Angelika & Christian ~ St. Nicholas / Abbey Brauweiler

Granted, we love to travel. Whether on private vacation or for our brides and grooms, never a distance is too far for us. But the wedding in October of Angelika and Christian in the Abbey Brauweiler was for us this time a real home game with just five minutes ‘travel time’.

If you like historical churches, you must have seen the St. Nicholas church of the former Benedictine abbey Brauweiler. A real gem of Romanesque church architecture. However, the small or very high-lying side windows spend very little natural light. A real challenge for wedding photography, but we want stay to our philosophy “no flash during the church wedding” and to make it short, we have managed it this time too. We documented the solemn wedding ceremony of Angelika & Christian, which was accompanied by a fantastic chorus, absolutely “flash free”.

The day of short ways was continued with an only little walk to the wedding reception in the cloister of the Abbey where guests are awaited by 101 wedding cupcakes. After a short strengthening and only one step out from the cloister we had already reached the beautiful park of the Abbey Brauweiler with our bridal couple Angelika & Christian. It is gorgeous, if you have no long rides to photo locations, so you can use the time to take pictures and your bride and groom can spend more time with their guests or get more varied photos from different spots.

A wedding in the fall, as this in October, has the great advantages. One is that the sun is already very low in the late afternoon and so photos are possible, you would have to wait in summer until the very late evening hours. We love this light and look forward even more when – as here – it all fits together so perfectly: a gorgeous bride and groom, fantastic weather and a terrific location. We are so lucky to be wedding photographers and meet all these lovely people.

Here, to inspire you, some pictures from Angelika & Christian’s awesome wedding at the Abbey Brauweiler.
