If I could choose only one word to sum up the wedding of George and Karina, it would be “elegant”. The couple’s sophisticated style was showcased perfectly not only in Karina’s choice of dresses for herself and her bridesmaids, but also through the efforts of Costas Petrides from Marilyns Events, who was responsible for their wedding at the Marriott Hotel Grosvenor Square in London.

The traditional Greek-Cypriot ceremony took place at the All Saints Greek Church in Camden. Karina couldn’t stop smiling as she walked down the aisle to where George eagerly awaited his bride-to-be. See more…

It was crystal clear when we met this couple to plan their wedding at Hatfield House, that they were bound for life, and that they each felt incredibly fortunate to have found the other. No filter or post-editing magic could recreate that look of absolute love!  See more…

Being a local professional means that Sopwell House is a venue with which we are very familiar. The 4-Star country house hotel is a wonderful venue for all kinds of celebrations, with a Sopwell House wedding always being a memorable occasion. It is a highly picturesque venue with 12 acres of grounds outside and many decorative features within. While guests were tucking into their welcome drinks and canapes captured by our second team, our main team made the most of the romantic gardens for the post-ceremony portraits with just the bride and groom, as well as some group shots with their wedding party. The groomsmen certainly got into the spirit, as you can see!

The couple entered the ballroom to music and a shower of confetti, making their way around the glittering dancefloor that was later the stage for plenty of action, including the money dance and other traditional Greek Cypriot dancing. The video highlights show how fantastic the room looked, with gorgeous rose topiary “trees” as table centrepieces, and the flashing lights built into the dancefloor. See more…

Danielle was keen to incorporate her Cypriot heritage in her wedding to Graham, not only by holding the ceremony at the Greek orthodox church in Edmonton in North London but also with her preparations. As one team of us set up at the church, another was already capturing the bride and her family as they performed the stolisma and sent Danielle off from her family home with their blessings for the future.

The sun poured through the windows of the church, providing a natural spotlight as the couple exchanged vows before God and their families and friends, providing many excellent shooting opportunities for us.

We were excited to be back in St Albans for the reception. The luxury country house hotel is one of our favourite venues not only because the staff there are so professional, but also because the setting is so picturesque. The light cloud cover was ideal for shots in the garden, and the couple were thrilled with their portraits and the group shots we took before the partying started in earnest. See more…

The weather was perfect for Christalla and Chris’ wedding at Orsett Hall, so Chris sat outside in the sunshine while his koumbaro performed the traditional wedding-day shave. At the end of his preparations, the groom looked as smooth as James Bond in his black dinner jacket, flanked by his groomsmen as they made their way to the church. While one team was busy at Chris’ house, another was at Christalla’s, capturing her preparations which included the stolisma that is Greek-Cypriot customary. It wasn’t immediately apparent on the day but, looking back at the images during editing, it is surprising how similar the three beautiful sisters look!

Following ceremony at St Demetrios Orthodox Church in Edmonton, where Father John and Father Evangelos graciously allowed us to capture the wedding, everyone departed for the Orsett Hall reception. The private gardens looked gorgeous in the sunshine, and we made the most of the setting to capture portraits of the newlyweds and group shots with their family and friends. See more…

The joyous occasion of Melissa and Daniel’s wedding took place at the Greek Church of All Saints in Camden. It is a church that our team knows well, being fortunate to have provided wedding photography and videography for many Greek couples in London. I am always humbled by how welcoming the clergy are, and how much care they invest into every wedding service, supporting the couple and their families as they take this significant first significant step into a united future.

It was a rainy day, but there was no dampening the excitement for Maria and Michael’s wedding in Bristol. The day was a fantastic representation not only of their love for each other but also the love and support shown by their family and friends as they took this momentous step. With Maria having Cypriot heritage, our day started at her house where we filmed the traditional stolisma, before racing over to the Greek Orthodox Church of St Peter and Paul to capture the wedding ceremony.

There is nothing like a Greek-Cypriot celebration to reinforce just how vital family and friends are to a couple taking their first steps into married life. Although the bride and groom are the natural focal point, everyone close to the couple plays a role in their big day from the stolisma that helps them prepare, to the active roles played by the couples’ parents, maid of honour and best man throughout the ceremony. Even the way everyone congregates into one happy party on the dancefloor is a testament to the importance of the support of family and friends. We always find it a beautiful and humbling experience to witness these bonds in our role. See more…

Alex and Andriana chose the beautiful 12 Apostles Church in rural Hertfordshire for their traditional Cypriot wedding before celebrating with their guests a few miles away at the luxurious Sopwell House. The entire event went like clockwork, giving us the sort of day we dream of.

The 12 Apostles Church is a favourite with Cypriot brides and grooms who want a classic English country wedding. The former Anglican church sits peacefully in its parkland setting, looking as if part of the set for a film like Four Weddings and a Funeral. The exterior may be English, but the interior is See more…

Dimitri and Bobbie chose to celebrate their wedding at Orsett Hall when they tied the knot. Both from Cypriot Greek families, the couple incorporated many recognisable traditions into their big day which started with the Stolisma at their respective family homes. As the bride and groom to be were getting ready at the same time, we used two teams covering their preparations.

The wedding was at St John the Baptist Greek Orthodox Church in North London. There are around two dozen Greek Orthodox churches in the capital, with this being one of the largest communities. The ceremony was beautiful, See more…

On the Cycladic islands of Paros in the heart of the Aegean, the love of two people, for the sea, for life, was consummated with a truly original wedding. I was there to portray their precious moments and tell their inimitable story.

It was not a surprise that a day before the destination wedding we seemed to have ‘lost’ the groom who had gone for a ‘catch up’ with the Aegean Sea before the big day. D. and C.’s love affair with the Greek Islands had begun several years earlier when they went for a holiday and got hooked with kitesurfing.

Island Residence in Varkiza, Athens –  (updated) – Travelling just a few kilometres outside of Athens one can encounter this immensely beautiful location; Island Residence in Varkiza. An idyllic setting where the sun never fails to shine. Pavlina and Nikos chose to have a dual celebration of their son’s christening and their wedding on the same day. This is a choice many people seem to prefer nowadays. The decoration in Island venue was absolutely breathtaking thanks to the work of Krista and Maria Maroulidou from the Guest Book. See more…

Any bride and groom can tell you that one of the most challenging aspects of planning a wedding is making both families happy. As much as it is “their” day, a marriage also represents the joining together of two families, and it is important to incorporate appropriate customs to respect both the bride’s and the groom’s backgrounds, as Natalie and James did when they wed in Kingston-Upon-Thames.

Natalie’s family is British-Greek Cypriot and James’ is British, and their special day was very much a fusion of each heritage. The service took place at St George Greek church in Kingston-Upon-Thames. The early summer weather was the sort to make my heart sing, with just a few fluffy white clouds punctuating the azure blue skies.

Natalie was a natural in front of the camera and she and her three bridesmaids made the most of their time together as they got ready for the ceremony. See more…

We started with the bridal preparation at bride’s parents house in Cockfosters, North London. The bride was was surrounded by a loving and warm family! 

The wedding ceremony and reception was held at the Langham Hotel London which was decorated with white. It was elegant and made for some great shots! Coming together the Indian and Greek cultures was just fabulous and groom made his grand entrance behind some Indian drummers! There was a beautiful ceremony followed by some latin guitar music.

Where the main reception was held, was the most fabulous place to capture. So many beautiful details and it was so well thought out, not to mention that decadent cake! We made sure to get some shots before everyone entered. After the ceremony all guests were invited outside to the Langham’s Middleton Rose Garden for drinks and canapés. See more…

This lovely couple got married in Stuttgart at the Greek church Kirche der Hll. Apostel Petrus und Paulus. In the next day we had a gorgeous session at Ludwigsburg’s Palace in Ludwigsburg, Baden-Württemberg. I enjoyed so much working in these central-European historic surroundings and I’m wishing to the newlyweds all the best for their future together!

Let me first paint a backdrop of calm sea, bright blue sky and glorious rays of sunshine. This is the beautiful setting of Halkidiki, Greece that was the unobtrusive witness to a weekend celebration. A true Mediterranean marriage of Spanish and Greek family tradition and culture, allow me to introduce Korina and Juan!

Now joined together in marital harmony, Korina, originally from Greece and Juan from Spain, celebrated their beautiful wedding in Kassandra, Halkidiki. Living in central London but with their hearts belonging not just to each other but also to the culture and laid back lifestyle of the Mediterranean cost, it was only natural that they head to Korina’s beloved home-country to say and celebrate their much awaited ‘I do’s’.

Griechische Hochzeitsfotograf und Video

Every wedding shares the same intent, but because the couples and their stories are unique, no wedding is the same. As a professional photographer, I love the role of creating photos that don’t only record events but which also convey emotions and atmosphere. I was, therefore, very excited when I captured Jiota and Konstantinos’ Greek wedding in Mannheim, Germany. It is a joy that, even after so many years shooting weddings, my job never feels stale. I have photographed weddings some of the most vibrant cities, travelled to tiny fishing villages in Greece, and set up my tripod in opulent hotels around the world, but Manneheim was somewhere new for me.

The wedding of Florentia & Dimitris was extremely modern in that it spanned several countries. The Greek couple lives in the UAE but wanted their wedding in Paros which is one of the most beautiful Cyclades Islands. Their plan was absolute music to my ears because, although I live in the UK, Greece is my homeland and somewhere I love to be. Planning wedding over multiple countries and timezones has the potential for complications. Still, Florentia and Dimitris are such as fantastic couple, and I know the area so well that I knew the photos would be perfect. See more…

When both the bride and groom come from a Greek-Cypriot background, you know the celebrations will not be quiet, and guests invited to attend Andrea and Adam’s wedding at Twelve Apostles Greek church certainly got into the spirit. Even though I was with the couple from the time they were preparing until well into the night, the happiness generated by the couple, their family and friends infused me with energy and made it an enjoyable experience for me as well.

As much as I love working in London, getting the opportunity to work abroad is a fantastic treat, especially in my home-country Greece where I’m usually moving for the summertime. So it was with enormous excitement that this lovely couple chose us for their wedding in Halkidiki.

She was a classically beautiful bride in her strapless sweetheart wedding gown with a fabulously full ruffled skirt. The pure white dress was offset sensationally by her bridesmaids, whom she had chosen vivid purple strapless dresses for, and her matron of honour, who wore hot pink. The gardens were full of purple and white flowers, and we had a lot of fun taking photos before the bride, her family, and friends made their way to the church on foot, accompanied by musicians and merriment.

In Greek-Cypriot weddings, some couples adapt customs to fit their more modern lives while others, like Georgina and Evros, retain many elements of their heritage and celebrate their wedding day in a thoroughly traditional manner. Modern or traditional, every couple is unique, which makes our job varied and enjoyable.

Our day started at Georgina’s home, as her seven bridesmaids helped her get ready for her big day, with the preparation of the bride and groom being almost as important as the wedding ceremony itself. Georgina incorporated the Stolisma tradition into her pre-wedding rituals, complete with lute and violin. After leaving Georgina to finish getting ready and get herself to the church, I joined the festivities at Evros’ house where his groomsmen were helping him get dressed, and where he was also symbolically tied with a red scarf.

The setting of the ceremony was the Greek Orthodox Church of St John the Baptist in North London. I have been lucky to work for several happy ceremonies here, and it is always a pleasure to be within its very decorative walls. With a stunning gold chandelier as a centrepiece, and brightly painted iconography by artist E.Foulidis, there is always something beautiful to look at, though none as captivating as the bride and groom.

Bonnie and George chose the De Vere Selsdon Estate as the location for their wedding reception which followed their service at the Greek church of Saint Constantine and Saint Helen in Crystal Palace, London. There could not be two more perfect venues to represent Bonnie’s British and George’s Greek Cypriot heritages than an English country house and a Greek church, and the combination led to some fantastic images and videos. 

The couple wanted us to cover the entire day, so separate teams went to capture the bride and groom as they got ready for the day ahead.

Anna and Christos’ wedding in Birmingham and Leicester was a delight to capture. We started from Anna’s bridal preparation at her family house in Leicester. In true Cypriot style, we were welcomed into an abundant home buzzing with family and friends of all ages. It was a beautiful wedding day and made for a great setting for shots of our bride, Anna. We did our usual close ups but my favourite was capturing Anna getting ready in her parents bedroom and having her mother and fathers wedding photo in the shot with her.

Here is a summer wedding I’ve captured in Athens. The lovely couple chose their homeland as they wanted to ensure their special day was infused with unmistakable Greek flavour. Constantinos lives in Milan and Aphrodite resides in Lausanne. The couple met in the Italian capital when Aphrodite moved there to study.

The couple’s elegant and contemporary style choices were a testament to their sophisticated taste. Working with Aphrodite in her ethereal summer wedding dress with her beautiful smile, was an effortless delight. The Greek marbles lit in the summer sun, with a plethora of historic backdrops to chose from, accompanied by the majestic blue of the sea provided the perfect setting to create a series of arresting bridal photos of the couple’s special day; making it all the more memorable.  See more…

It is a pleasure to work in the National Motorcycle Museum as we did for Eleni and Bradley who had their beautiful wedding in Birmingham. The theme for the wedding was classically romantic, with a pure white colour scheme given sparkle with a liberal application of crystals and diamonds. We had a team at Eleni’s house to capture the fun and emotion of her Greek-Cypriot stolisma tradition. See more…

I love my photography to tell a story, on this occasion that of Stavroula and Stathis’s Greek wedding (Griechische Hochzeit) as well as the their son’s christening. It gave me great joy to photograph their special day held in Stuttgart, Germany. As Stavroula readied herself for the big moment in the family home, I caught the details of her preparations at this welcoming residence. From the moments and details to close ups of family and friends. Smiles, laughs, anticipation, excitement.

Here is a collection of Nikos and Fani’s a wedding. The couple got married in Athens, Greece. Nikos is catholic while Fani is orthodox, and they arranged two ceremonies, one for each Church. The first one was held at the Roman Catholic Church in Psychiko and the next at the nearby orthodox church in Neo Psychiko. After the family and group photos we went to the Olympic stadium for the couple’s images. We then ended in Pallini for their beautiful reception. It was a great pleasure to capture this lovely wedding. Thank you and best wishes!
