Wow, where do I start with this one!
I love to travel and I love to photograph weddings. So, when I get the chance to combine the two, it’s fairly simple, ‘I’m in’ wherever in the world!
Alex and Jaclyn’s wedding took place on the beautiful Greek island of Santorini. This was a first visit to Santorini for me and I really hope it won’t be the last, this island is so picturesque I can’t begin to explain.
I travelled out a few days ahead of the wedding to get my bearings and explore a little bit of the island for myself which was just incredible. If you ever get the chance to go to Santorini, simply drop your bags at your hotel and walk straight out to see the epic view of the Caldera! Wow. You will know what I mean.
The day before the wedding Alex and Jaclyn invited me along to a boat cruise with all their wedding guests who had travelled over for the wedding. Alex is from the UK and Jaclyn from Australia so for many of their guests from each side this was the first meet. It was great also for me to get to know many of the A&J’s family and friends ahead of the big day. Alex, Jaclyn and all of their friends and family were so welcoming, I even spent the evening with some of Alex’ friends over dinner and drinks, a really awesome group!
The wedding itself took place at La Maltese in Immervigli and it sits high up on the Caldera with an epic view out to sea. The ceremony and reception all took place here and it was simply stunning. The ceremony time was scheduled later in the day so that everyone could enjoy the incredible sunset just before the wedding breakfast began. A&J were keen to get a few portraits at this time as well and boy did we have a choice of locations and backdrops. Santorini is a wedding photographers dream. Everywhere you point the camera there is something beautiful to photograph.
The evening entertainment was pretty epic with fireworks, Greek dancing, plate smashing and lots and lots of ouzo!
I had an awesome time getting to know Alex and Jaclyn and all their family and friends and I feel incredibly privileged that they flew me to Santorini to photograph their wedding. To be honest with you I am still pinching myself that this wedding actually happened! All the best guys and I hope to see you both in London soon!
