‘Hello San. My name is Anna and next year I’m getting married to my Steve’… These were the first words I read in the email and somehow right then I knew this wedding was going to be special. There was something incredibly warm, incredibly touching about how Anna called her soon-to-be husband hers, and the fact that she loved my work made me realise we were definitely going to be a good fit.
Because gorgeous Anna and her handsome groom Steve live in Germany and picked Greece as the destination for their big day, all of our communication, including their consultations, had to involve the magic of modern technology: Skype and emails. And after months of planning, discussions and preparations, I walked into the hotel room to see the most gorgeous bride getting ready… The wait was over and the big day was here.
Steve and Anna didn’t have a traditional first dance – after all, not everybody enjoys being the centre of attention of hundreds of people while dancing! This short moment was just for the two of them, secretly shared away from their many guests…
The evening reception was very important to these two as so many of their nearest and dearest flew out to Greece to celebrate their big day with them… Which is why we were there to document not just the beautiful ceremony, but also the colourful evening that followed!
Here’s to Mr and Mrs James! May your married life be as filled with laughter, warmth and carefree dancing as your wedding day!
