Fanny and Mathias held their wedding blessing on the tiny island of Rügen in Germany. In such an intimate setting there were limited wedding suppliers so the couple organised many of the finer details remotely and even transported some suppliers in from Berlin! All that effort was well worth it and Fanny and Mathias look to have a beautifully relaxed day surrounded by their nearest and dearest.

What Made Your Wedding Unique?

"We wanted an atmosphere fitting with the location which is atypical but most of all, our wish was a convivial atmosphere. Mixing the nature of the island with a bohemian/vintage/chic touch! We were also really lucky with the weather and managed to spend a lot of time outside in the garden, which was great because we set up some "ouside-corners.

We were already civily married, so this "second-part wedding" was just laid for our families and friends. Somehow, it made that day much more relaxing with less pressure. We were able to enjoy a lot of tiny moments and spend time with our relatives." - Fanny & Mathias

Wedding Blessing

We're seeing more and more couples opt for a two parter of a wedding. In fact when I married my husband we went for a similar arrangement with a formal, legal ceremony followed by a wedding blessing surrounding by our family and friends. Fanny and Mathias called on those friends and family when their florist didn't come through, and they didn't let them down!

Things Don't Always Go To Plan
