An intimate ceremony in Gozo for Andrea & Ewald

June 24, 2017 10:30 am

Andrea and Ewald are both from Germany and chose Gozo for their destination wedding on the 11th May 2017.  It was a very simple and elegant affair where the normal services and routines were far from used.  After having been married before, the pair chose to have an intimate wedding with just the 2 of them as the main protagonists and 2 members of the I DO KNOT team as their witnesses.

The day before their big day, Andrea visited the nail salon where she had a manicure and nail polish to get her fingers sparkling ready for her wedding ring.

On the day Andrea and Ewald prepared themselves ready, Andrea applied her make up and styled her hair and they both wore matching outfits. Ewald wore royal navy satin trousers with a yellow beige coloured shirt and jacket whilst Andrea wore a yellow beige smock dress with a royal navy satin short jacket. They both looked very colour coordinated and made a sweet pair.

The couple arrived together at the ceremony venue and upon being greeted by the team from I DO KNOT and the photographer, the latter began capturing the start of their special day.  Once the pre-wedding photographs were taken we moved inside to finalise preparations before the start of the marriage ceremony.

Their service was held in the beautiful Santa Cecilia Medieval Chapel in Gozo, the oldest and only remaining Medieval Chapel on the island, which is nowadays no longer consecrated for religious services, therefore ideal for civil marriages. The Chapel is a small and intimate venue that has been beautifully restored very recently.

Upon the registrar table was a beautiful red rose bouquet encompassed in greenery of ferns with white baby breath and a few calla lilies, a large cream candle was placed besides it and burnt slowly through the service. The bride held a hand-tied bouquet of the same mix of flowers, simple yet stunning.

The service was very sweet with Ewald becoming slightly emotional whilst reading his vows, enhancing the love and passion felt of their day. After the exchange of rings they were pronounced Mr & Mrs and gave each other a very passionate kiss to seal the deal.

Throughout the service the photographer caught the matrimonial moments through his lens and then group photos were taken after. The newlyweds were extremely happy and looked amazing, they then travelled into Gozo to take some formal photographs.

They concluded their special day with an intimate lunch in a restaurant in Gozo where they celebrated their new matrimony with the volunteers of the Chapel.

From all the team at I DO KNOT, we would like to wish you a prosperous and fortunate future together.
