This Classic German Wedding at Hochzeitshaus Aurich Has Some Unconventional Details

Imke and Sönke’s classic wedding at elegant 19th century villa turned modern hotel at Hochzeitshaus Aurich or ‘Wedding House’ in a charming German village was full of romantic décor and rustic details like a bohemian teepee. The couple chose natural colors found in the spacious garden like blue, rose and green, reflected in the gorgeous centerpieces and explosively full bouquets of oversized, colorful blooms by Melanie Noorman Hochzeitsfloristik. The bride’s look was full-on fairytale chic, from her elegant gown from Elbbraut with delicate lace details to her beautiful braided up do with peacock feathers and fresh flowers. We love the rain and tears featured in the couple’s heartfelt first look from Maria Dittrich Photography, underneath their umbrellas in the heart of Aurich’s historic Old Town district, such an authentic and genuine moment.

The Couple:

Imke and Sönke

The Wedding:

Hochzeitshaus Aurich, Germany

For us it was very important that we find ourselves in every detail. This should be OUR wedding and not a wedding that had been organized and arranged for the guests. We put emphasis on this, so that our ideas and concepts would be achieved.

This was the most impressive moment and this is the moment that we will always remember. It was really beautiful when we saw each other for the first time, being alone and without hundreds of eyepairs looking at us. The first look was a very emotional and touching moment for us.

We would advice couples to design and organize the wedding according to their own wishes and expectations. To focus on their selves and their partner on this so a special day. Because it is about you as the wedding couple. It is your wedding day.

We chose the “Hochzeitshaus” (Wedding House in German) because it is a classic and natural venue. It already is, without excesive preparations, a special venue, elegant and classic. The Bar and also the garden fit very well with us and with our wedding concept.

We chose blue, rose, red and a lot of green, because this combination reflects our personality as a couple. It was important for us to have use natural and not exagerated colours.

We gave our guests a little jar of jam with a label designed accordingly with the stationery we used. We wanted to show our guests that we are very happy that they are celebrating with us. We chose marmalade, because this is a natural product and we hope that our guests think about us and our wedding, while savouring this delicious homemade marmalade.
