Indian wedding was always on my photography bucket list. Finally, last year I got the chance to capture one, but not in Mumbai, it was held only half an hour from my home town, in an Istrian village called Paladnjaki.
This is a story about Naziya, an Indian girl marrying a German guy Florian. After a civil wedding in Germany, where they live, they decided to make two religious ceremonies in Croatia. So it started on Friday afternoon in Rovinj, where their family and friends gathered in Rovinj to witness and celebrate their Catholic ceremony in St. Euphemia church, from where they went for a dinner with amazing sea view. Next day was reserved for an Indian traditional wedding with a Muslim ceremony. The Paladnjaki agrotourism is famous for its amazing Meditarenian architecture, delicious Istrian food, their homemade awarded wines.
Besides all these great details, I was blown away by the great energy of all guests, especially during Baraat, a traditional walk with a groom to meet the bride. Dancing, singing, having fun, repeat! Amazing!
Now I will just let my photos talk, but before that, I must tell that this wedding was everything but easy to organize, and everything came out perfectly well and completely stress-free for newlyweds, so I give a huge thumbs up to Eneja and Sanela from Flammemum weddings, they did incredible work, along with decor crew Design Elite who made this Istrian venue looks more Indian.
