The story of Cordelia and Wataru is so special. When they told me about it, it felt like listening to someone reading a movie script. Let’s keep it short and please try no to cry (not yet).

In 2016 Cordelia decided to take three months unpaid leave from her job to travel all over Japan, by bicycle. In the last week of her travels, she stayed on Okinawa and this is where she met Wataru. In a bar. She was wearing the jersey of a Japanese football club saying the name Suzuki on the back and guess what… Wataru’s family name is Suzuki (now her’s as well). Jumping forward to February 2017 when we met to get to know each other and learn about their story they told us about their dream of moving to Japan first so Wataru can finish his studies and later opening up a restaurant, either on Okinawa or in Hamburg.

When we spoke about their ideas for their wedding day and about the why they loved my work, Cordelia replied this way: “I’ve been rummaging around on your page, when I have not come to the point, I could even marry myself, simply because your pictures and your way of photographing appealed so much to me. Your photos convey so much emotion and show the moments exactly how they feel and that’s what I like. No matter which photo series I have a look at, my eyes start tearing up. You manage to capture what makes up interpersonal relationships, in all the small details. This is really something special.”

I could tell you about all these things you will see on the photos, but just to have a look at them now and feel the South Seas inspired vibe of their wedding day in the Hamburg Beach Club “28 Grad”. Thanks to Imke Klie the ceremony was a great mixture of laughter, tearing up and lots of love. Just one more thing, the 40 people who had flown in from Japan definitely changed this from a wedding to a drinking party. So much fun. So so much fun.
