Vanessa and Benjamin and Sandra and Tobias at their Bavarian countryside double wedding – The Festival Of Love
Both couples are very good friends and got married separately in 2017 in a registry office in Munich. They where both small intimate weddings with only their families and closest friends attending so they decided that this year they wanted to celebrate their love in front of all their friends and called it the Festival Of Love.
It was a true hippie wedding. Wild flowers, children, camper van’s, country air, farm animals, shoes off and lots of dance and laughter. A lot of talented friends and family helped out to make it the perfect day. A friend of Benjamins rents out the farm but it has only recently started being used as a wedding venue. Benjamin also is the manager of a sound company so the evening entertainment was sorted with super sound and the best of Munich’s Raggae and Hip-Hop DJ friends.
Vanessas and Sandra’s stunning dresses where both personally designed and hand made. To save some money they chose their flowers at the flower market and arranged them themselves on the table along with some super simple and beautiful white cloth napkins, home made jam as give aways and old wine bottles with white dripping candles. When they got lit together with the lanterns it made the atmosphere just perfect.
They decided to have a humanist ceremony, led by their friends. Everyone sat on carpets and a lot of tears of happiness where shed.
Afterwards we went straight to do the couple pictures as they didn’t want to line up for thank you’s but rather dance the night away once we had time for some stunning evening sun couple portraits.
The food was a street food bbq and an amazing vegan buffet alongside it by Surdhams Kitchen. A lot of their friends made deserts and brought them along to round up a wonderfully, relaxing meal.
The bar was stocked to the brim and after the sun had gone down there was only one thing left to do, have a brilliant time dancing to the best sound and celebrate these wonderful couples at the Festival Of Love.
