‘We chose “Make You Feel My Love” by Bob Dylan, interpreted by Adele for my ‘walking down the aisle song’. It is a song that we both love. When we planned our wedding, we imagined how it would actually feel like to be there. This song brought together all our hopes and how we envisioned our emotions to be that day.
We were not following any rules. There was no wedding dance. I did not throw the bridal bouquet. Doing what felt right for us, was the only mantra we went for. For us it was important that the wedding would be a personal and intimate celebration to the fullest extent. Two friends held our ceremony in the garden of the hotel. The whole wedding weekend from Friday evening to Sunday afternoon took place at the chateau, outdoors, which made it very relaxing. We never left the hotel grounds. Overall, we wanted an elegant, but very uncomplicated weekend. Both of us hoped for our guests to relax and enjoy the weekend. Putting aside any pressure on ourselves was important. We were relaxed and extremely happy. Rather than being nervous, we were laughing all along.
We wanted our wedding to be a reflection of who we really are and of what we truly like. In every dish served, in every song played, we wanted our guests to feel “us” and for it all to make sense, but in a very unpretentious way.
A good photographer was probably the most important thing for us. We wanted natural pictures that would document the full weekend and capture the little things. Looking at the pictures now is almost like watching a movie, allowing us the relive the weekend. We absolutely adore the pictures and couldn’t be any happier with Chris’s work.’ Mia & Sebi
