Alex & Christo | Paros Greece
We fondly think back of Alex & Christo’s wedding that we had the honour of shooting in Paros, Greece and when we do we have to pinch ourselves that this wasn’t a dream and that we actually got the opportunity to fly to Greece to shoot an amazing couples breathtaking wedding. Be still our hearts. It was something straight out of a Phyllida Lloyd movie. A one of a kind wedding celebration and experience so unique that even our romantic love loving hearts think that we will have to search wide and far to experience a celebration like this again.
Alex and Christo’s friends and family flew into Greece from all the corners of the world to celebrate their love. It was a week filled with Greek celebrations, rituals and traditions and we where there to capture it all for them on this beautiful island. An island where the waters are bluer than blue.
They got married in a small Greek Orthodox Church that is situated on a beach on the outskirts of Naoussa, a beautiful traditional village in Paros.
The guests had to walk down a long gravel road to reach the church and the church was so small that most of the guests stood outside while the amazing cigarette smoking, ouzo drinking, old priest married them in a traditional ceremony.
They transformed Alex’s parents abode into an outdoor wedding venue where the guests stayed and celebrated right through the night under the Mediterranean stars. We have never. Every fine detail was wonderfully thought out and put together by Alex and Christo. It was truly spectacular.
Here’s to you, Alex and Christo. Thank you for having such big hearts, bright personalities and amazing taste in music. Thank you for making us feel like we where part of your family. We will always treasure this experience and have the two of you in our now Greece loving hearts.
We wish we could include all the photos that we took into this post but unfortunately have to present a limited selection to you:
