That 1st wedding of the year Starting with a bang!It’s the beginning of the year, The New Year celebration hangovers are long forgotten but the memories are still a joyful reminder of what a great night we all had. January 27th was my 1st wedding of the year and I must say there are a lot of advantages of having your wedding in winter.It gets dark early, meaning you’re getting the biggest return on that ambient lighting you selected for the location.It’s not so hot, that…Continue Reading “That 1st Wedding of the year”

2 years ago I took my camera along to photograph my setup for Sanja & Peter and I just so happened to take a few more of the reception itself. This year I wanted to test the capabilities of my new camera and what better way than to shoot a little bit of video. Since sending this short film to my Bride & Groom I’ve received quite a bit of positive feedback and requests to film other weddings and events, Ester & Jonte have kindly…Continue Reading “Barn Wedding 2017”

When Adriana & Carsten asked if I would like to help them with their wedding, I had a hunch this was going to be something quite special. Adriana is Brazilian so for me that meant Party and Carsten lives in the UK and that means pretty darn cool! Then if that wasn’t lighting fires then there wedding reception was going to be held on a Sunday, during the day! This makes Adriana and Carsten’s wedding the most unique in all the weddings I’ve ever done. So…Continue Reading “Sunday Wedding 08.17”

  2 weddings back to back Alte Wassermühle zu Bentrup The beauty of being recommended by venues is sooner of later you’re going to end up doing 2 weddings back to back. So what’s so monumental about that you may ask? For one, in some cases I  get to combine concepts, meaning clients get more that what we initially designed and who doesn’t like getting more than what they are paying for?  What I really enjoy though, is that harmonious feeling you get when coming…Continue Reading “Wedding in Bielefeld 09.17”

About 2 weeks ago I finally decided I would attend my first WeddingExpo. Naturally this one of the best locations in this area to showcase what you do. However preparation time was limited and seeing already the stalls that others had built at various other exhibitions, I was really on the back foot. So really I big ‘tip of the hat’ to other vendors for the amount of work they put into their stands, I now can really appreciate how much hard work it is,…Continue Reading “Hochzeitsmesse 2017”


If there is one thing I love is being given a complete empty room to create something special. This is exactly what happened here in this barn. 3 weeks previous when I visited the location it was full of wheat, 3 mounds over 8ft. in height. However 1 week later and it was all gone and we had our empty room to work from. Barns are not great for modern music. The tall roof means you also lose a fair amount the low frequencies hitting…Continue Reading “The Barn 14.10.17”

Friederike & Carsten

An afternoon of classic family fun with a night of high energy dancing. Under the motto of ‘let your spirit free’ family and friends of this great couple ascended upon this gorgeous setting in the Vlotho hills that looked out over the Teutoburger  and Wesergebirge Forests and in the distance shone the Monument of Kaiser-Wilhelm. Construction started 2 days previously together with Sandra Mehlich, in near gale force winds and provisions were made for a 10ºC day although we would have so much preferred 30ºC….Continue Reading “Woodstock vs Vlotho”

I’ve known Jeremy for over 20 years, so it was such an honour when he asked If I could DJ at his wedding. “Sure where in Gütersloh are you and Heike getting married?” “We’re not it’s in Potsdam” Somehow the conversation moved onto photography and seeing as the ceremony was going to take place in the evening, I felt I would have the energy to be able document their wedding. We agreed that once the music started the cameras would go back in their bags…Continue Reading “Heike & Jeremy”
