The Faroe Islands is an archipelago between the Norwegian Sea and the North Atlantic approximately halfway between Norway and Iceland. A remote place in the world that I had always dreamed about going to. It’s a land of mountains, valleys, grassy headlands, puffins, sheep, steep cliffs and sleepy fishing villages.
I was fortunate to be able to travel to the Faroe Islands to document the wedding of Beinta and Heini, two Faroese who have spent their lives growing up on the islands. It was one of the first weddings I photographed where there was barely any english spoken (only to me and a few other international guests), so there was a lot of guessing what was happening and the traditions they were celebrating. But one thing I have learnt as my time as a photographer that love is love and family is family. It’s so easy to photograph this wherever I go.
