Hello and welcome to Winter + Cordula’s Heidelberg Castle wedding. I met Winter and Cordula in Athens during their short visit in 2017 when Winter decided to propose to Cordula. Eventually I got invited to photograph their wedding which I really loved! This is their love story, their wonderful Heidelberg Castle wedding!
Winter came from the United States to work in Germany where he met Cordula! Together they started travelling as much as possible before finding their way to Athens, Greece. Winter reached out to me with his plan to propose to Cordula during their time in Athens. It was a great time for them and I, and I was super thankful to be a part of that moment in their life! The pictures came out great. Cordula and Winter loved every moment. It was a surprise but also a joy to have Winter and Cordula ask me to be their wedding photographer in Heidelberg, Germany. What an honor!
Heidelberg Castle wedding details
Cordula tried to make everything perfect. The decision to hold the wedding at Heidelberg Castle was an easy one, as both of them enjoy the history and architecture of this area. To have your wedding in a castle is pure magic, let alone Heidelberg Castle which is a wonderful historic site. The colors of the wedding matched the pale pink of the castle. Cream, gold, pale pink and burgundy, magical! Cordula got so emotional when she first saw her wedding dress she cried!
The wedding was a mixture of great history and the get-together of two families. Both groomsmen and bridesmaids met and got ready at a nearby hotel with a great view of the castle and Heidelberg city from above. The guests gathered at the courtyard area of the castle, where a violin quartet kept the wedding guests entertained before and throughout the ceremony at the castle chaple in the Friedrich building. The wedding party then moved on to the grand balcony for the cocktail reception and took in some of the most breathtaking views of Heidelberg city.
As we were getting close to sunset Cordula remembered the most beautiful memory of their wedding “the perfect light during our kiss photo above Heidelberg”. Winter and Cordula treated their guests to a one Michelin star wedding day menu and a crazy party in the Ott-Heinrich’s building till the morning hours.
To all the future Heidelberg Castle wedding brides and grooms, our bride Cordula had the following to say “Make sure you are comfortable. Enjoy yourself and that day as much as you possibly can!”
