Zürich Wedding | Tanja + Tobias | Tara Lilly Photography
Tanja and Tobias had an intimate wedding, with friends and family travelling from all over the world to celebrate with them. The Ritterhaus and Stadthaus were beautiful locations for their Zürich Wedding.
It was love at first sight for Tanja and Tobias, and their Zürich Wedding was just as beautiful as their love story.

During June of 2015, Tanja went on a trip to Greece where she met Tobias’ best friend who introduced the two via Facebook. They connected instantly, and Tanja spent the rest of her vacation searching for stable Internet connection, so she could stay up talking to Tobias late into the night. After two days, they decided that Tobais would pick her up at the airport in Zürich when she returned home. After another two days, they decided that if they still felt this intense connection when they first saw each other, they would go for a Hollywood kiss.
They almost missed eachother at the aiport when Tanja’s flight was delayed, but eventually she made it through and there Tobias was, holding a rose, waiting for her. They went for that Hollywood kiss.
A couple of months later they moved in together, and 6 months later they decided to start a family.
“Although to other people this might have seemed risky and rushed in the beginning, I always knew we were doing the right thing for us. Because with him even my craziest ideas make perfect sense.”
Tanja and Tobais’ beautiful vintage styled wedding took place in Zürich at the Ritterhaus. When Tanja first saw the Ritterhaus, she fell in love with the ancient knight’s mansion on Lake Zurich, and the charming chapel right next to it. Even before they were engaged, she knew it was where she and Tobais would get married.
On the weekend of their wedding, after spending the evening together with their friends and families, Tanja and Tobias took their last glimpses of each other before spending the night apart. They got ready separately the next morning, and first saw each other at the Stadthaus (City Hall), where their civil wedding took place.
After the civil wedding, they had a small Apéro in the cloister next to the Stadthaus. They then took a boat ride to the Ritterhaus where they had coffee and cake, and a stunning wedding ceremony in the Chapel. Dinner was served in the Ritterhaus with amazing meat and wine, and then everybody kicked off their heels to party in the basement.
“The wedding was as unique, intense, and somewhat crazy, as the whole journey that led us there. To make a wedding work against all odds, all you need is unconditional love for each other and the best friends and families in the whole wide world.”
Here are some of our favourites from Tanja & Tobias’ Zürich wedding!
