{Berlin Wedding} Alex & Alex

You can tell a lot about a person by the way they dance. You can tell even more about a couple by the way they dance together. I realized this as I watched Alex and Alex sway together for hours, often oblivious to everything around them at their wedding reception. It was enchanting to watch and breathtaking to see a couple so very much in love. Their wedding is one I will never forget. The wedding date was very special as Alex proposed to Alex on a beautiful beach in Australia one year before.  They had their ceremony at the Berliner Dom in the Tauf-und Traukirche. In a lovely gesture of remembrance Alex walked down the aisle with a single rose to place on a chair set aside for her mother. Afterwards Alex and Alex took a horse and cart around central Berlin, attracting much attention, while myself and Alex’s bridesmaid followed behind in a convertible so I could take pictures. We stopped at the Brandenburg gate and Alex and Alex were swamped by so many tourists wanting to photograph them that I had to laughingly ‘move’ quite a few excited tourists out of my way everytime I wanted to take a shot. They met their family and guests at Rathaus Café near the Roten Rathaus for coffee and the cake cutting and then after a short break I met Alex and Alex at Opern Palais where we went for a wander around Unter den Linden and some secret back streets and captured some fantastic images. They finished their day with a reception at the Opern Palais.  Sadly this gorgeous place is now closed – the interior (featured in many of the images) is stunning with its many opulent chandeliers and grand staircase.  After amazing food, speeches, games and lots and lots of dancing, the three of us snuck out just after midnight to get a few extra images on the darkened streets of Berlin.  A tourist hub during the day, Unter den Linden is virtually deserted by this time and it became a stage where we could capture some final images of the two of them.
