Her photographer who was actually booked fell ill at short notice and so I stepped in for him. The reason was quite simple. Our camper. The colleague for whom I stood in for him lives on Norderney and the island is actually always fully booked. So it was very easy to arrive by camper and not have to worry about anything else. The call came on Wednesday and Thursday evening I was already sitting in the camper in direction Norderney. In the evening at 6 o’clock I drove about 4 hours, until I found a place for the night. That was also a good idea, because the next morning my camper annoyed me and I actually had to go to the garage – but luckily I was already within reach of the ferry at that time and would have somehow been able to get over there until the next noon. But my planned crossing at 1am didn’t work out and so I arrived with the last ferry at 5am. I searched quickly for my place and met one hour later with the two. It was really great to see how relaxed a bridal couple can be before a wedding. Unfortunately I had to decline their invitation for a drink before the wedding, the day had stressed me too much and I wanted to be fit for the next day.
So I got out a little earlier and explored the island around the wedding location. And what can I say – I was absolutely flattened. Norderney is actually not to describe. I have never seen such a fascinating landscape in my life. I will definitely come back here, whether for a wedding or a holiday – no matter what. It is worthwhile in any case and if it is only 5 hours.
The wedding itself was like the evening before. Very relaxed. I can only recommend it to everybody. Go out of your familiar surroundings for a few days. Take all your loved ones with you. Take a few days off, and as a highlight, a wedding to finish. The anticipation is increasing day by day and so is the relaxation factor. Not only do you spend a great day, but you have a unique experience.
