It’s not everyday that we receive gorgeous images all the way from Slovenia, but when we get it, they are nothing short of beautiful. Photographer Nastja Kovacec dreamed up of a sweet intimate setting in a field away from the city buzz, and intimate it was:

From the photographer, Nastja: when I first thought of doing a styled shoot, I immediately wanted it to be a DIY rustic styled wedding. I had a clear vision where I wanted it to be and who’s going to pose as newlyweds. The shoot took place in Slovenia, on the outskirts of a beautiful idyllic camp, surrounded by lakes, rivers and forest. I wanted to incorporate mostly homemade decor made out of wood, paper and other natural materials.

Martina and Robert were my first choice of a couple, because they are just as natural and spontaneous as it gets. They’ve been together for seven years, so the chemistry was definitely there. I wanted it to be something special on Slovenian scene, so I thought bridesmaids and groomsmen were a good way to showcase that, because Slovenian weddings tend to be a little different. For a playful touch we created a sweet corner for the girls and cigar & whiskey corner for the boys!
