Every girl dreams of her wedding day; being a beautiful princess, marrying the man of her dreams.
When Mr Romantique and I got engaged 10 months ago, we always knew that we wanted a small, intimate wedding, attended only by immediate family. And so it was; a small wonderful wedding of 15, in the heart of my home city Berlin, almost a month ago.The wedding venue Ermelerhaus, a historic, roccoco Patrician villa, is located just next door to the Australian Embassy. If this isn’t fate I don’t know what is!On the day, everything fell into place magically and I could not have been happier with the decor, flowers, cake, and weather. To illustrate the union of a German gal with an Aussie boy, we decorated the car with a German/ Australian flag adorned with small little flowers. The gingerbread hearts had the names of the guests written in icing and served as place mats and decor. Thanks to Rebel, we incorporated the cute German wedding tradition of cutting a heart out of a bed sheet with nail scissors.
I always thought its a bit cheesy when people say that the wedding day is “the most beautiful day of your life”. Now I can say, it really is incredible. Promising to stay with your love forever, through good times and bad, witnessed by loving family who have travelled from near and very far. A perfect day just like I always dreamed.
What I wore: Wedding dress from Jcrew ‘Roseblooom adorned with fabric roses. I had the dress shortened from tea length to knee length to make it look more 50s Audrey Hepburn like. Kittenheeled shoes with gingham vichy checks from Marc Jacobs. Lilly of the valley earrings from Les Nereides. Sunglasses from Celine.
