Sometimes it is hard to describe what one feels during a wedding… I try to explain in one word: vicious. You can never have enough of it!
Difficult as well is to register the day and tell a story with images. Describe love, partnership, union, friendship, family bonds without being involved and let some tears in the way.
Indeed it was an amazing day among these two beautiful people together with their family and caring friends. From the preparation as we arrived, Annet’s parents were busy decorating their house, car and later on Annet’s friends came by also to help. Love and care!
As the preparation went by there were moments of silence were I also stop and contemplate. Annet’s mother watched from far away her daughter and grandchild – and it was beautiful just to capture it! My dearest friend Maria went to see Iwan and register his preparation. When we went to the photoshoot and we had time to talk, I curiously checked out the photos and cried out my emotions! How amazing!!!
Long ago Annet told me of her appreciation for architectural photos and in our photoshoot we had a bless with so much space to “play” within all geometric forms! Not only that – to see two people in love and entangled! Uncompromised smiles, a sort of intimacy you dream about it and appreciate to witness!
She gave me a powerful look that was stunning!
And Iwan was not far from it!!
Annet and Iwan! What a honour to be part of this day in your lives! How amazing to just be there and celebrate with you! Many times my eyes were blurred by tears, to watch you, your family… when I saw your friends at the end of the ceremony distributing the bubble bottles! Love and care everywhere and in little details! I wish you to keep on sharing your happiness with your loved ones! The world is a happier place with you!
Many thanks to Maria Formigos for the beautiful work, your family and friends and the lovely employees of the Edam’s Fort.
