Romanian Wedding with a Wedding Cake Calamity: Anne & Ionut

Be Light Photography Wedding (42)

Anne and Ionut were married in Bucharest, Romania. Their ceremony was at Visarion Church and the reception, Domenii Plaza Hotel. “Our wedding was based on us”, wrote the bride, “classic, funny, yummy, happy, not ordinary nor extraordinary… We didn’t follow what we ‘should do’ instead we followed our hearts. We wanted to have fun at our wedding, so this was the only theme really!”

“We used wedding blogs for most of our ideas and kept things quite simple. We bought things online and in Ikea. We had lots of nice, simple flowers and candles that really made a great setting. There is a saying in Romania, that food and music make your wedding. In our case, we’d like to believe it was not only the food and music, but they surely helped.”

“We had a funny moment when we surprised the guests by having a fake wedding cake which was smashed the floor ‘by mistake’. It was kinda silly but got the best reactions ever – my aunts started to cry and some friends wanted to still try and eat it! In the end everyone started to applause and tried to encourage us that the wedding was not ruined… and then we bought out the real cake and everyone laughed!”

    In Russia we have now this tendency with a fake cake) More and more pairs do it on their wedding

  2. Such amazing emotion captured in these photos. Most photographers focus too much in eye candy shits and forget the wedding is an expression of emotion of the people involved. Great photography!!

  3. One of the most beautiful dresses I have ever seen.

    I completely agree about food and music being at the top of the list for a good wedding too! (Musician, heavily biased, not much!)

    Congratulations on your wedding, Anne and Ionut.

  4. Oh my gosh, these are some of the dreamiest wedding photos ever! I love the bride’s expressions, she’s such a beauty. And that’s a pretty funny idea about the cake, I can just imagine peoples’ reactions! It all looks beautiful and so fun as well.

  5. Gorgeous photos! I love the one of the bride on the bike! What a clever idea to have a fake cake! I bet the guests were so shocked! Very funny though!:)
