Hvar Wedding PhotographerAgnes & DaveCross-cultural romance on the sunniest of islands

This was an amazing experience as a Hvar wedding photographer! It’s one island in the world where you never need to worry about weather — it has something like 300 sunny days a year — with a ancient, beautiful old town and so much boat traffic you could actually get into boat-spotting. It sounds like many old towns on Dalmatian coast, but somehow, the vibe there is just… different.
The venues were as stunning as they get — the beautiful courtyard of the antique church of St. Mark’s and the 1930s beach club Bonj Les Baines with a spectacular view of the nearby islands.
The couple’s story was a romantic one that went against all odds, with them meeting at university but then living on different continents (not the ones you might expect), always travelling to meet each other. It was a diverse cross-cultural wedding, mixing Irish and Chinese customs.

Our favourite part? The Chinese games that the groom and the groomsmen had to pass before getting the bride! They were colorful and fun, even though the guys might disagree on that point.

At this point, the ancient Chinese customs took over. The bride is locked away in a room with her mum holding guard, and as the groom arrives, it is up to him and his groomsmen to prove that he is worthy of the bride and that his love knows no bounds in a series of games. They were just difficult enough to be fun and challenging, starting with negotiating a price for which the bridesmaids will let him through the first door (in real money, mind you).
After that, there were challenging group yoga poses, squat-tea-making, dancing to her favourite boy band, eating chillicious canapés, answering questions about the bride and spelling out the answers with their feet using scrabble letters floating in freezing cold water… and finally, reading loud and proud his promises to the bride through the closed door (so loud, in fact, many of the neighbours heard it as well).
Quite romantic, don’t you think?
