After our own wedding in Ottawa (really excited to share photos of that soon), Joel and I flew to Poland for a reception in my hometown (Szklarska Poręba) with my extended family. I can’t describe how over-the-moon we were and still are from that celebration. My amazing mom, cousin Aga and her husband Andrzej and our aunts and uncles planned the whole day for us. We celebrated in a lodge on a mountain top, surrounded by family that I hadn’t seen in at least six years. This celebration really goes to show, that all you need for a wedding are the people that love you (and a good photographer). Joel and I photographed it ourselves, with the help from a little friend called ‘vodka’ – you can see a few of the photos from our day below.
We would give anything to go back and shoot another event there. Curious about destination weddings in Poland? Drop us a line and wait for an upcoming blog post about a few venues we visited. If you’ve always wanted to get married in a castle in Europe but the price tag has held you back, just wait and see what Poland has to offer at a fraction of the cost. Stay tuned and enjoy!
