Life has an amazing way of surprising you in may different ways. One of those ways is it’s incredible ability to reunite you with people from your past, even from a life you lived on the other side of the planet many years ago! This is exactly what happened between Ewelina and her family, and us.
I (Bartek) met Ewelina with her parents way back when in Germany after both our families moved from Poland. We grew up together for a few years playing outdoors with all the kids in our building! After some time, our families parted ways and we lost touch. Fast forward many years later and our families are now living 8 hours apart in Canada! Fast forward even more years and Ewelina is engaged to a wonderful guy named Erik, and both Magda and I are photographing their wedding in London, Ontario! I remember having my mind blown on the dance floor when Magda, Klementine ( our daughter) myself, Ewelina, my mom and her’s all holding hands dancing in a circle enjoying themselves. As I said at the start, it’s amazing how things like this can happen and you honestly never know what life may throw at you and who you will reunite with tomorrow. Onto the wedding!
Ewelina and Erik invited us down to London, Ontario to spend time with their families and of course photograph their special day. They were married by a Polish priest whom Ewelina had asked to marry her when she was just a little girl! And as the maid of honour announced that she is actually standing in for the real maid of honour, Ewelina’s much loved sister Camila who couldn’t be there that day, we all choked back tears. It was a beautiful sunny day with a lot of laughs at the photo booth and an incredible amount of dancing.
Both Magda and I were incredibly touched for many, many reasons. Some of which include being asked to be the photographers for the day but also guests, so we were able to bring Klementine down with us for the festivities, and finally that we were able to reunite with old friends who now feel like family. Ewelina and Erik, thank you for having us in London for that fantastic weekend! We wish you the best life has to offer and we leave you with some of our favourite images of the day below.
