Vintage Wedding in Palace

Vintage style wedding – Palace Malina

Vintage - it's an atmosphere reminiscent of bygone eras. These are inspirations drawn from old family photos, the smell of books, interiors full of old furniture and decorations. And if we combine all this with an event such as a wedding, we have a guarantee of a unique atmosphere. Regardless of the current fashion!

Malina Palace - a place for a wedding that inspires

Sometimes it happens that when you are not chasing a specific style when organizing your own wedding and reception, this style is found and defined by yourself. This or that climate appears unforced, naturally dressed by the place and the aura. Coming back to the day and the reportage from Kamil and Agnieszka's wedding, it was the vintage atmosphere that accompanied us all the time of shooting, at every stage of the report, in every place.

Malina Palace - because we want to tell you about this place today, it has been restored relatively recently, and it only looks like when the flood of vintage weddings begins. This facility is ideally suited for planning outdoor celebrations. The interiors of the palace and the entire area are kept in a nostalgic, retro atmosphere. While staying in the palace, you can feel completely hidden, away from the rushing world, surrounded by a quiet, somewhat wild nature.

The interiors of the palace and all rooms are not so much stylized to previous eras, but authentic furniture and objects that make this place so real. Restored with taste, because there is also a hint of modernity, but in the spirit of the past.

And coming back to the wedding theme, the best part is that when organizing a wedding here, you don't need a lot of decorations. This place is so unusual that any wedding styling seems unnecessary. But Agnieszka and Kamil achieved a perfect balance. Small rustic elements, only on the tables, or the arrangement of the ceremony venue at the back of the palace, harmonized well with the retro atmosphere of the mansion.

Outdoor wedding at the Malina Palace - Kutno

Preparations took place in one of the palace rooms. The interior was very atmospheric, kept in warm and powdery tones. Old furniture or original wallpapers created a beautiful background for wedding details. In addition, old, already tarnished mirrors, stylish lampshades, lamps - were a source of inspiration and differentiation of frames.

The bride and groom prepared together. No witnesses. No guests standing at the wall. Self-centered, self-centered, waiting for the festive moment. It made the atmosphere very intimate and romantic. Remember, it is up to you how you organize your wedding preparations. If you are stressed by the hustle and bustle of the household, you do not have to participate in it. It's your day - make sure that it evokes only the nicest emotions.

Wedding session in the old library

A session on a wedding day is usually associated with taking a short break just before sunset, somewhere in a nearby, green area. Often this solution also appears in our country. But when there is a beautiful library in the palace, preserved in an authentic atmosphere, with large windows and side light, it is impossible to give it up to run to the garden.

Lush green walls, hundreds of books stacked up to the ceiling, wooden bookshelves, desks and secretaries. The entire interior of the library is decorated with great attention to the smallest detail and the tiniest trinkets.

The library is a perfect idea for a mini session on the wedding day! This interior is undoubtedly an additional advantage of the entire facility. It's worth using it. It is also an idea to spend a few extra moments alone, in silence and cuddles during the time when the guests gather for the ceremony.

An outdoor wedding in the palace, among loved ones, surrounded by the greenery of a wild park, is a truly romantic but intimate setting. The perfect place and aura to swear to yourself.

Among other things, it was because of the aura - this report was extraordinary. There was no rush, no sudden events, no hustle and bustle under stress. Instead, the whole event was filled with an aura of peace, joyful melancholy, everything proceeded smoothly and slowly. We could wait for the moments, look for perfect frames. A portrait of my grandfather, sitting among the empty chairs, sipping champagne quietly in anticipation of his turn to make wishes - was awarded at one of the wedding competitions. But that's not the only reason why this photo is extraordinary. Such a portrait of a grandfather or another loved one at a wedding is a souvenir that will move sensitive strings for many years and generations.

The essence of wedding reportage is not only the center of the event and the two most important people of the day, i.e. the bride and groom. It is also a lot of seemingly side scenes that, when put together, create a generational story.

A rainy wedding in a vintage atmosphere

Beautiful weather on a wedding day is often one of the leading items on a wedding wish list. Rain doesn't have to be terrible! A wedding in pouring rain has already appeared on our blog, it is one of the most alternative and stylish weddings we have had the opportunity to photograph. It's time to disenchant this stereotype. Rain can be an ally, it can build an amazing atmosphere, especially in a place with such an atmosphere as the Malina Palace!

The nostalgic weather not only did not spoil the ceremony or wedding, but added a romantic, film atmosphere. We can't understand why so many people can't turn rainy weather into an asset. It's raining? That's great ! Let's take an umbrella and go to the pictures! 🙂 After all, this is what reportage is about to catch and retain everything that this special day dresses into a story. All planned and spontaneous moments.

The most important thing is to enjoy every minute, this day passes so quickly!

Photos become a switch to memories. They recall specific moments, people and gestures in our memory. We feel joy that we can create them for you. Here is another true story.

Vintage love - Kamil and Agnieszka

Beautiful humanistic wedding - Stara Kruszarnia

Humanistic wedding in the forest - Stara Kruszarnia

This year's "strange" wedding season definitely rewards us with unique and beautiful realizations. Our wonderful couples who follow their hearts and their wedding dreams are behind them. They live this most important day according to what they feel. They organize beautiful, intimate ceremonies and original parties with a unique atmosphere.

Even in times like this, in a pandemic setting of do's and don'ts, you don't have to compromise. You can experience your special day in your own way. Don't give up on your dreams of a beautiful wedding! Because everything can go well, and with the right people around, it will be even more beautiful than you think.

As with Asia and Paweł. It is the story of this couple in love that we want to show you today. And this is a unique report, in the spirit of words, in a breathtaking place. You won't see a classic wedding scenario here. The scenario of this event was written by dreams, not by tradition.

An ideal place for an outdoor wedding

Stara Kruszarnia is an extraordinary place. With a soul, with a climate, located on a mountain slope in a fairy-tale forest scenery. It is here - to Złoty Stok in Lower Silesia that Asia and Paweł decided to come with family and friends to experience their Great Day. The place has a large accommodation base (it can accommodate up to 100 people), so you can take your families here without fear, if you are not from Lower Silesia.

The building of Stara Kruszarnia itself is a post-industrial facility. Formerly there was a so-called The Ore Breaker, belonging to the Gold Mine complex in Złoty Stok. Gold bearing rocks were crushed here. The building is fabulously situated, surrounded by wild nature, open-air weddings are held in the grove, the forest zone is lit with garlands of lights, there are also hammocks, swings, deckchairs and a fireplace.

Half of Poland is worth traveling to such a place. It is not surprising that Asia and Paweł chose Kruszarnia as the venue for their beautiful wedding and reception.

The magic is created by the place, its atmosphere and the surrounding climate. Therefore, the choice of location is crucial. This is where it all begins - the place puts you in the mood, makes this day a bit unreal, gives the event a dream-like atmosphere. A dream wedding in an amazing place? It sounds divine, and what's more, it is possible.

Beautiful slow wedding in Stara Kruszarnia

If you would like to organize your wedding in the "slow" spirit, this place is perfect. The atmosphere of the entire complex is enchanting, but the magic is not only the space of the place, it is primarily the people who fill this place.

Asia, Paweł and all the guests completed the atmosphere with an aura of warmth and peace. No stress, unnecessary hustle and bustle. Thanks to the excellent coordination of Wedding with Fantasy, we had time to photograph all the nooks and crannies of the place, amazing decorations, and most importantly, to be closest to the wedding moments full of joy and emotions. Emotions filled the space not only during the intimate humanistic wedding ceremony in a forest grove. They accompanied the event until the very end.

Stara Kruszarnia is a place created to celebrate joy and love. A humanistic wedding fits perfectly in such places. The forest chill zone definitely favors this. So if someone is looking for an industrial interior in the middle of a forest to celebrate in the spirit of slow wedding - he could not have found a better place.

Humanistic wedding in a forest scenery

A humanistic wedding is a symbolic, informal and, above all, personalized, personal form of a marriage vow. For whom? For people who want to swear love straight from the heart, and not repeat an oath. For people who want to experience the ceremony in a unique and absolutely personal way. Because in humanistic ceremonies, legal or religious issues are not important, but instead the dreams and feelings of the bride and groom. The individual nature of the wedding ceremony makes each ceremony completely unconventional and extremely touching, both for the couple and all guests.

Asia and Paweł wanted such a wedding. This solemn moment was beautifully led by the master of ceremonies, Joanna Humerczyk. The lovers made beautiful oaths written by themselves, confessing themselves and confirming their love. During the ceremony, the mother of the bride read an excerpt from the story.

Of course, these emotions took place in the grove, next to a wedding pergola prepared in this place. raw in form, school chairs added character, and the decorations both inside and outside the building were simply phenomenal. The place of the ceremony turned into a chillout zone under the cover of the night, where guests roasted sausages or danced under the starry sky.

But before nightfall, much more was happening. There was not enough time for a short mini session of the bride and groom, of course we used the place of the ceremony for the shots. By the way, it also looked beautiful from above. In such scenes, photos from the drone show a different perspective and complete the entire report.

A forest wedding in a post-industrial Kruszarnia - Złoty Stok

It was undoubtedly a beautiful wedding, if not one of the most beautiful we have had the opportunity to photograph. The wedding in the old Kruszarnia will be remembered for a long time. The room has a decidedly industrial character but still a rustic soul. Asia dreamed it would be green. The decorators took care of it to perfection. The arrangement of the room was fabulous. The tables were covered with green motifs, garlands of green also hung from the pillars. Flowers in tiny glass bottles and bottles covered almost the entire table of the bride and groom. Even the drinks were served in glass carafes and bottles. The flames of countless candles emphasized the texture of the glass accessories and the depth of the colors. A big round of applause for the girls who have achieved this effect.

The reliable Loud DJ made sure that the hall was not only beautiful but also lively in the dance and madness on the boards. The dance floor fading and the joy of celebrating continued uninterrupted. Unless someone preferred to lie on a hammock and sip drinks among the rustle of trees. Undoubtedly, everyone has found something for themselves. And we are also glad that we were there - in this place and among wonderful people. Thanks to this, we can show you this beautiful humanistic wedding and celebration of Asia and Paweł's love as they dreamed it.

Let the punch line and ending be a short excerpt from what they wrote to us after receiving the photos:

“The photos are great, we love it! They turned out beautifully! We are really happy that you were doing them - thank you so much!

We are really impressed, because they are wonderful, but they also reflect our feelings from that day and the atmosphere of the guests. Well, just WOW! "

We have no words to describe the gratitude, fulfillment, and joy of creating such stories!

Mansior House Mietowe Wzgorza - French-Polish Wedding

Mietowe Wzgorza – international wedding

Every time we have the opportunity to photograph international weddings, we are sure that the report from that day will be an amazing story with surprising moments. So it was this time. Magda and Glidas are a wonderful, smiling Polish-French couple full of energy. They celebrated their love authentically and at ease, and the result is this wedding reportage. It was one of the craziest weddings. And everything took place in the unique Miętowe Wzgórza residence.

Mansior House Mietowe Wzgorza – pool wedding

If you are an equally positive couple like Magda and Glidas, who do not chase the patterns and willingly follow the less well-worn wedding route, then you probably dream of a wedding in a place where this day will be truly special. Choosing the perfect wedding venue is not easy. But it's worth taking the time to choose exactly the place that will perfectly match the nature of your wedding and reception.

Magda and Glidas, although they do not live in Poland on a daily basis, decided to get married here. We can only imagine how difficult it must have been to organize an international wedding in times of a pandemic and constant wedding restrictions. Huge applause that they managed to organize it with great success. And even a pump (as you will see by following this post to the end).

The choice of the place where they celebrated their love fell on the Miętowe Wzgórza Residence in Zakroczym near Warsaw.

Mietowe Wzgorza Zakroczym – nice venue for wedding

A wedding ceremony and reception in Miętowe Wzgórza is the best proposition for all those who wish to make their wedding day special and unforgettable. An elegant residence in a slightly eclectic style is a combination of tasteful design and luxury. The biggest advantage of this place is the beautiful garden with an outdoor swimming pool, next to which open-air wedding ceremonies take place. Turquoise water, a sun-drenched villa and the atmosphere of the surrounding nature give this place a unique atmosphere. It is in vain to look for another such place in Warsaw. In addition, the fresh scent of mint, which grows in the nearby gardens in summer, makes this place a real refreshment on the wedding venues map for a wedding in Warsaw and its vicinity . The surrounding of nearby fields and forests, as well as garden gazebos, give you a break and make it peaceful and idyllic.

This truly soothing atmosphere favors young couples who often experience pre-wedding stress. No wonder that many couples choose Mint Hills to take their marriage vows by the pool and invite guests to their wedding here.

A wedding in Miętowe Wzgórzach is an interesting alternative for those who would like to transfer the style glamor or elegance from elegant palaces to places close to nature. The residence has an accommodation base and is located only 30 km from the center of the capital - it is definitely a good solution for couples from Warsaw, or in this case - for couples and guests from abroad.

Pool and crazy wedding party

Preparations of Magda and Glidas took place in the beautiful apartments of the residence. Meanwhile, magic was created in the wedding hall thanks to the extremely talented girls from Agu-Art. They made the wedding hall transform into a pastel pink, flowery garden. In addition, golden accessories and a large amount of artificial lights added warmth and romantic atmosphere. The decorators also took care of the external space, i.e. decorating the wedding place - the gazebo with the area by the pool.

The civil wedding by the swimming pool was extremely touching. Tears of joy ran down many cheeks and mingled with undisguised joy. It should be added here that despite many obstacles, the French part of the guests came in large numbers to the wedding ceremony. It additionally caused a smile - to be close, to be together in such difficult times is the best we can give. And the presence of loved ones on such an important day certainly made the young couple happy.

After emotions, wishes and all hugs, it's time for a wedding, toasts and fun.

And then it started!

Polish - French wedding - Mietowych Wzgorzach

Along with the first bars of the music, right after the spectacular first dance of the young couple, a real dance floor madness began. We haven't had so much energy, happiness and spontaneity for a long time.

Maybe it was the cultural mix, or maybe the uninhibited joy of celebrating the wedding of these two freed the dance floor, which for a moment did not remain empty. Well, unless there was a break for toasts or wedding speeches full of feelings. We must emphasize at this point how much we like all the emotional and tender moments that you share during the wedding and reception. These are the moments that are so precious and absolutely the most beautiful in a wedding album.

The joy and fun lasted for hours. We couldn't miss the opportunity to kidnap Magda and Glidas for a few one-on-one shots in the beautiful surroundings of the Mints. We know how much you like short plein-airs on your wedding day and you react positively to our ideas.

They also tasted sweet cake by the pool. It was delicious and spectacular. The greatest spectacle, however, was waiting for the end of this true festival of joy and love. Nobody expected it, and nobody planned it.

When we were at the end of our photographic work time - the swimming pool was filled with spontaneous jumps into the water of the wedding guests and the groom! Have we managed to reach for cameras again and capture those crazy and spontaneous moments?

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!

Beautiful wedding in Cicha 23

Cicha 23 - a place for beautiful wedding photos

Beautiful wedding photos are no longer a dream today, they are the real expectations of young couples. We want a fairy tale. Nothing wrong with that, it is 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 everything your way.

But remember a few tips. Take your loved ones! For those who will play with you until you run out of breath, provide a dance floor, as well as a quiet space, accompanied by crickets and the noise of trees. Decorate all of this with a smile and loose - it's your day! Take care of delicious food and chilled drinks for refreshment. Leave the rest of the decorations to specialists or nature ?

It sounds trivial, and sometimes there is a long way to such a fairy tale. It is important to find yourself at the end of this road in a place that will provide you with ... a fairy tale.

Cicha 23 Place for outdoor wedding

Cicha 23 in Marki - it is a wedding venue and a place for a wedding that enchants 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 (civil or humanistic and symbolic wedding ceremonies), the most fashionable wedding receptions in the barn or original photo sessions and wedding landscapes. It is located exactly in Marki, on the outskirts of the capital. There used to be a brickyard here, today, surrounded by nature, two stables overgrown with wild wine have been restored. The complex includes a vast green space, gardens, extraordinary Kimura Glamping tents and terraces. This area is very popular, the space is extremely photogenic, and most importantly, it is constantly beautified.

Cicha has an unusual, intimate atmosphere, the stables are originally arranged, lush vegetation is the basis of the interior design of the whole Cicha. The combination of greenery breaking into the stable (indeed! Trees grow straight from the floor here), raw brick and wood is impressive. In addition, the boho-style tents bring to mind the tropical climate of Bali. We have already had the opportunity to photograph the engagement session in Kimura Glamping tents. This is a place to celebrate love!

What else does Cicha offer? Wooden houses perfect for wedding preparations. Initially, there was only a house next to a large stable. And recently there is another one. Kasia's preparations took place in a wooden house next to a small stable. If you dream of celebrating the day of wedding preparations in peace, close to nature, in the spirit of words, and to have a photogenic space for beautiful wedding photos - this place is made for it. Surrounded by greenery, blissful silence, and this natural aesthetics inside! In such surroundings, the bride's makeup and hairstyle is a time to relax. Completely in opposition to the often-encountered pre-wedding hustle and bustle under stress. Kasia was getting ready at the house with her seven-month-old daughter, their moments of closeness are a strong point of the reportage. And these extras! Two wedding dresses, wonderful details and jewelry, wedding rings, flowers, decorations at the ceremony site and on the tables - everything fits perfectly into the space of Cicha.

Little Stable Cicha 23 - wedding reception in a barn

The wedding and wedding of Kasia and Damian was one of the most beautiful we photographed last season. The unusual corners of Cicha inspire to create original frames, regardless of the weather or the season of the year. However, the weather was good for us. This is important, especially for an outdoor wedding ceremony. Outdoor weddings have this unusual, romantic aura.

But there would be no magic and so many beautiful wedding photos without them. In love and happy. This day was an extraordinary experience for them, but also for us.

We obligatorily made a short session outdoors, and after returning to the room, hot meals were provided by Catering Kręgliccy. With their first dance in the open air, the newlyweds officially started the dance celebration. It was a wedding in a beautiful style. Young people and guests did not hide their joy. The dance floor was ablaze with hot rhythms. Here and there there was a buzz of conversation and loud laughter during the toasts. And in the open air, wedding guests could taste the delicious burgers from "Bydło i Powidło".

The night mini wedding session allowed for a moment to escape from the wedding fun to cuddle up to each other and look at each other in the eyes. Here we also used the night lighting of Cicha and a house next to a small stable. Romantic, in a slightly nostalgic atmosphere, a perfect space for photos with magic lights. We love this atmosphere and the possibility of experimenting with light. You often thank us for these short kidnappings at weddings. You can watch these fleeting moments of affection later in your 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 the most valuable of all wedding souvenirs.

A beautiful place for a wedding near Warsaw – Cicha 23 Marki

The present times have deprived us of boisterous weddings and pompous parties. For how long? Nobody knows for sure. We trust that the next season will be more gracious for our couples, that everything will slowly start to return to its former tracks. Restrictions related to the number of guests probably most often forced couples to change their wedding plans, postpone the wedding date, change the place of the event, or even completely abandon the wedding to wait for more favorable times. Weddings and receptions were more intimate, sometimes with a number of compromises.

Does this highly realistic sugar-free introduction mean that it was a worse season since we were photographing weddings? And here we will surprise you!

He was the best! Absolutely! It's hard for us to fully understand it, but 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 Event Place is undoubtedly one of the leading places in the immediate vicinity of Warsaw.

In addition to fairy-tale locations, we met fantastic people. We have established new relationships. Finally - we had the most diverse season in terms of reporting - from micro ceremonies, to maybe not fancy weddings for 200 people, but energetic, intimate parties. We are happy to remember 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 that will remain next to your memories.

Undoubtedly, such projects give us energy, strength, motivation and make us want to give even more. Paradoxically, maybe all these limitations made weddings and weddings, although intimate, even more authentic, unique, organized with heart, commitment and even more beautifully framed? We have witnessed just such.

Wedding in Portugal

Weddings abroad are becoming more and more popular every year. Especially in these warmer corners of the world. There are many couples who decide to take a handful of loved ones to take their marriage vows in a picturesque place in their presence. In the mountains, a small church hidden somewhere far away from civilization, or on a paradise beach – the choice is yours.

Such an idea for a wedding makes this day even more special, and memories take on a different color. Destination wedding is the perfect solution for all couples who are not attached to tradition, instead of a grand wedding with lots of guests, they dream of an intimate celebration in a fairytale scenery. Wedding abroad can also be an idea for your moment of sealing love. Today we will tell you about one unique wedding that happened in Portugal.

Destination Wedding – Porto

Luke i Rebecca – a couple of Americans with Korean roots decided to organize their wedding in a picturesque villa with a swimming pool on the outskirts of Porto. From the United States they came to Portugal (interestingly, it was their first trip to Portugal) just to get married. A photographer from Poland was supposed to capture this event in the lens. This work will probably never cease to surprise us! We felt a great distinction that it was us who chose us to be the only ones (though if you carefully follow the material, you will see that we had strong competition :)) create the memory of this special day through the prism of our sensitivity and look.

We feel great responsibility when photographing weddings. Each time we not only carefully observe everything that is happening around us, but we experience this day with you.

 Slow Wedding in Duoro Valley

First time we met Luke and Rebecca at the wedding venue, in the fabulously situated Villa Quinta do Gato. The scenery evoked a Tuscan, picturesque estate, hidden between vast fields and orchards of olive trees. In a word – hidden away from people. The holiday villa turned out to be an ideal place to organize such an intimate event as a wedding.

From the very morning the closest family and a handful of friends prepared the area of ​​the villa for this special holiday of lovers. Such unhurried preparations in a relaxed, friendly atmosphere are always an opportunity for unique, authentic shots. The idea of ​​slow weeding, which accompanies the wedding preparations since the beginning, means that we do not have to stick to rigidly marked program points. Instead, we focus on authentic emotions to show the multithreading of the day. It is important for us to always look for frames and tell stories from dozens of small but important moments. In our opinion, this is the key to an interesting, valuable wedding reportage.

Preparing the garden for the wedding ceremony, work with flowers and decorations, decorating the table for a gala dinner, while preparing the participants themselves in the villa. Girls doing makeup or combing each other, conversations and leisurely bustle of loved ones. Like preparation but without the hustle and bustle, but in such a light, wonderful atmosphere waiting for the culmination of the ceremony.

We were impressed and wanted the wedding preparations to have a strong position in this report.

And details. So many beautiful details, a bit traditional like Korean, festive kimonos of both mothers or jewelry, combined with modern accessories and wedding details.

Destination Wedding Photographer

When the preparations were over and the time came for the most important moment of the day, everyone took their seats to welcome the bride and groom. The heat was pouring down from the sky, and tears were flowing from the eyes. It was a very emotional ceremony and marriage vow. The young read their own vows, and the loved ones did not hide their tears of emotion. We were impressed by how carefully they experienced not only the moment of marriage, but the whole event all gathered around Luke and Rebbeca. Bond and attachment were clearly visible. And just after the oath, the newlyweds gave their traditional thanks to their parents.

We had to remain vigilant all the time, weddings without a wedding planner are quite spontaneous, and many elements were new to us, and we didn’t want anything to escape our eyes. And I think it worked;)

Session near Porto

When the ceremony and wishes came to an end, the celebration finally began! Everyone gathered at one long table, and at the time several musicians were playing in the garden. In the case of wedding photography, there could also be commemorative, family group photos.

We were able to kidnap nourished and relaxed newlyweds for a short session outdoors. The golden light of the setting sun painted the grain and made the scenery even more beautiful. They looked insane! The bride in a minimalistic, simple dress made of shiny silk. For this modest makeup and naturally strands of facial hair. Beauty and simplicity of effortless elegance. Luke also chose the classic of a perfectly tailored suit, and as an addition he chose an elegant fly. Sometimes too rich and rich details are too much.

During this short session on our wedding day, we couldn’t have wished for better light and steam! We used this time to the last ray.

There was no end to joy. And it may surprise some that without dances or weddings guests can have such a great time. It was a very intimate, warm welcome. Focused on the bride and groom. Everyone gathered here for them. We liked the idea and we felt joy that we could participate in it.

The highlight was a champagne toast and cake. It was also the right moment to gradually and almost imperceptibly retreat with the camera.

This is also a good time to change words into pictures and leave you with this beautiful story!

Porto! Them! Love!

Weddng full of glamour, elegance & classic style - Dwor Afrodyta

Glamour wedding in Dwor Afrodyta 

Every time we choose to photograph a wedding, we wonder if something will happen that will completely surprise us. After all, each wedding is based on certain, specific frames, but the styles or fashions that “dress” the event change. We have a young couple, we have an oath and finally a celebration.

And although we’ve probably seen dozens of church ceremonies, This was a real firecracker! Up to now, it has not crossed our minds that such a joy full of unblemished laughter from the diaphragm, on the lips of all gathered, can so clearly dominate during masses.

Yes Yes! It was the most beautiful church wedding we had the pleasure to photograph so far! But let’s start from the beginning.

Classic and Elegance in Romantic issue

The great Oni – Ola and Przemek, chose the elegant Dworek Aphrodyta in Radziejowice as their wedding reception venue. The classic, bright interiors were perfect for achieving the full glamor of the glamor climate, but without unnecessary glamor. Pastel powder shades of pink, beige and peach dominated. Flowers from Sunflower, beautifully decorated dress from Viola Piekut, delicate jewelry – everything went perfectly together and the style suited the interior. There, preparations for the wedding took place in quite a large group. Ola and Przemek were accompanied by friends, four bridesmaids and four groomsmen – we felt that it would be fun. Preparations themselves exceeded our expectations. The young took care of every detail not only of interior decoration. Druhenki had the same dresses and even dressing gowns, and the gentlemen chose the same ties.

There is another element of the arrangement, which we are extremely proud of 🙂 Photos from the wonderful session of fiancee Ola and Przemek, which we made in Paris in spring, enjoyed the eye woven in taste in the decorations on the tables, and a large picture exposed in the lobby welcomed guests. We are very happy when you so beautifully use the effects of our wedding sessions at your wedding.

Place for romantic wedding near Warsaw

If you like first look, this one will surprise you. Do you know more than one scene, where he is waiting in a secluded place with his eyes closed, and she walks quietly to his back? At Ola and Przemek, it was a pump and fun! Przemek did not wait for Ola. Together with groomsmen, holding balloons in their hands, they went to get their beautiful girls. It is worth noting that they did not use the help of a wedding planner or wedding consultant, watching over the events. Fantastic atmosphere, sincere joy built the course of events. And that’s what it’s all about!

We expected that during the wedding ceremony, energy and fanfare would give way to seriousness and reverie. Nothing more wrong! And all thanks to no one else and the priest who gave the wedding to Ola and Przemek. It turned out that he was exceptionally on that day. And he was a priest who, we can confidently say, kidnapped the whole church. He led the ceremony with energy, commitment, joy, did not spare jokes and even sang a young song. Almost all smile did not go from the face. It is an extraordinary feeling to realize how happy they will be to see themselves in pictures and to remember Ola and Przemek in a dozen or so dozens of years!

And also how much depends on the person conducting the ceremony. Not only church, but also civil or outdoor. We have witnessed many times when an official refusing only a wedding rule, he has refused more than one ceremony of emotion and magic. Remember that you can also influence who will marry you.

Wedding Party - Dwor Afrodyta

Ola and Przemek showed us how a beautiful and joyous event can be a traditional church wedding, when the most beautiful decoration is true emotions.

A wedding party was a crazy party and an even bigger dose of smiles. None of the guests hid emotions in front of the camera. It pleases us every time. Because when He sings for Her (such a surprise), everyone squeezes his throat. We did not miss the opportunity to perform a commemorative mini session with groomsmen and bridesmaids. A short session on the wedding day is our permanent point. There was fun, madness and power. And cold fires turned out to be a beautiful buckle that bridged the wedding and the wedding that young people dreamed of.


Wedding at Instalacje Art Bistro – Alternative slow wedding

As we like climate places for your wedding or wedding. Especially those unusual, even “illegitimate” would like to say. They create an amazing atmosphere and create a unique background for this important event. Custom weddings, alternative weddings are always an opportunity for us to be more creative. We do not have to stick to the well-worn scheme, our attention may go towards seemingly less important topics. We have the impression that in such realizations there are more actions, unexpected “happening”, photographic tidbits.

The spirit of slow wedding

It was one of the more unusual weddings we’ve photographed so far. It was already a wedding in the Masurian forest, wedding in on the fjord in Oslo, or a wedding by the pool. And it may seem that this relationship will start quite classically. But the farther into the forest … whoever knows this saying can expect many surprises.

In addition to the ceremony at the office, everything here was unusual. Marta and Marek organized their wedding the way they wanted. This is the key to live this day in the spirit of “slow”. Celebrate unhurriedly, enjoy, enjoy every moment spent with loved ones. No pressure, according to what’s close to us.

Bride different than white? Why not! Marta looked an average in a blue, asymmetrical dress. In addition, the top of the dress decorated with colorful flowers evoked the atmosphere of the garden party and caught the eye.

Or maybe instead of a wedding limo, old antique public transport buses? After all, crossing with guests through Warsaw with such transport can be great fun. A beginning for even better fun.

 Ujazdowski Castle – place for an unusual wedding

We started the reportage in the Old Town near the Wedding Palace. Lack of preparation does not always mean that the material will be less diversified, that there will be no introduction to the story. After a brief and moving civil marriage ceremony and greetings, the young and the guests walked through the Old Town to the old buses mentioned. The place where the wedding was organized is the art Bistro restaurant at the Ujazdowski Castle. The interior is very atmospheric, bright, with cool details. Delicate flower arrangements on the tables. Snacks and sweets served on fired newspapers and parchments. We must mention that the cheesecake is poetry;) Very intimate and cozy.

And the dance floor? Exactly. The lack of parquet in the interiors does not mean that there is no place for crazy fun. Parquet arranged on the landing at the restaurant. A chillout zone across the street. A few tables, hammocks, chairs, each one as if collected from various restaurants. Artistic disorder. Total freedom, where everyone could find a place for themselves. Someone was sipping a drink, someone else was resting on a deck chair, children were rocking on hammocks, and others were standing and talking at the “bar”. Total non-binding clearance!

We could also not use the favorable light for a short outdoor session. Stop these few intimate moments and emotions freshly. 15 minutes, he and she for a moment alone, and a souvenir for years. We have noticed that for many of you this form of the wedding session is enough. Here, just a spontaneous, short wedding session fit perfectly with the idea of ​​”slow”.

Wedding party in the rain

There was another very spontaneous factor that made this wedding truly special. How many times have we heard: “oh, if only the weather would be good …” And we will say: How good, that it was raining !!! Thank you for this rain. Bah! Breaking the clouds;) What happened on the dance floor was indescribable. The reactions of children (and some adults) to dense streams of rain, a feria of colors playing on a wet stone street, a dream mine of frames.

Fantastic energy fun, great music thanks to Dj Ogniomistrz, play and euphoria of all gathered around the bride and groom. The parquet was on fire, although streams of water were pouring from the tent’s roof and illuminated colored puddles formed a spectacle. And only from time to time a tourist flashed past this scene, bent under an umbrella or in a coat.

It was a turbo party and turbo people. Marta, Marek – thank you!

Magical Wedding in the Forest

An outdoor wedding in the forest

When Ewa and Karol invited me as a photographer for their wedding, which they planned to organize in the middle of the forest, I felt that it would be something special. And since it is possible to organize a wedding ceremony outside the civil registry office, young couples are more and more willing to move this unique ceremony to open air. Could there be something more beautiful than taking oath surrounded by beautiful nature and your close friends and family?

From the very morning, the preparations began, by marking the forest path leading to the shore of the lake, where Ewa’s father built a gazebo. The location of the ceremony was rather minimalist, wooden benches for guests, delicate ribbons and flowers, everything was as if blended into the space of nature without obscuring it, creating a very fabulous and romantic atmosphere. The mere passage by a narrow path through the forest, which was marked by ribbons hanging on trees, must have been an unusual experience for the guests.

Wedding on the lake - Polish Masuria

The young couple was taking things slowly, preparations were peacefully moving on in a summer house surrounded by close friends and family. Everything in the spirit of idyllic, Masurian, yet still holiday atmosphere. On the first floor with
the terrace, Ewa with her bridesmaids, whereas Karol with his bestmen were downstairs like one big family.

Wood and forest style wedding

Karol was the first to go to the ceremonial place, then small groups began to gather to welcome Ewa. It’s amazing how many emotions, love, feelings, warmth takes place during such a short ceremony. The moment of the oath was truly touching, and Ewa did not hide her tears.

Right after expressing wishes, some of the guests went on foot to the wedding party. The huge advantage was the location, everything was organized close to each other.

For their first dance, Ewa put on a short dress in bottled green. It is worth mentioning that all Ewa dresses were sewn by her mother. The party was crazy, the guests were having fun on the dance floor. The tables also include green and floral decorations made by green place.

See how beautiful it was!

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.

Oslo Wedding Photographer

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.
