Well what can I say. Yesterday saw the marriage of one of the most stunningly beautiful weddings I’ve had the pleasure of attending! I flew out to the Greek Island of Crete a few days ago to spend a bit of time getting to know the area and do a walk around with the couple before the big day. There were a lot of nerves before the wedding as I’m sure you can imagine, it must not be easy trying to organise a wedding on a island 3.5 hours flight time from home. But Kate and Cos pulled it off and absolutely everyone had a amazing time! Despite the weather forecast predicting thunderstorms the weather held off and was perfect with a slight bit of overcast which is perfect as it creates a lovely flat light for photo’s!
I got to experience some Greek wedding traditions such as the bride meeting all of the guests a short walk from the church. With a mobile band, the bride walks up to the church with all the guests following where she met her Groom ‘Cos’ outside! The service was fascinating and despite the majority of guests not speaking any Greek or understanding what was going on, everyone seemed to be enjoying it!
After the service we took a walk back down to the beach front where a waterfront restaurant was waiting for us all. There was so much food that 120 guests didn’t finish it all!
I took Kate & Cos away from all the action to give them some time to themselves but before we did I got my swim shorts on as it wasn’t long before I was wading out into the ocean with my camera gear to get some ‘just above water’ photos of the couple. Kate & Cos are a perfect couple that naturally suit each other and you can tell the moment they are together! I got so many amazing photos of these two that it’s been hard to pick just one for the blog! Returning back to the restaurant soaking wet from my dip in the ocean the party kicked of with a great music soundtrack from the DJ, a open bar and of course more food! There was even a bit of plate smashing! I could go on for ages telling you every little detail but the photo’s will tell a better story of the day than I ever could!
Please raise a glass for Kate & Cos!
