I was dreaming to shoot a traditional wedding. So it came true this Winter. This was the coldest day of this Winter, the thermometer shown – 21 C. Shefige and Nasimi met 4 years ago in Baku where lives the groom. The bride is from Tallinn, so they started to write to each other and meet in Summers. Azerbaijani wedding was really interesting to see because of national traditions. Shefige and Nasimi were fumigated with some special herbs, the house was decorated with red cloths and angels on it – they say it wards off evil spirits. The wedding hosted 400 guests but was there was no rings’ exchange as this was only a women wedding. The girl becomes an adult and as a sign of saying “goodbye” to the childhood she becomes a big toy. After this women wedding the couple will got to the capital of Azerbaijani Baku in order to take part in a real wedding with the rings etc.
