Amazing pictures from a breathtakingly beautiful traditional Hutsul-style wedding - by Lviv-based LJ user dali-bude and his wife Marichka (the newlyweds' names are Ostap and Olya).


  1. Very beautiful. Some questions. Are the garments passed down from generation to generation or are they bought new or made specifically for the wedding?

    I love your blog. I always love the pictures of life in Ukraine. I show them to my daughter. She's at the age where she is curious about her birth country.


  2. i second the above - i love your blog!! you bring us close to ukraine and i think there are a lot of people who want to be close to ukraine!! definitely.

  3. thank you so much! means a lot to me.

    can't answer the question about hutsul wedding customs - but will look into it and try to post something later. or maybe someone who knows will turn up here?..

  4. Veronichka, is it Marta's birthday today or somewhen these days? If yes, then, please, accept the warmest greetings for b-day girl from Montreal!!!
