About two months ago I attended a most beautiful wedding of two long time friends in Latvia! The bride Katja was from Russia while the groom Tom was from the Netherlands - both of which I've traveled with in Guangzhou and Amsterdam!
Their wedding was a very artistic and original event, where guests paddled out into the middle of a lake at sunrise to witness their vows upon a floating dock.
I had the honour of being asked to run an art workshop for their most creative wedding - it was very touching that they ask and I was so happy to be a part of it!
I decided to create an outline illustration of the couple and have guests design and colour in their own version of "ferns and waves," which was the main theme of their wedding. It was so lovely to meet so many people from different countries and cities (I believe the couple counted about 13 different countries from which the guests traveled) and witness their ideas and interpretations of the theme. See below some of the pictures from the workshop!
