Only one more post on Europe 2010 after this one! We leave for Europe once again 4 months from now so it won’t be long before I’m recapping once again. 🙂
I took several Folklore classes in college, which I loved, and it sparked an interest in traditions and customs in different cultures and regions. I wanted to put together a video from the wedding that shows some of the unique traditions that Polish weddings have, but I was restricted a bit by the groom who insisted that his face not be shown online. Some tricky editing helped cut him out or focus on other areas when he showed up in the frame, but there are definitely clips from the video below that are much more beautiful when they aren’t cropped in. The video is also quite long, but it was hard to eliminate things! I’ve placed subtitles throughout that help explain what is going on, but do keep in mind that these explanations come from my experience (remember I don’t speak Polish!) and may not be the full story.
If you are Polish and have some experience with Polish weddings I’d love to hear your comments below!
