Both of them are shy and run away from being in the center of attention. (Which, by coincidence, is the definition of what the whole wedding day is about!) It’s likely that if Andrea wasn’t a passionate photography enthusiast they wouldn’t want a photographer around at all. Luckily for us, she really appreciates good photography so she asked me to come from Dubrovnik to Split to be their wedding photographer.
Their wedding was very low-key and different, completely off-script. We practically jump in immediately to the session around the beautiful park of Sustipan, in the centre of which is their special place in Split; they spent innumerable days sitting on its stone wall and gazing at the Adriatic in front of them.
Next on our itinerary are the living, pulsing and vibrant grounds of Diocletian’s Palace in the very heart of Split. Going into the cathedral of Sv. Duje from Peristyle was entering into a peaceful world of reflection and solemnity. Andrea’s dress was nothing short of spectacular — notice the moment when she lets the train loose on the ancient stone floors of Diocletian’s Palace.
After their vows, final leg of our journey takes us to the famous Marjan park-forest, an icon of Split and a refuge for many looking to get away from the throng of the city. We visited the Benedikt restaurant, breathtakingly decorated by the Semper Fi agency, bursting with sweet colors and details.
And, this is where we end our story because there was no formal procedures whatsoever, no first dance and no cake cutting. Just a great meal with the closest of family and friends.
I kept thinking to myself… what a different way to start your married life this turned out to be!
