germany roughly 900 km away from Amrum Island. This means that we and all our wedding party went for a holiday in order to attend our wedding. Therefore, the weddding party was small and organizing everything from a distance was quite a challenge.
I wore a small hair accessory, a hair slide by Oakland. The jewellery I wore are keepsakes (earrings I bought in Bali and a necklace from my childhood.)
The wedding ceremony took place in the living room of a historic captain’s home that usually serves as a museum.
We celebrated our wedding with a small champagne reception by the sea organized by a wine bar called “Weinfriese”, a lunch at the Hotel Huettmann in Norddorf on Amrum Island and an evening of tappas and wine in the wine bar Weinfriese in Nebel on Amrum Island.
I picked shoes with high heels in a colour that matched the dress. Since we had to walk a bit to get to our ceremony I picked shoes made of soft leather that I was able to walk in quite well. The brand is Singh S. Madan.
I bought the dress from Peek & Cloppenburg a German fashion store chain. The brand of the dress is Mariposa which exclusively sold in Peek & Cloppenburg stores. Although we had such a easy going wedding I wanted a dress that let no doubt who the bride was. That dress was perfect: comfortable but elegant.
I chose a very natural look for my hair and makeup, since the wedding was not too formal. I did the hair and make-up myself.
The flowers in the bouquet and the table centers were white peonies. The florist was Anika Mai of Bluetenschmiede in Nebel on Amrum Island.
Our wedding party was very small so we didn’t have formal bridesmaids or groomsmen. Philipp’s suit was by Masterhand, the shirt by Charles Tyrwhitt and shoes by J. Briggs.
Sense The Atmosphere
Hanni Wurm and Marcus Gründel from Troistudio Photography in Berlin. Hanni and Marcus have the ability to not just capture memories or moments in their pictures but the entire atmosphere and feeling of that special day.
Because all our wedding guest stayed the next day we decided to make a “cake breakfirst”. We ordered a wonderful traditional cake called “Friesentorte”. The local bakery “Cafe Schult” is very famous for that cake.
Good Food and Fine Wine
We did not have formal entertainment. In the evening we all went to a local wine bar where we had tappas and wine. The owners let our favorite music play, we had good wine, food and talks…
Spreading The Love
We will have a second wedding in September 2012, where the church wedding will take place with approx. 100 guests and a big wedding party. The wedding on Amrum island was “just” the civil marriage. We decided to seperate both weddings because we wanted to have our own intimate feast with just a handful of guests, a special location and no stress.
A lot of friends told us, that they can not really remember their own wedding because they had so much stress on their special day. On the other hand we also wanted to celebrate our wedding with all of our friends and families. So celebrating two weddings was our solution for that “problem”. We are looking forward to our big party in September but are very lucky that we had our very special moment on Amrum island with nearly just the two of us.
Ever fancy throwing caution to the wind and just running away just the two of you…eloping as it were?
Oh, and I love that delicate hair chain/clip Aline is wearing A LOT.
