Would you trust your friends to organise your wedding? That’s exactly what tattooed bride Lisa and husband Danny did after exchanging their official vows – and it looked like they did a fantastic job! Their celebrations took place in their back garden with Timo Raab Fotographie there to capture it all.
We both worked in Fuerteventura on the Canarian Islands as entertainers of the German tour operators TUI and Alltours. Our hotels were side by side and one day my entertainment team needed some stuff that we didn’t have, for performing a comedy show. So it was to us to get those things, it was some masks to cover our faces while preparing a new comedy scene, from another entertainment team around our hotel… So I went off to check if the team of the hotel next to us could help us. When I arrived at the entrance, Danny just entered the hotel with his colleague. I asked him if he was an entertainer in that hotel and he affirmed it. So he gave us a chicken mask and one of a biddy and I hurried up to get back in my hotel… When I entered Danny’s hotel the following day to bring the masks back, he stood right in front of me, wearing a pink body and a white tutu. Unfortunately we couldn’t talk that long, because he had to welcome the new guests… But we already met the same night at our local pub while playing darts. And it didn’t take much time until we had our first kiss…
Yes we do! After 4 months we started working together in the same hotel, still on the Canarian Islands, Lanzarote now, to check out if we wanna stay together… And after just two weeks, after we moved to Lanzarote we saw a shop of a German tattoo artist, who already had tattooed people in almost the whole world…. That is when got our couples tattoo which says “Me encanta que te amo” – I love to love you…
We didn’t have typical DIY elements to our wedding… It was more like that we created and designed our own label and a stamp which said “We love having you here”. We prepared a candy bar and little bags with that stamp on it for our guests.
After the official wedding in the town hall of Schöllkrippen, where we met the first time looking at each other in my wonderful dress and his awesome suit, we had a marriage ceremony in our garden organized by our friends. They prepared georgous things, like a singer who sang our love song, a picture with the fingerprints of all guests and they had wonderful things to say… I think all those fantastic words of the people who spoke to us were probably the highlight of our wedding day
We printed some stickers with our own label, which says: Alles Juth! – In Cologne, where Danny is from, the people say it. It means: Everything is good – and Juth is our last name… A wonderful device
Of course I wanted my tattoos to be seen, so I searched for an armless one. And then I just tried one after the other till I felt in love with mine.
How awesome is Lisa and Danny’s wedding?! Thank you to them both and to Timo Raab Fotographie for sharing their day with Marry Me Ink.
