Simplicity at the water-front


Some of the most striking wedding photos are those found near water, whether it’s the beach or a river or a lake and when it comes to decorating I say the simpler the better. Nature is your friend! No elaborate tulle-covered lattice is needed when you’ve got built in (and cheap!) decorations. Living in Denmark I’m always amazed how the Scandinavians embrace nature in many parts of their life and a wedding is no exception. These are a collection of some of my favorite Scandinavian wedding shots shot near water. Notice how they are not over-the-top, but keep to a simple theme like a simple row boat or an unfussy bouquet.
