Brits, Weddings, Zakopane

Francois + Nicola | Zakopane Wedding | Two lovers, Rain and a Forest

I’m finding it difficult to come up with words for this post that will adequately describe Franna and Nicola… Their story isn’t complicated, it is simply real and true.

We first met F+N for their engagement shoot last autumn and it was easy to see how they adore one another. They finally got married at the beautiful Zakopane venue outside Brits and it was amazing to see their family helping at every turn and simply enjoy each other’s company. Nicola’s dad was making sure everyone had either a cold water or a cold beer to cool them off on this very hot day! There’s often a lot of nerves on the wedding day, as would be expected, but not for these two… Walking towards the person of your dreams as he smiles at you coming down the aisle… nervous? Nah.

“I knew it was love when he sold his Ford Ranger for a smaller, more economical car, just to come and visit me 200km away.”

The rain showered down just as everyone settled outside, but the cool air was refreshing and left us with vibrant colours and a beautiful sky. From the morning’s prep to the evening’s colourful celebrations, there was an atmosphere of love and kindness. We know that God blessed this incredible couple with not only the perfect day and loving friends and family, but with a deep-rooted love for each other and a lasting friendship. Thank you for allowing us to be a part of your day and for welcoming us in!

Lots of love, Sean and Ilse  – GingerAle
