Marriage without the glamorAuthor: I do not just have to shoot the wedding, but more on order, and I did not feel free in terms of creativity. It was necessary to please the customer to photos turned out "pretty as they," "as at all."
But once again come August - the season of weddings. And this time I was lucky enough to get on a normal village wedding. Not formal, not limited by any stereotypes, and it is unclear who invented the protocol.
In both houses of women cook and remember your wedding, you guys are smoking and give to the groom Pasha "wise" advice. At the same time in the open air, right in the yard of the groom, served table. Is not that in a city where the wedding take place in dining rooms, a cafe, where the dark and stuffy, and, as they say, there is no place to spit.
On the way back, riding to the next bridge on the road before turning onto a country road, the bridegroom bore his bride in his arms. Such a tradition! And the three bridges on the way home.
Toastmasters is usually difficult to cope with such a noisy campaign. But soon I noticed all the "positions" are distributed by themselves. Who is on the farm (now - the co-op), an accountant, he also collects the money at the wedding.
I saw happy people. Free and emancipated. They walk that way because they like to walk. Be yourself, and not to represent someone and for someone - it can afford only a strong people. And not simpletons these rural men and women, boys and girls, as it may seem at first glance. They - the real thing.
