I had heard so much about this amazing place where we were going to shoot Ewelina and Jay's wedding in Poland and I was super excited when the time finally came to see it! As we touched down just outside Bydgoscz, all I could see was forest and trees, it was already like flying into a fairy tale. As we headed to the historic town of Torun with the sun blazing down, we passed windmills and farms, the landscape was beautiful. 

The town itself was also very pretty, filled with medieval architecture and cobbled streets it was the perfect location for a romantic wedding. As always we had a little rekkie of the place on day 1 which involved lots of walking, lots of pancakes and a couple of beers. We found some great spots for photos and were getting more and more excited about the big day. 

On the morning of the wedding I arrived at Ewelina's mum's house where bride, groom and baby Lily were all getting ready. The atmosphere was so relaxed and little Lily had a great time in the makeup bag! 

Animal lover and equestrian Ewelina had a huge surprise that brought a tear to her eye when a traditional horse and carriage pulled up to transport them to the church, a lovely surprise wedding gift from her mother. 

The church itself was a huge and ornately decorated medieval building, the lighting was quite tricky but what a stunning backdrop get married against. 

Lily happily explored the incredible church and smiled all the way through the ceremony, although unsurprisingly she didn't seem all that impressed when her own time to shine came as she was dunked into the baptismal font!

After the wedding ceremony, the crowd of guests took to the street and formed a wedding parade headed for the reception. On arriving at the hotel, the happy couple wasted no time and headed straight for the dance floor, throwing their champagne flutes over their heads and smashing them both, a tradition meaning good luck!

From there on in it was a festival of food and dancing.... oh and of course vodka. Copernicus the great astronomer hailed from the town of Torun and so the copious amounts of Copernicus vodka made a very fitting aperitif!

The celebrations carried on all night, with games, more dancing and more food!! This wedding had such a great vibe, relaxed and fun but still fairytale. It is certainly one I will never forget and if you were wandering where to go on holiday next time, look up Torun, one of the most beautiful, sunny and friendly places I have visited. Well worth a visit... we're hoping we get invited back for the anniversary trip!
