Wedding in Alemagou, Mykonos – Greece

There were many reasons why I had been really looking forward to Alexis and Costas’ wedding. First of all, they are one of the loveliest couples I have met in the course of my work: they are sweet, generous and simple and they literally radiate kindness and love. Second, they had invested so much time and effort in preparing the wedding of their dreams that there was no way anything could go wrong. (You know, “when you really want something, the whole universe conspires in helping you to achieve it”…)

And third, the place they had chosen to celebrate the beginning of their new life together was the island of my heart, Mykonos. I’ve said it many times, but I can’t help saying it again: Mykonos, with its clear azure waters, its traditional white-washed little houses and windmills, and its unique crazy party atmosphere, is one of the best travel destinations worldwide and one of my favourite wedding destinations in Greece.

The happy couple travelled all the way from New York and their guests came from the four corners of the world. Everybody was determined to have a fabulous time; and we all did! It all started with a fantastic beach party in Platis Gialos, which was followed by the pre-wedding party at Belvedere Hotel and the epilogue was written with the wedding party at Alemagou.

The wedding day started ideally with a pool party. The groom had chosen a beautiful private villa in the area of Kanalia for his preparation –and his friends made sure it was as pleasant as possible– while the ritual of the bride’s preparation took place at the impressive Mykonos Grand Hotel. There were smiling faces all around and the atmosphere was charged with excitement and emotion.

The wedding ceremony took place in a charming little Cycladic chapel, Agios Sostis, where Alexis and Costas joined their lives together, surrounded by loving friends and relatives. The day culminated in the wedding reception at Alemagou with lots of fun, music and dancing. The perfect ending to a perfect day!

Alexis & Costas, thank you for letting me share your big day with you. I wish you a life like a fairytale. And these photos will always remind you of the day when your “happily ever after” started…

Elopement in Santorini, Greece

Adriana and JR have decided to elope in one of the most beautiful locations in the world: Santorini Island.

This fascinating Volcano island has many special venues with breathtaking view on the caldera and the best moment for the vows exchange is during the amazing sunset on a terrace in front of the caldera.

The two of them alone have promised eternal love to each other in the magical atmosphere of the golden hour. For their special day Adriana and Jr have absolutely wanted Livio Lacurre to capture their magic moments.

Wedding in Corfu, Greece

If you want to have a glimpse of paradise, try visiting Corfu, the Greek “Emerald Island” of the Ionian Sea that combines breathtaking scenery, crystal clear azure waters, historical treasures, fascinating traditions, and a multicultural past with the luxury and all the pleasures of a modern cosmopolitan resort. This was the first reason why Christos and Abby, who are both from New York, chose it to host their destination wedding. The second reason was that Christos’s family originates from Corfu. So they came all the way from the United States to celebrate the beginning of their new life there. “Abi planned all the details of the wedding,” Christos explained to me, “but I was the one who decided where it would take place.” A perfect choice for a perfectly matched couple!

It was a fantastic experience, from the private Villa in Corfu to the enthralling sailing trip to the beautiful unspoilt little islands of Paxos and Antipaxos. Guests and family had flown from all over the world – the USA, England, Nigeria – to attend one of the best weddings ever. Wherever you looked, you saw smiling faces. Love and joy were palpable and we all had a great time. And thanks to Vana Efkleidou, from White Ribbon, who coordinated everything, this happy event turned into a unique experience for everyone present. Her skill and her rich experience in the wedding planning industry guaranteed a superb wedding decoration. The pictures speak for themselves… This wedding also gave me the chance to work with a dear friend and talented professional, the videographer George Zorbas. A couple, a stunning place, vibrant colours everywhere, great weather, and good friends – what more could a destination wedding photographer wish for?

Abi & Christos, thank you for everything and may your life be always as happy as your unforgettable wedding day!

A Dream Wedding in Baku

My second time in Baku , Azerbaijan to shoot a wedding was shocked again. Colours,smells,music decoration, feelings and lots of entertainers create a “Bollywood” dreamable wedding. Even if I had 4 hands maybe will be not enough to capture everything I want to. Different traditions and happenings kept me aware for this 12 hour wedding.

Enjoy
