Why do you want to us to photograph your Baur au Lac wedding ?
I would love you to tell a story of the day and to capture a film that in 20 years from now we can still watch with tears in our eyes.
Why did you pick me as your Baur au Lac Wedding Photographer ?
Completely by chance. I was researching the best wedding photographers in Zurich, came across your profile, knew that I would have little chance for availability but decided to try anyway. So, it’s fate :)
You guys? …What do you do?..How do you spend your days when you’re not planning a huge Baur au Lac Wedding?
Vladimir is a senior exec in a bank and I am a co-founder of tech startup based in London. We spend our time between Cyprus and Zurich and I travel very frequently to London. We travel OFTEN. We have a 2 year old son Marc, and 3 dogs (although only one of the dogs would attend the wedding). I hope that Marc will carry the rings to the ceremony, but lets see if he behaves. For me time with family is very important but also traveling, sports and doing something worthwhile.
The proposal? …Tell me everything (all the gushy details)
In a very Russian/Ukrainian tradition, we decided to get married before any proposals. In fact Vladimir officially proposed 20 days prior to the wedding day :)
A Baur au Lac Wedding Why this place above anywhere else in Zurich?
Our love grew and developed in Zurich. When we met, Vladimir lived in Cyprus and I lived in Zurich, so he would travel almost ever weekend, often catching a few connecting flights to get to me for a day. This happened for 2 years. We also welcomed our son in Zurich, so this city has a lot of happy and special memories.
What experience do you want to give to your guests at your Baur au Lac wedding?
We want our family and friends to experience Zurich through our love story, so this is why we wanted to take a boat out on the lake and then get married in one of the most beautiful hotels in town. A word of warning, 30 of our 35 guests speak Russian (but more than half is bi-lingual) so we are still deciding whether to host ceremony in Russian or English.
