I wouldn’t have thought that I would celebrate a birthday in Slovenia. But like many of us to who follow our passion obsessions (right Kristine?), we suddenly find ourselves in unexpected places in the most unusual times.
Stanjel is a quaint little hilltop town in the middle of Slovenia. I had no clue about it but flew anyway to shoot the wedding of Kristine and Gasper. The only thing I was sure of then was that it was going be wonderful because Kristine, as how I knew her, does nothing less.
Together with familiar faces that I love and new ones that loved instantly, this traditional Slovenian wedding (consisted of two ceremonies) proved to be one of my most treasured experiences. From the ham-and-warmth-indulged pre-wedding dinner up to the love-and-fun-filled and even more ham-indulged wedding, we feasted on great moments and emotions to photograph.
I hope that through the photographs in this feature we will be able to take you back to Stanjel not only to relive Kristine and Gaspers breathtaking wedding, but also see how I celebrated one of my most memorable birthdays. Enjoy.
Special thanks to Marco Pajo for shooting with us in this beautiful Slovenian wedding.
