Previously KNOT JUST PICS. Same shit, different name.

For both of us, Cuba has always been high on the list of places we have wanted to go. When we got the chance to travel to the Caribbean for work, we knew that we just had to try and spend some time in Cuba while we were there. Apologies in advance if this becomes somewhat of an essay, but there is just far too much to say about this fascinating place… Most people seem to think of Che Guevara, Mojitos, old cars and the Buena Vista Social Club when Cuba is mentioned – and all this is totally spot on so we won’t need to go into that side of things here. Cuba is currently in a very interesting place – somewhere between old fashioned socialism/still heavily embargoed by the US and opening up to the world now that Fidel Castro has passed away. We knew we didn’t want to stay in a government run hotels (which they all are, and was where most Americans and other rich Europeans who relished in the power of their currencies stayed), the only time we dared to venture into them was to use their internet – wifi and even mobile phones are VERY new developments in Cuba. Since Raul Castro took over, and Cubans have gradually been allowed to explore private enterprise, Casa Particulares have sprung up all over the place – these are rooms in local Cuban’s houses that they rent out to tourists as way of making some money, and provide an incredible opportunity for tourists to see how real Cubans live. Our first Casa Particulare was in the heart of the less touristy part of old Havana with an amazing family (and kitty). Most people here are poor, very poor –  in a kind of way you only can be by decades of hardship. They have very little and live in very small homes yet have the biggest and most generous hearts. Private lives are lived out on the street, and the sense of community here is unlike anywhere we have ever been. People, live, eat, dance and sing on the street and everywhere is full of the most electric creative energy. There is art everywhere and music emanating from houses around every corner. People salsa in the street, alongside those selling bread and fixing their cars. This is a collection of some snapshots from our wanderings around the streets.

  • Cesky Krumlov is the most magical little Disney Land-esque Renaissance town. We’ve spent the last two days exploring this little gem, the town sticks into the Vlatava River in the shape of a ballsack.
  • So many brides ask me “what if I cry during the ceremony?” And I’m always like if you are feeling those intense, beautiful feelings - let them leak out of your face! Don’t try and hold back the tide of emotions you feel. They are real and raw and sum up so much about the day you make it officially forever with your other half 💜
  • Act natural. In clothes you don’t normally wear, and in a place you aren’t usually, on a day full of planning and expectation. Wedding photography is pretty damn weird if you think about it. You hire people to take pictures of you but then have to carry on with your day as though they weren’t there. Getting natural reactions and interactions is always something we strive for at weddings - how you naturally interact as a couple, for us those were our favourite pictures from our wedding, so we know how much our couples value them too.
  • Can I just share an image of a beautiful moment without writing a long caption please?
  • I realize I tend to say this a lot about many of our couples... but Sylvie and Jack honestly had the most beautiful and intense connection 🔥
  • Sylvie and Jack got married yesterday with Cowdray Castle ruins in the back drop 😍

  • This is us. Scouting for tomorrow’s wedding and I stopped Andy so we could get this dorky selfie to document us being lucky enough to be in this amazing place 💜
  • When the light is just killing it, and your couple is just so damn dreamy! Also I’m pretty sure Laura is Drew Barrymore’s twin sister 😍

  • Sparklers have the knack of making everyone feel like a kid! We freaking love them at weddings! Here’s my bestie Stormie and her man Alex loving them up at their wedding 🔥
  • It’s all about finding someone you can laugh with. Life can be really hard sometimes, but having that human that you can laugh and have fun with is everything!
