Handmade wooden boats will make your wedding pictures timeless and are sublime and light, just as your day should be. Whether it's a woodstrip-canoe or a lightweight skin-on-frame boat in which the sun shines through it's covering, we'll provide you with your wedding canoe. Whether for the photo shoot or the way to the church or ballroom, we help you to realize your dream of a canoe wedding.


If so far only one of you knows of the enterprise, we also rent our boats very confidentially for wedding proposals. There is probably no lonelier and more romantic place than a wooden canoe on a lake.

Photo & Filmprojects

As long as your project doesn't involve the destruction of a canoe, we gladly lend our boats for photo and film recordings of all kinds.

Safety plays a big role on board. Since a lifejacket over the wedding dress, however, can be regarded as visually reprehensible, we provide always ready to use throwing line and life ring for the necessary security. Our lifeguard training also contributes to safety.


We are lifeguards (silver) and in possession of a current first aid training. We are also the owner of the European Paddle Pass Level 2.

In case you want to paddle yourself and have no paddling experience, we recommend a non-binding test drive in cozy clothes (see above)

Equipment in the boats:

- lifebuoy

- Throwing line

- First aid kit

- Spare paddle
