Kristina & Alexei ~ Gold Coast wedding photography
I was recently lucky enough to photograph a super fun traditional Russian wedding!
After bridal preparation, I photographed “Vykup,” a Russian tradition where the groom arrives with his close friends and family, and then he completes a series of challenges and also pays a ransom for the bride (a term in Russian known as vykup nevesty). What a beautiful moment when the Alexei finally found his bride!
Following the Vykup, we headed our for a beautiful ceremony and some pretty spectacular moves on the dance floor at The Glades, the Gold Coast!
Thanks again to Kristina and Alexei for trusting Yulia Photography to capture your special day!
It has been really great getting to know you guys 🙂
