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

London Wedding Photographer

I am a professional documentary wedding photographer based in London working across the UK and Internationally. I use a reportage wedding photography style, otherwise known as wedding photojournalism to document the whole day, from getting ready and the ceremony, to anything that your celebrations may entail such as the first dance, meal, speeches and a party. I would also feel privileged to  witness and capture any other forms of celebration that you and your loved ones have planned for the big day. My philosophy is to be as unobtrusive as possible and to capture the unique story of your wedding day. I am more than happy to create traditional wedding compositions, but my real expertise lies in creating images that honestly capture you as individuals. That’s where the beauty is.

On some occasions I work in tandem with my brother Matt who will support me if you require multiple photographers to cover your wedding day.

Please CONTACT ME if you need a wedding photographer around London or in any other parts of UK. I would be very happy to travel abroad as well if you are planning your wedding ceremony outside of the country.
