Ania and Shaun Wedding in Zakopane – Destination Wedding Photographer

Destination Wedding Photographer – Zakopane – Polish Tatra Mountains.

The below short story of Ania & Shaun says it all about this lovely couple. Their love for each other, love for nature, beautiful simplicity and love for family and friends. Their wedding day I was honoured to capture was filled with this love and truly wonderful atmosphere. Guests from England, Sweden and also far away places, like South Africa, US or Australia arrived at this picturesque little town in the heart of Polish High Tatra Mountains to enjoy these happy moments with Ania & Shaun.

Please read their story presented in their own words.

And then allow me to share with you these wonderful moments of happiness, colourful local tradition, family gathering and joy on the dance floor till early morning hours. This is the story I was privileged to photograph. Enjoy 🙂

Over a decade ago Ania’s Grandad Franciszek, a keen lover of rare birds, decided to keep ostriches on his farm in the middle of the High Tatras.As you can imagine this unusual act did not go unnoticed. Distant family and neighbours as well as random tourists were glaring at them in disbelief and were asking him: How on earth did these birds found its way here? Will they withstand the cold winters? Grandfather traded the birds after some time (not only were they running too fast but now were also laying eggs), but we think it was this prophetic event that brought us together some ten years later.

We met in London, a place with people from all over the world including an Afrikaner from Cape Town, surrounded by two oceans and tropical climate and a Polish girl from a small town surrounded by snowy mountain peaks and forests. We soon found out that although coming from two different parts of the world, we somehow shared the same values: family, friends, freedom, space and an undying attachment to the soil 🙂 So rather than a formal social event, we want our wedding to be a celebration of being ourselves between our family and friends.” Ania & Shaun

Wedding Photographer London – Denise and Kieran

Denise and Kieran were really concerned that Saturday 26th of October would be a cold and rainy day. At this time of the year usually you can’t expect much from the weather but it turned out to be a very pleasant and truly special day.

I arrived at The Railway Pub Blackheath just before to meet with Kieran and his guests. The pub was still empty so I had time to have a soda water. After a few minutes everybody started to appear.

Their traditional service took place in St. Mary’s Blackheath Church, just a short walk from the pub. Denise arrived sooner than expected which took Kieran by surprise. He was amazed because she looked just stunning in her 50’s dress.

Although my style is predominantly reportage I still did a few family portraits and group photographs after the ceremony. It took us only few moments and then we continued our journey by old-fashioned London Routemaster Bus. It was a good time to celebrate the couple’s wedding day with the first glass of champagne. Within 40 minutes we arrived at our next destination The Peasant pub in the heart of London’s Clerkenwell. The pub has a Victorian horseshoe bar which features an original mosaic floor throughout and stunning restaurant filled with natural light and the owners circus art. It is a perfect place to host a wedding reception. Soon after the arrival the couple and I sneaked out for a quick 40 minutes photo session. The reception started around 18.30 with perfect food served at The Peasant. There were very emotional moments during the speeches and a beautiful dance Denise and Kieran afterwards. I have to admit that Dj Catfight created a fantastic atmosphere on the night.

Congratulations and warm wishes to both of you! Bon Voyage!

Here are my very favourites photos from that day.
