We’ve had a whirlwind couple of months. Which isn’t that surprising, it is the high season after all.
What has really struck us lately, though, is the kaleidoscope of cultures we’ve been exposed to.
Serbians drinking plum moonshine, Henna ceremonies, Celtic acoustics courtesy of a Gaelic speaking groom, Icelanders getting married beside glaciers, Iranians marrying Canadians, Sikhs recreating Bollywood movies, same-sex elopements in shady allies and Americans getting married in a Mexican jungle.
If one thing is for certain, fans of multiculturalism would enjoy their lives as wedding photographers. We definitely are.
So, we’re about mid-way through the madness of summer with a few dozen more weddings upcoming, and 2012 starting to fill up with both local and international weddings. We’re not sure what cultures are going to come our way next, but we’re up for anything.
We feel pretty fortunate having the chance to learn more about global wedding traditions while at work.
