I met these two love souls for the first time on their civil wedding in June. Unfortunately I was already booked for their church wedding so I couldn’t be part of it too. So Ramona and Konstantin decided to book me for their after wedding pictures and that’s what we did some weeks ago in sunny and beautiful late summer Zurich. The elegant and mesmerizing Villa Patumbah provided a fabulous background for our shoot.
Hooray for after wedding shoots for celebrating your love over and over again. And maybe your wedding day was rainy or you really wish for these pictures because of other reasons, I just love to make this happen for you anytime.
A saturday in this golden october I will cherish for a very long time. Coming together from all parts of the world to celebrate Andreea and Claudio and their love at Schloss Wildegg. Their twelve year relationship coming to its‘ peak on the day of their wedding in beautiful autumn Switzerland. A stunning bride in this gown and veil leaving me speechless. Their heartwarming families reuniting and providing love only. A wedding which fulfilled everyone’s heart especially A&C’s. My favorite part: their personally written wedding vows!
Andreea and Claudio thank you more than anything for your trust, love and your excellent taste.
It was such a honor for me to capture your day.

a wedding full of tears out of joy, tears out of love and deep raw emotions throughout the whole day.
I am SO very thankful to call this my work and passion.
I am honored to now show you the love of Nikki & Dario.

Birgit is one of my longest and best friends and when she and Philipp decided to get married, it was quite a huge honor for me to take pictures of their day. They live in southern Bavaria and even though I had to travel 500 km twice for being there I didn’t hesitate a second. I am a photographer with all my heart and while driving home in the evening I felt that my heart was completely full. B&P I cannot wait for your big Italian ceremony later this year and being your bridesmaid! It was the best for me to capture your day!
Now let’s enjoy your pictures.

I must admit I am not the most romantic person in terms of the classic and cliché romance. So you don’t get me with flowers on my bed or any other stereotype. But you do get me with emotions and words.
I cried my eyes out during the ceremony of Sara and Niels and thankfully I could hide myself behind my camera. The words they both exchanged made my heart melt instantly and the words of her bridesmaid couldn’t be more emotional and deep. I loved their wedding just because it was SO much of these two in everything.
Sara and Niels thank you for having me and for having a wonderful and carefree summer day by your side.
The wedding of Melanie and Thomas was one of those weddings which didn’t feel like work at all. It felt like joining a friends wedding and having a good time. The three of us quickly became friends after meeting for the first time. Dream clients I would say.
I joined Melanie for her final fitting of her wedding dress a few days before her big day and I already knew then, it’s gonna be real emotional.
I always get super excited during the getting ready part and I adore the anticipation coming up in the air. Nothing beats a bridal party getting closer to the time of the ceremony.
The ceremony was actually one of the most funniest and relaxed I have ever witnessed.
The team of the Baur au Lac in Zurich prepared a wonderful venue in their garden next to the Zurich lake.
Balloons in the colors of the wedding – red, rosé and white attached to horseshoes the brides grandfather created.
Tears, laughter and fun. And a couple fully in love having their best day ever. My heart is full.
I wanna redo this wedding over and over again.

I guess I have first heard of Grace Loves Lace about two years ago. Working as a wedding photographer makes you check out brands more often than normally and these dresses instantly caught my eyes. The easiness, modern but oh so special and delicate styles made me instantly wanna marry again (to the same husband, of course). Until now their brand was only available in Australia (where their origin is) and in California. Brides could order their dresses online which are shipped around the world. Which is indeed a very lovely way, but nothing beats a personal visit and trying on your dress live. When I heard about Grace Loves Lace coming to Europe and opening their first flagship store in London, I knew this would change the bridal game forever. Now the dresses and the store was only a short flight away from Switzerland and even more accessible for every bride to be. Last week I flew over to London to visit their store and shoot the interior and their dreamy dresses.
Let’s enjoy your tour through the London Grace Loves Lace store!
As Grace Love Laces says it best on her own, I’ll quote the theme of all bridal dresses:
Long live the woman who throws it all to the wind, chooses and follows through with conviction and zeal, who is reckless in her passion, nomadic in her joy, progressive in her beliefs, knows exactly what she wants, and always, always bets everything on love. The modern, free-spirited woman unbound by monotony and tradition. For the woman with style, substance and passion. She is the unique bride.When you step inside the store you instantly feel calm, inspired and relaxed. The feminine blush tones all over the store makes you got aaaaw and oooooh every second. There are five sections for every single bridal party with couches and different corners individually designed for taking time and actually enjoying trying on the dresses. The store includes breathtaking glass ceilings, exposed brick walls and chic copper hardware. When getting served macarons and rose colored champagne (look at the golden sparkle in the glass!!) you must feel like getting married is the best thing to do. The Grace Loves Lace has french lace exclusively from Calais, France and are customizing their wedding dresses in Australia. You will not find Grace Loves Lace products overpriced and swimming with the tide in any other bridal stores. This is the non plus ultra for me and the niche Grace Loves Lace is filling.
I can clearly recommend the dresses and the store experience of Grace Loves Lace in London. I would have love to shop my wedding dress here, when I got married three years ago. It is just a short trip away for your perfect dress and a dreamy day in modern London. Please make sure to book your appointment directly, before visiting the store as you are only able to have your private tour with a booking at a Grace Loves Lace stylist.

LOVE TO LOVE. Claudia & Chris, a Zurich city wedding which could not have been more fun! Such a relaxed and authentic couple who enjoyed their wedding day to the fullest. Having a first look in their final wedding outfits on the most pittoresque bridge of Zurich. Claudia wore a dream made of tulle and was the most fashionable bride I have ever seen. Who doesn’t want to kiss a bride with those beautiful red lips? And look at their son-oh what a happy day we had in early August. A huge thank you to you guys Claudia and Chris, I really loved spending this special day by your side!

I’m a hard believer in screwing traditions. I will always encourage my wedding couples to go for whatever they want.
These two just nailed it. An intimate wedding in one of the most prettiest hotels in town.

I know exactly how I felt after coming home the night after their wedding. Completely blessed. Ever since I have met them for the first time I knew they were special to me. We connected instantly. Their support was genuine. And all I could admire was their love to each other. The second I saw them on their wedding day felt like attending a friends wedding. We chatted so much during this whole day and it did not feel like work at all. Even their friends and their whole family were treating me like they knew me for a long time. If there is so much love, love can only be returned.
Elena & Andreas you know how much you mean to me. You two are the most caring, warm hearted and lovable persons. And it is clear to see that you are complementing each other. I cannot wait to see you again. Thank you for everything.
