It was the perfect early autumn afternoon in Novi Sad, Serbia. The temperature hovered around 90, but the bride was cool, calm and collected standing in the shady courtyard by the church, chatting with friends and posing for the camera.
When I asked the bride for permission to take her photo, she gladly agreed and struck a cute pose
Outside the gates a raucous brass band played crowd favorites, women in tight skirts teetered on 5 inch heels, smoking men sang along with the band, and an old woman asked for alms. Some linked hands to dance the “kolo” – the Serbian circle dance, children scampered in and out of their feet, curious onlookers recorded the festivities … then shocking fireworks!
The groom gathered his bride, they linked hands to meet the priest at the door, and began the journey to sharing their lives together.
Enjoying the Circle of Life,
P.S. We’re constantly on the move and regular posts will depend on our access to wifi, but we’re posting every chance we get on our Facebook page. Yesterday we captured a lovely act of kindness on our bus filled with refugees, heading to Subotica, Serbia and the Hungarian border.
