Step Into A Traditional German Wedding by Damara Moe Photogaphy

Have you ever wondered how they celebrate a wedding in Germany?  Well, you’re about to get a little peak. Damara Moe Photography sent to us this beautiful and traditional wedding all the way from the ancient town of Bad Iburg-Glane, Niedersachsen, Germany. We love the majestic stone walls, German architecture and the beautiful gardens all which made a picture perfect and nostalgic setting for this charming pink and white affair. It’s also wonderful to witness their traditional German wedding celebrations involving family, neighbours and close friends in the week leading up to their wedding day – lovely reminder of how old fashioned wedding traditions are still a romantic touch.Traditional Wedding Pink BouquetPink and White German WeddingTraditional German WeddingPink and White Wedding GroomTraditional German Wedding BridesmaidsTraditional German Wedding CarTraditional German Wedding StyleTraditional Wedding GermanyChurch Ceremony Page BoyGerman Wedding TraditionsTraditional German BridePink and White Wedding ColoursWedding Germany TraditionalTraditional German Wedding ReceptionGerman Wedding ReceptionTraditional German Wedding PartyGerman Wedding CelebrationsBad Iburg Germany WeddingPink and White Wedding BouquetTraditional German Wedding Couple

From the Photographer: This was a beautiful, modern/tradition German wedding. There was a week long of events and activities: the civil wedding, the polterei, the neighbours making the bough to cover the door of the wedding home and it all cumulated in the church wedding day. A gorgeous event full of so much tradition and love. The photographs were taken at a local church, manor, home and park. The reception venue was beautiful with old beams. The food was brought in with much clapping and singing from the guests…and the party went until 4:30 am!

      Thanks! From what I understand, this tradition is known as ‘Das Sägen.’ After the bride and groom leave the church, they face their first challenge as a couple and are blocked by a heavy log which they must saw through with a whipsaw. They must work together to cut this log which symbolizes the couple’s ability to solve problems together. It would also be quite entertaining for the guests I imagine! 🙂

    She’s not wearing a traditional German wedding dress. That’s a modern wedding dress. Not only did traditional german wedding dresses not look anything REMOTELY like that one, but they were also NEVER WHITE.

      Thanks Allison for your feedback. Whilst this lovely wedding may not be the ‘purest’ traditional German wedding it still includes elements of tradition and hence why we chose to name it as such. The photographer also mentions it’s blend of modern/tradition and I’m sure – as many people will agree – a beautiful way to incorporate the old with the new!
