Dreaming of a castle wedding? How about celebrating a castle wedding elopement in Germany?
Brides should feel like a princess on their wedding day, so what better way to elope to Germany and in a real castle which seems to have popped out of a fairy tale. Lichtenstein Castle is a romantic castle built by Count Wilhelm to pay homage to medieval times. Locals often refer to it as the “fairy-tale castle of Württemberg” or Neuschwansteins Little Brother, which references its similar appearance to the most famous castle in all of Germany…the one that inspired Disney’s Cinderella castle!
Celebrate your castle wedding elopement in Germany at an impressive location: perched on an 800 meters-high cliff just on the edge of the Swabian Alps, Liechtenstein Castle offers magnificent views of the surrounding landscape and the valley of the Echaz river. During the spring and summer, the surrounding landscape is green and lush. However, many of the visitors feel that Lichtenstein Castle is at its best in autumn when the surrounding hills and valleys, all filled with trees, turns a beautiful orange and yellow as the leaves begin to change.

Meet your elopement photographer in Germany
Hello, I am Koko.
I love the light. The authentic moments. Sometimes a dance in the wind. Sometimes a meaningful look that hits right in the heart. I love the movement and everything that surrounds it. My life is as colorful as I am. I was born in the former Yugoslavia. Sarajevo. On my journey of life I met different personalities and people. And people are also the ones who brought me to photography. As a photographer you have the world in front of your lens – I traveled to unique locations with unique couples – have been to Spain, Italy, the Arab Emirates and have shot in the Maldives and the Seychelles. If I had to describe my style, it would be a mix of editorial and motion. In the movement and the authentic and unposed moments lies the true language of photography, as I see it.
