Mandy + André

Vintage Anchor Themed Wedding with a Venue at a Concept Store

Mandy and André had a vintage anchor themed wedding that took place on a Friday the13th. Mandy wore a short dress that day, that wasn’t actually the one she was supposed to wear: a friend of the bride wasn’t happy with the dress she chose for herself, so she went out and bought another one that in her opinion, represented Mandy’s personality better! Their reception took place at the beautiful concept store in Hamburg, with a lot of furnitures and art from the 1920s to the 1940s. I love how relaxed and natural the couple look on those pictures taken by Jessy & Björn of Hafenliebe Hochzeitsfotografie!

The wedding took place on September 13, 2013 in Hamburg. From the couple.

We were really relaxed about everything and I guess that’s what made the big difference. We wanted to keep it simple but look very unique and like us. The Anchor is a symbol that links us as we wear the same chain around the neck and have the same anchor tattooed, so it was obvious that we had to have a lot of anchors on our wedding day. It appeared on the stationary and the cake. The contrast of a tattooed couple with that rustic and vintage look is something that describes us best. Besides all that we chose a friday 13th as our wedding date and it had also been André’s fathers 65th birthday.

… And one thing you’re really happy about/ proud of.

The best thing about our wedding was to spend a whole day with all our loved ones that normally live all over the country. We really enjoyed that!

Tattoos & Snow – a Couple Session by -30

This couple left town to move to this place (the Kawarthas, Canada), closer to nature. I guess this is the reason why it looks so intimate and powerful: we can basically feel how quiet this place is, and how peaceful these two human beings seem to be. I love his tattoos, I love her long vest over that green dress. Those two are beautiful, and they’re in love. Chances are you’ll be as seduced and speeachless as I was when I saw these pictures! Photography by Andreea and Nino of The Love Studio.

The word of the photographers.

Andreea and Tony are a study in contrasts…when you first set your eyes upon them. She is measured, polished, attentive to detail. She has to be: she spends her days leading a team of nurses. Tony, on the other hand, is inked all over, spends his days constructing forms, creating the foundations of buildings. He loves everything he can get his hands on: the guitar, the piano, the bow and arrow. After living his whole life in Toronto, he decided a change of pace was necessary. He decided he wanted to dive in deeper, not spread himself thin. And so, he moved to the Kwarthas. With her love of nature, Andreea soon joined him. And last week they invited us up to spend some time with them. It must have been one of the coldest days of the year…but at least for half of the shoot we were warm inside. They cooked us a never-ending breakfast, played dress up, and braved -30 and almost frostbite so we can get the shot. Andreea and Tony, thank you for trusting us with your story and welcoming us into your home. We’re sure it won’t be the last time.

Fun Retro Rock ‘n Roll Wedding in Berlin

Today’s wedding is a total treat. I know I used a lot of adjectives to describe it in the title but you’ll see they all needed to be used. Many many amazing shots, a super stylish couple, great car and motorcycles (and those scenes on the highway!)… And above all, it looks like everybody had so much fun at this retro rock ‘n roll wedding! A new fave. Photos by Katrin Dinkel – Frau Dinkel.
