But now back to Martina and Manuel. After the ceremony in the church in Jonah the newlyweds their numerous guests invited to a drinks reception at the church. The weather could not be better - it was really hot summer in early August. Therefore, it is hardly surprising that many guests were shady places under the Sonnenschrimen. Cooling promised then the subsequent trip on the boat from which the couple does not know yet. And they had to earn the two. Especially Manuel, this had to work. Because first needed / he was allowed to drive Martina in a rickshaw to the boat harbor. Of course, even that one or the other have waited for the two on the way there.
On the one hand there is always something to photograph for me a strange feeling when people cry. Because this is a very intimate moment well for all of mother of the wedding sexy dress.

Finally, there is always the moment when looks are a married couple for the first time. And why should we not allowed to take photos on this emotional and absolutely unique moment? Finally, it is an absolute key moment when Man (n) for the first time see his bride or groom.
