Thorsten and Mona may have had their wedding in Germany, but their choice to incorporate Indonesian traditions and décor made this wedding a true Indonesian wedding! Their invitations were designed based on the traditional Indonesian Batik, the wedding attire was custom made in Indonesia, and the food was delicious Indonesian cuisine! Gut Sedlbrunn in Germany offered the perfect reception venue for the soft blue and green handmade decor. Troistudios Photography expertly captured the amazing moments at this traditional wedding!
Thorsten and Mona
Gut Sedlbrunn, Pöttmes, Germany
We chose shades of our favorite colors blue and green, and Mona meticulously planned the wedding décor with as many Indonesia inspired design elements as possible, yet keeping a contemporary countryside and vintage style. The invitation and all other printing design was based on Indonesian batik and created by an Indonesian designer. The bunting was partly Indonesian batik as well, and the Asian paper umbrellas, wooden bird cages, wooden Nyonya figures, and the metal boxes for the Indonesian Street Style Crisps called “Krupuk” were mostly even brought from Indonesia. All wedding outfits were custom made in Indonesia as well.
Our church ceremony was even more wonderful than we could have possibly hoped for — mostly thanks to our amazing Indonesian priest. It was not only spiritual, but also very personal and funny — and he deserved the standing ovations after his surprise performance of Elton John’s “Can you feel the love tonight” as well as our spontaneous invitation to join celebrations after the ceremony!
The Couple Recommends:
Hanni and Marcus were great and very committed photographers, and we love how they captured our special day! They had a good feel not only for us but kept also flexible for our own ideas as well. They were great company, and it was fun to be with them and photographed by them!
