Greek Wedding Photography & Videography

A Greek wedding ceremony captured by a team of five photographers and videographers

 

My job as a Greek wedding photographer and videographer has taken me around the world. I and my team have been present at countless weddings and have had the honour of being treated like good friends by Greek families in London and the UK, Greece, US, Germany, and Australia.
Σας ευχαριστούμε!

I say photography is my job, but it is genuinely more of a passion. There is nothing more uplifting than a Greek wedding and seeing families show love and support through traditions that have lasted for centuries. Being Greek myself means that the customs are very familiar, and I appreciate the importance and value they have in society today.

The adage “the more things change, the more they stay the same” applies perfectly to weddings. We have been providing Greek wedding photography and videography for 17 years, and the cameras, lenses, drones and post-editing equipment we use now is vastly different from the way we worked when we started. What hasn’t changed, however, is the sentiment at the heart of each wedding ceremony - the union not only of two people but of two families. And when you’re Greek, that’s a lot of family!

Your wedding day is one of the most special days of your life. You will invest more time and money than you care to admit, but it will be worth it when you see the love and joy you feel reflected in those around you. For all these hours you spend organising your special day, it will fly past as if over in a matter of minutes and you will find yourselves sitting there a day later, wondering how it was over so quickly.

That’s where we come in.

I work with an experienced team of photographers and video operators to deliver a service that covers everything from the stolisma to zeibekiko. We can be there as you prepare to leave your family home, as you exchange vows in front of all of your loved ones, and as you celebrate long into the night. We also have a vast knowledge of the culture as well as all the traditions, every Greek dance, and of course all the key moments of the Greek orthodox ceremony.

Your beautiful big day can be just one chapter in your love story. Having the best Greek wedding photographers on your team will mean that however often you tell your story over the years, the sweet details will never fade. We work extensively in the south-east and knowledge as a Greek wedding photographer in London means that we are familiar with all of the best venues and can recommend locations for your newlywed portraits.


Whether you live in another country or are planning a destination wedding, you can count on Nektarios and his team to be there.

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 half Cypriot backround and heritage in her wedding to Graham, not only by holding the ceremony at the Greek orthodox church in Edmonton 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 Cypriot 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 Herts 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…

Hers is Alex and Andriana’s image gallery and wedding videography at Sopwell House. The couple chose the beautiful Twelve Apostles Church in rural Hertfordshire for their traditional Cypriot ceremony 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…

What do you get when you take a Greek-Cypriot bride and a British-Nigerian groom? The answer is a spectacular wedding full of music, colours and laughter! We loved having the opportunity to capture all the wonderful moments of their special day at Rosewood Hotel. 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 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 of the 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…
