Croatia; the sparkling Adriatic waters, scenic coastal towns and gorgeous natural light – wedding locations do not get more blissful than this! I was thrilled when my friends, Martina and Nikola, asked if I’d like to photograph a wedding with them in Croatia. It was not just any ‘other’ wedding though. It was the wedding of Martina’s brother. Wow !
Camera bag and equipment securely packed, I flew to Split a few days before the wedding, where Nikola greeted me at the airport. I also wanted the opportunity to visit the other beautiful sights of Croatia – after the wedding !
The drive from the airport to his home was very informative as Nikola explained the sights we passed, and also the location of the bridal prep for the wedding in two days time.
After a quick stop at the apartment, where I was greeted by Martina, we went for lunch. Words cannot describe the location of the restaurant I was taken to; Zora Bila – amazing. I had a dish which is popular, but rarely found in Split. I ate Skradinski Rizot (Skradin’s Risotto). OMG ! The taste was heavenly. My only regret being I was unable to have it again on my trip.
The next day was spent with a little sight seeing of Split, what a beautiful city and rest.
We woke up early on the day of the wedding. We gathered our camera bags and light stands and drove to where the groom was getting ready. Then it was off to the bride’s home.
Once she was ready, we waited for the groom and his entourage to arrive. It’s traditional in Croatia for the groom to come and collect the bride.
Fortress of Klis
Before going to the church to get married, the couple had a food and drinks reception at The Fortress of Klis. Game of Thrones will know this landmark very well. It’s customary to drive between venues with the Croatian flag flying, accompanied by loud music.
