Irene and Petros had a dream wedding in Poros, a beautiful celebration in pure and authentic natural surroundings. It was a destination wedding, and all of the couple’s friends and family travelled to the island of Poros. They witnessed the most wonderful union of these two beautiful souls, celebrating their love as they embarked on a new chapter in their lives. The scenery provided a stunning backdrop to the nuptials, while the sun cast a warm glow over the Aegean Sea – the light was ideal for capturing candid memories of this special day.
Irene and Petros confided to me the task of capturing the love and beauty of their romantic wedding in Poros. And as their wedding photographer, I can say that it was truly a unique and joyful experience. With my camera in hand, I framed the couple’s devotion as they crowned their marriage in the authentic white Timios Stavros church – the perfect location for a heartfelt ceremony.
For their wedding in Greece, Petros was wearing an elegant navy blue suit matching the speedboat and the Vespa, which were in the same colour. He arrived at the church on the Vespa and Irene on the speedboat.
The white stone walls of Timios Stavros church were etched with centuries of history and tradition. The air was filled with the scent of white blooming flowers and the gentle sound of waves crashing on the shore, turning into white foam. The bride’s white gown flowed gracefully behind her as she walked arm in arm with her groom, a look of pure love and joy on their faces. The guests at the wedding in Poros, dressed in their finest attire, watched on with smiles and tears. I focused on capturing the guests’ emotions, the swaying of the bride’s gown, and the groom’s loving gaze – ensuring that I didn’t miss a single detail.
Once the ceremonial act of this wedding in Poros began, the symphony of laughter and voices turned into a solemn silence as the couple was being wed in front of the altar. As the newlyweds sealed their commitment with a kiss, the guests erupted in applause and cheers. The church bells toll, signalling the start of a new epoch in the couple’s lives. The celebration continued in the nearby venue with an open terrace overlooking the sea, filled with laughter, love, and celebration as the couple and their loved ones danced and dined beneath the stars.
In the meanwhile, we took the time for some magical, intimate portraiture. The couple also chose the Vespa as their prop to complement their portrait sessions at sunset – it was absolutely perfect! As always, I love portraying heartwarming emotions and candid laughter during this part of the day. The golden light wonderfully illuminated their complexion, giving them a beautiful, timeless allure.
I continued to photograph the couple and their guests throughout the wild party, while they served the ‘beer cake’ – the iconic feature of this wedding in Poros. This celebration is a beautiful reminder that being a wedding photographer is not just a job, but an opportunity to create art pieces that will be cherished by the couple and their families forever.
