It's common practice to celebrate weddings in the bride's hometown but due to the fact that Ann-Kathrin's family moved several times during her childhood, there was no such place that she could accurately describe as her hometown, so together with fiance Paul, they decided to simple pick a beautiful place to hold their wedding. The weather in southern Europe - along with the good food and wine - was a very appealing factor, so it was they settled upon Mallorca. They loved the idea of being able to invite their friends and family along for a holiday in the sun - with a wedding as an added bonus!
Photographer MELANIE NEDELKO tells us, "Ann-Kathrin & Paul's wedding was more than I ever dreamt about as a wedding photographer. Not only because they got married on my favourite island of Mallorca but also because it was a small, intimate and emotional wedding. Their love story is as unique and special as their private celebration on the Balearic Islands was. Ann-Kathrin, born and raised in Germany, moved to Vienna to study at a university, where she met Paul - half Austrian and half American. Paul saw Ann-Kathrin for the first time at a typically Austrian tavern and the rest is history.

Their wedding took place in a beautiful little church of pilgrimage called ERMITA DE SANT HONORAT. As their wedding party consisted only of their closest friends and family members they didn't want to get married in a big austere church. Following a moving ceremony they held a small reception in front of the chapel with a spectacular view over the Balearic Islands, before progressing to CASAL SANTA EULALIA for an intimate dinner and celebration in the private gardens."
