Rotterdam Wedding Photographer
Irina and Rick wedding – Rotterdam Wedding Photographer. It was an honour for me to photograph this beautiful wedding.
When Irina contacted me, she told me that she doesn’t want to have standard wedding photos. She wanted to have something different from her big day.
That was the moment when I understood that we are on the same vibe. And that it will be fun working with this couple.
The ceremony started at Irina and Rick house. Irina comes from Kiev, so at their wedding were a few Ukranian traditions. For example her mother cooked “Karavaj” (Loaf). It is a Ukranian and Russian tradition to give it to newlyweds. “Karavaj” is considered as a symbol of happiness, prosperity and abundance.
Then we moved towards the City Hall where they said “YES”! to each other.
After the City Hall we went together with the newly married couple to a very beautiful place close to the harbour and had a creative photo shoot with the balloons there. After that we moved to the park. Where guests and many decorations were waiting for us. As a wedding photographer I was very delighted to see so many décor that Irina and Rick organised for a photo shoot. We had Ukranian and Dutch flags, flowers, different letters, leaves and hearts.
All of that in combination with a beautiful landscape of Rotterdam made the pictures look truly amazing.
The ceremony ended in the restaurant next to the river with a beautiful view over the Dutch Windmills.
