Lisa & Alex   ♥   Balaton Lake, Hungary

Photographer:   Timea Pictures

 

This week is dedicated to weddings in Hungary! When they visited the increasingly popular destination of Hungary, the very lovely Lisa and Alex (also known as 2People1Life – who are tying the knot in every country they visit as they travel the globe), were treated to a wonderful modern wedding, a traditional Hungarian ceremony and today’s sunshine-filled styled shoot by the very hospitable Hungarian Weddings

 

So it seemed only right to show these fantastic features all together, along with a destination wedding guide to getting married in Hungary – be sure to come back to the blog each day this week to enjoy a sneak peek into what heavenly Hungary has to offer!

 

This retro-inspired styled wedding shoot took place at the ‘Hungarian Sea’ – which is actually a 50-mile long freshwater lake called Balaton Lake, the largest lake in Central Europe no less. With a 70s vibe to the day, a super-cute vintage car, bright fields of sunflowers and a visit to the fairground, this shoot looked like it was fun and then some!

Lisa says:

“Of course, normally we just hold ONE wedding in every country we visit (except those rather large diverse ones such as America, England, Canada etc) but Hungary was going to break the mould in more ways than one! Hungarian Weddings cover so many international weddings that they had SO much they wanted to show us. So the day after wedding 52 we were on the road to our next wedding destination!”

“Balaton Lake is a favourite tourist destination in the summer and also the largest fresh-water lake in Europe…meaning that landlocked Hungary lovingly name it the Hungarian Sea and flock there in their thousands at the sign of a sunny weekend!”

“I got my wedding face on at Sahara Beauty Saloon! I was laid down to have my make-up applied…which is a first but I cannot recommend it enough! I was SO relaxed and barely felt a thing as the MUA got to work. When I opened my eyes I was transformed into a 70′s style diva with bright red lips and eyelashes to die for!”

Timea (the photographer) snapped away with her camera as we got dressed and she explained to us that they were going to create a retro shoot at the Balaton Lake. The lake is a famous holiday spot for locals and has been since the 70′s when the swing and sunshine went hand in hand so it made perfect sense to have some fun and mix it up a little! Once we were ready (again drawing rather a crowd wondering what on earth was going on in the back of our van with all the cameras going on) we stepped out of Peggy just as a classic Hungarian car chugged its way over to us! We were going out for a drive in the famous Trabi!”

“The Trabant was made in East Germany and was considered to be very modern and up to date with its plastic body (similar to fibreglass and called Duroplast). The first one was manufactured in 1957 and the last one was produced in 1991. It was originally intended to be an enclosed motorcycle so with its small engine and lightweight body it was an economic ride for all and Hungary still loves them! Go Trabi-Go has set up a whole company with a fleet of 25 Trabants and offer days out, wedding processions and rally days…you can even paint your own Trabi!! Such great fun! Anyway, so they had us an open top Trabi to drive around in for the day! We laughed and jumped in excited to hit the road in a classic (other than our van Peggy) and followed the team to our first location.”

“We had such a great time with everyone, we took pictures in the sunflower fields, at the vintage funfair (where we went around on the swings until we could barely stand) and at sunset on the water. We sipped fizzy pop from glass bottles, ate 70′s sweets and Timea (the wedding planner) even bought us a nodding dog…that now has pride of place on the dash in Peggy and we affectionately call it Timea.”

 

“It was so much fun and we loved driving around in the old car. Everyone waved and hooted their horns at us as we drove by and we really got into 70′s character!”
