Sīka maza dvēselīte
“While planning wedding with Krišjānis, we were very clear about the events we did not want to include in ceremony, but we lacked a clear vision of what we wanted.
Deep in our hearts we both had a dream to own and wear our archeological costumes. However, it seemed too expensive and difficult at that time.
People around always says – all you have to do is let your good thoughts into universe and everything will happen!
Truly!- It happened!
As we wished,various successful coincidences put little thing together and in July 2016 we said YES to each other not only in ancient traditional latvian costumes, but we also had a ceremony enagaged with most beautiful traditions of our ancestors. It felt only natural that we should celebrate furhter life events with traditional rituals. So, for our both sons Kārlis and Indriķis we had no doubt to include Latvian traditonal rituals such as “pirtīžas” and krustabas, gathering the closest family members in the presence of songs, dances and the power of nature. Magical time to engage with our traditons! It is difficult to describe the thrill of these moments, the joy and the overflowing love. You can only experience it yourself”- Egita tells.
Egitas family is special, because they are pure example how to engage with Latvian traditions, include them in daily life rituals. She with her husband Krišjānis and 2 kids living in countryside house. This summer I was happy to document and capture their traditional christening – Krustabas of their youngest son Indriķis.
