Giedre and Johan got married on a beautiful summers day at Bodemloos Kombuis in Elgin. It’s the second time I’ve had the opportunity to shoot at this venue, and I love it. Great people, real farm style homemade food and a general rustic vibe.
Giedre is Lithuanian and Johan is afrikaans, so this was a particularly unique wedding, with the combining of two sets of tradition. I personally loved the idea of each person getting their own tot glass, and several bottles of very interesting vodka placed on all the tables. You see, in Lithuania, when you make a toast, you don’t do it with champagne, everyone drinks a tot of vodka! My kind of party.
Included in the Lithuanian traditions are various games that are played throughout the day (in fact, Lithuanian weddings last for several days). The day was jam packed with fun and laughter. Giedre and Johan, thank you so much for including me in your day – and teaching me something new. I hope you enjoy your pictures.
