Hello OMG readers! Today’s feature is brought to you by OMG sponsor Jonny Donovan photography and captured on film by Living Cinema, and it’s a goodie. Bride Geraldine and her groom Felix, chose to get married in Switzerland last year in a beautiful ceremony at Church Santi Pietro followed by a rustic chic reception on Lake Maggiore on Brissago Island. The church dates back to the 13th century and is pretty incredible. Following the ceremony, the wedding party was greeted by the Treme Brass Band who were waiting outside and escorted everyone to the party. If that’s not romantic enough, let me tell you a bit about how the two met…
Geraldine was based in the UK as an exchange student from Brussels and worked at a pub around the corner from where Felix lived. Felix, who is a singer in a band (omg love musicians!) popped into the pub on his night off and claimed he knew from that night the two would be married. *sigh* The two got together and a few years later, Felix FLEW TO BANGKOK to ask Geraldine’s father for her hand in marriage IN PERSON. Less than 24 hours later, he hopped back on a plane and met his soon to be wife in New Orleans for a trip they had planned earlier that year and proposed on the Mississippi river at sunset. *cue goosegumps*
Geraldine wore a beautiful dress by Pronovias, accented perfectly with luxe Jimmy Choos while her bridesmaids looked beautiful in Alfred Sung dresses to held her down their aisle.
AND, as if we didn’t love this groom enough already, apparently he did most of the organisation! Geraldine says “Although I had a very clear vision of what I wanted our wedding to be like, it was Felix who did most of the wedding planning and organising and it was Sebastian Rogalla and Tatjana Meier at the Hotel Eden Roc who were responsible for the execution. I got very emotional when I arrived on the island and saw the attention that had been paid to every last detail in order to ensure the wedding was everything I had ever wished for.” Love it.
And last but not least, a beautiful film from Living Cinema
