St Demetrios

20 Jan 2020

Danielle was keen to incorporate her half Cypriot background 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…

It was a lovely sunny day as baby Bobby’s family and friends gathered to celebrate his baptism at St Demetrios Greek church in Edmonton. Family and religion are important so, whether small or large, a baptism is always a cause for joy. See more…
