Magdalena & Mathias – Documentary Wedding Photography Zamek Niepolomice
I have been blesses. With many things. One of them being my work. I am writing this post from an airport flying to Barcelona. My work gives me a lot of freedom and allows me to travel. For Magdalena and Mathias’s Destination Wedding I didn’t travel anywhere exotic. I simply flew to my hometown – Krakow in Poland. They got married in Niepolomice Castle which is 20 min drive from my house. But Magdalena & Mathias gave me an opportunity of visiting Hamburg in Germany when we shot their Engagement Photo Session and where they both live. Click here for a link. We also did some Engagement Photography in the woods of Niepolomice during extra sunny and “snowless ” Xmass. You can view the photos by clicking here. The story goes that Magdalena who is Polish met Mathias who is Chilean with German heritage on the Erasmus Student Exchange and decided to settle down in Germany. Love knows no boundaries :)))
According to Polish wedding traditions Magdalena got picked up by Mathias from her family home where they both got a blessing from their parents. After which they drove to the Church – oh and they chose a wonderful , historical Gothic church from XIV century – Church of 10 000 Christian Martyrs – Kosciol Dziesieciu Tysiecy Meczennikow.
The weather didn’t spoil us initial. And you will see some umbrellas and raincoats from the pre church shots. But after the wonderful bilingual – Polish and Spanish Wedding Mass the sun came out and we marched to the venue in its rays being accompanied by the music of a local traditional band. They actually played for us throughout the whole wedding. 2 accordions, 2 violin and a singer. And they played well. And people danced, people dance liked crazy. But before that, the newly weds were greeted yet again according to a very old Polish wedding tradition, with bread and salt – basic but essential ingredients in every house. Breaking of glasses – similar to this in Greek and Jewish wedding traditions took place too. All this for good luck. After that it was all about food – you can see all the traditional Polish cold meet plates and desserts awaiting patiently to be eaten between the endless hot courses served throughout the night- and about the partying and dancing. Loads of dancing. I think my fav shots are actually from the dance floor :) And I almost forgot to mention super delicious wedding cake that arrived in style with some sparklers on it.
I think I could not have mentioned Magdalena’s totaly wonderful wedding dress that swirl during the dancing beautify and of course an elegant looking Mathias. I also have to mention Magdalena wonderful parents who were very kind to me through the day. And of course massive, massive thank you to Pani Kasia – vel Pani Maria for holding the light for me in crucial times :)
