Monastic: The last Autumn Wedding

Kloster Lorch

Kloster Lorch

Ok, so the couple were obviously not monks, but the setting was a Monastery, set high up on a hill in Lorch.

The couple was also my sister-in-law and her husband who were already officially married, but, as is common in Germany they also married in a church, or in this case, a monastery.

Lorch is in Schwäbisch Gmünd, kind of in the middle of nowhere, but that’s what makes it so spectacular. From atop the hill, the view is beautiful and unobstructed and the monastery grounds are lovely. There is an animal enclosure as well as a herb garden and inside the buildings there is a museum, mural and a Refectory.

With such a perfect setting, the day could only run smoothly. The rain stayed away, the sun shone and we partied through the night. I can only hope that we find our own special and beautiful location when the time comes!
