Summer City Wedding
What an amazing day this was. Agate and Mat’s Destination Wedding Riga, Latvia was such a pleasure to photograph.
The couple are one of the nicest and most relaxed bride and grooms you could wish to meet. Everything about their special day was perfect. Day started by me photographing Agate at the hotel as she got ready with her bridesmaid. Such a happy atmosphere during the bridal preparations. The bride Agate, I think, definitely wins the prize for being the most relaxed bride ever! Very multi-talented she had put so much effort in the planning and preparation of her wedding. She is a wedding planner herself!
Happy and relaxed was the moto of the day. Vibe of the day was one of happiness and celebration, we had beautiful weather too. The sun didn’t stop shining and it was nothing less than this bride and groom deserved.
The historic Great Cathedral , where couples get married, is absolutely stunning and has so much character. You can feel the history of the place as you walk through the doors. It really is an incredible space to have a ceremony. The garden in particular, where the drinks reception took place, looked beautiful, especially with this being a summer wedding in the city.
After the ceremony and drinks reception around the City Centre, we all made our way over to the Lodge for the wedding reception. This worked really nicely- that the bride and groom had prepared special games for their guests after the speeches. This added to the relaxed and unique feel of the day. Then it was time to party!
I would like to make a special mention to all the staff at Lodge who were fantastic to work with and offered so much help too. It really makes a difference when as a wedding photographer you are welcomed so much on the day so a big thank you to everyone involved for that.
Biggest thank you of all though goes to Agate and Mat for letting me capture their amazing wedding day for them. It has been so nice getting to know you both and I wish you both all the very best for your future together. I know it will be a very long and happy one.
