Minimalist Nature-Inspired Wedding on a German River

Karina and Mike met during their social work studies at a ‘bahnhofsmission’ – a refuge for people experiencing homelessness. After three days they attended a rock concert together and fell in love. They booked their photographer, Axel Link, only two weeks before the big day, just wanting a memory of their celebration, rather than formal pictures of the ceremony. Axel told us, “They thought this would be boring and just wanted pictures of the party!”

With a minimalist, natural theme in mind for their wedding, Karina and Mike kept things simple. They knew they wanted to incorporate all the things they loved, and just have a great time celebrating with their friends and family. Love and nature were their inspirations.

Sandra and Hendrik were together for 12 years before they were married. They met in August 2004 at a funfair and distinctly remember the smell of popcorn filling the air.
