The Big Day

First things first – is there anything more important than the unique details that start to unfold a wedding story? The drops of perfume that a bride puts on the back of her neck, the top button that a groom fastens, the jewelry and the heirlooms, the gentle caresses, the ripple of anticipation… These are not just simple shots for a professional wedding photographer; they are the charming images that form the basis for a great destination wedding photo album that will be an everlasting treasured testament of a love story.
The Maronite ceremony took place at the Impressive Catholic Cathedral Basilica of St. Dionysius the Areopagite, in the heart of Athens. The imposing basilica of Neo-Renaissance style, known for its stunning architecture and unique artistic elements, was the heartwarming place where Siba and Lucien decided to tie the knot in front of their closest family members and friends, many of whom had traveled from Lebanon to be a part of their special day. The celebratory moments, filled with love, laughter and happy tears, were just pure romance turned into art for me! And if pictures that capture real moments and strong emotions make your heart flutter too, then photojournalistic is the word you need to know!

Just Married

So, what’s the perfect finishing touch to an intimate Maronite wedding like Siba and Lucien’s? A chic wedding reception, of course!
The ethereal and atmospheric music, the wondrous panoramic view that the rooftop restaurant afforded and the happiness vibes set the celebration on fire. The distinctive energy that surrounded this amazing couple was just contagious! When you are madly in love, you don’t need anything else, right?
And while the newlyweds were on cloud nine, drunk with happiness, I had the opportunity to document all the blissful moments that turned into sublime photos. That spontaneous outpouring of emotion is always the best ally of any professional destination wedding photographer.
Siba and Lucien, capturing your wedding day, from the big moments to those precious in-betweens, deeply honoured me. May your wedding photos always remind you of the words of Maya Angelou: “Love recognizes no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrates walls to arrive at its destination full of hope”.
