B D

There is a place, a really old looking place, where I used to go when I was little. This place was enclosed by the laughter of the people who worked there, and had beautiful corridors where I used to run. Like most people there, I remember my mother rushing and looking busy, and laughing and drinking coffee on the footsteps. And I remember me dancing in circles, diving my hands in the fountain, throwing water in the air and pretending the drops were flower petals falling on my head. I have always envisioned my wedding there. (...)

the concept

I envisioned a ceremony, simple and organic, echoing with the voices of family and friends, bringing back the sounds that once were. We had planned for this session to be poetic and effortless but what we got was much more than that. When working with a staged environment, it is sometimes hard to portray a feeling, but it was so easy for them to say their vows. We were hoping for a glimpse of a beautiful wedding ceremony and got the most perfect exchange of love - body and soul. The ceremony was staged, family and friends were specifically placed, but when Beta walked into the cloister to meet Daniel, it was like I was there again, dancing in circles. Their love was like a breath of fresh air. And their family and friends, once perfectly positioned, were now kissing them, and hugging them and laughing with them, because they got married when they actually didn't. It took me by surprise to be honest. How could their love be a memory of mine? To this day I still don't know. All I know is that there is a place, a really old looking place, where children dance and throw water, and couples get married without actually doing so, and where people laugh and laugh echoes throughout the corridors.
