Singing and dancing at this circus-inspired German wedding

gurety-15

Anneke and Michael's wedding in Lüneburg, Germany had a traditional ceremony, a second outdoor ceremony, and a fun, carnvial-esque reception. The bride wore a dress handmade by one of her best friends. The first ceremony was held in a medieval watertower, and afterwards the pair bicycled to the outdoor reception where the second ceremony took place. There were personal speeches and lots of singing and dancing before a heavy rain shower moved everyone into a tent to continue the festivities. Also awesome: the bride kept her name and the groom hyphenated his! Heiko Schmidt captured the day and was kind enough to share it with us.
