FREE WEDDING CEREMONY IN ZURICH
After having met this wonderful couple in the Ristorante Spiga near the central railway station in Zurich, I knew that I wanted to spend their big day together with them. The positive energy and anticipation the two radiated was just unbelievable. Fortunately, the two even ended up booking me for their free wedding ceremony :).
Often, travelling to a wedding photo shoot is connected with a long journey for me. In this case, I was really lucky, because my trip took only about 15 minutes (by tram). Getting ready of the bride took place in the elegant Hotel Widder in the old town of Zurich. I especially remembered how her three nicely smiling girlfriends helped her with putting on a beautiful dress.
The civil ceremony of the couple took place in the picturesque town house of Zurich, only a short walk away. After the emotional ceremony, the wedding guests surprised us with a beautiful “trellis” of soap bubbles. A very fitting symbol for this light-hearted day!
Couple photo shoot
In the following short, but very productive couple photo shoot, the aforementioned lightness was indeed omnipresent. With much fun and laughter we spent a wonderful time near the Hotel Storchen, where their free wedding ceremony was to take place.

Like the couple photo shoot, the free ceremony was accompanied by a relaxed and joyful atmosphere. I was very impressed by the individuality of the ceremony – especially I liked the “spice ritual” :).
Dinner at the Zunfthaus zur Waag
Another short walk away and a cosy romantic dinner table was already waiting for everybody. The cake with the motto “It’s written in the stars” on the top, embodied the spirit of this wedding in a very beautiful way, as it “oozed” warmth and individuality.
On a final note: gathering all the wedding guests around a single table was a wonderful idea – in this way, they were as close as possible to each other :).
