Summer Wedding in Hamburg with Disco Balls & Bold Colours

Jen + Ole

July 2, 2024

Nick and Lisa’s wedding was a bright and colourful celebration that embodied the motto ‘more is more.’ The wedding took place in the heart of Hamburg, in a location that felt like a hidden island with stunning views of the Elbe River. The theme was simply ‘summer chic’ and their bold use of colour was reflected in the guests’ attire. Everyone wore bright colors and prints.

“We wanted our wedding to be a true reflection of who we are and the amazing friends we have,” said Lisa. “It was wonderful to see everyone in such vibrant outfits.”

The ceremony was far from traditional. Instead of a formal processional, Lisa entered to Hot in Here by Nelly, played on the guitar by their friend Tom. “We didn’t have wedding vows, but our friends found lovely words to share,” Nick added. Two of their best friends officiated the ceremony for them.

Nick and Lisa also decided to forgo classic wedding traditions like a wedding cake and a traditional first dance, too. After lunch, they surprised their guests by changing into matching sweatsuits instead of opening the dance floor with a formal dance. The couple also chose to focus on unposed moments with their friends rather than formal portrait sessions or group pictures.

“There was no single favourite part,” Lisa reflected. “It was nice to see how everything gradually took shape and how we complemented each other in the process. From spending the night before apart and not knowing what the other would be wearing, to finally standing together at the front and seeing each other in our wedding outfits for the first time, it was all amazing.”
