Wedding photo shoot among ruins of her own house: Russian missile hit Daria’s flat in Vinnytsia the day before wedding
Daria from Vinnytsia and her fiancée planned the wedding in Ukraine no matter what. The day before the event Daria’s flat was ruined by a Russian missile that hit the center of Vinnytsia on July 14, 2022, killing 25 people.
Daria was lucky not to be at home at the time of the attack because the missile hit 100 meters from Daria’s house, and the shock wave destroyed her apartment.
At first, the couple planned to postpone the wedding but later decided to get married anyway. Wedding photo shoot they decided to have in the ruined apartment.
“When I entered the yard, I saw the roofs of nearby buildings destroyed and windows broken in the whole apartment block. The photoshoot was planned differently, but today’s situation dictates new circumstances, we decided to highlight them, because this is reality. It cannot be expressed in words. I was even afraid to imagine that it could be my house. I did not tell Daria how to pose and what to do. The photos shouted anyway,” photographer Oleksandr Demianenko told The Village Ukraine.
