The article deals with a transnational space that is created through maintaining links between members of a family who live in different countries. On the example of a migrant who lives in Great Britain and her parents who live in Croatia, the article discusses the ways in which different individuals are trying to cope with the distance separating them. Practices of linking places and people, especially travel of individuals and objects, are necessary for sustaining transnational space, but also for creating trans-migrant identities. Participation in a multiethnic wedding is used in this article in the form of a fieldwork for additional comparison of two different cultures, as well as for questioning the idea of the Other.
