Our real wedding today comes from a country that we don’t often get to visit. Anton and Iulia were married in Mogosoaia Garden Palace, a unique and beautiful outdoor wedding venue in Romania. Their celebration was a totally cosmopolitan one, with guests traveling from the UK, Finland, India, Austria, Japan, South Africa and other parts of Romania. We love Iulia’s boho style gown, and how amazing is it that the bride and groom got to take a trip on a hot air balloon after the ceremony? Rares ION captured these superb images, and we have more details on the wedding from him below.
“Anton and Iulia’s wedding was one of the most cosmopolitan I’ve ever shot, with guests from the UK, Finland, India, Austria, Japan, South Africa and even from Timisoara (500km away). Mogosoaia Garden Palace was a dream- the perfect location. I have seen a lot of parks in European capitals, but have not seen any more beautiful than Mogosoaia. The guests were outstanding and great fun, most of them were artists or from television, PR, marketing, advertising or other creative agencies. Anton is the drummer in The Nugglers, a band that already has a pretty big following, so the guests were treated to a live gig at the reception. I think the climax of the day though was the hot air balloon trip taken by Iulia and Anton, and a few brave guests!”
Thanks so much to Rares for sharing these images, we hope to be seeing more of him on Fly Away Bride soon!
