Wedding in Transylvania // Kinga & Radu

wedding in transylvania

Put the kettle on because the story of this romantic wedding in Transylvania is a long one!  Last month I was able to cross one item off on the bucket list when I was given the opportunity to travel to Transylvania, Romania.  Transylvania had been one of those places that you grow up hearing about in books and movies and to be able to finally visit this amazing part of the world and document a love story there was pretty much a dream come true!

Before you travel to a new country for the first time you try and imagine how it will be and I can easily say that Romania blew all of my expectations out of the water.  The incredibly friendly people, the culture, the food and the sheer beauty of the landscape was an experience I hope to re-live again in the future.

Kinga and Radu’s (a super-talented wedding photographer from Romania) wedding day took place on a perfect summer’s day, deep in the beautiful Romanian countryside.  One of the most moving parts of the morning was when Kinga and Radu exchanged gifts (without seeing one another) before the ceremony.  It was a beautiful moment to witness and it became very clear that these guys shared a very special connection together.

After an emotional ceremony in a lovely wee village church everyone spent a totally chill afternoon eating, laughing and relaxing outside and an epic pyrotechnics show ended the evening.

The following day we drove towards the Transylvanian mountains with no idea of what an unforgettable experience we were in for.  After an afternoon of shooting in the forest and rivers it was literally a race against time to make it to an elevated spot before the sun descended behind the mountains.  Being there in that moment as the light disappeared and the fog quickly moved in was an experience I’ll always remember

It was an honour documenting Kinga and Radu’s wedding in Transylvania and I’m grateful for all their hospitality and kindness.  They really took care of me and made the stay so enjoyable.  Lastly I want to thank my talented and dearest friend, Robby Capy from Capyture Photography for joining me on this adventure.

Hope you enjoy this story from Romania.
