Denise & Thorsten
photographed by Kirsten Becken
Denise and Thorsten are a creative couple from Germany. They are both designers and we got on brilliantly from the very first point of contact. Denise is a graphic designer at onehalf and if anyone out there needs a new logo or a cool album cover (for example) then take a look.
Back to the wedding.
Back to the wedding.
The decor was a natural palette using brown glass, gold and feathers. When Densie shared her ideas with me I inwardly jumped through loops. It is rare that someone is happy to move away from traditional romantic colours. With Denise putting stuff together her end and me my end we often commented that it was unfortunate we couldn´t share a bottle of wine and work together.
Denise wore a dress made of a leather bodice with an ankle length skirt attached only at the front of the bodice. Sandals and a simple feather headdress completed her wedding dress. Thorsten also looked amazing in his pale blue suit and strippy tie.
Feathers and gold were a strong decorative element. The wedding cake made beautifully simple with minimal decoration looked amazing.
Kirsten Becken was the photographer and also the Wedding Planners saviour when it came to hanging many lines of feathers across the ceiling of the dance hall. Thank you so much Kirsten and also smiles to you for admitting that as did I we (for a short time) became addicted to the Bleubird Blog.

Paper named feathers across a large wooden door for a table plan. Candles in jars and feathers suspended on large wooden poles over the table created an intimate atmosphere in the evening.
Having a small wedding enabled us to create one long table which looked striking with the decor. Denise had made lovely hessian draw string bags to hold the favours. They were tied using grey leather as were the napkins.
I´am not a real fan of the tea lite. They don´t last and often blow out. I much prefer to use a chunky candle that will last all night long. Often when I go back to dismantle the next day I end up blowing them out. A wonderful wedding.
