Wedding photography is a mixture of documentary and editorial approaches, when most pictures are taken spontaneously (except for the formal portraits), but in the most beautiful reality. Even if you don't hire wedding designers and stylists, lots of thought will be put into every little detail how to make your wedding a beautiful and at the same time meaningful event that will reflect of who you are as a couple. There are still some things, often overlooked, that can, from my point of view, either spoil or make the pictures outstanding. First of all, let's think, what do we love about pictures?

Emotions

Your wedding day will be full of them, so we don't need to worry here. (Speaking about emotions and ways of expressing them ... some makeup and hair stylists aim at making your wedding looks last forever ... despite of possible tears :) ... adding lots of long-lasting makeup and hair sprays, I would recommend to avoid it, except maybe for a waterproof mascara. Don't forget that this is the day on which you want to look the most beautiful in the most natural sense.

Composition

This is the task of the wedding photographer, who will frame the pictures nicely intuitively, as everything will happen quickly with no time to think how to apply the composition rules. Trust your photographer (and hire the one, whose style and aesthetics views inspire you).

Location

Every wedding location, being it a historic church or a villa at the lake, has its own special beautiful features, make them present in the whole concept of your wedding, use them. While selecting the venues, think also of the wedding timeline, make sure that the open air ceremony is not held at midday when sun is at its highest point thus creating strong contrast and shadows.

Details

Weddings are all about details, it might be a veil or antique brooch that has been in the family for generations, elements of the cake decor, flower girl accessoires - there is always something special. And this is what transforms a nice event into an unforgettable one.  Add special touches to show your own personal wedding style. Pick songs for the ceremony that are meaningful for you, write your own wedding vows, make the menu based on your favourite food. Rent a beautiful oldtimer or a boat and decorate with flowers (and "Just married" sign! :). Decorate your exit from the church (civil registration office, etc) with flower confetti - there is no more beautiful way to make your ceremony pictures unforgettable than the shower of gorgeous flower petals, they are extremely photogenic! Repetition is key in creating a cohesive design, even a few properly placed items, in perfectly repetitive harmony, can make a huge visual impact.

Stationary

When it comes to invitations and other wedding paper goods, less is really more, don't make it look complicated, try to not incorporate too many details into the design. I can highly recommend you Letterpress Manufaktur MiliaInk https://www.instagram.com/milia_ink/

Please, please don't forget to indicate in your invitations the dress-code: "white-tie", "black-tie", "festive attire", "festlich elegant". Don't be shy to ask your guests to dress up, it's just a formality (though tuxedos, floor-length evening gowns or festive cocktail dresses will definitely do give a nice flair to the pictures!)

Flowers

Add personal touches to your flowers - whether it's the feeling of your childhood home or a place you stayed and loved - jasmine vines, garden roses, the lilac in your schoolyard or clematis in the grandmother's garden. Loose shapes and soft feminine colours tied with velvet ribbon for a soft touch.

Getting ready 

The most important thing is you look like yourself, let the beauty you possess shine through by highlighting your best features. Avoid trying a completely different look or heavier makeup, keep it simple. Some muah artists think of weddings as long hours performances and prepare the brides like actresses for the stage - lots of long holding hairsprays, several layers of waterproof foundations and heavy eyelashes - so that a person sitting in the last raw in the church will be able to see you ... what about the person who will spend this Day closest to you, will he enjoy this dramatic appearnce? :)

Bride's dressing room can be a part of the hotel or your home. It certainly always helps if the room is beautiful in terms of interior and light, but in any case I would recommend to remove everything that clutters the space - unnecessary pieces of furniture, clothes and hangers, empty bags etc. The wedding dress deserves its own portrait as well as the shoes, the rings and the flowers (ask the florist to send all your wedding flowers to you in the morning), put aside the wedding invitations. I will take pictures of these beautiful details, have some shots of you and your bridesmaids doing your hair and makeup and document the whole atmosphere of the getting ready time, with all the family and close friends, who either with you in the room the whole time or visit you from time to time in anticipation of the coming ceremony.

During the preparation, there should be also some time dedicated just for you alone. How often do you hire a hair stylist, a makeup artist and a photographer? Even if you are shy in front of the camera, just trust the professionals and you will see beautiful portraits of yourself afterwards. For the boudoir shots I would recommend to have an "in-between" version of hair and makeup.

After taking boudoir shots, I will go to the Groom's dressing room and then come back to the Bride to document the moment of putting on the dress. I would recommend to ask your mom or bridesmaids (with the hair done and dressed beforehand) to participate in this shot.

Civil wedding ceremony

Choose an alternative place to register your marriage, there are lots of stunning authentic locations that will make you feel a part of Swiss history. 

The Zunfthaus zur Waag (the guild house of linen weavers) built in 1287 is one of four licensed wedding venues in Zurich. You can set your wedding date and make a booking at the Registry Office, Zurich Town Hall. 

 

Portraitsaal in Rathaus of Lucerne is one of the most beautiful places to register the marriage in the whole Switzerland.

Outdoor celebration

Outdoor weddings always have a very special ambience. They are beautifully intimate with warm and welcoming feel, they are about bringing your favourite people, sharing your favourite food and celebrating till the dawn under fabulous lanterns. Think of a big farm table adorned with rustic benches, beautiful fabric, antique cutlery, a handwritten or letter-pressed menu, timeless place-card holders that will rise the style.

Indoor celebration

Sometimes you hardly have freedom to express yourself celebrating indoors, you can do something about flower arrangements, chairs perhaps and paper goods (menus and escort cards), the chairs can transform the whole look of the space into something elegant and refined. Match your chair treatments to your wedding style. Consider decorating hairbacks with flowers.

Trendy and Minimalist weddings

Despite some kind of traditions, not every couple strives for inviting dozens of guests or only intimate friends to an over-the-top wedding show. In case you are a bride who dreams of a careless wedding planning which doesn`t take a lot of time (though the celebration will be elegant, up-to-date and chic), it makes sense reflecting on the minimalist trend.

The minimalist way of life is all about living a clutter-free life, possessing only those things which are significant and useful to you. That is the major reason why the minimalist weddings we may know and actually desire are described as modest, with clean decor and an impeccable atmosphere which concentrates on plainness. For you to be prepared, we’ve assembled 5 ideas for a minimalist wedding which will cover the majority of the details of the whole wedding theme styling.

1. Wedding Invitations

Every couple is aware of that wedding cards are of utmost importance for the earliest positive emotions you`ll get from the guests. There is no necessity for a pretentious presentation. First and foremost, introduce guests to the wedding theme by persisting in being classic. For instance, use only a handwritten stationery suite of one colour.

2. Natural Table Settings

Remember that the minimalist way of living suggests us making good use of space. Thereby make it possible for guests to sit at longer tables so that you will avoid a constrained atmosphere. Neatly decorate tables with white linen and geometrical crockery.

3. Industrial Minimalist Centrepieces

Designers recommend couples to try out different themes. For example, industrial minimalism lets out gentle country accents, while still caring for the modernity of your minimalist wedding.

4. Wedding Cake

Although several years ago a classic all-white wedding cake may seem too plain and even old-fashioned, nowadays it`s a great trend in the minimalistic wedding world. New techniques and cake-decoration stuff are exquisite. What is more, for styling purposes, concentrate on where and how the cake stands instead of trying your best to find lots of unnecessary decorations. One can just attach several dried leaves for a tone of colour.

5. Food and drink stations

You`d better focus on the presentation of the dishes you`d chosen rather than the decor. Uncomplicated adornments such as plants are the ideal organic embellishment.

Best Wedding Invitation Ideas

A wedding is accepted to be one of the most decisive and indispensable days during the whole life for a couple. It consists of many details. The wedding stationery sets the stage for a lot of components of the couple`s great day. First of all, these are style and the theme. In this context, it’s indispensable to ascertain that such elements are as remarkable as possible.

After nailing the impeccable invitation phrasing, it’s time to assure you have the appropriate design to fit. Beyond doubt, remember the theme you`d chosen, however, try to think outside the box and select a styling which expresses your inner world ideally. Eventually, there is only one chance to make the first impression. Surprise the guests with one of the marvellous wedding invitation ideas below.

1. Stay minimalistic

Both a trend and a comfortable way of arranging the wedding is elegant minimalism in everything. No need to overreach your wedding invitations with deliberate details. Keep it minimalistic and simple by concentrating on a monochrome design that provides you with charming typography.

2. Draw Your Love

One of the most delightful things for guests to receive is an individual illustration of you and your partner on your wedding invitations. This way the quests may feel cohesion with the couple. From plain vectors to hand-drawn sketches, pick an illustration design which portrays you as a future family.

3. Express it with flowers

It cannot be denied that flowers are an element of the wedding decoration which never goes out of style, regardless of the season you`re becoming a husband and a wife. Anytime a classy choice, adorn the invitation cards with sophisticated floral ornaments.

4. Share a feeling of tropical vibes

Impart your wedding stationery the tropic spirit of the rainforest. This way is perfect for those brides who strives a seaside or outdoor reception. Think of including different rather minimalistic greens and plants in the design to make it clear for the guests what your wedding theme is going to look like.

5. ‘Tag’ your guests

Instead of sending out invites that will just end off getting kept in reserve or thrown away, attempt to create the invitation your family members and intimate friends will be able to reuse. These may be luggage tags or other exciting interpretation of typical invitations.

Zürich in einem gezielten Fotografenobjektiv

Waren Sie schon mal in Zürich? Wenn nicht, dann ist es wert die Scharte auszuwetzen und schon in naher Zukunft diese wunderschöne und wirklich attraktive Stadt zu besuchen. Im Nordosten der Schweiz gelegen, ist es der Ort, an dem Sie als Urlauber und gleichzeitig Fotograf arbeiten können. Aber die Hauptsache ist, dass man hier nicht nur einzigartige Fotos machen kann, sondern diese Fähigkeit auch auf höchstem Niveau schärfen kann. In den Augen der Besucher wirkt Zürich wie eine Perle auf dem Hintergrund der niedrigen Berge und des Zürichsees, die nicht ohne Aufmerksamkeit zurückgelassen werden kann und die man nicht vergessen kann.

Dieser Aussage wird auch jeder Fotograf in Zürich, der aus erster Hand von seinen unvergleichlichen Ansichten und atemberaubenden Aussichten weiß, zustimmen. In der Tat gibt es neben dem Weltzentrum für Finanzen und Bankwesen viele malerische und magische Orte, die selbst nach Filmen „fragen“. Was wert sind nur der Fluss Limmat, Altstadt und St. Peter Kirche, die fähig sind, luxuriöse und unvorstellbare Aufnahmen für jede Sammlung zu geben. Nicht umsonst assoziieren viele Fotografen Zürich mit magischem Mekka, wo solche Handwerker immer ein Geschäft haben.

Die richtige Zeit für geschickte Experimente mit Technik

Und in solchen „Übungen“ ist es nicht so wichtig, welche Art von Kameras Sie verwenden, ob modern oder etwas veraltet. Fast jede Optik wird das Ergebnis liefern, worauf die fotografierende Person hofft. Und wenn Sie die relevanten Fähigkeiten des Meisters hinzufügen, dann wird die resultierende Symbiose mit Sicherheit die Erwartungen übertreffen. Für den Fotografen bleibt das Credo des Berufs unverändert: sich nach der höchsten Qualität der Aufnahme zu streben und deshalb nach einzigartigen und schönen Bildern, die fähig sind, neue Gipfel in dem gewählten Gebiet zu „erobern“. Komfortables Zürich wie kein Zweiter bietet alle Möglichkeiten, mit Zeichnungen zu improvisieren, mehr Details zu erzielen und den Schärfenbereich zu reduzieren. Eine ganze Menge von historischen und kulturellen Sehenswürdigkeiten, ergänzt durch natürliche Gebiete, wird helfen, die Fähigkeiten eines echten Profis zu verbessern. Für Liebhaber von Panoramaaufnahmen sind der Utliberg und der Aussichtspunkt Lindenhof genau richtig. Von diesen Orten aus haben Sie eine atemberaubende Aussicht auf die Umgebung, die dem Objektiv jedes Fotografen würdig ist.

Fewer Efforts, More Elegance: Minimalist Wedding of Your Dream

Fewer Efforts, More Elegance: Minimalist Wedding of Your Dream

Every couple going through wedding preparation knows that planning is likely to be tense as there are so many details and decor elements. However, why not make it simple? Nowadays, minimalism is well-known as a major wedding trend. The secret of its fame: there is beauty in simplicity. In spite of every bride may think that for one of the most significant days of her life she needs overloaded centrepieces and lots of layers of linens for the appropriate table settings, one can find out so much to be mentioned about the minimal touch.

Undoubtedly, during the ceremony, a minimalist style draws the attention of the guests just where it should be — on the bride and groom. In reception, it provides a possibility for the natural beauty and amazing light of the venue to shine as never. Regrettably, the minimalistic style is frequently interpreted as removing all the details. Nevertheless, the major purpose makes it clear that they can seem intentional and ostentatious. Without the fuss, there is nothing to divert from the details that do stay, allowing them to stand out as central elements and making them more valuable. 

To make the wedding minimalistic but still diverse one should use:

Geometrical plate ware to enjoy the dishes not only because of the taste but due to the fact how the whole thing looks like;

A hexagon-shaped two-tiered cake with stylish contemporary marble print on it;

One type of flower. It`s eye-catching and fashionable.

It`s also worth mentioning that a minimalist wedding is usually being represented in several common styles. It`s advised by designers not to combine them without the recommendations of specialists. Firstly, there is organic minimalism, focusing attention on a lot of white with accents of juicy greenness, and there is also industrial minimalism, where urban design meets rural. Furthermore, designers pop out modern minimalism which is keen on playing up shapes and geometry. Romantic minimalism, with airy linen or refined calligraphy, befits genuine romantics. One should admit, the minimalist style tends toward a neutral palette for a mild and aerial look.
