Daniel Christopher Bauer and Tyrone J Braganza, take us on a journey of their magical and extraordinary love story.
We kept bumping into each other at random places.
Each time we met, we couldn’t stop looking at each other and the chemistry was undeniable. Finally, we were on the same flight to Goa, and it was on this break that we spent a lot of time together and got to know each other well.
Daniel and Tyrone walk towards the Town Hall to take their vows.
Their first kiss as a married couple.
Daniel proposed to me at my workplace.
It was on the Adventure of the Seas cruise ship sailing from Fort Lauderdale, Florida to the Caribbean. On the second day of the cruise, he proposed after dinner over a glass of wine.
The couple cut a heart shape on a white table cloth and pass through it as part of the German tradition.

I envisioned the wedding completely differently.
Although I’ve been to Germany several times, I had never attended a wedding or visited the town that Danny [Daniel] comes from. The Town Hall that I initially thought was going to be like a sterile courtroom was actually a beautiful synagogue, the church which I assumed would be a tiny little chapel, was a stunning 20th-century one with stained glass and wooden pews. The reception blew my mind away—it was on the banks of the river Main in Frankfurt with the view of the skyline looming in the background.

The exchange of vows tugged my heartstrings.
This beautiful moment made me feel like I had an out-ofbody experience. “As we walked in to our favourite song Hallelujah by Tom O’Malley was sung in the background, my heart was pumping, and I was nervous! I felt all emotions in those moments as we exchanged our vows in front of our friends and family,” says Bauer.

Our advice: Keep calm—everything will happen as planned.
