Larissa and Kai’s Wedding – Mölln Germany Rustic barn wedding

Larissa and Kai’s big day was finally here….! Friends and family gathered in the small German village of Breitenfelde to celebrate their marriage. Their Rustic barn wedding was to be held within the rolling hills of Molln.

Larissa looked picture perfect. Her golden hair was softly wrapped up with flowers pinned throughout.

The simplicity of her Sottero and Midgley off-white gown, draped from one shoulder and flowing to her toes, perfectly matched the pearls around her neck.

It was a breathtaking moment when Larissa walked elegantly down the stairs and Kai slowly turned around to see his bride – he greeted her with a magical smile.

The 13th century gothic church was just a short distance from Mölln, near Hamburg, set in the rolling green hills of the northern German countryside.

Instead of following German tradition, my friends wanted to make their wedding special and reflect who they had become as a couple.

Larissa said the priest’s speech was very personal and romantic and he spoke about their love and how they met.

“We also chose a quote from the Bible for our marriage which was basically saying, be pleased that your names are written into the sky,’’ she said.

The couple wrote their own wedding vows, which created a very personal ceremony and touched everyone in the room.

“It was pure love saying those words. Family and friends started crying and our words made the ceremony very personal, romantic and special,’’ she said.

After the ceremony, we took some photos under a canopy of beautiful tall green trees and the bridesmaids contrasted perfectly in their dusky pink Grecian style gowns.

Tall and handsome in his black suit, Kai looked striking in a René Lezard suit. The groomsmen wore handsome suits of black and grey with stunning white shirts and vertical striped grey and silver ties from Best Labels Lehrte.

At the Hotel Waldhof auf Herrenland

The reception took place at Hotel Waldhof Auf Herrenland in a rustic barn constructed from ancient timber bolsters and adorned with white linen, and cream and purple lanterns.

We all enjoyed beautiful food and, after the cake was cut and the guests consumed their lovely cupcakes, there was dancing and the party really started!
