Wedding session in Iceland - Kerlingarfjoll

Love session on Iceland

This entry has matured in our minds for several months. About Iceland has already been described so much in word and picture that it's easy to be banal, superficial or schematic. And this is a place so unusual, so beautiful in its majesty of nature, that we can talk about Iceland briefly or briefly, we simply can't (yes, it will be a long entry). There are several reasons, but they all converge on one point, which is - sentiment.

It was our first wedding ceremony in Iceland, but not the first one with it. A trip to the land of ice and fire is both our and our pair's sentimental journey. We met and loved the wonderful island almost 5 years ago, we spent 10 days in tents there, in the warmest period of the year, soaking in the enormity of beauty with a beating heart. Iceland was becoming more and more popular, and it didn't take long before the real boom for Icelandic wedding sessions began. Did it surprise us? After what we saw with our own eyes - absolutely not!

At a similar time, for the first time Iceland was seen and loved by Julka and Krzyś. They explored it more accurately, spending a month on the island. And during this trip, they made one of the most important life decisions. It was there that Krzyś proposed to Julia.

So when we talked about where they would like to carry out their wedding session, there were a few ideas. However, with the slogan Iceland - all four of us got warmer at heart.

It was not just one of many trips to a foreign session. It was a real journey straight to the heart of Iceland. Because there was no such Icelandic session;)

Session in highlands of Icealand - Kerlingarfjoll

You probably know dozens of photos from Iceland that are close to each other. And we are not talking about locations here, because this island is not especially big, and the most popular places are so beautiful that everyone wants to keep part of them in the heart and in photographs. We mean the way it is shown, the flood of muted and gloomy, nostalgic and gloomy images. And you know what? We have wondered many times, is this a fashion result? A kind of manner in which Iceland was imprisoned? Or maybe completely different than most we are extremely lucky with the weather?

We remembered her completely differently. With inconceivable intensity, contrast and purity of colors. With unprecedented transparency of the landscape. With lush greenery, even if there were fogs. Filleted areas covered with moss, not yet dry, and then softly collapsing under the pressure of bare feet.

Naturally, Iceland is weather-variable. And we remember all the material that we brought from the first trip, was somewhat an impulse to how we perceive colors and graphic processing of photos today. Intuition told us that too much interference would spoil all this overpowering beauty - the work of nature. Why are we writing about this? Because with us you will not see gray-gray and subdued Iceland. Even in her natural cycle: sun, rain, wind, clouds, sun, wind, fog and in a moment from scratch - we will not deprive her of colors.

This was also the dream of Julia and Krzyś. That this is not another, similar to many sessions in Iceland.

Can you imagine the most spectacular display of painting color variations from straw yellow to rusty almost red orange ?! It's Iceland and more. Her heart is the same - say the locals, Kerlingarfjoll and Landmannalaugar in Interie. These places were our main goal of wedding photos.

Wedding photography Iceland

Journey into the interior, to the heart, takes time. It also requires admission. And proper preparation. We could not have wished for a better pair for this plein air. Julia and Krzys were fantastically prepared, as they spent a month in Iceland, they knew the conditions perfectly. Properly adapted car, warm clothing, good footwear, food supply. The expedition into the depths is no longer passing the "Golden Circle", but a much more logistical undertaking. In addition, or maybe above all, a couple of people who love traveling, so the passion and commitment to this adventure was in them at 200%. Julia is great at photographing, we love the pictures she just brought from Nepal. With people like them on your way, you can fulfill all your photographic ambitions.

Black sand beach vik & Skogafoss session

Iceland's landscapes are overwhelmingly beautiful and monumental, man here gives way to nature. Glaciers, waterfalls, volcanic beaches, geysers - all this intertwines and impresses, making it possible to shoot endlessly. We divided the wedding session into two days of shooting. Our goal was Kerlingarfjoll and Landmannalaugar in the interior, and to get there you need at least 8 hours of driving inland of the island.

However, we could not miss the introduction, which was the more accessible region of Iceland. The first stop was one of the most beautiful waterfalls on the island - the famous Skogafoss. In light rain we also walked to the viewpoint with the flowing down Solheimajokull glacier. It's probably the most easily accessible tongue of the glacier in Iceland. Just slightly off the road to stand face to face with the head of the glacier after a few minutes. It was the only capricious weather moment during the session.

We like to stop spontaneously while photographing, let the impulse decide the direction of the session. Sticking to a rigid plan has never matched the style of our work.

Another longer stop was the scenery of rocks and volcanic sand or Reynishverfi - the black beach in Vik. Perhaps the most impressive there is the basalt cliff stretching at its northern end. Gardar or rock wall resembles huge, natural organs. These powerful columns are very crowded with tourists. However, as it happens in most places - the young couple has priority. Being on the black beach you cannot miss the small basalt cave with a beautiful ceiling. This is another fairy-tale ingredient that adds charm to Reynisfjarze. Drone shots also helped us to show the amazing atmosphere of the black beach. During this session we started it definitely the most often.

Wedding session Kerlingarfjoll i Landmannalaugar - colors of Iceland

What Iceland has the most beautiful to show starts where the asphalt ends and the road number gets the letter "F" as "fabulous". The landscape was lunar in many places along the way. Gravel-sand surface, places brownish reddish as on Mars, dust rising with every gust of wind and an endless horizon. After many hours of road, a fairly monotonous stone desert, an unimaginable reward awaits.

Kerlingarfjoll - sounds like a spell, it is a beautiful mountain range. It is an explosion of colors and structures, unreal even in the bright sun. From among the picturesque peaks, water vapor escaped from the inside of the earth. It is smoking fumarole and sulfatars that make this landscape, apart from the breathtaking colors, dramatic and mysterious. The culmination is huge snow hats cuddled to the colorful mountains. This is definitely a place that will be seen with you forever.

However, don't be fooled by this fairy-tale color feria. Interior is known for difficult conditions, such as very strong winds. As a result, the perceived temperature is much lower. Already after we go down the stairs, straight to the main geothermal area, lying just between the colorful mountains of the massif - the wind calms down a bit.

The second wonderful place is the more famous Landmannalaugar - called the rainbow mountains. It consists of a rhyolite - a rock that creates a full spectrum of dazzling color on the mountainside. Shades of red, green, golden yellow and even pink change their tone as if imitating the movement of the sun's rays. It's hard to describe in words.

Interior is the experience of a huge space. It is a landscape so colorfully saturated and diverse, which does not resemble any place on earth. It is hard to imagine that mother nature can create something so absolutely beautiful and perfect.

Iceland adventure

What else can impress? It is worth mentioning even Hnasapollur - a volcanic lake that we will meet on the way to Landmannalaugar, or the Laki craters - Lakagigar. Travel to these and many other places will not be so monotonous if you have to overcome the untamed river Kossa, where there are no bridges;) Hey adventure!

It is understandable, therefore, that if someone dreams of a wedding session in Interie, an off-road car is the basis. Be sure, however, that such a journey is worth every photo!

We realize that perhaps only persistent have reached the end of this description. If so, a reward awaits you now! We are not sure if anyone else has reached Iceland into the wedding session. We are happy to show you Julka and Krzysia, love in the heart of Iceland. Here she is!

Lofoten Islands - Wedding Session

Lofoten Islands – wedding photography

It is a completely different dimension of wedding photos, different experiences, much greater involvement of both the photographer and the couple, and finally the Wow effect. During a standard wedding session in a city or nearby park, you spend no more than one afternoon, and after the session you return to everyday matters. A foreign wedding session is definitely a bigger undertaking.

Wedding sessiom – Lofoten

You have probably wondered more than once where you can make a wedding session abroad, what place to choose to make the photos delight? Or how to organize it? How much does a wedding session abroad cost? Does it pay off at all? Is it all worthwhile?

Nowadays, it is not difficult to organize an exotic wedding session abroad. In fact, the most important thing is your attitude and the world is open. Of course, today or tomorrow we may have a problem to fly out wherever we want because of the ongoing covid theme. The pandemic has mixed up a lot and we have many limitations at the moment. Which does not mean that it is impossible to organize a foreign plein-air successfully. This session will prove that in times of a pandemic you can make a fabulous wedding session abroad. Remember that a pandemic is only a transitional stage that will pass. The borders will open, the restrictions are gone, and then the desire to travel will be even greater. Especially since there are so many possibilities for an amazing wedding session abroad. European cities that delight with their architecture and famous monuments, such as Venice, Rome, Paris or Lisbon – will be perfect for a wedding session in an urban, romantic style. Iceland, Norway, Scotland, Madeira and Tuscany will be perfect for those who love spectacular views or picturesque landscapes. It does not matter if your wedding session will take place in Italy or on the hot Santorini, or perhaps stunning Iceland or Lofoten, the most important thing is that it will make your dreams come true.

At the beginning, be sure to watch the report from this unique trip. You will see all of this. which delighted our eyes, and above all, you will see how we work during foreign sessions:

Honeymoon and photo session

The combination of a wedding session with a mini honeymoon trip is a very practical solution, thanks to which you not only get a souvenir in the form of an original photo session, you also visit and spend time for tourists, enjoying yourself and a short vacation.

A wedding session abroad is your time together in amazing photos. It is a unique adventure and amazing experience. Do you dream of a wedding session with a real “wow” effect ?! See how we organized and realized the wedding of Ola and Adrian in Norway, in the breathtaking Lofoten. We assure you that after watching the session, you will no longer wonder if it is worth it!

Wedding session in Norway

When going to Norway or Iceland, we almost guarantee spectacular and breathtaking views. It is a dream come true for lovers of wild, stunning nature and colors.

But Norway is not Spain, Greece or Croatia – the weather here is changeable and may surprise you. It is worth taking into account an additional, emergency day when booking flights. It just so happens that flights to Scandinavia are for a minimum of -2-4 days, thanks to which there is enough time to make great photo material. Of course, you can arrange a longer stay, even a week, rent a motorhome and travel across Norway, but it is associated with higher costs on the spot and higher remuneration for the photographer.

When thinking about a wedding session abroad, first of all try to plan it so that it is in line with your expectations and possibilities.

With our couple – Ola and Adrian, we flew to Norway in August (holidays are the best time when it comes to weather). Perhaps some of you will think that a wedding session abroad in the midst of a pandemic is a big risk. Initially, we also did not know what awaited us and what might happen during the trip. But for a moment we had no doubts that it was a good decision and that it would be amazing. Norway is a very vast country, the coastline is over 100,000 kilometers, there are few overpopulated places, and we finally chose the direction of Lofoten – for wild and unspoiled views.

Lofoten – the most beautiful places for sessions in North Europe

The trip to the site was not difficult logistically. First, a flight from Gdańsk to Bodo. From the airport, we went directly to the ferry that took us to Lofoten, and we had a car booked on site. There is also a good accommodation base in Lofoten, we chose a house in a place from which we were strategically closest to individual points, where we intended to photograph our couple. A wedding session in Lofoten requires a lot of time to move from place to place. Make sure you plan where you would like to take photos. The distances between the most spectacular places are quite long, and many of them are hidden between or behind rocks or mountains that can only be reached on foot. Comfortable trekking shoes are essential!

But what is so special about a wedding session in Lofoten, and why is it worth the trouble and hiking rocky trails?

Lofoten islands in the north of Norway, experts from National Geographic awarded them the third place among the most beautiful islands in the world for a reason! Lofoten consists of seven islands, five of which are connected by the E10 road, and the other two are accessible by ferry or plane. The fairy-tale landscapes of the Lofoten Islands seem so magical that they are almost unreal. The steep slopes of the mountains rise straight from the sea to a height of 1,200 meters, and their inaccessible walls isolate small fishing villages from civilization. Some of the villages are completely abandoned. The red and yellow stilt houses – the famous Rorbuer – are traditional fishermen’s huts, rented to tourists today. On a sunny day, these honey yellow and dark red wooden walls are an amazing contrast to the surrounding nature. The towns and villages are incredibly charming. Beautiful beaches with fine white sand, the depth of the colors of the coastline, the clarity of the air and the magical northern light – all of these together create real magic in the photos. it is difficult to express with words everything that appears to the eyes. The view from Reine on the Kirkefjord has been recognized as the most beautiful in Norway. By climbing 1600 rock stairs to heaven to get to this summit, we can confirm – it is the most beautiful! It is also the most famous trail of the Lofoten.

In addition to the planned photo points, we absorbed and stopped to photograph and admire the views from the route. Without sticking to strict frameworks, we work best and definitely the most effective. Our spontaneity and openness is also positively perceived by our young couples who we photograph during our trips. Additionally, we will take care of every detail to make the final effect of the session delightful. Iwona will do professional makeup and hairstyle for the session. You will look as beautiful as you did on your wedding day. We even had a wedding bouquet, which Ola made for the session herself – see her profile (Wiecheciowo) – she creates floral wonders and beautiful wedding decorations.

In such a creative set, we could go to absolutely any place in the world and bring beautiful wedding photos from there. That’s for sure.

Lofoten adventure

Every most beautiful postcard needs this light, spark and a carrier of feelings to gain a subjective and deeper dimension. This medium in our photography has always been a human, a relationship or an emotion.

No mountains are terrible, no demanding trails with such a positive atmosphere and a huge dose of positive energy. The feeling that we are going on a journey together to create something unique gives us wind in our wings.

What else made the wedding session in Lofoten unique? It will sound cliche, but it’s love! In the middle of a breathtaking view, we always see a man. We tend to watch their feelings, bonds and relationships with tenderness. We didn’t have to give too many tips on how to pose. Anyway, authenticity plays a very important role in our photography, not only in wedding reportage. We leave our couples a space that they simply fill with each other. After all, it is the human being who inspires the creation of the most beautiful stories.

If you were also delighted with this beautiful wedding session in Lofoten, and you dream that your wedding took place in an equally amazing place, then write to us! We have extensive experience and we have already completed many wedding sessions abroad. With us, you can be sure that everything will be organized to the last button, and the photos will be the most beautiful souvenir to which you will return many times. We will be happy to go with you not only to Lofoten, but to any other place you dream about.

Finally, check out the report from this unique trip. You will see all of this. which delighted our eyes, and above all, you will see how we work during foreign sessions.

So what ?! Who goes with us on another amazing journey for the most beautiful wedding photos?

Beautiful wedding and wedding reception - Cicha 23

Cicha 23 - Beautiful place in Warsaw

Beautiful wedding photos are no longer a dream today, they are standard. We want a fairy tale. Nothing wrong with that, it's the only day where we want to feel special and spend it special. Is there a recipe for the perfect wedding and reception? Yes! Do it your way. Take your loved ones, those who will play with you breathlessly, provide space for revelations on the dance floor, as well as the quiet one, accompanied by crickets and the noise of trees, decorate all with sincere smiles, take care of delicious food and chilled drinks for refreshment. Leave the rest of the decorations to specialists or nature 🙂 Sounds trivial, and sometimes there is a long way to such a fairy tale. It is important at the end of this road to find yourself in a place that will provide you with a fairy tale.

Rustic wedding - Marki Cicha 23

The present times have deprived us of pompous weddings and parties with pomp. For how long? Nobody or almost nobody knows for sure. We trust that the next season will be more gracious for our couples, without prohibitions and restrictions. As you know, this year's wedding season put obstacles on the feet of the entire wedding industry, especially couples who were planning their big day. Restrictions related to the number of guests probably most often forced couples to change their wedding plans, postpone the wedding date, change the venue, or give up the wedding completely to wait for more favorable times. We even had a couple who postponed the date twice and finally canceled the wedding.

The wedding season was filled with uncertainty. Weddings and receptions had to be intimate, with a number of compromises. And they might not have happened at all.

Does this highly realistic sugar-free introduction mean that it was the worst season since we photograph weddings? And here we will surprise you! He was the best! Absolutely! It is hard for us to fully understand it, but indeed, this year's weddings were the most beautiful we had the pleasure to photograph so far. We worked in beautiful, fashionable venues for a wedding and a wedding reception. A Cicha 23 is undoubtedly one of the leading such places in the immediate vicinity of Warsaw. In addition to fairy-tale locations, we also met fantastic people. Finally - we had the most diverse season in terms of reporting - from micro ceremonies, to maybe not grand for 200 people, but energetic, intimate parties.

We are happy to recall the romantic humanist wedding in Stara Kruszarnia - many couples can dream of such a beautiful ceremony and an atmospheric party. And beautiful wedding photos are the most valuable carrier of these memories.

Undoubtedly, such projects give us energy, strength, motivation and make us want to give even more.

Paradoxically, perhaps all these limitations have made weddings and weddings, although intimate, even more authentic, unique, organized with heart, commitment and even more beautifully framed?

We have witnessed just such.

Lovely place for wedding - Cicha 23

The fact of the uncertainty accompanying the entire period of wedding preparations, the suddenly changing restrictions, etc. was associated primarily with constant stress. It was not easy for young couples - it must be emphasized. And we are not surprised that many couples preferred to postpone the event to a better time than to organize it in such difficult conditions.

Fortunately, some of them stayed with their decisions and, regardless of the difficulties, they survived until the end. Like Agatka and Marcin.

Probably only They know how many obstacles they had to overcome to finally stand face to face and swear love to each other. They changed the date. They also changed the wedding venue and party - three times! And when red zone restrictions were introduced in the fall, they changed both the premises and the church a week before the ceremony.

Probably many would doubt. But in this case, the saying "up to three times a piece" fit perfectly! Not only that, it couldn't have ended better!

Cicha 23 - here the final of Agatka and Marcin's wedding preparations took place.

Cicha 23 - is a place that delights from the very first moments. Surrounded by forest, away from the city noise and at the same time only 20 minutes from the very center of Warsaw.

Cicha 23 - is a guarantee of beautiful wedding photos. It is a perfect space for modern outdoor weddings, the most fashionable wedding receptions or original photo sessions.

It is located in Marki near Warsaw. There used to be a brickyard here, today, surrounded by nature, two stables overgrown with wild wine have been restored. The complex includes extensive wilderness, gardens, extraordinary Kimura Glamping tents and terraces.

This area is very popular, the space is extremely photogenic and, most importantly, constantly beautified. Cicha has a unique, intimate atmosphere, the stables are originally arranged, lush vegetation is the basis of the interior design of the whole Cicha. The combination of greenery (indeed! Trees grow straight from the floor here), raw brick and wood is impressive. In addition, boho-style tents bring to mind the tropical climate of Bali.

We already had the opportunity to photograph the engagement session in Kimura Glamping tents. This is a place made to celebrate love!

Agatka's preparations took place in a wooden house next to a large stable. If you dream of celebrating the day of wedding preparations from the morning, close to nature, in the spirit of words, and to have a photogenic space for beautiful wedding photos - this place is made for it.

And it was wrapped in the autumn aura, blissful silence, and these colors! In such surroundings, the bride's makeup and hairstyle is a time to relax. Completely in opposition to the often-seen pre-wedding hustle and bustle under stress.

And those wedding accessories! Lovely details and jewelry, wedding rings, flowers, decorations - everything fits perfectly into the space of Cicha 23.

Large stable Cicha 23 - wedding day

Agatka and Marcin's wedding was one of the last we photographed this year. Probably everyone would like this end of the season. Autumn weddings have this extraordinary, romantic aura. Devoid of harsh light, in a slightly nostalgic atmosphere, with an overwhelming number of night photos illuminated with magic lights. We love this atmosphere and the opportunity to experiment with light.

We like autumn variety. During the day, light and multi-colored leaves of trees, and at night, the magic of lights, rain and the glow of wet wood. The unusual corners of Cicha inspire to create original frames, regardless of the weather or the season. But there would be no magic and so many beautiful wedding photos without them. In love and happy. This day was undoubtedly a reward for them for a number of pre-wedding challenges. They did not hide their joy. The dance floor was ablaze with hot boogie beats. Here and there there was a buzz of conversation and loud laughter during the toasts.

The night mini-session allowed me to escape for a moment from the wedding fun to cuddle up to each other and look at each other's eyes. You often thank us for these short kidnappings at weddings. You can see these fleeting moments of tender closeness later in the wedding album.

We feel great joy that we could look at them from behind the camera. Beautiful wedding photos are more than a report or a reportage showing the course of events. These are all the tender moments. Over time, they will become more valuable of all wedding souvenirs.

Oczyszczalnia Miejsce - Slow Wedding in the Barn

Slow Wedding -  most beautiful ceremony

And if you would like to live your wedding day in total ease, without the imposed frames, scenarios, in an unhurried pace, in an atmosphere of joy? Joys out of love! This is the idea of "slow wedding" - definitely yours, far from tradition, with non-standard ideas, with joy and freedom.

Words ! The wedding is not to please everyone around you. Because there is not one vision that is able to reconcile your, often very alternative and modern solutions, with the traditional expectations of even aunts from far away sides. Often after such struggles, the only thing you remember from this day is stress.

The wedding day is a feast of your love for which you have waited so long. It's worth taking care to collect photos of smiles and authentic moments on the pages of the album to make it look as you dreamed.

Slow Wedding Photographer

A wedding vision in the spirit of Slow Wedding would not be consistent without a proper place. In addition, a wedding outdoors in the idea of slow fits perfectly. A complete event, where everything takes place in one place, from the preparation of the bride and groom, through the ceremony in the open air, to the wedding reception is a hit.

Purification Site (until recently called Stodola of All Saints) is an ideal place for this type of event. This is one of the few complexes in Poland, where a unique atmosphere of idyllicness and nature can be felt in every corner of the vast area. In addition, the unique main architecture of the building makes an amazing impression. Everything here is perfectly integrated into nature, both inside the main hall and the greenhouse. So if you dream about a party in a space that perfectly fits into a rustic wedding, boho or more alternative, modern outdoor weddings in a barn, then the Purification Plant is a perfect choice.

Oczyszczalnia Miejsce - rusty style polish wedding

From the very first moments of the reportage, Monika and Rafał's preparations were characterized by ease and freedom, without a rigid schedule and "cufflinks". You will not find here moments of running in stress or arranged scenes from wedding preparations. Someone unhurriedly decorated the place of the ceremony, someone else's room and the kids were chasing around the grounds in a carefree play.

You will not find typical frames, where the bride gives herself to the hairdresser and make-up artist, and the bridesmaid helps her in putting on her wedding dress. No no! SLOW;) But you can do it differently.

Monia and Rafał had two groomsmen. And instead of preparing for makeup or dressing, they preferred a few free portraits against the background of a wooden barn. It's hard not to pay attention to how fantastic they presented themselves. Monika looked phenomenal! Both her pale-pink dress and a huge bouquet with colorful ribbons made a good impression. The groom chose a suit in grays and a contrasting tie and buttonhole. And one of the best men's powdery-pink suit. How many colors enjoyed the eye of the day!

The outdoor wedding ceremony was arranged on a wooden pier, on the water, with decorations in a minimalist version. It was the surroundings of nature and the closest ones gathered that were the best setting for Monika and Rafał's marriages. One of the few, if not the only, traditional element was the moment when Dad led Monika to the wedding. It was moving, magical and very slow.

Reception venue - Oczyszczalnia Miejsce

The climate that prevails in the Purification Plant allows for the implementation of the idea of ​​slow wedding. The wedding in this place can take the form of fun in many aspects. Will it be a conversation with a glass of wine in a pleasant environment of nature, or dance and madness on the dance floor. On the large green area, guests can relax on the numerous deck chairs and chillout areas. Outdoor games and games, or swinging on swings will make the time not only for the youngest.

We would not be ourselves if we did not use the barn's beautiful surroundings for a short outdoor session on the day of the wedding. This is the best opportunity for a few intimate shots during the reportage.

And when the night fell, the party started full. The parquet is burning, and whoever wanted to catch his breath could regenerate the forces at the grill in the grove located at the back of the building.

It was a bomb of positive energy, this day, this place, and maybe above all - these people. Because it was SLOW - bomb slow! It's great to be part of such events <3

We hope that watching you smile more than once and inspire you!

Autumn in the Abandoned Greenhouse, a wedding session full of love and magic

Wedding session in a old Abandoned Glasshouse

Many couples look for inspiration and ideas to find a remarkable place for wedding session. It has also become fashionable to personalize your wedding through not only the character or style of the ceremony. The smallest details, such as flowers, decorations, decorations and other seemingly minor additions are of importance. And while the fashion for style changes, there is one thing – couples want to stand out, create something individual and unique, and then these unique moments to watch in the pictures. Choosing a location for a wedding session is not easy, of course you can go shortcuts and choose a nearby park or forest at sunrise or sunset. However, to create an unusual, unique but interesting atmosphere, something more is needed.

Since we have been professionally involved in photography, we have probably recoded all possible variants of wedding and engagement sessions. We photographed at any time of the year, we transformed mountains, forests, the sea, there were also lakes and swamps. Urban and industrial sessions, palaces – both beautiful and their ruins. Foreign sessions in historic towns, but also tourist pearls and classic places of love, such as Venice. We could exchange for a moment. We like this diversity and try not to photograph several times in the same place, to constantly stimulate creativity and continue to develop.

The romantic atmosphere of an abandoned greenery

However, there are places where we return with a beating heart. Speech of a famous, abandoned greenhouse 😉 This is a magical place with great potential. We realized how much you are interested in such remarkable spaces, when after the publication of our first “greenhouse session” there is no week for someone not to write to us asking us to reveal its location;)

Old, forgotten, overgrown with nature by greenhouses is an example of an amazing background for wedding sessions. Because they have a real fairy-tale atmosphere, regardless of the season, they are still interesting. The rusted construction of the greenhouse contrasts with pieces of glass overgrown with greenery and moss. The play of lights on the broken glass creates a kind of magic. And in the interior of the spreading tree, which has long since broken through the roof, has settled in for good. It was a little pity to see how damaged this greenhouse is today. Everyone who dreams of a similar session should remember that the seemingly abandoned area may formally belong to someone. Let us try not to leave traces of our presence and respect such places that they will last as long as possible.

We carried out the wedding session of Paulina and Bartosz in autumn. We wanted to capture the less obvious atmosphere of autumn. That day we worked in a very harsh light, which despite the fact that it was not easy, it really fueled the nature of the frames and gave them a bit of a claw. Our couple looked stylish and perfectly suited the place. Paulina had a light, ethereal and airy dress in a boho style from Justyna Kodym. Delicate lace combined with airy materials of white and powder pink beautifully combined with the autumn bouquet of heather. And the green wreath completed the stylization. Bartek’s suit is a nod to the timeless, elegant classics. The place provided intimacy, it allowed the couple to feel really at ease, and it can be seen in the pictures. There were also a few shots with smoke, one of them was very popular on industry portals 😉 Smoke flares added romantic, unusual light. Just at the end of the session!

And how the whole story from the deserted greenhouse presented itself, see below. We hope that after seeing You, you will also feel the magic of the place. Or maybe this realization will become an inspiration to look for similar and unusual ones?

Enjoy!

Polish-Norwegian DIY wedding in a Scandinavian style

A DIY wedding near the Oslo

When we think about what a perfect wedding day should look like, we usually have a nice place in our heads, good weather and a bunch of loved ones who celebrate their love. We really want it to be as beautiful as possible, because wedding is that special event in the life of every couple!

And our dream wedding? What do we as photographers have on mind when imagining the perfect wedding? The answer to this question came with the message from Estera. She is Polish, he is Norwegian. Another mixed couple, we were lucky to come across. Love and art in the background, as one of them has an artistic soul.

Slow wedding in Norway

Estera told us that, together with Kristoffer, they are planning a wedding ceremony and a garden reception party at the waterfront, on premises of a rented villa that is not a typical "wedding location", yet they want to break the schemes by organizing a DIY wedding, doing everything themselves from scratch. And that they want to show what strength creativity has and that you can do it! by preparing a magical wedding for little money. And if you add that the bride is also a professional photographer, and the whole organization was taken care of 3 months ahead of schedule (and not by necessity or lack of time), we knew then that something amazing awaits us. Our intuition was right, and the reality exceeded our wildest expectations.

If you ask if it is really possible to get married where everyone, not only the young couple, just enjoys the day in a relaxed atmosphere... without unnecessary stress, stiff schedule, no artificial moments: "because you have to", "because they say so" "because that's tradition" - this wedding shows that you truly can! And although from the aesthetic side it was beautiful, consistent and everything was pleasant to the eye and... frame, yet the atmosphere and people where the most enchanting without which nothing would be achieved.

The very beginning of this day was special (carefree?). A rented, typical Scandinavian villa, with a beautiful garden on the shores of the Oslo bay in. A bunch of closest friends and a large family. Putting up tents, decorations, lighting, ceremony setting, everything done together in the company of running kids, play and coolness. Kristoffer's preparation were at home, with a truly royal breakfast 🙂 Estera, on the other hand, with her bridesmaids at the Villa. Another guests arrive on the spot. Finally, just before the ceremony, the time for a unique, intimate moment in which he and she see each other all dressed up for the first time. Emotions. Then there were even more. The chosen location of Estera on her "first look" was perfect - rocky fjord coast near the wedding venue. A great moment worth planning during your wedding day.

The ceremony and reception were already a whole collection of emotions. There were so many of them that it's hard to list everything here. Numerous speeches and toasts (no alcohol!), Surprises prepared for the couple, the first dance under the open sky, celebration!

If we were to sum up this wedding briefly, it would be a combination of Polish hospitality with the Scandinavian aesthetics of minimalism, surrounded by beautiful nature. But this is not enough, because you can't lock the atmosphere within a single word that great people created all the time 🙂

And probably we won't find the right words to describe how this wedding is simply unique and close to our hearts. It was a special day during which we felt joy and fulfillment - the work of dreams, and the first wedding report from which we were leaving as last! Thanks to it, we can tell you this story from the beginning to the end. And we spent many hours choosing the right photos, this essence, which will perfectly reflect all the magic and beauty of those moments.
