Meet Mr and Mrs Tokita who got married in Rapperswil Castle. They are both from Japan but currently living in Switzerland for a few months. It was a very small wedding – in fact it was only the two of them.
They got ready at Hotel Schwanen together. When I arrived they were almost already done so we started with some portraits around Rapperswil. At the wedding day there was a fleamarket on the street so there were lots of people around which made it more fun. Lots of people greeted them. We walked by the lake of Rapperswil at first and then made our way towards Rapperswil Castle. They had a civil ceremony in German which was almost simultaneously translated to Japanese. After the ceremony they had a small apero inside the Castle. We then wrapped it up by taking some more portraits outside the castle.
The castle is a really great place to get married – especially since their outdoor area is covered by a special roof. This roof creates perfect light for photography! It also of course allow people to sit outdoors no matter what the weather is.
Anyway, here are the wedding photos from Rapperswil….
