Two weeks before leaving my beloved Copenhagen I received a call from a German couple who needed a photographer for their wedding in Denmark. I met Gwendolyn few days after and we talked about us. It’s really important for me to know who is the client I will work for and my client has to feel comfortable with me as well. I can say that it has not be so hard to fall in love with her story and her family. So, despite of my very next move I decided to accept to be their wedding photographer.
I met Gwendolyn the second time at the wedding day, two hours before the celebration in a very local hair dresser. There she started to get prepared helped by her best friend Camila.
…ready to go to the City Hall!
When she arrived the atmosphere was beautiful, so relaxed! Only few guests, the family and some of the closest friends. The Gentofte Town Hall has been a great surprise for me, usually the City Halls are not so “fancy” but I really loved this one! Thorvald Jørgensen was the architect selected to build it in the first half of 20th Century and he opted for a Neoclassical style. The most particular thing is the roof entirely made of glasses, the light inside was simply amazing.
The Wedding room was unusual, the bride and the groom were facing the guests but it was at the same time so sweet that the couple could get married in front of their two kids.
Gwendolyn and Markus to celebrate the wedding decided to go to one of my favorite places outside Copenhagen.. The Ordrupgaard Museum in Charlottenlund, designed by the Iraqi-born architect Zaha Hadid who recently left us in 2016. A beautiful mix of glass and black lava concrete, surrounded by an amazing garden.
The old part of the Museum is in Neoclassical style, a very romantic place to have a nice shooting of the bride with the groom.
What I really loved about this wedding has been the simplicity of everything, also the flowers of the table had been picked in the garden outside the cafe. The white and the nature colors ruled all the location. Gwendolyn and Markus exchanged their promises in front of their families and friends and I can say I almost cried.. there were love, respect, devotion in all the words they said. Between a smørrebrød and the other almost their friends toasted the bride and the groom and they cried and laughed all together. So honored I could be present at those magic moments.
After the lunch Gwendolyn and Markus left their guests riding their danish-cargobike! The same they usually use to bring the kids at school. A nice way to take their time to go back home.
Thank you Gwendolyn and thank you Markus! I wish you with all my heart more than a life always together!
