Hello everyone and welcome along to another week on the blog, Where did the weekend...
I have a gorgeous wedding for you today from Austrian wedding photographer Siegrid Cain. I have featured Siegrid before with this amazing homemade 2 day wedding and it is a delight to have her back on the blog with this equally beautiful Natural wedding. The wedding has so many lovely aspects from the outdoor ceremony to the ever so cute ring-bearing dog, to the bubble clown!
Daniela & Christian who were married on 15th September 2012 at Kapuziner hof . ‘We wanted to have a non-traditional wedding and because we love nature and are very active with outdoor-sports we also wanted to have an outdoor ceremony, we had 50 guests.’
How they met
We met at a music festival 8 years ago
Why did you choose your photographer?
She was referred to us by a friend and after meeting Siegrid and seeing her style we knew she was the perfect match for us.
It was important to me to have a simple comfortable dress – originally I wanted to get married in a suit because I am not a very girly woman, but Christian begged me to get a dress.
the suit was Italian – very comfortable and cool, no tie or waistcoat
Theme or colour scheme
very simple, natural, elegant. olive-branches, fresh lavender, drift-wood and rope
our menu included a delicious choice of alpine salmon roulades, steak and vegetarian potato pie. As a midnight-feast we had a finger-food buffet.
A DJ – our first dance-song was “Jump”
Flowers and Decoration
Olive-branches, fresh lavender, drift-wood and rope. All arranged in vintage glass bottles and other simple yet beautiful accessories that we also have in our shop
Personal / DIY touches
• Our invitations and menu-cards were all handmade by us.
• We engraved pieces of slate. we really wanted something unusual and different.
• We also organised all the decorations ourselves – we did have a little help with the flower arrangements though.
• The guest-favours were little handmade lavender-pralines.
It started raining just before the ceremony and we decided to go ahead with it anyway. Everybody sat with their colourful umbrellas – that made the day even more special to us. Our gorgeous dog Indy was our ring-bearer and she did a great job too.
Go with your heart and plan it like you really want it. Don’t worry about what other people say.
