Dominika and Eugen’s wedding in Bonn. A beautiful day with beautiful weather. We started with the standesamt at the Bundespräsidentamt – Villa Hammerschmidt where we all had to undergo an identity check before we could enter. Also, the undercarriage of vehicles were checked for bombs. It was the first time I experienced this while covering weddings in Germany. Some pretty awesome stuff. 🙂
One thing I can say on a wedding is Murphy’s Law rules. While getting ready for the church wedding held at the Kreuzbergkirche, we had some “technical difficulties” getting into the hotel room. Apparently the key wouldn’t work. After going up and down to the reception three times and returning with three different hotel keycards, we finally got the door open on the fourth try. And were 20 minutes behind schedule. Me, being every the happy photographer, decided to use this time to take portraits of the bride in the hotel corridor.
The reception was held at the Kaiserbahnhof, a very interesting location indeed. They have a little playground at one end for events where there are lots of kids around. A bored kid….. well, any parent will know, is not what you want to have around while you’re trying to enjoy your meal. So, enjoy the pics! I know I enjoyed photographing the wedding, and processing the pictures. 🙂
