With temperatures up to 37°C the brass band really had a hard job: Marching and playing was severely aggravated by the traditional costumes. Where the man have to suffer under hats with eagle dawns, the women are sweating under long black skirts.

  1. Are there some more coming? I found your country wedding series very interesting – as a backup photographer you had the opportunity to take photos of the side scenes, it seems. And as so many times before you give us a really good impression of the atmosphere.

    Disclaimer: as a non-Bavarian German this is as exotic to my eyes as it might be to the eyes of any American/Australian/etc..

    1. My inventory of images that keep the guest’s privacy is running out – I have to ask the newly-weds to consent publication.
      But I had to grin about your remark re. the excotic-ness (or is it exoticity, akin to toxicity) of a Bavarian country wedding: You know, it’s this unique combination of laptop and lederhosen, of strict religiosity and FDP-voting (or the green party in the capital) that makes this state so interesting to live in. As long as you are not a “Zuagroasta”, an immigrant – which you can remain for lifetime even if the migration distance is only 40km.
