~Michelle & Nick~

This nice couple from Singapore decided that Croatia is the perfect place for their wedding. They chose me as their Opatija wedding photographer + a friend Marin Mešter since they liked both of our styles and approaches. Since Nick’s parents are from Croatia they were coming to Opatija for holidays every once in a while and for him there was no other place to get married but here.

Over 100 guest flew in from Singapore and London for the biggest and most glamours celebration of love I ever shot. In the first part of the day, I took a few shots during their traditional lunch with the parents and closest relatives in a Chinese restaurant in Rijeka. Afterward we headed to the Hotel Kvarner where the preparations for the big event already started. M&N got up to their rooms to get ready, of course, we followed. And the rest, well, the rest is history 🙂
