Scandinavian Inspired German Wedding at Wasserschloss Unsleben

Mina and Flo’s elegant wedding at a German ‘water castle’ Wasserschloss Unsleben, featured a sophisticated mix of ancient European style and modern Scandinavian details. The picturesque Bavarian castle offered the perfect location for a cozy but spacious barn celebration, a garden wedding ceremony, and plenty of opportunities for romantic couple photos. Inspired by their own apartment décor and wardrobes, the couple created a color palette of pastels and greys with tons of eucalyptus branches that are frequently used to decorate their home. Florist Blattwerk created stunning indoor-outdoor installations influenced by the German countryside and minimalist Scandinavian design. Photographers Melli and Shayne captured this couple in a super sweet and authentic first look in a stunning and emotional series of photos throughout the day.

Wasserschloss Unsleben

We especially liked the fact that our photographers have mixed themselves with the guests as if they were not strangers. Melli and Shayne described the wedding in a very authentic and natural way. They didn´t stage anything. That´s why it was easy to feel comfortable.

Do as much as you can in one place. So you do not waste any unnecessary time on your day with driving around and changing locations. We wanted to spend as much time as possible with our loved ones at our wedding and feel as little stressed as possible.

We mainly used pastel and grey colors. We were inspired by our apartment decoration and our wardrobe. Flo´s clothes got mainly greyish tones andMina´s manly pastel colors. Eucalyptus branches with which we frequently decorate at home should not be missed at our wedding. The decortation was completed by our wedding logo.

In order to lend the wedding to our personal style, we liked to make a lot ourselves. It started with the self-designed papeterie, the indoor and outdoor floral decoration and the music selection with our favorite songs. The style of the wedding decoration is influenced by the minimalist and Scandinavian furnishing style of our apartment. With the implementation of the decoration we had some help from our family and friends.

For us it was most important to find a place where our guests could feel comfortable. It should be cozy with enough space for more than a hundred guests. With the “Wasserschloss Unsleben” we had found a location where we could celebrate our regular wedding ceremony with all our guests in the beautiful garden of the castle.

The castle complex was perfect for the photoshooting and the celebration in the afternoon. The barn on the castle grounds where the evening celebration took place gave us the opportunity to implement our design concept. Moreover, it was the perfect blend between a cozy, romantic but also spacious location.
