Anne Louise and Neno have been a couple for 13 years - and this june they finally put a ring on it! And what a wedding it was!
It seemed as if Anne Louise and Neno stored away a little piece of their love every day during the past 13 years to release it all on their wedding day. No kiss was only for the cameras or the guests, for every kiss they went all in for the kiss' sake.
When they gave their speeches to each other, they didn't only speak about the roses of their relationship, they also talked about the pain and how much stronger it has made them.
An Adidas Kind of Wedding
Anne Louise and Neno share one big passion: Adidas. And sneakers, even though Adidas includes those.
A pre-wedding shoot we did was themed entirely like that:
That passion shone through in every part of the wedding - not meaning though, that they wore only Adidas clothes. It meant that the atmosphere of the whole wedding could be descibed as street and chill.
And then there were some Adidas elements of course. Obviously, there was no way Neno was not wearing Adidas sneakers - and of course, Anne Louise had a matching pair ready in her bag for the late hours.
And look at that wedding cake, very subtle decorated with three stripes. I wonder which company's branding that is?
The most badass, street wedding couple on the way to have some serious words with each other (aka I do)
Like the rest of the wedding, the structure of Anne Louise and Neno's wedding day was not focused on following tradition. They started the day together in their apartment, teasing each other for their nervousness. Then we walked to the townhall in Frederiksberg, where they would get married in front of their close family.
What a First Look!
Walking through Frederiksberg Garden, gathering curious glances and congratulations (a little early, as they weren't married yet at the time, obviously!)
Who said one can't kiss before the exchange of rings?
Every wedding should have a dog!
Urban Bridal Shoot in Frederiksberg
After some bubbles and a light lunch, we had the couple shoot simply by walking to the venue, where the real wedding celebrations would start. The route was about 2,7 km long and full of urban photo possibilities.
Feeling the relieve of both parts having said yes (and maybe feeling the impact of some bubbles as well), everyone was giddy and relaxed, which showed in the couple constantly teasing each other. For a photographer, there is no better way to capture the joy of a wedding day!
"This might be a crazy idea, but would you be okay with putting your feet into the water?" - "Yeah sure, why not?"

One of my favorite shots of this wedding!
Wedding Celebrations at Pumpestationen
From the outside, Pumpestationen is a very unlikely wedding venue. It's a red brick building covered in graffiti placed inbetween train tracks just outside of Copenhagen Centralstation. The building was once used as a workshop by DSB, the largest Danish train operating company. Now it is an insider tip if you want to rent a raw and urban place for your event.
With Anne Louise and Neno being all about street, sneakers and chill, this was just the perfect venue to top the general atmosphere and style of this wedding!
The ramp was super practical to get close up photos of people without them noticing. Like for example this one:
The photographer did not expect to get revenge-photographed, though!
The inside of Pumpestationen is even more atmospheric and stylish than the outside:
Apropos kisses and speeches - there were also tears:
Following a Danish tradition, where the couple has to kiss either standing on their chairs or under the table whenever the guests demand it - the second one is always particularly difficult to capture.
Every good wedding of course ends with dancing!
