This summery German wedding with red accents is exactly the breath of life you need this week. From custom designed invitations to adorable red and white twine throughout the minimalist and natural decor, the style of Anja and Henning’s wedding is positively delightful. Hanna Witte beautifully captured the whimsical garden ceremony and romantic moments shared by the couple. As if Anja and Henning weren’t sweet enough on their own, their candy bar display is curing our sweet tooth!
Anja and Henning
Nothenhof, Düsseldorf, Germany
We decided on a grey-red-white color scheme. It was important for us to mix old elements with new ones. Therefore, vintage furniture and decoration played a crucial role in our decoration. There were our initials made of wood on tables, on signs, but also on napkins.
We also worked a lot with black board paint. Thus, there was a huge sign above our altar inscribed with “Es muss ein wunderbares sein” (translated as “It must be wonderful, withal,” which is the first line of a poem by Oscar von Redwitz). Throughout the whole wedding, it was important for us that every detail reflected our style and ourselves.
As Henning works as a firefighter, we arrived in Düsseldorf by an old timer fire truck. In the vehicle, there was also our photographer. The drive was one of the most beautiful moments of our wedding. All of our guests were able to follow us – obviously because of the size and color of the truck- and we had a few minutes for ourselves.
We had a wonderful wedding with many sweet memories. Every second was filled with love and happiness. Even though we had an exhausting planning time, it was worth it! Without the help of our family and friends, it would not have been possible to realize our ideas. Their wholehearted commitment was essential for our wedding – from the planning to the party!
