As Rab wedding photographer & videographer, Marina and I kind of knew the lay of the land from our other adventures down the Dalmatian coast — a quaint and peaceful little island town full of ancient stone houses, narrow stone alleys and of course, stone churches. It’s always a fun challenge to weave our way through the streets and discover gems in stone atriums, look for stray rays of light and find unexpected textures among the stone house faces.
The town of Rab is small and elongated, but in that small area it manages to fit no less than four churches — or rather, three plus a big cathedral, each with its own belltower. (On the first photo below you can see three towers in the background, with our couple on the fourth.)
The cathedral is among the oldest in Croatia and quite completely amazing. Even better, it turned out to be our ceremony venue, oh wow! You need to see the rays of sunshine backlighting our couple and the guests during the later parts of the ceremony (if you can’t wait, scroll up!).
Thinking back, so many of our shots were echoing through its halls during all the parts of the wedding as our path kept brining us back to it again and again, and our eyes kept getting enticed into shooting just one… more… shot.
It’s irresistible — check it out below — but equally amazing was the styling of our couple. Unmistakably retro, it went hand in hand with the style of the hotel and the whole wedding. And after getting to know Danica and Daniel, we’re pretty certain that wasn’t a lucky coincidence.
They just exuded sweetness, love and charm.
