Polka Dot Bride Feature: Michael and Lara

One of my favourite Berlin weddings has been featured on Polka Dot Bride.  Michael, an Australian writer and director, and Lara, a German actress, have the sweetest love story that extends across continents.  

An excerpt from their story:

”We met at a cafe. A delightful French Bistro in Los Angeles. Lara worked there, I would go there to work on my screenplays. One day we met – sparks flew … It turned out we lived in apartment buildings right next door to each other. In fact, it turned out Lara was stealing my wireless internet for 8 months before we even met. Lara relocated to Berlin. We’d write each other long missives detailing our days – our love story developed here, thanks to modern technology and a commitment to stay in touch. And then, by chance I had to be in Berlin for business and … sparks flew again … Following a stint at the Cannes Film Festival, I had to be in Paris for two days. I took the bull by the horns, called Lara up and asked her to join me for a romantic escapade in Paris. We’ve been inseparable ever since. We were engaged a year later in St. Tropez. And married a year after that in Berlin on May 5, in Lara’s home town, surrounded by family and friends who had traveled the world to share the day with us.”  

To get the full story do jump over to Polka Dot Bride and give the post some love!

There were many beautiful images from the day, more than could be included in the feature so I’ve posted some more of my favourites here.
