We traveled Germany, to a little fairtytale-like town called Bamberg, where two amazing people tied the knot. Bamberg is where their love story began, so it made sense to celebrate their Best Day Ever here. Back then, Marie was studying in Germany and Huw was traveling around the world. One night, he spotted her in a bar in Cologne and built up the courage to talk to her. He walked up to her and asked “Do you speak English”, she was a little shocked but lucky for him her answer was “A little bit”. From then on, Huw stayed on in her hometown in Bamberg where their relationship flourished… they eventually moved to Sydney together where they now call home.
It was a nice, calm start to the wedding day before their afternoon ceremony at Catherine chapel in the old court followed by refreshments in the nearby Rose garden. We spent the remaining time before reception wandering to as many streets as we can in Bamberg to capture their love and happiness that day… we really couldn’t get enough! Every corner you turn there is the perfect photo spot.. what a photographer’s dream! The party continued in the old Knight’s hall of a 15th century castle until early in the morning! (We wrapped up around 1AM and the dancing had only just started!)
We loved sampling authentic German food, learning about the culture, and even got to attend their Polterabend (a German pre-wedding gathering) and drinking ALL the beer… yes it’s been quite
the experience! A million thank you’s for giving us this amazing opportunity Marie & Huw!
