Wedding Wednesday- Nadine and Sinan's Intimate Barn Wedding


We're thrilled to share with you two magical weddings today. Nadine and Sinan have been together for 8 years and live in Southern Germany. They share a love of traveling and had two beautiful weddings one in Seychelles (located in the Indian Ocean) and the second in Germany. 

 Tell us about the wedding?

We actually had two wedding ceremonies and the first one was at Seychelles, on Praslin Island at Raffles Seychelles, only us two and the photographer – it was a dream come true and the most relaxing wedding day ever!

The second one was with all our favourite people in the world and a friend of mine did the ceremony which was super personal and emotional and we just loved it. Two other friends played live music during the ceremony with 4 songs we chose. The first one was “drops of Jupiter” by Train, the others were “your song” by Elton John – “Stay with you” by John Legend and “Higher and Higher” by Jackie Wilson

The wedding was held in a remodeled old barn and was vintage styled with light colours, lots of eucalyptus with cream and light pink flowers.

There were lampions hanging from the ceiling and candles in the windows, old stone walls with an old wooden floor – just perfect!

Who was your wedding dress by? 

The wedding dress is from Katya Katya London and I chose it because when I wore it for the first time I felt so great. My mum and sister said I was glowing from the inside as soon as I wore the dress. It made me feel special because it is no ordinary wedding dress! Everyone who saw me in it, even the shop assistants said I looked like a greek goddess and that made me feel even more special.

I also wanted a dress that fitted our wedding at the beach in Seychelles and it was just perfect. It was so light with the soft tulle and flowed beautifully.

Which Rachel Simpson shoes did you pick and why?

I picked Cecilia because it fitted perfectly for our summer wedding and suited the style of my dress. The heel had the perfect height on which I could stand comfortably all day long.

Tell us about the BEST wedding moment?

My best friend made a “travel book” for us in which each guest designed a page about his/her/their most favourite travel destination to which they’ve been to with tips and stories about that place – this was the best surprise when they gave this book full of stories and love to us.


What was your first dance song?

We had a medley, first a slow waltz to Norah Jones “Come away with me” which faded into a mash-up of songs everybody knows and to which I and my husband had secretly learned a fun choreography with which we surprised our guest

What is your Top Tip for wedding planning, what brought everything together?

Make sure you start early enough!
