Dubrovnik wedding photography

Earlier last year I gave Sue the idea that I could travel and do her Dubrovnik wedding photography. She hadn’t even thought that I could photograph her wedding on Lokrum Island, just outside of Dubrovnik in Croatia. The advantages were very much in her favour and before I knew it we had everything planned.

Among the peacocks and palm trees

Dubrovnik is an absolutely incredible city. I’ve traveled quite a few places but this one will always have those special memories for me. Sue had detailed their previous holidays there and how it held a very personal connection for her and Dave. A few days before they took Chris and I on a quick tour, telling us exactly why they love it so much. Riding the waves, we took a boat over to Lokrum Island where we spent the day swimming in the hidden lagoon and chasing the peacocks. Sue had chosen a place between the palm trees to get married and over a quick drink we discussed the plans for the day. Imagine this – the sea breeze blowing through, hearing the palm fronds rustling and the occasional peacock. It was quite possibly one of the best meetings I have ever had.

A destination wedding photographers dream

On the wedding day, the weather was stunning. I didn’t think it could get any better, at one point it reached 37 degrees! I had carried a water bottle with me to keep hydrated, but the sun got so intense that it melted a hole through the side. Sue was truly beautiful. Walking through Dubrovnik she was radiant among the crowds of people. You could see she was in her element. My favourite part of the day was having the chance to unwind and explore the streets with Dave and Sue, taking photos in all the places that symbolised their trips to Dubrovnik. We then made it back to Hotel Lapad for them to be showered with confetti by their awaiting guests.
