Justin and Martina

Finally… the European wedding event of the year…

The lovely Martina and Justin were married in  Strassburg Castle near Klagenfurt in Austria last month.  The day was as romantic as it sounds… Although this couple have been together for ages, the love and romance is still very obvious…

A couple of quick shots of the two of them getting ready together…

and then off to Woertersee for a couple of pics by the water before flying off to the castle.  (Flying is not a typo.  We actually flew…)

so this is what awaited us on the way back to the Hotel.  I understood I was getting a lift with Justin and Martina to the castle… but literally…?

Yep.  Mountain climbing, photographing a castle wedding, a helicopter ride??  All part of the job…  Somebody pinch me!

So inside the courtyard the crowd was gathering, and listening to some fabulous Austrian music…

the guests wrote well wishes for the couple and attached them to balloons and sent them heavenwards…

then Justin and Maritnas friends played a little game with them… they made them dress up in alpine gear (including tandem ski’s) and enact a medical rescue.  It was fitting as both Justin and Martina are doctors…

oh and first they had to find the patient…

And this poor wounded fellow is Ashish.  (Hi Asish!) you may remember him as the handsome groom from a wedding I shoot early last year https://broderickphotography.wordpress.com/2008/04/01/scarlett-and-ashish-part-1/

so they had to stitch his leg wound together despite having ski mask and gloves on…

pefect execution… with a lot of laughing…!

then it was up to the reception… more music, great food and lots and lots of dancing…
