Finnish + Jewish Barn Wedding at Martinpiha, Lohjansaari

TARJA + MICHAEL | August 2014

Martinpiha Häät | Lohjansaari Häät | Finnish Jewish Barn Wedding.


I photographed this wedding back in 2014. While I like to hold on to my old work to be able to see how I grow over the years, I encourage your to check out my more recent work, here. 


Martinpiha Häät

“I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine..
אֲנִי לְדוֹדִי וְדוֹדִי לִי, הָרֹעֶה בַּשּׁוֹשַׁנִּים

You are as beautiful as Tirzah, my darling,
    as lovely as Jerusalem,
    as majestic as troops with banners.
Turn your eyes from me;
    they overwhelm me.
Sixty queens there may be,
 (..) but my dove, my perfect one, is unique”

An island on an lake, in Finland.
An outdoor Jewish Wedding Ceremony.
A chuppah.
Readings from the Song of Solomon in Hebrew and in Finnish.
Some unexpected rain.
A crushed glass.
A party in a barn.
Lawn games.
Dancing in the night.
Laughter and joy.

“I am my beloved’s and my beloved is mine..”
אֲנִי לְדוֹדִי וְדוֹדִי לִי, הָרֹעֶה בַּשּׁוֹשַׁנִּים
