Wedding in Kashubia
I met Magda and Marek in Gdańsk. They told me about themselves, their travels and the wedding they planned in Kashubia in their hometown. The ceremony was supposed to take place in an old wooden church and the wedding party in Sosnowa Osada hidden in the woods. The couple explained they love nature and camping by lake so they were set on having a wedding as close to nature as possible.
When we arrived I immediately understood what they had in mind. Sosnowa Osada is an integral part of kashubian landscape. A brick building with multiple wooden elements is a perfect fit with the forest surroundings. There is a lake nearby, as well as horses and fields. For me, a filmmaker, this setting was a true paradise. We had the opportunity to shoot everywhere and the effects were excellent.
When I found out the party was going to last until 5am, I came up with a crazy idea – after my work was done I would go back to the hotel, take a short, 3 hour sleep and go back for a sunrise to make a quick photoshoot for the newlyweds. Magda and Marek agreed. How does the sunrise look like in Kashubia? Click play and find out for yourselves!
