Last year, we met this lovely couple in the Netherlands at Margot and Brian’s wedding. In case you have not seen that wedding jump over to the blog feature right here when done with this wedding.
Back than, Tim came up to us and secretly asked for our business card. He said, “You know, just in case. But don’t tell Kerstin. She might find out otherwise.” So we talked a bit with him and dealt our moo cards underhand ;-)
It’s been a lot of fun with them and all the other New Zealand and international guests last year and we were really excited as we heard from Kerstin later that year. She was so so happy about the upcoming big things.
The day was coming and the weather was brilliant. Everyone living in middle Europe knows how it was in the recent weeks. It’s been super hot. But having a out door ceremony near the water can’t be too hard. But wait and see.
The getting ready was in Starnberg’s Four Seasons Hotel. Nice hotel rooms and very close to the Rowing Club area where the wedding took place.
Tim was early at the venue together with the groom’s men as they had to finalize some stationary and stuff. Everyone was trying to hide as much in the shade as possible but still, the biggest wish from all of us was dipping in the lake for a second. Some of us were drinking to less water too.
Kerstin was a stunning bride. Her father brought her with a rowing boat in Tim’s arms and a couple of hounded eyes followed them through the water. Brilliant!
It was a emotional and different ceremony. Different from everything else we have had in the last 6 years because it maybe was a bit to much for Tim. The excitement for getting married to the love of his life, the heat without a breeze cooling him down and the fact, that he had drunken too less water that day knocked him out.
We could see his conditions getting worse with every word being said. Not many people did realize what was going on with him but when is the moment for a photographer to take action and disturb the ceremony to lay down the groom into the shock position? Not too early right? So at the last stage before he lost consciousness we put our camera away and started some action to help Tim getting better.
It’s been a bit weird to be honest, but at the end it was necessary. To cut the story short: Tim needed about 20 minutes to get back on track and after putting his feed into the “cold” Starnbergersee he was full of energy again. The point of return of his situation was definitely the first kiss! Never seen a sweeter one than this!
The rest of the party was like nothing ever happened. Everyone had great fun and enjoyed the lovely event until late in the night.
It was a huge pleasure to meet so many folks from last year and also a bunch of new ones. Who knows, maybe we meet them all again somewhere else in the world. We are open to travel anywhere in the world :-) *hinthint*
Here is to thank Kerstin and Tim for having us being part of the great day. Wishing you all the best and good luck for your future together.
Carmen and Ingo
