Without a doubt weddings are one of those celebrations that gathers together the biggest groups of friends. That is why my #36 time is inspired by a wedding party. Here you will find many ideas which will help you to plan the best of wedding parties. From the location to the décor, from the flowers to the cutlery and the dishes, encompassing the whole concept of the party right down to the delicious meals. Take your time and enjoy this very romantic photoshoot which was created during the last warm days of September, when the sun shone bright and the forests were still a shimmering green. I expect my pictures will inspire and give you some great new ideas, particularly to many of you who still await their special day.
This time the incredible dishes were created and prepared by Jevgenij Volkov, the chef of the restaurant, “Apvalaus Stalo Klubas”. Those who adore grilled food and the smell of smoked wood will love these recipes – everything from the appetizer to the dessert is prepared on the barbecue.
This new photoshoot was pretty unique and challenging as I had to recruit the biggest of teams up to now to create it. In order to reach the forest (by the way, many of my friends and acquaintances were enjoying the last days of summer in the forest and were witness to my photo shoot there) we had to drive there by bus. We couldn’t fit everyone and all of the equipment into one car!
I would like to say a big thanks to the friends of my project: Big Green Egg Lietuva – all the dishes of this photoshoot were prepared on their superb barbecue, Cutipol for the luxurious cutlery which arrived from Portugal just one day before the shoot, BoConcept for the minimalistic interior which I transposed to the forest, Soiree for the most beautiful bridesmaid’s bouquet and flowers on the table, Choco.lt for the romantic bulbs, Valdasstudio for the handmade dishes, Bruknės vestuvės for the forest themed table décor and unbelievable goodwill during the photoshoot, Robert Kalinkin for the stylish bridesmaid’s dress, E&M TIES Gentlemen store for the groom’s accessories and Julija Estko for the make-up 🙂 And as we say, last but not least, thanks a million to Andrius Solominas for all of his help!
