Anda and Paul had a nature themed wedding in the Transylvanian countryside. They love all things rustic and are fanatical about DIY so it was the obvious theme for their big day. They were married at a church and afterwards they both jumped onto a home made chariot (a chair strapped to a board attached to the back of Paul’s bicycle) to head to their outdoor reception.

“We wanted to go to the church on two separate bikes and to come back on a tandem bike”, began the bride, “but because I couldn’t ride my bike while wearing the wedding dress, Paul found the solution: the chariot! He made the project himself and built it with the help of his father. We had so much fun with it and it was actually our favourite moment from the day.”

The main inspiration for the wedding came from the nature, the sports we do and Romanian crafts. We put a lot of passion in creating the decorations, with a focus on simple and funny things, and we tried to do something that would define us.”

“Everything we did was a challenge”, she replied when I asked about all their DIY projects. “We challenged ourselves to make our own decorations with unusual materials. But our families happily helped us: they made the decorated bottles, the string balls, the rosettes and many other things. We had a flow of ideas and we constructed together everything. When I had an idea Paul developed it, until we had a result that satisfied us. There were many challenges, but each completed project gave us the will to continue.”
