To follow up on our latest post and to motivate also those, who don’t go to gym, we have a story about Lucia and Declan, who met in Irish pub in London. Lucy – as a temerament slovak girl went out with her girlfriends to dance one evening and one non-dancing Irish young man became fond of her. He spoke to her only towards the end of the evening and 8 years later they had a Slovak-Irish wedding in Bratislava.
Before going to the famous Blue church, Lucy and her girlfriends had a toast to a smooth run of the day (I guess the same thing happened in a nearby hotel room, where Declan was getting ready The weather played along since the morning, only after the ceremony, as we were leaving the church, it started to rain. But only for two minutes – as we say – the luck was raining. It was really nice.
Then the “Bratislava sightseeing train” arrived and took all the guests for a sightseeing tour around the Old town. We also left – for our creative photo session to the park, riverside, Old town and – surprisingly – to a bar We came back not only with nice pictures, but also a good mood
When we arrived to the boat, the guest were already enjoying themselves and the wedding party could start. Lucka prepared for the foreign guests a surprise – an amazing slovak folk ensemble with musicians introduced them some typical folk dances. Violin is an essential element in both slovak and irish folk music, so everyone was moving in a dynamic rhythm of the songs. At midnight the typical slovak wedding tradition called “čepčenie” was presented and after that irish guest have shown us their dances..and so they danced and had fun till morning hours…
Luci, Declan, be an inspiration to each other – not only in music and dancing We wish you both many common interests and great experiences!
The wedding season isn’t over yet, but with a certainty I can say, that this wedding at Lake Starnberg was a fulfilling of my idea of an amazing wedding: the newlyweds very nice, decent and kind. Beautiful and for me new original surroundings and few elements you won’t see at a typical czech wedding…
Since our very first meeting on Skype me and Zii were lookung forward to the last August Saturday…the grace and the sensuality in the way Sara was moving, caught my eye from the start. The surrounding of the Sternberg lake with the typical bavarian architecture and the Alpine peaks in the background were a promising scenery for Sara’s and Frank’s wedding photographs. The picturesque Hotel Schlossgut Oberambach is surrounded by trees and meadows, the exterior flower decoration was done by the bride and her friends and the result was truly amazing.
When we met Sara during her preparations, we both had a feling knowing each other for a longer period. Sara and Frank were supposed to meet for the “first look” in their apartment. Their encounter was very nice, they were excited and complimenting each other on their looks
The ceremony was held in a small church in Bernried, which was voted as 8th most favorite german church by german wedding coordinators. The journey to the church was in an oldtimer Setra bus and the atmosphere was undoubtedly great. After the ceremony I finally figured out, what was carried in a decorated white box. Champagne was not only a toast, but also a refreshment during a party on the pier, while waiting for a ferry to take us back to the Hotel. I really liked this concept. The newlyweds are enjoying each other and their guests during a nice weather, all in a good mood, no rush. And when the ferry arrived, we hopped on and admired the beauty of the place.
After the cake cutting and a short break we “stole” Sara and Frank and in the surrounding of the Schlossgut Oberambach we witnessed their love and gentle touches.
This entire wedding was truly a caress for my soul of a wedding photographer…
