Today I am thrilled to share this stunning German Wedding beautifully captured by Rob Grimes Photography.
Steffen & Susann are a German couple that are living over in the UK.
Steffen is also a serving Staff Officer in the German Army and is currently stationed over in the UK. working for the HQ of the ARRC in Gloucester.
Rob shares his recollections of the Couples Big Day.
“With groom prep in full swing I was jumping for joy capturing items linked to the couples past such as the Union Jack socks and Mexican Wrestler badge.”
“These were linked to the Vicar they met in Mexico years ago and who was here to give them away today.”
“I was clearly in my element with so many details to capture for the morning.”
“After a brief hour or so, it was time to leave and swap places with Tracey Barrow, who was to be shooting alongside me that day and was about to cover the Bridal prep.”
“SO after leaving the girls to get ready and look gorgeous, I left to go visit the local for a quick beer with the groom and best man.”
“Afterwards I headed onto the venue , to capture the joy of their guests arriving all the way from Germany, so many of their family and friends had made the journey over to share in their special day.”
“With their guests arriving and drinks and stories being shared, it was time for me and Steffen to head on over to the Church.”
“Churchdown Church was the venue for their wedding and again to be delivered in German by their friend and vicar for the day all the way from Germany.”
“The ceremony was stunning, was spoken in English (I think so i could understand) and in German, and their love for each other was clear to see.”
“Such a remarkable ceremony that could being a tear to anyones eyes.”
“Their joy at being married in front of their family was a great time for me to capture as many memories as possible for them.”
“After the ceremony, we captured the groups shots in and around the sunny backdrop of the church and then I spent some time with Steffen and his new wife, capturing the most intimate and romantic couple shots.”
“Their true love for each other was clear to see and it was a joy to behold…..”
“Then after we all headed back to the Officers Mess at Imjin Barracks that was to be the location for the reception.”
“Followng the meal and speeches there was their first dance as Husband and Wife.”
“At around 10pm that evening, it was time for me and Tracey to finish, however with the German hog roast about to start, the cameras were packed away and I managed to help celebrate the day with Stefffen and Susann into the early hours, with a beer and slice of the bbq…fantastic!”
“It truly was a stunning day, an amazing wedding and I am thankful for the opportunity to have been able to capture their amazing German Wedding in the UK.”
Thanks so much to Rob for letting me share this incredible German Wedding Day.
So family centred and especially so as so many family and friends had travelled to be there.
These were most definetely Priceless moments of love or “Unbezahlbare Momente der Liebe” between a gorgeous couple.
