Clodagh & Conor | Zell am See

Two Irish, living in NY and getting married in Zell am See. WHAT? Clodagh and Conor dreamed about a winter wedding in Austria, and well it was the snowiest wedding I’ve ever seen.

Clodagh and Conor are super kind and fun couple with hearts on the right place. I am very happy that internet brought us together.

The preparations and party took place in Schloss Prielau located in a picturesque scenery next to the lake. The snowy landscape looked like a fairytale. The couple welcomed the guests with a snowball fight, which made for a fun atmosphere.

I want to thank the family and friends for a warm welcome and wish the couple all the best.

Sonja & Theo | Altaussee

Winter weddings are always something special. The light has a different colour, the days are short and the “Glühwein” in your hand makes it very cosy to observe the snow covered mountains.

This time two handballers tied the knot. Sonja and Theo are two marvelous, easy-going people with hearts made of gold.

The preparation started in Villa Jungmann, a beautiful piece of architecture from the 19th century.  Friends gathered here days before and tested the static of the building the night before. 

The wedding afterwards moved to garden centre “Gärtnerei Reischenböck”. To be honest I was quiet sceptical when I first heard about this idea. Who would like to sit next to a cactus on a wedding? But what a surprise! Once it was decorated and the candles lit on, the place changed to something magical. On top of that the construction of the green house provided an excellent opportunity for kids to litteraly hang around :-)

The party was nothing short of legendary. The handball team did not disappoint and DJ Axel Becker threw an amazing party. Bravo!

I was very happy to be part of this beautiful wedding and wish the couple all the best.

Clodagh & Conor | Saalbach Hinterglemm

Clodagh and Conor are a wonderful Irish couple living in NY. I was happy to accompany their epic wedding in Saalbach Hinterglemm.

For their pre-shooting we took the lift to this beautiful mountain in Saalbach-Hinterglemm and the cloudy sky suddenly cleared up and we could enjoy the stunning panorama. Sometimes you are just lucky. What we did not expect was the enormous wind. I felt like a testing car in the aerodynamic tunnel. My cameras froze and did not want to fire. But the Irish did not mind and showed their hard shell. At once all their jackets were flying in the wind and Conor even lost his sunglasses. I hope that this pictures will be at least a minor plaster for his loss.

Stay tuned for their stormy wedding coming soon :-)

Patrick & Rose | Vienna

Patrick & Rose are very friendly couple from the US. Patrick did not tell Rose anything about our shooting and it was nice suprise. What a great way to spice up your stay in Vienna. 

We explored the historic centre of Vienna together and I told the couple some fun facts about the monuments. Coffee chat at Museumsquartier was the ideal end of this sunkissed evening.

Gloria & Marcel | Galopprennbahn Freudenau Prater

Marcel and Gloria are two ultra sympathetic teachers from Vienna. Gloria, as you could have already seen loves horse riding and Marcel is a professional dancer.

They chose a rather atypical but cool wedding venue Galopprennbahn Freudenau, which has a long tradition of horse racing starting already in the 19th century. Hidden in the forests of Wiener Prater, the place discloses atmosphere of the monarchy times. The whole place has a beautiful patina. I am always amazed to find out these fantastic hidden spots here in Vienna. The ceremony took place in the closeby Chapel. Even the kids from school came to congratulate their favorite teachers :-)

It was a very pleasant wedding with great and funny guests. I am very happy that I could be part of it. Thank you and wish the couple all the best.

Verena & Nikolai | Prater

Verena and Nikolai are just fun, so I couldn't think of any other better location than Wiener Prater at night. I really love when couples are ready to experiment with me. This time we did a night shoot, including light painting and turning rounds on Ringelspiel. We planned to do some other attractions, but our stomachs did not share the same opinion:-) 

Well this is what came out. Fasten up your seatbelts and enjoy the ride :-)

Marina & Kevin | Schloss Pichlarn

I always love to return to the beautiful Styria. Weather is cool and the people are warm.  Marina & Kevin firstly met on the golf pitch in Schloss Pichlarn and decided to marry here as well. Golf is simply the game of their love  :-)

It is amazing to see how much love and adoration the two of them felt for each other.

It was a beautiful wedding, with an amazing couple in a dreamy location. I wish the couple many happy years together and thank you for your warm welcome.
