In the category "Rare photos of celebrities" today there is a small selection of wedding photos with a brief story about each picture. So let's get started.
Viktor Tsoi and Marianna Rodovanskaya
"We were as poor as church rats," Marianne recalled. - We rented a room in a communal apartment, ate whatever God sends. They couldn't even play a decent wedding. Instead of a wedding dress, I put on a white jacket and a light striped skirt." The whole "beau monde" of the Leningrad underground came to the wedding. In August of the same year, a son was born in the Tsoi family.
Marianna will live with Choi for several years. They will walk through the streets of Leningrad in winter and summer, huddle in a communal apartment with Mike Naumenko, go with the Grebenshchikov family — Boris and Lyudmila - to the beach, where they will swim, sing, drink and sing again ... Together, without a ticket, they will get to sunny Crimea by train. The conductors will find two "hares" on the train. But fortunately for Victor and Marianna, these are not uncle guides, eternally angry and unkempt, but student guides who have heard semi-underground recordings of "Cinema". Until the Crimea, Choi will sing his songs to tourists and guides. And on the Black Sea coast, he will not be able to talk because of the voice that was disrupted on the train…
Vyacheslav and Marina Butusov
By nature, we were both silent - we walked side by side, but did not talk. The first adult relationship — that's all we are serious. We froze on the way — we went to warm up in the entrance. I put my brand-new briefcase under my feet, where my entire "student life" is stored: a clean notebook, a set of lipsticks that I bought from some huckster, and a record book. A noisy company is rolling down the stairs. And we are all silent: we look out the window, at the battery, at each other... After an hour and a half, Slava gives out the first phrase: "What do you think: do I like you or do I love you?" From embarrassment I drop my eyes to the floor: and my briefcase is not there! I remember that some punks ran by. We fly out of the entrance like a bullet, catch a police "heel". The guards also tell us off: "Watch your stuff!" This was the only declaration of love in our entire life… The silent ones!
Vladimir and Elena Shakhrin
Joanna Stingray and Yuri Kasparyan
Joanna Stingray: "The wedding turned out to be amazing. The official part was held at the Leningrad Wedding Palace. It was very funny. I didn't understand anything that the employee of the Wedding Palace was saying, and I didn't speak Russian. I was taught that it is necessary to answer "yes!". I was waiting for the moment when this woman would turn to me to say "yes!", and I was worried that I might say it at the wrong time. And after the official part there was a party in the Peter and Paul Fortress. All my friends were there — all the rockers of Leningrad and my parents. There was a big concert, there was a wonderful atmosphere."
Mike Naumenko and Natasha Korableva
There probably wasn't a person in all of Leningrad who hadn't heard the name of Mike Naumenko.
"That's where everyone was surprised! - Natasha recalls. - And Mike invited me to a rehearsal. One day Mike told me about a new David Bowie record, and I wanted to listen to it immediately. I even insisted… Mike, slightly surprised by such impudence, brought me to his place. Spit in the eyes of cynics who claim that all rock musicians are self-confident womanizers! There are young men who are tremulous and well-mannered..."
One summer evening, when Natasha and Mike were admiring the Kupchinsky houses from the balcony of Isha Petrovsky, Mike said: "I dream of settling with you in an old castle, but I can only offer an apartment with my parents and a caretaker's salary..."
