Just dare to imagine a destination wedding in an ethereal Aegean nook…
Mykonos was the fairy-tale island where Lisa and Daniel, a lovely couple from the UK, chose to tie the knot. Starting off with a great pre-wedding photo session and continuing with a memorable celebration of love, we didn’t stop shooting two days in a row, capturing every tiny but important detail in its essence!
The sun-drenched Hora of Mykonos, the island’s port and capital, surrounded by the endless blue of the Aegean Sea and full of enchanting, cobble-stoned pathways, is the ideal location for a pre-wedding photo session. A mesmerizing destination, where nature’s beauty is enough and there’s no need for anything more.This is the dream of any destination wedding photographer in Greece!
The picturesque backdrop with the harmonious colors of the Cycladic landscape, the iconic windmills and the majestic, royal, red dress of the bride-to-be with the stunning long train made the pre-wedding photos look straight out of a magazine… After many clicks, the first day ended with lots of photogenic smiles and some booze at 180° Sunset Bar, one of the most elegant venues in the unique island of Mykonos for holding a pre-wedding party.
Just Like a Dream: Mr. & Mrs.
Next morning, it was time for some must-have wedding photos. It was essential to find the perfect angle and the ideal light to capture all the enthusiastic moments and the unique items of the preparation process. The beauty routine, the impromptu tears and the sudden laughs, the heartwarming hugs, the enchanting wedding gown and suit, the eternal wedding rings…
And then, the truly idyllic and romantic setting of Saint John’s Hotel provided the perfect, jaw-dropping canvas for capturing the excitement of a dreamy wedding celebration. An exclusive private beach that embraces the carefree Mykonian chic, a gentle breeze and a couple beaming happily… What else could a Mykonos wedding photographer ask for? I love my job and getting these postcard-worthy results that can make you feel the happiness of the newlyweds radiating from the photos… ah, that really is always the icing on the cake!
Happily Ever After
And the little cherry on top after the happy couple tied the knot: The tranquility of the Aegean intertwined with a Dionysian celebration to create an unforgettable wedding experience. Little fireworks were used as a signal that the party had started; and, yes, it lasted until the early hours of the morning!
All the candid emotions, the gentle touches and the precious moments of intense joy I managed to capture unveil the love that filled the salty, Mykonian air that night. Well, destination wedding photography is not just about taking pictures, it’s about making unique moments like these ones everlasting!
Lisa and Daniel, I was honored to capture stunning moments of pure romance during your wedding in Greece, as a professional Mykonos wedding photographer. I wish you all the best! May your wedding photos always remind you of the words of F. Scott Fitzgerald: ‘I love you and that's the beginning and end of everything’.
