It`s time for holidays

Hello,

When December came already you could feel Christmas spirit all around us. Holidays are the only good thing about winter. All that lights, beautiful decorations on streets, really make me happy. I forget about coldness and I just enjoy in that spirit. Now you don`t care about crowds on streets, even that becoming nice.
I love Christmas markets, smell of waffles and boiled vine.
I will just miss snow, because it make this atmosphere even more special. 

This year for me is special, I will celebrate two Christmases, and for me holiday season will last longer, what make me extremely happy. 

This photos we took in our house, which was already decorated in end of November, yes this year I was early bird.

Photos by my husband on our wedding

Hello,

I am honored to write a guest post on the blog of my wife.
Most of you know me for the photos I do but now I am delighted to share you a story.
A story of our life, love and marriage. This year went so fast and the most important day of this year and the loveliest day of my life was our own marriage.  What a wonderful day it was, no rain, happy faces, lovely food, lots of dances, different languages and most important our families reunited. 

Being a photographer I couldn't resist to take some photos of my lovely wife on my own wedding. I choose them to be in black and white, because I feel these photos are timeless and they focus on the details not on the colors. I am so proud of my wife in all she does and will always support her with photos and new ideas.

We said YES!

Yes, that happened the 27th of September 2014, and I still can`t believe it, but then I see my beautiful ring which is a reminder of my promise. 

When I remember the beginning of our relationship and where we are now I think I'm dreaming. Our relationship began on one interesting way, modern world connected two vintage people, who were living so far away from each other. If someone said that I will find my soulmate on this way I wouldn't believe.
Our relationship was full of missing, traveling to see each other and big decisions. Go far away from your family, friends, your town, and start all from beginning was difficult, but all become more easier when you have big love and support.

Just three weeks before the wedding we knew the date for sure. For that three weeks we needed so much things to do, from finding a place and food to small details. 
In the end I couldn't imagine a better celebration. It was one emotional wedding with families from four countries, and with speeches on four languages :). That differences weren't boundaries, that just made us closer. 
  
My wedding dress is custom made from two pieces in Bosnia. Wonderful Ksenija from bridal shop "Vera" was in charged for my beautiful corset. She made it with so much love and care to every detail be in order. 
Skirt is made by my lovely aunt- her dressmaking salon. I want to thank you one more time <3
Wedding dress is finished in less than seven days, it needed all to be fast because I needed to travel to Belgium. But with my best team all went perfectly.

Shoes were the biggest problem, autumn was already here, and winter collection arrived, and that made me problem finding my wedding shoes, and I found them just few days before wedding.
My savior was Vegas shop in Antwerpen, with this lovely mint polka dots Cristofoli shoes.

Like cherry on top was my beautiful orchids fascinator made by lovely Jessika, who is behind brand Rock Rockabilly. I fell in love with this fascinator from first time I saw it, I knew it will go perfectly with my wedding dress, and I was in right, all guests liked it too. If you are looking for fascinator, head flowers or other accessories you must visit Rock Rockabilly online shop.

Make up as always I did myself, I know myself the best :)

Kisses

Mme Bovary

Hello,

Do you remember this post maybe? In that post I was writing about my favorite Pop Up shop in Antwerp, Mme Bovary. 

I will repeat that in this shop you can find different handmade stuff: clothes, decoration for house and many accessories, all is made with love, good quality of materials and with romantic retro touch. 

The lady behind Mme Bovary- Barbara, designs her own line of high quality jewelry. Her creations are elegant and shine in their simplicity. 

On this photos you can see really interesting and unique head jewelry from Barbara`s jewelry collection.

This pieces suit to every style from casual, elegant to romantic boho style. It makes you shine, even with simple outfit.

Shop is located in the heart of Antwerp in street Melkmarkt 4.
If you are in neighborhood or you come to visit Antwerp mark this shop in your map.
