Please don’t stop me lover
Burn my heart from the cleaner side
Please don’t stop me lover
Flood my mind
Let me breathe your sigh
Fismoll

So, what can we say about this wedding? Björn was one of the few people knowing it would happen before traveling to the Azores. The main reason for him to travel to the Azores was to be a mentor at Camp Archipelago, but he knew that on the last day of the Camp there was going to be a surprise wedding. What he (or let’s say I, as I’m writing this) didn’t know was that I was gonna shoot this wedding along with my friend Rafal Bojar and Sebastian Nandryka. (Rafal was the main shooter for this wedding and Sebastian was doing the video.) Rafal asked me the day of the wedding if I wanted to shoot along and sure, why not? But let’s not talk about these boring who was shooting what info, let’s talk about what was going on and what is important: Twyla and Gary getting married.

Twyla was also one of the mentors at Camp Archipelago and what I’ve learned was that Gary and her had never intended to actually get married at all (hope I’m not mixing this up now). For some reason getting married in this way was attracting to them and I can tell you it was special. All of the attendees didn’t know about the wedding before (or should I say most of them as Twyla wasn’t the best to keep the surprise all by herself). So, before the camp everybody was asked to bring some elegant clothes to wear and a mask along to the Azores and on the day of the wedding after the whole group went whale watching and to the hot springs, people found an invitation card in their rooms, so they got all dressed up and took a bus to a stunning black sand beach where they met with Twyla and Gary. With a backdrop of sunset vs waves and surfers and all of the wedding guests wearing masks in some way, plus Fismoll playing songs on his guitar alongside, Ryan Longnecker (another mentor of the camp) was the officiant for the ceremony and if by now you were thinking “but was this a real wedding and was there real emotion if all of the guests were people the couple did hardly know at all?”, I can assure you both.  Laughter, tears of joy and lots of beers all around. The vows Twyla and Gary told each other made them cry hard, being overwhelmed by emotions. What a wonderful thing this was to witness. I can’t tell you how grateful I am to Rafal for asking me to shoot along and to Twyla and Gary for having me witness this very special moment of their lives. Oh and I forgot to mention them earlier: the wedding was planned and set up by the lovely Jessica and Adrian, they did a really great job on it.
