Shots from the wedding of the lovely Tahar & Laura. The day started with a ceremony at the Rathaus Schönberg, followed by portraits in der Nahe von graffiti and down by the river, before the reception at the Spreespeicher, also riverside.

It's always a privilege (and a lot of fun) to photograph a wedding, and Tahar and Laura's celebration was no different in that respect. But - and I think if I understood him correctly the father of the bride touched on this in his speech - because of who they are, because of the diverse mix of cultures present at their wedding (German, Turkish, Tunisian, French, Austrian, Egyptian, to name a few), and because of what has been happening this year at Europe's borders, their wedding felt special in another way too. 

As they and their families have big, open hearts, I think I can say that their wedding felt like not only a celebration of love, but also of a wider embrace, inclusiveness and diversity, and that was a fine thing to be a part of.
