Want to know a little secret? We had such an amazing fun-filled time celebrating with the lovely Benita and Joachim on their wedding day that we pretty much just want to go back and live in Germany with them forever! Miss you guys! But it’s not entirely the end of the world, as they’ve promised to come out and visit us in NZ soon, right guys?!
It was July, a perfect summers day in Dusseldorf, Germany, when Benita and Joachim formally tied the knot amidst the stunning grounds of Gut Mydlinghoven, an epic mansion surrounded by what once was horse stables. Coralee hung out with Benita and the girls as they prepared themselves on-site, while Alex indulged himself, smoking cigars and drinking gazpacho with the boys at their home nearby. The boys transported themselves to the venue in style in a stunning Bentley GT and while Alex told them to take it easy so he could follow….he had no chance keeping up with Achim on the autobahn as the silver bullet sped off into the future. Lucky Alex had google maps and a German SIM card to guide him to the venue in one piece a good 20 minutes later!
Guests came from far and wide to be there for the day….Israel, Canada, all across Europe…..New Zealand too (that’s us!). It was truly a wedding that we will never forget. Benita looked AH-MAZING!….and Achim as sharp as ever too. We can only hope that these photographs reveal just a little of the awesomeness of these too. They are indeed some of the nicest, most fun, generous, partying souls that we’ve ever been blessed to meet.
As you can imagine, the wedding guests partied long into the night. So long in fact that we might have even set a personal best record for the longest we’ve ever danced away the night at a reception – but check out those dancing photos! It was indeed the party to end all parties!
So that’s that. One of the most epic weddings in history….EVER! Benita, Achim….we hope to see you in NZ soon. But rather than wait for you to come….we’ll get your little package of photographs in the post tomorrow just to tie you over until you do come and we can share high-fives and gazpacho for real. We’re honoured. Stoked. Over the moon. Cant thank you enough…..for having us there to celebrate with you both on your special day.
Lots of love,
