Ode to the salt! A desert styled wedding shoot by a very beloved wedding…
This shoot is based on the Ode to the salt, written by the famous poet of love, Pablo Neruda.
Quiet solitude among the deserted dunes, a bride to be is waiting for her sailor who will arrive with a kiss from the ocean. The waiting and yearning is finite, as the love for each other is infinite.
“…I know you won’t believe me
But it sings, salt sings, the skin of the salt mines sings
with a mouth smothered by the earth.
I shivered in those solitudes
when I heard the voice of the salt
in the desert: a broken voice, a mournful song.
In its caves the salt moans, mountain of buried light,
translucent cathedral, crystal of the sea, oblivion of the waves.
Preserver of the ancient holds of ships,
discoverer on the high seas,
earliest sailor of the unknown,
shifting byways of the foam.
Dust of the sea, in you
the tongue receives a kiss from ocean night:
the smallest, miniature wave reveals to us
more than domestic whiteness;
in it, we taste finitude.”
