We have to admit that whenever a guy from other parts of Europe marries a Hungarian girl, and then moves to Hungary – he immediately gains our sympathy. This was the case with Robin; and even better: he was not only moving to Hungary, but the wedding was held outside of Budapest – therefore, showing all of his friends and family parts of the country literally invisible from other corners of Europe. And, as You’ll see, it worked well – it was a memorable wedding, for sure. :)
We had a really moderate demonstration of what summer means at the Great Plains of Hungary, and a remarkably beautiful, classical calvinist church – just to mention what catches the eyes first.
But there was much more than that – we always try to focus primarily on emotions, relationship and connection between the bride, the groom, the families and friends. And on that day, we had a special time in the evening, when everyone had the chance to congratulate, to have a few moments with the couple. Those were really heart-warming moments, we loved to be behind the lens… :)
We prefer the photos over words, so sit back and enjoy:
Clicking on the pictures makes them bigger! :)
If it was my idea, one could say using the bycicles is just a stereotype of the rest of the world about dutch people… but believe me, it was not coming from me. :)
Needless to say, the bycicles were classis Dutch (Hollander) bikes, Robin’s bike actually brought from the Netherlands itself… so a 100% real one. Must feel like a piece of home (especially after seeing him riding it on only the rear wheel – which seemed to be ridiculously easy, at least for him).
So I didn’t have do anything else just let them to have an evening off, hoppping on the bikes to one of the best parks in Budapest, the Margaret Island in the very heart of the city, and make some postcards with these lovely people in the frame. It was easy to enjoy, hopefully for all of us – let me show a few of my favourites below. I’ll be curious to see whether a bridal gown permits Vanda to ride her bike or not… :))
We have closed this year’s wedding season in Budapest, on a cold but heart-warming autumn Saturday. I was especially excited about the wedding, as we classmates with Zsófi at the university – thus, it was an honour for me to photograph her wedding with Domi.
Zsófi was getting ready for the big day at her best friend’s apartment, in a house just under the Buda Castle. The huge rooftop terrace gave us a great location to shoot some cool images with Pest under our feet (literally the best view You can imagine about Budapest). Unlike Zsófi and Domi, we were happy about the wind, as it really brings life and adds some drama to all pictures – wind is the photographer’s best friend. :)
Despite the wind and the rain, Zsófi and Domi were posing in front of our cameras without any complaints. After a successful creative session they even had some time to take a rest before heading to the city hall – as we can see, Domi happily lived with this opportunity.
As photographers we are always trying to capture those special moments that reflect the feelings of the couple and the atmosphere of the event. When Zsófi signs the wedding registry with tears in her eyes definitely counts to these special moments.
After the ceremony the newlyweds headed to the Kopaszi-gát riverside park with their guests to celebrate the wedding party. There were many (funny and emotional) surprises organized by the guests for the couple during dinner, after which a crazy party followed until dawn.
But let’s not boost the excitement any longer, here are the long awaited photos of the day as a short slideshow – and also a set of our personal favourites below.
