Vintage Wedding in Cologne, September 2017
It was raining cats and dogs as we set out on a Saturday morning towards Pulheim near Cologne, to photograph Lisas and Ollis wedding. September 2017 didn’t leave a good impression weather-wise. Fortunatly, that didn’t spoil the anticipation of the wedding at Rittergut Orr.
We started at the Ascari Hotel in Pulheim, where Lisa got ready and where the two would stay after the wedding. . Together with her sister the bride was styled by a make-up artist, while her parents got ready in the room next door. While Lisa attended to the guests, Stefano went to Lisa and Ollis’s apartment to check in with the groom.
Olli got ready with a couple of friends, who had come from further afield and were staying at their apartment. The mood in the apartment was relaxed, but the excitement was growing. Together with the groom and the best man, Stefano set out for Rittergut Orr.
Due to the rain, the couple decided to go to plan B. The ceremony didn´t occur in the garden as planned, but it one of the l charming rooms of Rittergut Orr. . There were plenty of guests, so it got quiet cozy inside. Lisa arrived and was ushered in by her father. The eyes of the bride and groom spoke volumes and everybody was happy that the ceremony finally started.
Kristina Kutz from „In Worte gezaubert“ officiated (or conducted-your choiced) a beautiful and emotional ceremony and brought many tears to light. . After the exchange of the rings and the wedding kiss, the guests congratulated the newly married couple.
Pimp your Prosecco
Afterwards, there was a champagne reception which included a “Pimp your Prosecco” bar and little cakes were enjoyed as the celebration started in a relaxed and family-like setting. Weatherwise, there was also a bright side spot, so we could go for a little walk in the garden to photograph the couple outdoors. .
Find your Seat
When we returned to the party, it was time for dinner, so Lisa and Olli used a megaphone to call their guests to the dining room. . During dinner, there were speeches and little surprise for the couple. After dinner, everybody celebrated the first dance with sparklers before the friendly DJ really got the party started.
