Last year in October we got a very nice and interesting inquiry. Kathi and Björn planed to get married secretly and just by themselves. We should cover their day as well as doing a nice shooting along with Fusion. We also should take pictures and videos from the new house they were building at the time. The plan was, that during the housewarming party and virtual house tour, we mix some scenes and pictures from the wedding in that short house video, to surprise the guests. Well, that was the plan and we loved it.
We met Kathi and Björn in Vienna earlier this year to get to know them and talk about the plan and details. All was good. But short before the secret wedding date, we got a message from them, that the house is not as ready as it should be and it will not be nice to take videos and photos of the house for the tour. They where very sad but together we had a couple of ideas how to make it still happen.
So we headed to Austria beginning of July to stay two days with them at their amazing house. We just loved it. Very nice planed, perfect place and wonderful garden. It’s kind of a dream house actually.
We were very happy with the weather and we loved the light we had that day. The shooting with family, the dogs and sure the newly weds were gorgeous and we could not wait to meet their friends for the surprise wedding party the next day.
It’s very difficult to keep something like that secret over month and you should have seen the faces of their friends when the unveiled the “Just Married” balloon with the words “Welcome to our wedding party by the way”.
We saw lotsa surprised faces, tires of joy and also surprisingly not a single mad person. You could imagine that maybe the closest friends would have like to be at the celebration too but everyone was happy for them and so the party could go on and on.
They had very delicious food and again very lucky weather conditions so this together with the surprise made it a perfect party for everyone!
For us it was totally nice to be there. It’s still wedding related but also was new the way they wanted to created that surprise for their friends. We loved the days out there and we thank you both for having us being part of this all.
Looking forward to meeting you soon again.
Carmen and Ingo
