8th Wedding - La Paz, Bolivia

wedding-bolivia-la-paz

Sergio & Daniela

[[This second wedding we shot in Bolivia was right the next weekend after the beautiful wedding of Omar and Ana. We got contacted by Grace, and was she a joy to work with :) She wrote us on her own, explained everything and met us prior to the wedding. They own a beautiful place Los Duendes in the southern part of La Paz, actually near from the place we were staying. We had to prolong our visa and vehicle permit in order to do so, but we are so glad we did :)///This second wedding we shot in Bolivia was right the next weekend after the beautiful wedding of Omar and Ana.

Veľmi milo sa nám na začiatku ozvala Grace, ktorá vlastní krásne priestory Los Duendes, že sa u nich chystá svadba, ktorá by sa nám mohla páčiť. Po stretnuti s Grace sme sa rozhodli zdokumentovat svadbu Sergia a Daniely a tak sme si radi predlzili pobyt v Bolivii.]]


[[During the wedding, Grace was all the time there on the right spot, taking care and coordinating the preparations, ceremonies and the reception. They used the Los Duendes beautiful garden to it's full potential - there were different decorations here and there, that caught the attention of the guests and made sure they were enjoying their time. The ceremonies (religious and civil, more on that later) were also happening in two different places. The civil ceremony was scheduled for the midday, so there were beautiful small parasols prepared for the guests.///During the wedding, Grace was all the time there on the right spot, taking care and coordinating the preparations, ceremonies and the reception.

Využili naplno potenciál krásnej veľkej záhrady, na ktorej boli rozmiestnené rôzne dekorácie, ktoré upútali a zabavili čakajúcich hostí. Zároveň sa jednotlivé obrady konali na rôznych miestach. Civilný v ovocnom sade a cirkevny, o par hodin neskor, v altánku. Keďže sa civilný obrad odohrával okolo poludnia, boli pre hostí pripravené krásne farebné slnečníky.]]

[[After the ceremony, it was time for the symbolic "pouring of sand" -  the newlyweds are pouring sand of two different colours into one vase, symbolizing the inseparability of the couple. After that a simple but beautiful prayer and throwing some flower petals on the couple when they were leaving :)///After the ceremony, it was time for the symbolic "pouring of sand" -  the newlyweds are pouring sand of two different colours into one vase, symbolizing the inseparability of the couple.

[[While waiting for the civil ceremony to begin, the time was usefully spent by taking pictures with family and friends and some refreshments. After that it was time for the first dance and for a toast. :)///While waiting for the civil ceremony to begin, the time was usefully spent by taking pictures with family and friends and some refreshments.

[[After touching toasts full of love and best wishes, we moved to civil ceremony that took place in the summer house outside. An interesting fact about marriages in Bolivia - the official civil ceremony is always mandatory. If you wish to have a religious ceremony, you just have to have two ceremonies. So that's what most people do.///After touching toasts full of love and best wishes, we moved to civil ceremony that took place in the summer house outside.

Menšia zaujímavosť ohľadom svadby v Bolívii - ak chcete mať cirkevný obrad, vždy musí nasledovať (alebo predchádzať) aj ten civilný - takže obrady musíte mať dva separátne. Nedá sa proste podpísať papier navyše pre štát. :)]]

[[There was a number of surprises waiting for the guests. The first one, which was news also for the newlyweds, was from Daniela's brother - he was singing for a couple dancing contemporary ballet. It was simply brilliant.///There was a number of surprises waiting for the guests.

Všetkých hostí dokonale uchvátili. ]]

[[It wouldn't be a wedding without the cake cutting either :) The cake was delicious, they definitely know how to make an excellent wedding cake in Bolivia. The whole party ended with the bouquet & garter toss... with a small twist. It wasn't garter but boutonniere toss...and the guys jumped away from it when groom threw it to them :) In the end, there was one brave man who saved the party and picked it up - kudos to you, brave guy. :)///It wouldn't be a wedding without the cake cutting either :) The cake was delicious, they definitely know how to make an excellent wedding cake in Bolivia.

Ženích hádzal svoje svadobné pierko, pred ktorým všetci slobodní muži radšej utiekli :) Nakoniec sa však našiel jeden smelý mladik..]]
