About The Wedding

When we came up with the idea to photograph Angi’s and Adrian’s wedding in the Maldives in October, I didnt believed this would really going to be happen. But it happened and many weeks later we was on the way to the Maldives. Can you imagine my happiness? I seriously had to pinch myself over and over again. What an honor! Photographing a wedding in paradise – what a unique destination for a wedding. Beach, palm trees, tiffany blue water…

Arriving in the Maldives is different to any other destinations. Once out of the airplane the warm salty air sweps immediately around your face and gives you that unique holiday feeling! The TMA waterplanes are an adventure ride and flying over those spectacular atolls and islands is stunning. It is a paradise!

Arriving on the green Kuredu Island where our couple was staying for their holidays, I joined Angi at her Hair&Make-up appointment in the Duniyestra Spa. The ceremony was set to be for sunset, so we used the time to make some photos at the beach. A Dhoni gave us a ride over to a private sandy dream Island where the wedding took place. It was a small Island, just sand, where couples can get married away from other tourists. The wedding planning team of Kuredu did a fabulos job: It looked fantastic. Walking over flowers through palm leafs in the sand, the couple was accompanied by drums to the ceremony which was held under a white tent. The ceremony was very touching and moving, and many wonderful details made it unforgettable. Sadly the weather wasn’t on our side that day: shortly after the ceremony big black clouds showed up at the horizon moving very fast towards us. But even with raindrops, a wedding in the Maldives is just one of a kind, and let's be honest - rain brings luck.
