Catrinel & Valentin
I promised myself that I would write more about the people I met, about my traveling and naturally about photography. This is the story of a typical Romanian wedding. It took place in May when the weather is just right, when our wedding season unofficially starts. Whimsical weather aside, this month also offers a number of advantages. One of these is definitely the moderate temperature. It allows you to wear a suit without a sweat.
You can’t be wrong choosing The Știrbey Palace in Buftea to organise your wedding. This place situated in the middle of the nature, in the immediate proximity of Bucharest, has a well-established logistics and views.
The preparation And Ceremony Took Place In Bucharest
I got in touch with Catrinel trough a common friend, a bride of which wedding I had the pleasure to document back in 2012. And as a result, today I present to you my favourite images from their wedding.
Catrinel and Valentin started the day in the Dorobanţi district in the comfort of their home. There are some details that you will not be able to deduce from the following images. They had a strong desire to have their photo session on the streets of Primaverii district. So much so, that even the rain didn’t stop them. They had the first look in the church garden at the insistence and cheers of their friends.
The Reception Took Place At The Știrbey Domain In Buftea
The reception, together with the party, took place near the Știrbey Palace in Buftea in one of the tents on the property. Situated at a short drive from Bucharest, this location offers various attractions for the newly weds. It has animated with life lake and also an orthodox church in front of which there’s room for outdoor religious ceremonies. There are 8 places where someone could plan a wedding. Starting with the Știrbey Palace and continuing with the 7 different tents scattered throughout the forest.
